    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....

    In the interest of full disclosure, I'm a Sunseeker dealer...however this was by choice, as my personal preference is reflected.

    My favorite.. Sunseeker Predator 108

    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 don't make enough money to even think about a sail boat. [​IMG]

    Burger Boats, some of the finest made. And of course, Paul Allen's 420 ft monstrosity...
