Real Mink. Thanks for the compliments. It really is a sailing boat, and it sails very very well. Maybe its the weight!?!?!

Cool. You guys do keep her in top shape.

Now on Caleb's "attitude" comment - c'mon it's not like the decor is early Marlborough Man...or John Wayne Renaissance. He was actually working very delicately to defuse untoward comments from insensitive boneheads like me.

You should thank him.

I bit over the top for my taste, but its a hell of a lot nicer looking than most interiors I see. I bet they could make some bucks staging boats for sale

That looks a lot like something you'd see on some Mega Yacht, not a working sailboat. I can appreciate the effort. While I wouldn't care for all of the TV's, nor the energy budget required to run them, it is sweet. Nice job oceanaire

Many thanks for all the kind workds. As to energy consumption, here goes: 17 batteries, 18kw Northern Lights diesel. We anchor most of the way from NYC to points south. We are conservative underway. Generator runs every two days for about 3 hours. TV's are all 12V, except main salon. Serious cruising stuff: 35 gph watermaker, running backstays, full electronics, sat phone, 300 gals fuel 300 gals water, no moving parts toilets (headhunters use a 12v pump to do the dirty work), two large propane tanks in dedicated locker, dual refrigerator/freezer system (engine and electric) etc, etc. Most important: lots of storage, including a dedicated space for 180 bottles of wine and spirits.

The main sail furler attached to the boom is interesting. It's main sail furling, just not in mast.

Thanks for posting CD.

I don't think I can afford it so my view is not relevant.

The interior is not for me, it is too homey and too much decoration for my taste. I like the salon looks like a sail boat, not to remind my of the home or hotel room. Too much junk there that I am not sure what to do with it when I hit the open sea.

Hey, if you have the money, spend it however you want. It is a free world after all.

That is just the opposite of what I want from a sailboat. Like Charlie said, that interior would be more fit on a luxury motorboat.

For me a sailboat should be about simple and light things, like the wind and the sea and a perfect setting for a simple and enjoyable live. I don't even want a TV on my boat, just a good stereo hi-fi to enjoy music.

But I guess that there are a lot of different sailors....but I confess that I had never saw anything like that interior on a sailboat, not even on much bigger and very expensive yachts.

Regards

Paulo
