Re: Interesting Sailboats

Thanks Jaramaz:
I have been forwarding these posts to my friend.
He's on his way to San Francisco next week to see what he can find down there. He and his wife have not fallen in love with anything they have seen yet.

I appreciate the back up on this as does my friend Doug.

The background and reputation is solid, if I recall Dephia also won an award at Chicago Strictly Sail. These are well build modern boats, in my opinion.
I agree with that. Regarding the 40 they have been changing the interior but that hull is old and it is already a bit outdated. The boat has a good B/D ratio for the type of keel and is considered a safe boat.

As you properly know one circumnavigated recently on a non stop attempt. It made the circumnavigation but not really non stop because it hit a submerged object and had to stop to repair the rudder. Otherwise the boat did well.

Sail-World.com : Against the odds: Chichocki completes circumnavigation

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.

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.

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.
