    New Yacht Launched: New Morning

    If anyone is interested the boatyard where I work just launched a new yacht this past week. I would not call it our best yacht ever, and it does a have a lot more work to go yet, but from these pictures you can see quite a bit of stainless steel work, fiberglass work and woodwork.

    Ultimately I put 6 months worth of work on this boat and yet not a lot of that time will ever show. The running lines on this sailboat are unique in that they are all hidden in channels molded into the deck and hull. That way when its at sail all youwill see is hull and sails, no lines (ropes) controlling those sails.

    Its definately unique, and not a bad looking boat, just needs some more work. (and a few more millions of dollars tossed at it )

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    For a sail boat, sure seems to have a pretty short mast and small sails....

    Must have a pretty good Iron Genoa down there

    But seriously, with the hidden lines and all, and the looks of the covered cockpit? Looks like it's made for serious heavy weather sailing...

    Nice...

    It's an attractive boat. But not what I would think of as a yacht.

    Why wouldn't the mast have been stepped before delivery?

    It's normal to launch a sailing vessel before stepping the mast. The mast is usually setup and tuned with the boat in the water.

    Nice looking motor sailer. I'm not a fan of the reverse transom look but that seems to be standard on tupperware boats these days. I suppose they make sense if you want a place to easily board the boat from the water of from a tender.

    Who designed it?

    The yacht was launched, and they had a party. Then, over the next 4 ~ 5 days, the mast was stepped, rigging installed and the first sail made...

    And now you know....the rest of the story!

    Looks bigger and more 'yacht-like' inside than out. And the sails definitely make it look like a sailboat.

    I see Chuck Paine is the designer. He has a good reputation. Interesting stuff there, Greg.
