    ...or even a 120. I think my design might be to cluttered though :)

    In the light of recent events, 220m doesn’t seem that unlikely anymore. This is my old 202m New Years Eve (2011/2012) concept with some minor changes and slightly stretched to better harmonize with the overall dimensions.

    There are quite a few classic beauties in the Swedish archipelago and after a recent visit onboard an absolute gem, I was inspired to draw my own version.
    I think my own personal classic yacht would look something like this. 64 ft. with accommodations for 8 and a 17 ft. runabout barrelback to top it all off.

    The modern details would be discreetly blended with the wood interior, like in some of the Van Dam built crafts. I’m actually planning a GA for this one :)

    Like to see a floor plan on this latest design.
    The lines are very nice, just not in brown.

    The floor plan could show the access from the pilothouse to the side decks, I can't see where this might be. Would make a big difference in the practicality of this design.

    What I really like about your Classic designs is that they are not modernised copies of the old time original, they just take the essence of what made the look "kind to the eye" and then become Kajan.
    No one remembers the guys who made replicas with modern insides.

    When one of your boats, or Lars are seen, someone will say Kajan or Modin!
    They are unique.
    Same as we say Ed Monk Jr. or Fexas or De Fever.

    I feel the brown/wooden hull diminishes the lines too much. Seeing a proper, varnished wood hull might be a beautiful sight though. I'm kinda' mixed on this one...

    Gentlemen, I’m thinking sliding doors to allow passage to the side decks.

    Did I just doze off? Time really does fly. Lately I’ve been helping a dear friend visualize some ideas for a pocket sized gentleman’s yacht, 30 feet mahogany in this case.
    The idea was to have a double berth in the forward cabin, a galley and head, a saloon with a dinner table for four and a fixed roof with 6 ft. head clearance.
    The owner also wanted an open aft deck with 2 comfortable built in lounge seats, a place to watch the sun set and contemplate.
    The brief also stated the possibility to have some wind in the hair while at the helm.

    I believe some of the design cues can be used in a 35 ft. tender design as well, Venetian style.

    Reminds me of the 1929 Swedish Petterson we used to own and used for the Amsterdam canals.

    It was Swedish.
    It was a beauty but a lot of maintenance.

    If you Google ”Tärnan 1929”, chances are it’s your family’s old Pettersson boat.

    hahaha Yes it looks almost identical, but it's not our old one.
    I will try to find a picture of her.
