How many have you seen? Every one I've seen (I guess about four or so) have looked from medium-worn to semi-destroyed in terms of varnish and trim. Maybe they were nice down below, but they all looked pretty beat up on deck and in their gear. This could be because of the generally conservative nature of their owners, favouring ratty ratlines made of seized manila, corroded bronze manual windlasses, and Dacron sails with more patches than Cher's backside.
