The Shearwater is definitely a fine looking boat. In newer desings I also like the Gozzard's with their "clipper" bows. But, back to my favorites which seem to be liked by many on this thread...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned any of the designs by Carl Alberg. I've always loved the Challenger 38, yawl of course.

I like the Gozzard's clipper bow and details too. I also like the below-decks arrangement. Very practical, especially for the cruising couple.

As for Mr. Alberg, I agree. No one designed better looking boats than ol' Carl. I listed the Triton as one of my all-time favorite looking boats in my initial post on this thread.

William...only when the ocean is like a lake! The boat is made for lakes and bays and day sailing in the ocean when conditions are not too rough. You should have a lot of fun on her and learn a lot!! Good luck & welcome aboard.

While perhaps not the prettiest boat ever, this :

is another example of the "looks classic, goes fast" school of thought.

An ad in Novembers "Yachting Monthly" caught my eye - shows a fin/bulb keel sleek underbody and very classy lines. This is a french builder (Sorry, G)

Faster,

We have one here the 9,5m .. Blue hull, CF rigging. It's a piece of crap, looks good for the first month only, then tarnishes, the wood goes funny and the varnish flakes.

Sails OK but not that fast.

Admit it Giu, you just don't like the boat because it's French.

Biases aside, G, that's interesting.

We have a Spirit 42 in our area, and it certainly has the beautifully classic lines and the racy underbody. However in a race last year it really didn't seem to shine. While it may have been the hand on the tiller, all the same it didn't appear to have great speed - a shame at 250,000 British Pounds list price.

But at least you (and everyone else) can admire the boat on a mooring.

Faster,

We don't really admire it.... first, its French, so by the time we open our eyes we already passed it!! second, its on the other end of our marina, were we rarely go. Believe me sails good but not fast.
