One that never breaks, never needs maintenance, is paid for and looks like a boat should look.

It's been a good exercise to think about a boat being a dream anything, but I suppose if it was a dream for me right now, it would need to start with a dream "stand up" engine room (something in the order of a Great Harbour N-47).

Having just returned from spending a few days aboard her again, I think I would have a pretty simple reply to the OP's original question.....

That's what the reset button (underneath the fuel-consumption meter) is for.

My needs are more modest than some. I think a Hinckley T55 would work just fine for me.





I mean, that's what I think tonight. I'm sure by morning it will be something completely different. I like this game

I fell in love at the last Ft Lauderdale boat show. I must have spent an hour aboard. I'm told you could actually see my heart break when they told me it was 1.6 million expletive dollars.

You can say our tastes are for the simpler things in life.

Simplicity is its own luxury! I think you should get a Coot. Maybe a green one with a white house and yellow accents. Maybe a big red sail. Maybe you could call it Cootquinez Cart, and keep it somewhere in SF Bay. Maybe you could follow Mark around flicking people's ears and tipping over porta potties. You would have to put a goatee somewhere on the boat, in accordance with the Intergalactic Treaty of Remulac regarding the identification of evil twins.

I do really like that, though. Reminds me of a '30s ocean liner. Can you get it with a steam engine and a black gang to shovel coal?

Man, there's no compromising with that one. You get a sundeck, a trunk cabin and a cockpit. Well played.

Nope, mine doesn't work. I guess that's broken too... Add it to the list, I guess.

I do love a Hinckley. Some of the prettiest boats out there. You're right, I think by the time tomorrow morning rolls around, I'll want a KK 52.

That said, I'm driving my dream boat and it only took 3.5 years to find it. It's relatively fast, has great guest accommodations, cruises or fishes, easily boarded, entertains quite well and resides in a 45' slip.

I have to admit, I never actually looked at an Ocean Alexander until about a week ago. I'm glad I finally did. The 423 Classico made my (somewhat realistic) short list immediately.

There you are! The lucky ones! I've often wondered what it must feel like to have bought the right boat...

This vessel has been the apple of my eye lately. The Passagemaker Lite 39, designed by our very own Tad Roberts. I don't know if any have been built or not, but I haven't been able to find any examples around.

There's so much to like here. The concept of the narrow, light, efficient hull shape is extremely appealing. Who here doesn't want great fuel economy and range, and the ability to do 12 knots?? Roll that up into a design as graceful and elegant as this, and you've got a real winner. She's absolutely beautiful.

The overall dimensions are manageable for single handing, but by pushing the interior spaces right out to the ship side, you have ample room for two to live in comfort.

I used to think I needed a raised pilothouse with doors on both sides, and full walk around side decks, but with this, I'd just do my docking from the flying bridge. 360 degree sight lines, slide the door open and half a step later, you're handling lines. Throw a Bimini over the bridge, and you're out of the rain. You could even throw an oxygen tent up there if you're really scared of the weather. I'd skip the tent, and spend my rainy days in that glorious pilothouse.

I love the full width boat deck. Lots of room for the dink, and plenty of room to walk around besides. The cockpit looks like a great place to watch the sun set in a comfy deck chair. The layout of the interior spaces looks so cozy and inviting to me. Tad's notes mention that he might move the head all the way up to the forepeak, to avoid breaking the main cabin up into visually smaller spaces. I'm not sure I would. I think I like it where it is. Same for the galley style... uh... galley.

I picture her with a beautiful flag blue hull, with a white boot stripe and sea foam green bottom paint. White on the pilothouse, and white decks with gray nonskid. Maybe just a touch of bright work. A nice teak caprail around the cockpit, and maybe some grab rails on either side of the pilothouse brow. No teak on the decks.

I'm absolutely smitten. Sigh... Oh, the places we'd go...
