    First boat bought in 2000

    Princess 32
    Broom Ocean 37
    Fairline Targa 35
    Broom 41
    Sealine S34 (currently)

    Now thinking what the retirement boat will be and in line with some of the comments on the Future of Motor boating thread we are wondering whether a single engined mobo might be the way to go or alternatively a yacht or motor sailer.

    Actually Azimut 47 was the most loved one. But she was replaced by SS Manhattan 70 due to bigger space issues. Cobalt 276 is ideal size for my use here so no need for replacement came up.

A few years later a family friend took us out in a dory in Devon, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. After that, I always had the idea that when I grew up I was going to get a boat.

    My own progression is
    1999-2004 Searay 180CB
    2004-2005 Regal 2450 LSC
    2005-2007 Fairline Targa 37
    Had a boatless year 2007-2008 while I was away for work
    2008-2009 Princess 42, the only new boat I've ever had, but didn't get on with it
    2009-2019 Fairline Targa 40, meant to be a short-term stop-gap boat after the P42 but turned out to be a fantastic craft and kept it for 10 years
    Past tense for the T40 noted J! I hope she brings as much pleasure to the new owner as she did for you. If you ever need a Fairline fix then I'm sure JFM, jrudge or I can oblige.

    Boyhood:

    Mirror
    Rowing - 8s and single sculls
    Sunfish (I think it was called. Lateen rig. Easier to walk on water than sail upwind)
    Enterprise x2
    Solo
    Windsurfer (Ten Cate original)

    Large gap caused by competing sources of expenditure until my late 30's; then:

    Jeanneau Fantasia (2001-6)
    Sunseeker Porofino 31 (2006-7)
    Aquastar 33 (2007-14)

    Boatless since...
