      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

What brand / design is this?

12 posts in this topic

Hi,

I thought I was good at spotting designs / brands, but this one really gives me a hard time.

Do you know it or know what it is?

Looks like something scandinavian to me, following some Reimers ideas, but I have no idea what model, design, yard it is.

Have you got any idea? Any suggestion welcome!

Jan

A Newport?....

Not a Newport. Pretty boat.

My guess would be maybe a Scandinavian build of an S&S design from the mid 70's.

 

I hope that guy knows where he is going!

That next tack will be a short one.

I found her! Googled the photographer, and there, in the backyard of his website, she was: It's pretty recent and a >>drums<< Ron Holland M-46

M-Yachts seems to be a very small swedish yard, I've never heard of them before.

Nice body. Hope it's ok to post her here.

You can find more pics at m-yachts.se

Bob, ironically I found her in article advertising a website from the Swedish CoastGuard or sth, where you can report unknown shoals / stones that aren't in your chart.

Wonder how they expect you to find out about them, though...

Well, mystery solved.

Nice looking boat. Very pretty profile.

 

S&S design from the 70's? What do you expect? I'm all screwed up with my cleansing diet. I can't think straight.

I think I'll go to the grocery store, " I'll be in the Bologna section" and see if any hot housewives notice how clean I am.

And that, sir, is why I love Scandinavian boats.:) Utterly gorgeous, and they do basic bathymetry with their keels. And survive.

 

Holland did quite a bit of design work for Nautor/Swan, where he probably was asked to hew to that brand's S&S style cues. He also did the attractive Omega 34, some Nicholsons (which are bombproof but I find them not so pretty), and some Ericsons -- maybe closer to production-boat build, but strong Nordic lines to them.

 

It must be hard to sell that low freeboard and wedge-shaped coach these days, when the few people buying new (at least in the USA) are mostly concerned with volume and motoring performance. Boats like this one appeal to my eye, but they are 'small for their size' by contemporary measures.

PERFECTLY RIGHT, the Omegas! This M-46 seems to be closely related to the Omega 46, some details have improved in my eye, but look it up and say what you think.

I once chartered an Omega 36 with my father in Denmark. We topped 14 knots once with one reef and furled Genoa.

Thats one 198x design, weighing 5tons, sporting 62 sqm. Compare that to -I don't know- the latest Dufour 36: 70 sqm, but at 6.4 tons.

The weight is even comparable to the latest FinnFlyer 36, which is built with a good portion of carbon in it...

I'd chose an Omega anytime over a new production boat.

btw: They still do one Holland design, the Omega 10m: http://www.10meter.se/

Bob, I'm curious what you might say, I think she looks a bit like Amatis little sister?

Actually the line is "I was in the balogna section" and it comes from a song by Johnny Guitar Watson called IT THAT A BITCH.
