Re: Interesting Sailboats

No G, I did not saw that one I mean the new drawings and I thought that it was really a shame that Maxi yachts ended just when it was doing an innovative and great boat, one of those that are not designed primarily to have very good results according to a given handicap but just to sail faster and have fun while cruising or racing.

I am really happy because the project was reborn and the drawings are even nicer. who is going to make the boat?

Regards

Paulo

Open 7.5

And from the Spy Ouest a very nice movie from the Open 7.5 race. This guys are good




The Open 7.5 is a kind of miniature Open60, designed by....yes you have guessed, Finot/conq. Great fun and speed by not much money.

Paulo - I love this thread, but all the ginormous HD videos cause it to take forever to load and scroll.

I loved this boat since the first time that I read about! I have plans to build a RG-65 radio controlled scow to test the concept.

If I win the Lottery I will ask some designer like Finot to build a scow like the Pogo 12.50 but with the scow bow.

Hi PMCunha and welcome to the thread.

I have an opinion about the Jeanneau 36I and it is about the same as these guys:

I come from a big yachtie family and they all insist that I should be looking at nothing else but long keel, heavy displacement boats like Hallberg Rassys, Malos, Vancouvers and Island Packets - that sort of thing. The trouble is, these boats are 2-3 times the cost of a mass production boat. While I can see the advantages of extra tankage, huge stability and the ability to hunker down at sea in a Force 11, I just can't justify in my head the extra cost of buying this peace of mind for the sailing I plan to do. In truth I probably couldn't afford it anyway.

I've just come back from two weeks sailing a Jeanneau 36i and she was a sweet as a nut in winds upto 28 kt and sea states of 4-5. So I'm sure she could handle the occasional big blow. She was fantastically gentle and well mannered. No matter what combination of sail we put up, she never seemed to show us excessive lee or weather helm. Build quality looked good - for the price - and everything worked OK. I've also sailed Bavarias, Beneteaus, Westerlys and Vancouvers and none felt as good as this one. ...

I think you'll find the "fit and finish" and attention to detail better on the Jeanneau. The 36i has a nice head with stall shower. Due to modular construction, the galley on the 36i is the same as the 39i.

Not sure about parts sourcing on the Hunter, but the Jeanneau is a Euro boat--Swedish bilge pump, Italian hoses, great British (Lewmar) hatches, etc. It's all good gear, but as things need replacing (just the bilge pumps so far) I'm getting US-made equivalents. The engine is Yanmar and it's bulletproof. All the deck hardware is Harken (US) and well thought out. I single hand with no problem. The Jeanneau is more of a traditional rig with a 130% genoa, so you'll probably fly a bigger asym spinnaker than the Hunter will hoist. I use an ATN sock which makes flying the asym easier.

Bottom line: Both are good boats that will work for you. Sail them both with your wife (and maybe even daughers) along and see what feels best.

P.S.---If you're looking at new boat and have the resources, I highly recommend you look at the Jeanneau 36i Performance. Deeper keel, taller rig, faster boat.
But they have an advantage ovr me and that is that they have sailed the boat and I have not

I also agree with CJMojo in what regards the 36i performance that seems a lot more appealing to me.



The boat is very elegant and the Marc Lombard design is still very modern, already with a high profile bulbed keel and the beam brought back to a large transom.

:: :: JEANNEAU :: ::

http://www.jeanneauaustralia.com/fil...e_Yachting.pdf



But if the boat you are considering is this one at this price:

JEANNEAU Sun Odyssey 36i , Diesel, 117.500

I would say that you should have a look at these Hanse 40 in Italy:

Hanse 40 yachts - Vendita, barche Hanse 40 usate, nuove e in charter

The jeanneau is a great boat, one of the best among 36ft but will not be a match for an Hanse 40, not in seaworthiness, not in speed and most of all, not in storage space that is one of the few things where the Jeanneau 36i is not very good. Probably the Jeanneau would have a nicer interior for most (me included) but with some luck you can find an epoxy Hanse and that would more than compensate a not so cozy interior even if one very functional and a lot bigger.

Off course if you can bring that price really down, that is another story

Abc

Thanks Smack.

I would be interested in having more feedback about that. I have no problem to scroll the thread and to see the videos on that size, not even on my laptop that has already some years and is not fast. But we have fast internet in Portugal. I have no idea of the average speed among all sailnet users. I know that in Italy is SLOW.

Regarding the videos, I love HD and sharp images and the ones that have problems supporting that quality just have to click on the video and see it on Vimeo or Youtube and there they can change the quality for low resolution.

Anyway if you are not the exception but the rule I can change the settings.
How about give me some feedback about this guys?

Regards

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo,

Had not seen the X33 until a bit ago on another forum, had not looked in here for a day or week or so!

Looks like a nice boat if I could afford it etc.

Problem not really with HD and scrolling down, but embedded video size. You set it to be iframe width="1280" height="720" and it is fine on your 20" screen, you see it in full. On my older laptop I see like 75% of it and I need to zoom out or scroll horizontally. Zooming out makes text very small/unreadable and scroll horizontally is a bit annoying. So then you embedding video just set a smaller iframe width="853" height="480". Thanks.
