Designed and built his dream boat

While most of us choose the easy road and pick new boats right off the standard rack, Swedish Jesper Weissglas took the road less traveled and designed and built a boat for the big oceans. He created Journeyman.

Wow - talk about an accomplishment. That guy knew exactly what he wanted / needed, designed exactly that and then did a very nice job of building it. And it didn't take him the majority of his life. That is one impressive fellow.

Any businessmen here who wouldn't hire him, sight unseen?

But even built and designed by him I am quite sure that boat costed a lot of money. There are some French aluminum builders that have begun like that. A circumnavigation, one boat made applying the knowledge and lot's of sailors interested

Hmm for an ocean cruiser the wheel[s] are in the wrong place IMHO.

In a situation where you have to helm I don't want to be there.

Mr Amel got it right.

I wish him the best, but that stern, and helm stations scare the bejesus out of me. One bad move, and you're being drug, or lost out the stern.........i2f

Just curious, but have you guys ever sailed a boat with an open transom? One could easily rig netting across the opening and still get the benefit of not having the cockpit fill with water. Honestly, the boat, including the stern, look much like a nice variation of a Dashew design with a cockpit (not the hull form) heavily influenced by the latest short handed racing designs.

For comparison, here's an interesting open cockpit of a well known boat with a much better protected helm:

I wouldn't worry much about falling off either boat, but if it were cold at all, I'd rather drive Pelagic.

I'm sure he put a lot of thought into it and should be commended. Purely on an esthetic basis, I don't like it. Ugly and all that shiny interior doesn't do it for me.

She seems to be pretty high in the water, even if not with normal loads on board. I think the keel bulb could be a problem if (when) he hits something.

Definitely looks a bit like the Dashew designs, which I like. While the wheel does look a bit exposed, you would be under autopilot offshore anyway.

Looks like a 60' solar power collecting hospital bathroom.
