October "Power & Motoryacht Magazine"

Does anyone else get PMY? A couple of interesting features in "The Cruising Issue" - one with Tony Fleming in the Aleutians and another about a couple how are living aboard and cruising on a Nordhavn 40 in the PNW.

The Nordhavn cruiser had a lot of good advice - a lot of which has been mentioned on TF previously. "To the extent you're considering living aboard while cruising, get the smallest boat that you can comfortably live on and manage". I sure wish the member with a $200K-$300K budget for a single-handed long distance cruiser who's now considering a 57' McKinna for $385K gets a chance to read that and soak in those lessons.

But my favorite article was "Majestic Triumph" (I can't find it on their site) - where the editors of PMY named "the 25 prettiest boats".

Some of them were obvious - "Aphrodite", a Trumpy 58, the Hinckley 36 Picnic Boat, Huckins Atlantic 44, Riva Aquarama...awesome boats.

What I noticed was that there were no "trawlers". The closest was a GB EastBay 54. Aren't there any pretty trawlers?

Yes - and an Abaco 40 (which I wasn't familiar with) and Palm Beach 55. A new style of boat that look a lot like...the Huckins Atlantic.

But the Bertram 31 pretty? I think they missed on that one. Iconic, transforming, sure - but not pretty.

But no GB 42?

Other than mine, I can't think of a single one.

Oh Keith, I have to disagree. The Bertram 31 has a perfect shearline. Beautiful boat.

31 Bert is one of the best looking boats, ever. Love the sway to the hull.

Of course there are. You just have to know where to look.

+1

My brother has one and it attracts admirers everywhere it goes! While I might agree with Keith that it is not 'pretty', I've seen very few boats with more universal appeal. IMO it is the very definition of a classic boat design.

Prettiest Boats of All Time

I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with probably half of the list. What's that Donzi doing in there?? Maybe the Bertram looks better in person, but that picture doesn't do anything for me...

Donzi

The caption says Donzi 28 but it looks like a "Sweet 16".

poling,
Says Donzi right on it.
Nix the Regulator, the Jupiter, the Donzi and several others are questionable.

The late Skipper Bob actually coined that or at least made it famous. I added the emphasis on "you'.

For those of you who enjoy great looking classics, many on the smaller side, there is a fun and long running thread on The Hull Truth :

Ah, didn't know him. Sorry to hear anyone's gone, but very glad to that Dr Bob is still going strong (he was at Lake Powell with the C-Brats a couple of weeks ago). He was a significant contributor on previous incarnations of this forum.

He still posts on THT under the moniker "thataway'.
