Re: Sailing yacht design

If I could chose any boat out there , it would be the one I have. By the time I launched my first boat, I wished I had done everything different. It took ten years to get to that stage on my second one. My current boat is 28 years old and there is very little I would change on her.
She is 31 ft overall for easy a handling an d ow expenses, steel hull so I have no worries about hitting anything in the night. Not having to worry about doing any serious damage when hitting rocks etc adds greatly to one's peace of mind and leads to far more impulse sailing, on a momentary whim.
Her 4 ft draft and twin keels let me dry out any time offering far more bullet proof hurricane anchorages, and have eliminated moorage and haulout fees for me in most of her 28 years.
I have avoided the super wide stern sections which lead to lack oi directional stability and can leave her helm for along time on abroad reach, making sailing her far more enjoyable. She has an outboard rudder which makes self steering and inside steering as simple as it can possibly be. he has a wheelhouse which enables winter BC cruising in a T shirt. Her 1 1/2 inch of sprayfoam insulation and airtight stainless wood stove, makes her warm and cozy in winter.

You might be interested in some of Bieker's work. He designed a boat in our club called Strum that I think might just appeal to you.

Riptide 50 Strum






Paul Bieker really did find a nice balance for performance cruising. With it's water ballast system, a lifting keel that brings the 12' keel up to 7' and a powerful sailplan it is blazing fast, and yet it has all the creature comforts you could need! Perhaps she doesn't have a ton of fancy woodwork, but I love how clean and bright she is and as a result she is a very impressive 13,540lb in cruising trim.

Ahhh! If money was no object....

You can read more HERE if you are interested.
Now that is what I call a nice boat and I am not talking just about hull. Very nice interior too

Regards

Paulo

Jeff: What is it about the Hake that disappoints you? I ask because I have been very impressed by the concept and by what little I have seen of the boats at the shows.

Thanks.

Re: Sailing yacht design

Same designer. Thought you'd be interested in the evolution.

Yes I was. Sorry if i misunderstood you.

The design evolution is neat, especially in what concerns design interior and also in a lesser extent, in the hull design.

I do not like the design of that big fixed dodger, but the hull is already very modern, with the beam brought aft, a two wheel and two rudder set-up. Absolutely remarkable and very modern for an almost 20 year old design.

Some contemporary boats are way older in its design pattern

Re: Sailing yacht design

Did not know McKees boat was for sale. Not that I can afford it! Still would be a nice boat.
