New Bombay Trading Company Explorer 44 the deep keel version.

I have a drop keel Explorer 44 and she suits me just fine, big open saloon comfortable bed and a BIG shower stall. Shower with a friend - no problem - two friends are even possible.

Came up from Trinidad to Grenada last week with new bottom paint, 8s 9s and the odd 10. Fast is good.

As long as were talking vintage dream boats and many have mentioned pullman berths, I'll take a Hans Christian 33t, please.

Re: What's your dream boat?


The schooner Alcyone is a downsized (65')Gloucester fishing schooner NW Windjammers - Alcyone
But rather than standing on the dock lusting after a 65' schooner I can kick back in the hammock on my own 30' cutter.She may not be my dream boat, but she is allowing me to live my dream.


My definition of the perfect boat is a balance of an individuals priorities

Outbound 46 ... I think. Never been on one but she sure looks nice from the dock.

Re: What's your dream boat?

Actually to fit within the parameters of the original question, I saw a beautiful old wooden schooner, 45' on deck (smallest practical size for a schooner) nice graceful lines, low cabin with esthetically very pleasing aft cabin (not center cockpit, 2/3 maybe). Rig was a jib headed main, foresail was gaff, but could fly a staysail and topmast staysail (between foremast and mainmast) really big bowsprit with roller furler.....sorry don't have a pic

Re: What's your dream boat?

The boat I have now fits my need perfectly, a 31 ft steel twin keeler of my own design. If I won the lottery I wouldnt change boats. By the time my first boat hit the water I wished I had done a lot of things differenly. The second one took me eight years befoe I wished I had done enough differently, to build another.My current boat is 29 years old and there is little I would change.
