    I have mentioned about the project Pilgrim prior to this. She is a project by Wally yachts to sail in the classic era and vein. Here are some quick dimensional stats:

    LOA: 60.90M
    LWL: 49.00M
    BOA: 8.40M
    BWL: 8.0M
    Draught: 4.60M
    Max Draught: 6.50M

    There are a few newer pc generated images, deckplans and so forth on the Wally website of the project Pilgrim. You can go there to see them at:

    That bow does not go well with that stern. :rolleyes:

    She probably would be quick through the chop with the straight bow but it does not do well aesthetically.

    Oh, I have no doubt she'll cut through the water beautifully... however, given the "retro" theme of the project, putting a modern styled racing bow on her just does not fit. The IMOCA/Open front end is totally at odds with the long sweeping stern and J-Class style deckhouses. I appreciate that Wally likes to meld speed with style... but this one comes up short.

    For once, Wally was not first with their styling, this is about 100 years old...;)

    Still doesn't mean it's pretty. ;)

    Basically, yeah!

    Even more overhang on the bow and stern would be great too, like the J-Class "Ranger" for example:

    Tonight this boat was sailing outside my house, she must be your style then...?

    Personally I wouldn´t mind the Pilgrim, eventhough she might be a tad too big for me...:eek:

    Ram bow? looks like from a very early style warship. The who concept looks like a Carinthia VI.

    Back to the Pilgrim though, the only thing that I do not like about her is her bow, while it might prove to be very efficient it is definitely does not go with her deep sloping stern. A J class bow would have looked better?

    A recent example: Christoffel's Lighthouse by Holland Jachtbouw:

    http://www.hollandjachtbouw.nl/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=28&Itemid=51

    or on Gerard Dijkstra's site:

    http://www.gdnp.nl/sailingyachts/CHRISTOFFEL'S%20LIGHTHOUSE/Christoffels%20Lighthouse%2000-04.htm

    I like the look of these yachts, but if I went for a classic-style yacht I would definitely go for long overhangs both fore and aft.

    As a retro-modern fusion I think Pilgrim will be a killer though... might even look better than its sisters of yore...

    outmywindow, did you concoct that thing yourself? Either way, it actually looks alright. Goes to show what a fabulous design it was to begin with (no pun intended).

    Yes, this is what happens when you have an hour to kill and to many cocktails.
    But it would be nice if a pro run with it and made it into something feasible.

    As of right now, I have had only one inquiry pertaining to its acquisition...

    Yep, that's one beautiful yacht Lars. :) Personally, I like the two ends of the spectrum.... I'm a little less enthusiastic about what's found in the middle. Racer styled, high-tech (a la Wally) or pure classics like Spirit Yachts and others in the same style.

    I understand what everyone is saying about that bow stern combination being a bit unsettling, but aren't most Wally designs a bit unsettling at first? I think that's why their designs are so successful. They are just different enough to create a slight dissonance, but still beautiful and pure enough to intrigue you. Give this one some time and I think you might come around to it.

    With that being said however, I do agree with you Kevin. There is just something about that classic look that companies like Spirit capture so well.
