    ‘‘Mooie Meid’’ could not have been better named. She is a fine looking craft.

    Thank you Easy,

    I know that boat (at least I remember I have seen it in the past), if I recall well, she is a English* made of the 70ies.

    Thank you Tad,

    don´t be lazy, your design has the 3rd position by so far!


    *no, Dutch, to W. de Vries Lentsch design.

    As a retro lover, I voted the Fantail "steamer". Thou she does not look as seaworthy as the others? quite a small prow...

    I agree. it will be not difficult to make the necessary alteration.
    All lumber with beefy framing, heavy crank activated pocket window from Baklavat for the deck superstructures, a beautiful Greena in the hull, a lot of good draft, steel cast davits for tender and one for the anchor, expensive deck, small accommodation, well rigged mast, anchors on the hosepipe, protected against chafe with bronze plates, cooper sheathe underwater.
    Could be nice.

    When it comes to designs by Willem de Vries Lentsch, Jr., I'm particularly fond of this one. Admittedly, her LOA (61') is shorter than Richard's original specifications, but you can't mistake the de Vries Lentsch lines.
