I actually like some english cars, used to have an 71 MG Miget, that was a fun car. Parents have a 95 Landrover they have owned since new, have 170k of trouble free miles on the car, never garaged and still looks new.

Trouble I have with Ferro boats is that they all seem big and built more to live aboard than actually sail. A friends father used to live aboard a 50' ferro boat in Annapolis on the south river (marina next to South River bridge). The father motored that boat to the marina when new and never moved it in more than 30 years- the boat might even be sitting there now. In fact he never owned sails for the boat.

Does the subject boat have sails- none shown in the picture?
