Nimble 32 Yawl crossing the big pond??

howdy all,
been looking at Nimble's, kinda cool looking boats but never seen one up close or sailed one. The 32 yawl caught my eye and i wonder if it is blue water capable, its the right size and could go up the french canals with style, what do yall think???

Not sure.

You might ask the designer (Ted Brewer, I think?) what he thinks about that idea. Maybe we'll hear from some owners, too.

One thing that occurs to me is that even if you decide not to sail it across, it could be shipped over for a modest fee. I do agree that it would make a nice boat for the canals, assuming you plan to do some sailing elsewhere too.

If you only plan to do the canals, you might consider a true canal boat.

i told ted brewer that i told my daughter (62) i would like to cross the atlantic again in 2 1/2 yrs when i am 90. she said she would like to help me. on my own boat this time , a nimble 30 express. ted said the boat can do it, but i would be better off with 3 people. this is a well built vessel & he said it should pop up fairly quickly from a 90 degree knock down.

I can see that.

I'd love to do those canals some day, too. What a wonderful way to visit France!

My sailing mentor took his ocean-going 38-foot sailboat through from the English Channel to the Med, with its 6'6" draft. He spent an entire summer doing it, and had a wonderful trip. So even some of the "boats more capable of making the crossing" might work out too.

That's not to say you couldn't do it in the Nimble. If you haven't spoken with Ted Brewer about it, you can reach him via his website: Ted Brewer Yacht Design
