Lightbulb Review – BMW 18

If BMW made a 16’- 20’ sport sailboat, what would it be? (They say that a 3 Series BMW is a four-seat passenger vehicle, not a race car – although it performs and handles like one.)

I am looking for a used “1990’s BMW 325” sailboat. (New ones cost too much.) A boat that will carry four people, that I can drive to work (day-sail), and can also take to the races on weekends. Do you know of any such boats?

A Thistle may fall into that category but they are of 1950’s vintage. Is there a boat about 40 years newer that can day-sail and also perform like a Thistle on the weekends? If so, what is it? I have not yet been able to find one. A VX One is a candidate but is too new/expensive.

I hope you can you think of some others and will let me know.

J24. 80s vintage and a little over 20' but would fit otherwise.

Viper 640. Setting aside your 1990's and size criteria the J/70 sounds like it fits the bill to a tee.

Re: Review – BMW 18

Sounds like a S/A question, far be it from me to recommend another site.

Re: Ultimate 18' Sailing Machine

I love the vintage Thistle that is well kept. I just yatwurld one up in TN. She's 5k but pretty.
Something different, just an idea...- you could look at a hobie 18,20,21,etc., . Good day sailing if you can manage the access to water/landing/the beach is your dock. Great performers. I recommend boat w/wings, very comfy, better hiking.
