Big boys toys

I'm not a fan of motor boats generally, but you can't help but admire some of these big and flashy cruisers. You can get a sense of scale by looking at the skipper and the crew. At seventy two feet, getting alongside the dock in what is a crowded marina isn't for the faint hearted.

This season's colour scheme seems to be black and chrome, with just a hint of art deco.


  1. Wanna' bet those guys have a bow thruster?

  2. and stern thruster's too, just as well when it's blowing hard, I reckon there's more windage than I have sail area!!

  3. Growing up I spent a lot of time on power boats. I like them, but I prefer a more traditional design.
