Another old steeler.

This from I think the first edition of the Proper Yacht. From memory posted in an Anarchy thread on double enders. I have no idea if she still lives.

Aren't there another couple of examples or has the GFC taken them down ? i remember when I was doing the YachtWorld circuit before we bought our girl that I spent some considerable time drooling over a couple of Euro boats that were of that semi classic style but very modern underwater.

I'll try and find them Beautiful boats, either steel or aluminium.


edit .... Bestewind was one of them .... the other boat in this pic is a Van de Stadt built by the same yard.





and this is the other ..... very similar to the previous boat Paulo posted or is it the same ? Not sure.




edit ... she's a Puffin 42
Yes, very nice boats, great steel and aluminium designers (with a long tradition) and some of the best metal and steel shipyards.

Also Dutch, I like this one it can be made in aluminium or steel but the one that is being built is in steel. I like the simplicity, the modern underbody and the classical looks:



Regards

Paulo

"Cruising"? Never heard of it.

The boys and I will be doing a 150 mile off-shore delivery this weekend on a sailboat. But we'll be sailing.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Great looking boats Paulo. I wish I could get a design commission like that.

Here is a nice alu boat I did with a Dutch builder.

I think you could make my pics look better. This boat is currently owned by a German family who is cuising full time. They love the boat.

Yes I can but you have to learn how to do it

Go here (or to a similar site):

Photobucket.com

Open an account (free), post there the photos and then post the link on the thread. You will get big photos.







Very nice boat. Only the keel does not make my style. But the design looks sharp. How many years has that design?

That was the type of boat that more than 10 years ago I thought I want. In fact I have modified an existent design and contacted the boat designer to see if it could be made. That's before the crisis and I had more money Anyway I quickly discover that was not really the boat I wanted and on the same type of boat (aluminium passage maker) I went for another design.

Regards

Paulo

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Paulo:
On a blue water cruiser like this the boat has to be able to be set on it's keel at haul out. It is a low aspect ratio keel buit when you haul it out it cacn rest on the keel.

Plus,,,when you have restricted draft you need an effective low aspect ratio fin. I think I have that here.
