Re: Allures 39.9

Paulo - I fully agree - unfortunately the 39.9 didn't show up at the Southampton boat show as promised. The 45 was there and its clear the interiors are a different quality. Al those chamfered...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Re: Clarc33

Nice - Looks more complete than some other recent retro daysailer/weekenders of similar size. I like the way the rudder being set well aft means they've kept the tiller substantially out of the...

Pilot (Dog) House / Deck Saloons etc - Vilm 115
