I agree that the Jollenkreuzer is a lovely boat but what charms me most about that photo is the detailing in the gunwhales/bulwarks, the quality of the brightwork and the simple charm of a crew dressed gentleman style to go sailing. The cabin has a slightly frumpy charm atop a lovely hull.

I can't see what you don't like about the Sliver's lines; I, for one, would love to sail her. The owner has avoided the brightwork and `bronziness' of classics back east which speaks of a desire to simply sail the boat. I think her lines are nicer..
