When my wife found it on line I did not like it either, but it grows on you. The previous owner has what he calls a flopper stopped to keep her from rocking to much. He also install a bow thruster to make docking easier. Since we will be living on her the pilot house adds some space. We had to have the pilot house have to be cut off to meet height requirements for shipping and I agree she looks much better without it.

SC is pretty mild climate wise isn't it ?

In Sydney (Aus not Canada) we have a pretty mild climate, can get tropical hot in summer but cold in winter. Definitely not below freezing though. Minimum in winter probably around 10įC, not much less. If I were to own something like the Cal in mild temps I'd go for canvas on top so that you can if you wish open her up.

I don't think that there were any Elans at the last couple of Annapolis boatshows. And I don't think Wauquiez has plans to bring the Opium 39 to the US, either.

You europeans get all the good stuff.........

This is really not expensive. I wonder about how much loss in value one should expect. Do you think a boat which is more mainstream, e.g. a First would loose less? How you you loose in the first 3 years and how much later on?

Finn Flyer 42 movie

Hey Guys let me show you the prettiest and sexiest boat on the Dusseldorf Boat show (just arrived from there): The Finnflyer 42

(put the video in HF)


















The builder says about the boat :

This yacht is designed to deliver superior sailing performance, without sacrificing any of the safety and comfort needed for cruising. With a luxurious and light composite interior covered with a thin wooden veneer the yacht works perfectly for fast cruising and onboard living for the family. The equipment and fittings on deck are made for fun and safe sailing. The light and stiff yacht offers easy handling and very fast sailing.

Finn Flyer 42 | FinnFlyer

Yes I know, a lot of you guys are saying : Bullsh**t! Another racing yacht pretending to be a cruising boat .Yes, my wife thinks about the same thing about the boats that I really like...except that after carefully examining this one (Storage spaces, freezer capacity, separated bath cabin, comfort) she said that this was a nice one and ask me to buy it

I had to explain her that the boat that we both liked (by different reasons) was way out of our budget. Sad

Regards

Paulo

Those companionway steps are not designed for heeling, guess she is just a dock queen.

Well, there I was giving them the BOtD that it was for promotional demos for the show....

Just back ourselves from a last minute dash to Seattle for the show there.. Good Jeanneau representation, other than the Ikea-ish finish below I liked the new SO39 in person.

Beneteau had a 34 on display - not a First series but a pretty nice boat, great profile without the rounded house and 'cat's eye' ports of her bigger sisters. One picky thing.. the hull is obviously molded in two halves - there was a prominently visible seam stem to stern down the centerline where the joined halves were not fully aligned or nicely faired. My other 'Bene bitch' is they are making squared-off doorways and passages below, adding to the condo look.

A couple of IPs there.... talk about overpriced (apologies, Paulo, for even mentioning them in this thread! )

A Tartan 43 - very nice indeed but close to a half a mil....

Nicest new boat there for me was the Norstar 40 - a reworked resurrection of the Perry designed Nordic 40 - US built; they also make a 44.

This is a huge show, but as usual sailboats were very under-represented.

errrrr ummmmm..... uh Paulo........

Hope you had a typo, or equal, or we did not know the wife was a "HE"! well any who,,,,, could not resist.

Glad to know that boat was a hit with the missus, too bad it is too expensive. My wife would be happy with any of the 36-40' Jeanneaus. Still have not gotten aboard the SO409.....maybe next week at the dealer lot.
