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




I am almost positive they're not approved of by the old guard of sailors but I appreciate the look. Although I couldn't imagine choosing one over the classic white scene for various reasons practical and not.......,

Just looks like any other stinkpotter occupying a hole in the water to me.

It looks like a cookie-cutter rich man's toy. No character and if someone gave it to me I'd sell it and buy a boat.

As as hull color goes, I always liked hunter green or deep sea blue for a large boat and Bimini blue or red for a smaller one.

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

Are you just asking about the color? I like the looks of a boat with a dark hull, but during the summertime in a warm climate, they are a BAAAAAD idea! They get much, much hotter than a boat with a white, or at least a very light color, hull. Unless you plan to spend most of your time outside the tropics, or run A/C all the time, go for a light color.

And don't even THINK about dark colored topsides!

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

I do like darker colored hulls, but we couldn't go with one due to how hot it would get below, and it's likely we wouldn't have air conditioning. But that boat....I'm sure their AC is running ALL the time, but they also look like they can afford to have it to.

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

You guys haven't seen nuthin!

I saw a boat like in the OP that changed colour! At each different angle the light made that section of the boat, or the whole side, completely different. From purples through earth reads to bright greens. Truly amazing.

It was in the Med when ass is class.

According to NGH,
There are only two colours to paint a boat- white or black, and only a fool would paint a boat black."

Draw from that what you will.
