Well there are definitely fewer pointed shoe boxes with IKEA interiors but there is still interesting stuff going on.

Paulo has his blog if you miss them.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

" pointed shoe boxes with IKEA interiors"

Do you mind if I use that in a review Jon?

You are certainly right about that. This thread is now aligned with the general view of this forum regarding sailboats. No more Ikea boats, only good old boats, with some new Bob ones designed on the same spirit: Good old American style boats, as Bob likes to call them.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

If every one got past their hissy fits can someone ( even Paulo ) post new sailboats. Used to come and lurk. Enjoyed it.
Think they make boats in nz and oz. know nothing about them. That would be a good start. No old world new world nonsense.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I like Classic American styled boats. That's my style. I am not Euro in any way. Never will be and happy for that. I leave designing those boats for the people who enjoy that style. I certainly see no reason other than juvenile pettiness to make personal attacks out of the differences. There is room for all styles of boats. I like differences. I enjoy boats of all styles myself as an observer. But I stick to what I do best. I think some of the modern European designs are very beautiful.

Out:
I don't think you will find any new production models coming out of Australia or NZ. But the NZ'ers do produce some fabulous custom boats. There are some new Oz models being produced in China. They are pretty race oriented though.

Jon:
You come down. I'll buy a bottle of Dalwhinnie. That's a promise.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I don't think the difference is so much Euro/North American as it is Radical/Conservative.

Some of the Scandinavian boats are pretty conservative - I can't see Hallberg Rassy's being classified as "Euro" in the sense of the term in this thread. I also suspect that the majority of non-racing North American sailors would love to own one but simply can't afford it.

It's kind of ironic that, for the most part, the radical design changes are coming from the "Old World" and the conservative attitudes are found in the "New World".

Re: Interesting Sailboats

After a tremedous amount of deep thinking I think it's more a capitalism/ socialism kind of thing.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Well not sure what to think about all of this. Hate North America as much as some like.
Despite that they can't find popular blogs about anything somewhere else, and guess they are back here.
On the other hand North America is big Island as looked on globe in this beautiful world of ours. Fighting didn't get as very far. So what is idea fighting about our pleasure craft?
