I'm pushing my luck with my current plans for my next boat.  There is no point at all in me asking about adding a couple of 100K GBP to the mortgage !

I'll just have to keep dreaming...

Does anybody else not get these boats? They're the size and cost of a yacht but with the practicality of a dinghy, but with less places to sail them and less of a race circuit.. I'd love to have a go on one, but it's not exactly at the top of my wish list of boats!

I don't think they are for "ordinary people", even those with the money to get one. They are designed to appeal to sponsored teams by being spectacular enough to get TV coverage.

For the most part, by the time people have that kind of money to spend, they are at a point in their lives where something with a keel appeals a bit more.

Curlyben you should have 2 wish lists.

1. Boats you wish to own

2. Boats you wish to have a go on.

The Extreme 40s, VO70, B&Q trimaran, Open 60 Mono and tris, 18 foot skiff are all my number 2 list.
