Nice looking motorsailor, although I am not a fan of greenpeace.
OK re size of pics in future. Sorry, I hadn't taken note of that guideline.
I imagine Greenpeacers aren't big fans of buffalo hunters either. But I don't think you need worry much about that...yet...well, as far as I know, they don't yet have any prairie schooners out looking to challenge you. Or is it water buffalo that you hunt? In Baltimore?
Here are pics of some big motorsailing catamarans, representative of the latest advances in sailing yachts, like the Rainbow Warrior III, with A-frame masts for strength to support lots of furling sails for convenience and safety.
One of the biggest nuisances with sailboats is that the mast is usually right there in front of your face and the boom is right over your head, uh, that is, you're lucky if it's over your head instead of up side it. Anyhoo, both of them spars tend to stuff up the view when you're lollygagging in cockpit or saloon, but are especially annoying when you want to stay in shelter and still see where you're going. That's especially true of older sailors who'd like a 50/50 world, i.e., sail when it's nice, get indoors and motor when it ain't nice.
Another advantage for an A-frame mast: it's not right in your face. And a cat has plenty beam for sheeting down to the boat, so no boom needed.
See below for how The Missus handles sailing from the cockpit and how The Old Man maneuvers .

What an awesome yacht http://www.hetairos.info/#/home
That's not the same "Hetairos" as in the first video you know.. That one was built by Baltic I think. The one in the above link is by A&R.
Hi YN, Boy you are too sharp, I can't put anything over on you!!
Yes, here is the Hetairos in the video HETAIROS built by Baltic and here is A&R's Hetairos Dahm International - Yacht Design | Brokerage | Charter both gorgeous yachts built for comfort and built for speed.
Thanks for keeping me straight!!
The one built by Baltic is huge! She was one of I think three sup-sized sailing vessels launched in the last 2 years, "Vertigo" Alloy, "Hetairos" by Baltic and the other "Aglaia" by Vitters. Disco we are here to learn from each other right!? That helps makes YF such a lovely place to congregate at, virtually.
And the one by Baltic was this with the new keel construction what hast a crumple zone, which was "tested" on the St. Barth Bucket
A part of her keel is now on the ground: Remember Hetairos? Well this is her bulb after... - the slipway
I remember that but it is true, you haven't heard anything more about that since the incident.
The bit of the bulb that got stuck in the rocks had t be removed because of environmental issues. It seems a couple of tons of lead in a nature reserve is unwanted...
Well Lead would be a percieved hazzard in a pristine nature reserve...
ADELE...sailing superyacht, exploration vessel
I had forgotten about this subject thread,....such a collection of beautiful sailing ships. I was looking for more postings on this one in particular, ADELE, and found this very nice PDF that AMG had posted,...thanks for that.
I also found this rather extensive website about this vessel, with lots of photos and stories
Adele Design and Specifications
Adele Specs: Living on board Adele
Exploring with Adele - Map of Voyages
Adele is one more example of those beautiful large classical sailboats, build only for one purpose. One or two big cruises around the world an then being sold. I find it very sad, that the owners of those marbles are not able to build up more relationship to her masterpieces of traditional shipbuilding. IMHO, they should keep and using them for a longer period of time. You do not build a beautiful house either, just in order to give one party in it and then sell it to highest bidder.
Sorry, but I am a wholehearted blow boater. This is one, I like.
HTM09, I think you have posted a photo of a quite different yacht.
ADELE was shown back at the bottom of page 9 of this thread.
Yes, I know but I just wanted to say, that I like Meteor. Sorry, I should have stated her name on my post. I do not know why, but every time I think of a beautiful sailboat, Royal Huisman boats come into my mind.
yep, that's definitely "Meteor" in the above photo!
Well, we know where you can find extra digits if you lose any fingers AMG.
