Re: Interesting Sailboats

That boat has a beautifully fair hull - look at the reflections.

Too bad the same quality wasn't put into the design of the cabin top and the positioning of the ports.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Yeh I'm starting to thing it could be a home built, the closest I find might be a highly altered 1965 Bristol 27?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Here's another pic. I think it's too high quality fibreglass work for home built built like a tank

Yes that rudder has be altered cut at the top and the sail drive the owner believes is not original either, that's obvious, just another thing that makes this boat so difficult to identify, I'm baffled.

4ème Challenge de Printemps 2014 : inscrits et classements (IRC 2)
Sunfast 3600 took the overall win, and looked pretty consistent - 1st and 2nd places, with the throwout being a 3rd in the final race. That 11th place and the three 4ths didn't help the A35's cause. However, it does say a lot about the people sailing the A35 that they're getting it dialed in pretty quickly. More quickly, it would appear, than JPK. And the MAT 1010 is truly a disappointment, particularly as this is exactly the kind of racing that boat was designed to excel in. Wonder what's going on with them.

We deal in lead, friend.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I happened across this boat when I recently visited the yard in Delaware where my boat is stored this winter. I kept walking by it and it definitely caught my eye even though my taste doesn't usually run to anything quite this modern looking, so I asked the marina owner about it. He said it was a custom build, designed with a kevlar sandwich hull designed to not be holed even if sailed into a reef at 6 knots. Who knows if it can actually do that but apparently it's a very ruggedly built hull and I found the listing on yachtworld to look at the pictures. I just bought a Tayana 47 and am happy with that so am not in the market for a boat, but if I was looking for a 50'-55' boat for long distance cruising, I'd want to take a really good look at this one. It's different, but I think interesting.

I tried to post a link but don't have enough posts to be allowed to do that yet so if you go on Yachtworld and look up an Atlantis 56' sloop in Delaware I'm sure you'll find it OK. What are your impressions?

That's a nice looking boat. But there are lots of nice looking boats. You own one that was designed by a good designer ( ahem). I hope you are enjoying your boat. Don't let fashion and fads distract you. The sea doesn't recognize fashion.

Absolutely great designer! As you know, I loved my Nordic 44 when I had that and am looking forward to getting our Tayana back in the water about 6 weeks from now once my wife finishes school. It's been a long winter.

This Atlantis boat isn't quite my thing but I just thought it was very interesting and looked like a good value for someone searching for that sort of boat. I'd never ever hard of gimballed helmsmans seats before but they might be pretty nice!

I am confused. When I looked it up, there was a whole other ranking. The same Archie still has on its site with a dominant win for the A35: CHAMPIONNAT DE PRINTEMPS LA TRINITE SUR MER ( suite)
