2011 Sun Odyssey 409
European Yacht of the Year 2011:
Damn, this is real tempting for $199k with reversible electric winches and solar panels standard. It is a real bargain. The modern design and manufacture process is really outdone the old boat. It appears to be much more ergonomic for us. I sailed and saw enough old boats, they may have a good line and sea comfort, but the day-to-day and minute to minute ergonomic sucks.
Has anyone seen this boat up close? Just wonder if their interior can hold up for 20 to 30 years of so? Added bonus, this boat will be made in U.S.
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
