Canoe Sterns or Double Enders: A dying breed?

I don't think there's anything as beautiful as a Double Ender - especially Mr Perry's designs!

Realistically, I'm 5 to 7 years away from buying my dream boat. Also, more realistically, some part of that boat will have to be financed.
I understand that boats older than 25 years are just about not considered a safe risk for any financial agency to take on.

So here's the issue: It seems Double Enders are done for. It does not seem there's too many built after the early 90's except the Valiants (I believe even they are now out of business?).

I'm afraid there wont be any 32 to 38-footers that will still qualify for financing after 2017!!

Am I wrong about this?

Any known new designs/plans out there from any designer / yard? (Please tell me there's a Double Ender / Canoe Stern revival in the near future - wishful thinking)

Pete

Re: Canoe Sterns or Double Enders: A dying breed?

Why do you want a double ender? Looks? Function?

If you like the looks, no one can argue with you. If you want one for function, then there could be some argument. I think you'll have trouble finding any reliable date/info that indicates they are a superior hull form.

FFF - Form, Fit and Function!

But I'll be honest - for me it's probably Form, Form and Form , and then function. Generally these boats are very capable - and yes, so are tons of other boats, but none has that voluptuous persona like a Baba or HC38.......

Re: Canoe Sterns or Double Enders: A dying breed?

The superior function of a double ender may be arguable and difficult to quantify, as noted in a previous post.

What isn't arguable is the historical & ongoing record of double enders for seakindliness and safe passagemaking in all kinds of weather.
The function of my double ender has always performed as designed and continues to keep me safe and secure in a range of sea states and winds.

Gotta admit, the form and aesthetics of my Crealock 37 makes my heart beat fast and puts a smile on my face.

A double ender has both style and substance, form and function!

Mr Robert Perry would be a good guy to ask about this?

Re: Canoe Sterns or Double Enders: A dying breed?

No doubt they are pleasing to the eye but going forward it will be best use per pound of fiberglass that wins the staying alive game. Due to ongoing world fiscal issues I don't see the boating industry expanding so less rather than more options in new boats will probably be the norm for awhile yet.
