    If you had won this big one, what boat would you build?

    Mine is pretty easy.

    An Amels X-Bow with a Cabo on a slider on the stern, a Spirit sail yacht on one side and triple Yamaha 200 RIB on the other.

    Some young blonde girls may be involved at some point. :D

    I would design a Leander look a like with a modern touch and built by Feadship.
    Interiordesign would be Bannenberg and Rowell design.
    The name of the yacht would be "It's all relative" :p

    Yeah, I helped to design Leander and Bannenberg hated every bit of it.

    Well, I hope his son has a better view on a true gentlemans yacht.
    And as long as I am paying him to do the inside design, then I dont need his opinion on the outside design. Otherwise I would hire Remi Tessier for the inside.

    I also love the sl94 but it would be a bit to cheap for me:cool::cool::cool:
    I think it has one of the best inside designs.

    I think the 85m Niki currently built by L├╝rssen in Rendsburg would be my choice! :) (even when she is pretty expensive)
    or one of the Amels LE 177/180/199...

    Mhm for the interior I would choose Bannberg&Rowel or Reymond Langton.

    Umm... Never really thought about the interior.

    My salon would be from Snap-On and involve old Moto Guzzis' internals and bits of Land Rover. :cool:

    I would hire a mean guy to follow me around and poke me with a sharp stick every time I said anything about buying a boat.

    60 meter steel expedition yacht similar to "Pangea". You can then forward my mail to the south Pacific for the next few years.
  14. would simply build my own design SeasSoul 78m. Interior design done by me as well. None yacht out there meets my expectations being different in port

    Pretty much with you on that one.

    Proper boat.

    The only trouble is while in the South Pacific, which is mostly a bit rubbish, has pisspoor anchorages and not a lot of marine infrastructure.

    Yep, I would bugger off there too for a couple of years. Next would be the West Coast of South America. I'm not sure if a big boat has done a real good cruise there yet?

    I don't know but that would be the plan too. I've never been to the south Pacific but I'd like to see for myself. The nice thing about a boat like that is if you don't like where you are you point the bow somewhere else.

    Yeah, knew that, was just going with the spirit of the thread. In reality you would have no business buying a $50 million dollar yacht if you expected to be able to run and maintain her and have money left over for anything else.

    Hi,

    Even with a 1/3rd of it after whatever your state holds it's hand out for you could still have a nice sailboat with a few crew and spend long periods cruising the So Pacific which in my opinion beats the Caribbean hands down if you want to get to remote places and peaceful anchorages.

    I know Fish did it on a big motor yacht for it's day as one of a cast of many, it is not the same as being less in number on a smaller boat.
