The boat of your dreams...

OK, please post here the sailboat you would like to have, within reasonable spending, and for the sailing you do. (not that you dream to do).

I mean the possible dream boat, the one you could buy, if you just received some extra money....

Please refrain from posting things like 150 foot boats and mega yachts and boats that are really far from a feasble dream for a normal person....no Mari Cha's or Falcons or anything like that....refrain from "this here 90 foot 5 million sloop....bla bla bla and go live in the caribbean...that's off topic).

If you post a photo of Mari Cha, you better prove you race all year round and around the world...

Just down to the Earth dream...a boat to sail how you sail now. If you have the dream boat already...go lie somewhere else.

OK, here is mine. This is the boat I would like to have, for the sailing I do, and where I go with my boat.

Its the Swan 45. LINK





YOU NEED TO POST PHOTO OR LINK OR BOTH. ONE BOAT ONLY SPECIFY BRAND AND MODEL

dream boat

We are closing in on our planned 4 yr circumnavigation and bought a late model Moody 46 and love it. If however had a dream boat and the $$ to buy it, it would be a new Swan 53

By the way, Moody, excellent boat!

MacGregor or Giulietta

I am currently landlocked, with the lakes around me drying up every day (really sad to see). Therefore, I currently do no sailing. But, if I had the money, a nice MacGregor 26M or a custom Portuguese racing boat would be nice (you won't need it after you get your Swan)!

In all honesty, a Hinckley Bermuda 40.



Sure it's a little cramped for a 40-footer, but she has all the space I'd ever really need, and she's one of the prettiest boats ever produced.

Life is too short to sail ugly boats.

Cam's boat .............

It might be more than I need right now; but it'd never be less than what I need.

It's even an achievable dream, with a little financial luck ; though the timing is about 10 years off
