    Hi Guys,

    I was at the "boot Düsseldorf" 2008 and took some pics. But I've forgot a one, which looks like a big Wally Tender, but it was not a Wally...

    Thanks Rene! :)

    The last boat you pictured is a Farmont. I *thought* they were out of business, because their web page has been down for the past year. I spent about an hour taking a close look at this boat during FLIBS 2005 and I was going to do a review. I tried following up, but to no avail. The boat has a unique interior lay-out, but it's most redeeming quality is... it's a fiberglass boat that's built like a tank. The boat at FLIBS was their very first launch and it was a little rough around the edges, but otherwise it had a lot of potential.

    You're welcome :)

    Jannick: I wasn't on the big ones (Perhaps someday because I leave some CVs in Hall 6 and 7a. ;))

    Carl: BTW, it is the Blue Seas

    I like that Conrad Classic...check out their site.
    They look very nice
    (I'm a sucker for the work boat look)

    Brian,

    You are absolutely right. I stopped and found the website for the Conrad Classic before I even finished looking at the rest of the photos in this thread. I never heard of the builder or designer before, but that is one fantastic looking boat. I love that the hull is steel and that it has double-glazed windows. She is a beauty.

    Rene,
    Thanks for the pics and taking the time to post them. I like the fact that they have the big boats inside on stands/cradles. Gives you the opportunity to see the hull design and such.

    Rene,

    I think the boat you are referring to that looks like a Wally Tender is the Fjord 40 Open. Just so happens I've been looking at their website the last two days. They look like nicely built boats. Did you get a chance to go onboard? If so what did you think? Cheers.

    HKT,

    Yes, it was a Fjord.

    I don't have asked to go aboard, because I let CVs there and so it's clear, that I don't have the money to buy it ;)
