What a difference compared to the "running shoe" in the berth to starboard.

Re: Black or off coloured Yachts? Opinions......,

Not too dark, but my Santana 30 is a nice bright medium blue....LOVE the color. Its the original gel coat, from 1975...and yes it still shines!!! I love the darker hulls...on some boats its stunning, on other boats its just blah....

As Bill Garden put it - "a fleet of white, plastic, triangular me-too's".

Exclusively white boats look too much like the nearly exclusively silver/grey/white that cars have become.

Borrrrriiinnng.

I'll take coloured hulls most times thanks.

Re: Black or off coloured Yachts? Opinions......,

As a traditionalist.. I would love to paint my (soon to be) boat black with white bottom paint and tan topsides.. I have also found that Yellow is quite striking looking too if done right
