    So ive seen a lot of auto discussions, but is there any boating interest on SF? I'm a yacht broker by profession, so I see first hand a wide range of yacht styles. What are your favorites....

    Oh, if you must do motorboats, my jaw did drop one afternoon on a Rivarama on Lago di Garda.

    Not mine.

    Energytech Marine 83 HD-X [​IMG] 12 knot cruise in the open ocean on full electric, or diesel/electric hybrid. Or whatever the sail will get you. Also - replenishes its battery charge by moving through the water, or being anchored in current - giving it supposedly global range. Interesting technology anyways, and a snappy looking boat!

    I like the larger ones that still employ sails. Skylge [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I hate that most "nice" yachts seem to have tacky interiors.

    Oh...me too

    The 118 WallyPower to be precise. Still smitten (and still don't have one).

    That Jeff Coons yacht is pretty cool too.

    I like a lot of the Lazzaras (Im in Clearwater, FL), Azimut, and I've done some work with Outer Reef. Dad has a Sea Ray 540DA with the TNT on the back.

    (I sell yacht tenders...definitely meet some interesting people)

    I've heard the boat business has been horrible recently. A nearby dealership is liquidating.

    I love yachts; one of the things I enjoy that not many people know about. It sounds like you have an interesting job, Woody.

    I quite enjoy Pelorus as my favorite large megayacht-

    However something more manageable would probably suit me better-

    Sometimes of course you just want to fly across the water, and that's where Fountain and Cigarette come in.
