Re: Interesting Sailboats

Wow... a perfect boat for the PNW.

Years ago Cooper yachts managed to produce some fairly attractive PH cruisers.. but this one really ticks all the boxes.

Love the good sails, storage ideas, ventilated berth platforms, raised settee and esp the overall 'non Ikea' fit and finish. (ironic since it's a Scandinavian boat!) Beautiful. Not sleek, no 36foot DS can really be, but very nicely done with a good cockpit and what looks like reasonable sightlines over the house. It also makes sense that you needn't spend space on an inside steering station with today's remote APs..

Send me one (along with a winning lottery ticket!)

EDIT.. Agree with hannah about the teak... is that an option?
