I would have to say that if I won the lottery...that would be the boat I would want to own. Beautiful & elegant with eye pleasing lines and room for all your family and friends.

Wow! Absolutely stunning.

I am not so sure of the safety of the large saloon windows though. Judging from the photos they had no deadlights in place when in heavy weather in the Southern Ocean.

Magnificent boat though. I'll buy a lottery at once!

ELEGANT for sure, but not for me. Even if I had the money I would prefer the solitude of my love, and I. Guest would always be welcomed, but I truly enjoy our sails alone. I wouldn't want a permanent crew.

The photography was beautiful, and inspiring. Thanks for posting the site.............

Nice to see that we agree. Even though I seriously admire the ship and the way she is fitted out I am reluctant to own anything larger than a boat I can manage on my own. Small ships - small problems.

That does not stop us dreaming though......

I agree! Big Boat, bigger problems and more of them. I myself don't like sailing on a vessel larger than what I could handle alone. I think that fact is inherent in most cruising or passage making sailors.

But didn't we all start off with a dream, which for most us, has or will come true. Dreams are the things that keep us motivated towards achieving the goal; Cruising.

I think it will be a sad day in my life when I stop dreaming of far away lands, white silica beaches and deserted tropical islands.

Just like the guy said when crossing the road at the start of the movie "Pretty Woman"

"WHATS YOUR DREAM!"

Top class photo's. I'll get there one day just need to learn to sail and take pictures. And hopefully the world can throw one of those Jen's at me to.

The photos are indeed absolutely stunning. I'm considering requesting the proprietor to grant me a few of them in a bigger format.

I was in French Polynesia in 2002, paradise on earth!

I was thinking the same thing. I wouldn't mind having a large format version of a couple to frame and hang in my office...but then I would have to store them when I push-off.

Funny thing the way that works ;-)

TRIM,

You may have to store them, or toss, but they would make great items for inspiration. My office is full of pictures of past travels, and future projects. I just staple them against the wall, and daily I am reminded of where I have been, and where I will go!

I already have enough trouble with executive management knowing that I plan to go cruising soon. Without a doubt it has made it impossible for me to get promoted. On the other hand, they are always worried about pissing me off because they know I could leave at a drop of a hat...at least that is what everyone believes.

If I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't let anyone know that I have a boat, much less plans of going cruising for many years.

I think there's a point where you can't do things yourself that takes a lot of the fun out of sailing *your* boat....he may own that, but I suspect that its the *captain's* boat . I had a 54 which was just too big to singlehand in weather with any degree of relaxation. On the other hand, this owner's cup of tea may be exactly that - surrounding himself with friends in a palatial boat in a heavenly location. Not altogether a bad proposition for that stage in a wealthy man's life
