I'm looking for more tradinional hull shape like the contessa26, alberg30,douglas32. I don't know what but something strange attracts me to that kind of boats. I guess I really like their under water lines.

Sure those light and super fast boat looks like a blast to sail but my thing is more cruising, and for cruising I would be better off with a sailboat with a nice full keel.

Sorry if this question as all ready been asked before, I don't really feel like reading all of the 70 pages...
Yes, it was asked before and the answer was:

I can only remember an European brand that had proposed a new line of full keel cruisers. That was four years ago? and I never heard of them again. I don't know if they managed to make any boat, but I am quite sure they are out of business. They were nice looking boats, but heavy, slow and expensive. I Doubt that there is a market for that kind of boats.

There are some builders that still make old designs with a full keel, among them the 27 ft Vancouver (now 28ft). The bigger Vancouvers have already some sort of mix between a full keel and a Fin.

Vancouver 28

But the one I really like (I want one of those when I am really old ) is the Marieholm 33. It is still made and it is an incredible beautiful boat. I have been inside of one and I can tell you that has one wonderful interior, really cozy. One of the nicest I Have ever seen.

That's a boat that would make any sailor proud.

Take a look at the Video : M33 class

Marieholm | Zeiboot Friesland, motorboot Friesland, zeiljacht Friesland, motorjacht Friesland


And I would add that today a full keel on a new design would be an anachronism. Sure you can have more traditional cruisers, even classical ones and there are several of them in the market, but all with modern bulbed keels.

If you look at the thread you will find several cruisers that fit that criteria: the Morris, the Faurby and the Nordborg, all beautiful and all with a modern keel.

The only boats that are still made with full keel are old designs that have some very reduced (almost custom) production. There are not new designs with a full keel and by a good reason, they don't offer any advantage and have many disadvantages.

The Faurby has the 33, a lovely boat:
FAURBY 330

But I guess you would like more the Nordborg 900, or the 32
Nordborg Baadebyggeri A/S - Die Yacht Nordborg 900 -

Halberg Rassy has a nice 31ft:
Hallberg-Rassy, Sweden

The real problem is that these kind of boats are expensive to made and for the price of one of these you can buy a 36ft (or bigger) from any of the big mass production boat companies. For a similar seaworthiness you will have a lot more space and more speed.

That's the real reason why you don't find many nice seaworthy small cruisers. Sailors prefer to spend their money in a bigger boat.

(take a look at pages 41, 42 and 43)

Paulo

Tofinou 12

Since we are talking about Classic boats I would like to show a favorite of mine: The Tofinou. They are all beautiful but the new one is the 12 (40ft) and that's the one I will post.

This boat is for the ones that love to sail and want a fast boat and a beautiful boat that will never grew old. Forever beautiful, its a hard thing to get

This one will suit the lovers of beauty and fast sailing that want a boat for weekends or short holidays, a week or so. After all this is the program of a lot of sailors.

Take a look at pure beauty, at least for the eyes of a sailor
















Latitude 46

Regards

Paulo

For what she is meant for that is one lovely boat. Old Phillipe S must be mellowing in his old age. Paulo, do you remember that thing he designed for Beneteau in the late seventies or early eighties ?

For my taste I would call her perfect. Would it be wrong to describe her as a very handsome boat?

Have an idea. It was a strange thing But I have a big respect for the guy. Love lots of its designs and he lives well, with good taste. Do you know that he lives on Formentera and that his normal vehicle for going shopping or elsewhere is a hobie cat?

He designed one that seems that is going to be produced by hobie Europa. I am not sure if I like the functional aspect, but its certainly different. I am very curious to see one and reserve my opinion till that moment

Paulo,
We worked with a Spanish furniture maker in the late eighties who was the first furniture maker to use Stark designs. I've always liked his designs though some of them would be very hard to actually live with. As you say, he seems to live well with good taste which is somewhat unusual these days.
I knew that PS had a house in Barcelona but not Formentera. What a lovely island. Probably getting over developed now but when I went there a decade ago it was wonderful. Spanish style, elegent, fabulous bars and restaurants but still with a dash of counter culture.
Cheers
Andrew

ps - I do like the look of that Hobie.

That E210 is a kewl looking boat for a trailer sailor! Looks like the motor goes thru the hull and belo ala a saildrive style, but pulls up with a flush bottom somehow? way kewl if it does that.

Hoping to get onboard a J409 at the Seattle show this week. If not, I'll get by the dealer to take a peak. It will be interesting to see the new design look and feel vs the older more recent and as far back as 25 yrs like my Arcadia.

Had a good weekend skiing, ala on snow skiing vs on liquid water!

I have to agree that E210 looks fantastic and a obvious competitor for the Benny 21.7.
Is the E210 trailerable?

I know in Oz the Benny with tlr is about $120K however you can buy used for $80K.
Wonder what the E210 comes in at.

We have a boat show in Melbourne early Feb and the Elan dealer is based at our yacht Club so I might just ask the question.

The problem with this thread is all of the great boats on the market.
I am committed to buying a boat and now I am trying to sort out which one.
I'm not sure this thread contributes or confuses!
