Re: Interesting Sailboats

somebody know the market price of a new "Redline 41" from C&C. Found this boat very insteresting, of course from the point of view of a rookie!. Have to say that the model from the sixties is much more nicer to my eyes.
Redline 41 - C&C Yachts
The new one

And the old

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Donjuan:
I used to race on one of the '60's Redlines. Nice boat and very good looking.

No doubt the Mills design will be a very good boat. It's also pretty nice looking.
Don't know the price. Probably ten times what you would have paid new in the 60's.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Everything is.

That old Redline is gorgeous. It's interesting how C&C boats have always been instantly recognizable as such, even though they kept changing - sort of like Mercedes Benz's.

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

Jon:
I agree. C&C had a run of so many boats with any ugly ones. There were a couple of their cruising models I wasn't wild about but their racer/cruisers to my eye set the bar for styling. I still consider the old C&C 39 one of the best looking decks ever designed. I studied that deck.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Denizens of the interesting sailboats thread, might I trouble you for a moment for any information or opinions you may have on the below boat, A Montercarlo 43 designed by Angelo Lavrano/Fred Scholtz and built in South Africa in the 90's.



Yours truly is looking at one, but they are not that common a find, especially in this part of the world. Information is scarce to come by. We are basically after a 40 something, serious cruiser, capable of better than average performance in terms of making good passage times. It would appear to be a contender.

Yes, the SV Icon that smashed the Oregon Offshore Race record by almost FIVE hours is one of Bob's designs. They beat Rage's record that had stood since 2000.
