You may have to change the title of this thread to:

Sailboat PORN!

absolutely stunning boats! Balta's Lefant Perdu really gets me going too, and has moved to my personal No. 1 mono.
Boat Porn Eh!!! It seems you like that

That's difficult to find better quality Boat Porn than what is provided by Patrick Balta. Look at these designs:
















He has even a 40class design, a narrow boat off course

Nemier, I find funny that you be interested in multihulls...and in the opposite kind of sailboats, very narrow deep bulbed boats. Extremes do touch sometimes

Some movies of Balta's boats...bad quality but beautiful boats that sail well:

YouTube - ‪MOV009‬‏

YouTube - ‪ADELE le bateau de Alain Maupas2‬‏

YouTube - ‪Maximus premiers essais‬‏

YouTube - ‪maximus 4.AVI‬‏

YouTube - ‪tangara.avi‬‏
