WOW! See what happens when words are taken out of context? I become a multimillionaire!
Just an FYI: This "Take the Wheel" event is a little money making gig for someone at the Annapolis Sail Show. For $250.00 (we dug deep for that) a couple can "take the wheel" of a sailboat. They don't tell you much after that, until after you purchase tickets.
I really expected a selection of boats that would cover the range of what the average sailor would buy, not a list that ranges from a 38' Island Packet (not a cheap boat by any means) to a 54' Hylas - pocket change, if you're a billionaire.
When I saw the list, I really thought this whole thing was a bit deceiving but I figured I'd never be able to own any of these (except maybe an old IP) so why not be a millionaire for the day?
Now watch, we'll get there and there will probably be 20 or more people waiting to take the wheel and each of us will probably spend 10 minutes behind the wheel before we have to hand it over.
BTW - Hylas no longer makes a 54' so that boat they included on the list is used. I'm expecting the rest to be also.
But seriously, this is the boat I was looking at buying but someone beat me to the punch.
