Ulf, you mention Cigale, and I must confess to an irrational love of this boat. I’ve been aboard the 14 and 16 and could not get the aft saloon out of my head. Glass on three sides with those large windows facing aft and a positively enormous roundtable give associations to the pirate vessels of old – you know the ornamental overhangs aft where a Captain Morgan gathered his scoundrels and counted silver treasures?...
There is not nothing irrational about that
. I have saw the first Cigale 16 in Paris boat show....and it was just perfect. As you said, contrary of most big production boats, that look like floating condos, that one mean business all the way... meaning passage in comfort, cruising in comfort and living in comfort. A true sailing/living/dream machine.Good taste dreams are not irrational
