LOL

 

 

The stupid useless coachroof is vertical and ugly. It is too short to do any good. The sheer is all wrong. The hullshape sucks, the rigging is parts from old boats willy nilly prtobably thje whole thing designed around that old T-boom and jib club. Oh and that cockpiut is actually worse than Doug's toiletbowl cockpits on his perverted indian sex machine.

 

Coffee a little bitter this morning? :rolleyes:

LOL no, just that this is supposed to be the "COOL BOATS"  thread!  Not the piece of floating flotsam thread!  Haha!

 

I look at it this way. Someone built a boat. It has some interesting direction but the design and execution is flawed -- ugly even. That person is sailing their boat, maybe even smiling as they do so.  That's cool, even in an ugly boat.

There is what appears to be a small rudder just ahead of the aft bracket on the trailer.


It wouldn't surprise me if that's one of two or even three.

Unlimiteds have one by the prop but the one that drags them into sharp turns is on the port sponson. I guess if they ever planned on turning to starboard, that sponson would have one too.

I dunno, the bow is a little funky...and they hate the thought of staying onboard. I wonder if they wax the deck for extra thrills.
 
00b0b_dFesVJtvjTR_600x450.jpg

 
I suspect someone was following the Sliver thread, but wears glasses like Mr. Magoo. Built a smaller replica. It has many of the details right- mostly white with a few wood accents, pointed at each end, classic opening ports. The fact that they are round on the replica and oval on Sliver proves my point . . . . just bad glasses.

Looks like Jay Bedford to me

 

 

It got me thinking about an Atkin design named Economy Jane. Pictures of one under construction: http://atkinboatplans.com/Photos/EconomyJane/index.html 

 

Clearly not the same. The EJ in the pictures is going to have a lot of lovely Atkin shape and detail, but that won't keep it from being a slow boat by any modern standard. Better to go with a Garden Eel.

 

The white boat looks to be built of some panel material and I wouldn't be surprised if it was aluminum. (The rounded stem doesn't look plywood-like.) Is that a dent in the bow, or just a reflection?

 

Hmm, didn't think it was aluminum but it might be. That would explain some of the crudeness of shape. It's not a yawl so I didn't think of comparing it to some of the classic canoe yawls (has Albert Strange already been mentioned in this thread?) The canoe yawl concept is a bit old fashioned. I've seen a couple Eels, only ever seen one sailing. It was tippy and cramped. There was an almost-finished one on Craigslist near us a while back.

 

 

Your minds eye is certainly better than the eye of whomever built that thing.

 

Goes to show just how important subtle variations are to the look of a boat.

 

Thanks, Fasty didn't seem to think so.

There are boats like that. The nice thing is that if you on it sailing, or even just sitting in the anchorage, you don't have to look at it!

It's not wood, and it's not elegant, nor is it necessarily beautiful or unique but, it's cool because it's a sailboat, I don't think it's a wreck, and it's cheap.

Here is a machine translation, as well as two links I found on this boat:

 

Drensteinfurt - boat Builder Mario Glade has built a seven-metre-long and 830-pound sailing yacht in his workshop in Büren. The prototype will be presented today to 30 September on the \"inter\"boat show in Friedrichshafen. Series production is planned. In the spring, the first sailors could test the boat.

Perfectionists, lovers and athletes - for all types of sailing fans is the new TS-23 yacht from the home of the \"shipbuilding\" Mario Glade a catcher. The new piece of jewelry that is issued from 22 to 30 September on the \"inter\"boat show in Friedrichshafen is seven meters long and 830 pounds.

In cooperation with Tobias Stüppardt from the company \"TS-Yacht GbR\", developed and built the first model, which he now presented to the public. \"We hope that we can sell the first copy to the boat show,\" Mario Glade wishes.

My parents first boat was similar to this that was purchased out of the Sears Catalog in the 70s called the "Surfwind".  It had a lateen rig like a sunfish, but was snub nosed like a scow.   This is also the boat I learned on as a child.

I was wondering why the tall cabin on such a powered up boat, then I got to the pic with a mountain of spinnaker in the hole. Turns out it has to be that tall or they'd have a pile of sail sticking out the top.

If it had a lifting keel it would look like one of the many kiwi backyard built trailer sailers, although they rarely achieve any other than a 'functional' type of beauty. Still, looks like it would be fun, although a lidless anchor locker seems a bit pointless if there is no roller or cleating hardware on the bow

If it had a lifting keel [...]

 

Looking through the datasheet it has one, 0.45 - 1.6 meter draft.

Without VAT, $75k ex boatyard. Trailer not included. Deleting stuff like teak and mahogany, the tarps, Dynema stays, carbon rig, Dracon instead of laminate sails drops the price down to $45k.

The 210 does not have plumb ends. 

 

Hunt Associates does have a 43' modernization of one of the bigger variants.

That's a 225 Bob.  Actually the precursor to the 110, but identical except just scaled larger.  The 210, while a nice boat, doesn't share the canoe body of the 110, and doesn't share the same speed potential.  The 225 in that picture used to be at the Museum of Yachting in Newport and was for sale years ago.  A friend of mine and I almost bought it... but it never came to pass.  The rig shown is a j24 rig, which I guess is approximately right, but not as designed obviously.
