Yachtingworld tested recently one of the ugliest boats around:



I confess that I don't understand this boat. Ok, nothing wrong with Trawlers, but to put sails in one, I mean not one that is old styled and whose lines come from the time were fishing boats had sails, but a modern looking one with sails?

If someone has over a million dollars to give for a trawler why the well he wants sails? That thing will not give any pleasure to sail and will go fast motoring. I confess I don't get it.

If someone has over a million to give for a motorsailer at least he can get a nice one and I don't know of a nicer one than this one, a Bob Perry design. I think the boat has not been made yet and that is just a shame. A beauty like that should come to existance
