    Default Classic GRP Yachts; this is mine, where is yours?

    Production of boats using fibreglass technology has been around since the 60''s. Nowadays, many of these boats are considered as classic designs with classic appearance. This is my Macwester sloop 31ft built in 1971 and still going strong.20170923_181146.jpg20170423_170827.jpg

    If my foresight was as good as my hindsight, I would be a multi-millionaire.

    Vindö 32, built 1980.
    (There is some GRP missing here, must be a semi classic then?)

    Ditto, except mine's in the Clyde.

    I do wonder what it would cost to build another to that standard today.

    So basically are we saying any boat built before, say, 1980 is a classic? In that case I shall ‘re-categorise’ mine from MAB to CAB and add a zero to the price when I sell it. Sweet.

    More than you'd be prepared to pay, I guess. If yours is the one I think it is it's a much travelled wee boat, having been as far north as the Faroes.
