Default Miami Boat Show

Went to the Strictly Sail event at the Miami Boat Show over the weekend. There were some wonderful boats. It's easy to fantasise about Hylas, Oysters, Island Packets, the big Jenneaus, Bennies and Catalinas....and some of the catamarans which approximate huge water borne condos.

But I fell in love with the Bavaria 42. Brand spanking new and with a sail away price (for the boat show) of $221,000, this has to be the best value ever.

Now I have to spend time convincing myself that I don't need one.

It is a very good show (the available food though is bloody awful and hideously expensive) and the place to see all sorts of wonderful technology. I found the new tech energy generators to be quite special...as were the Rainman water recovery units (http://rainmandesal.com/index.html).

Man...If only I had a lazy quarter of a million dollars gathering dust in a cupboard.......

Pretty yacht for sure. There are a couple of used examples in Oz right now, starting at AU$185k for a 2005 model.
