    Not an idea about the price but the woodworking alone must have cost a small fortune.. :(

    My favorite (Dutch) yacht

    Produced by Mulder in aluminum, this 68 foot "express" just about captures it all for me. Beautiful lines, gorgeous woodwork, and simply lavish proportions - constitute my idea of a true "yacht" - albeit in the "personal class" size. :p

    jules verne vitters boat

    No doubt this is a very well designed and built boat and it was giving very good trace to designs to come from Rene van der Velden. However, I wonder why they have installed that car like wheel? I am sure a more classical wheel would have been a much better choice to suit the personality of the boat.
