I find the concept of a classic yacht with modern performance intriguing, but perhaps a risky and expensive path for someone with limited knowledge.

Thanks. There are on the market some beautiful modern classic boats. Some years ago I had a real interest on this one. It turned out to be a bit more expensive than what I could afford. Isn't it a beautiful boat?







Regards

Paulo

Moody 41, nice boat. They had one at the Annapolis Show this year. The Hanse affiliation was very evident next to the Hanse boats. Looks like all the same materials were used, from wood stock to stanchions. The one at the show was around $350000 if I remember correctly with quite a list of options.

Cobra 41

Interesting boat. Light, with a good B/D, nice but i cannot say I understand the design of the transom, I mean the boat is designed to sail sail only with very limited angles of heel? I would understand that if it was a slow cruiser but it seems to be a performance boat and the weight and sail area confirm that. Take a look:




Here the boat is sailing already out of its lines.





I Know by reputation the NA and it is a good one. I would love to know the reason for this design of transom on this boat.

Regards

Paulo

Right, it is a Bill Dixon design but the hull looks very much the hull of the old Hanse 40.



It is a pity that the B/D is on the low side (28%), smaller than on the new Hanse 415. The boat has some resemblance in its classicism with the Xc 42 and a good interior....but the Xc42 has 44% of B/D. Not as good (not even closer) as the Xc42 as an offshore cruiser but a very interesting boat for the ones that make mostly coastal cruising...and that's the vast majority.

Regards

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo, hi - great thread ! The Moody 41 has probably deserved to sell more hulls than it has; but the show / demo boats all have the optional high gloss timber interiors and oval portlights which must put off a few people.

The other thing which afflicts most twin wheeled yachts under 13 metres is that you can't lie down on the cockpit seats because they terminate at the aft end with a solid moulding for the steering pedastal. At least with a single wheel you can stretch out - even if your legs hang slightly over the end. This is an important feature for me - especially in warmer climates where on-deck sleeping is a happy option ! I tested the Moody 41 for this at the Southampton Boat Show and it failed miserably, which is a backward step on a yacht this size.

Thoughts ?



Cheers, Robert
