Say it with us: “I’m on a boat!”
Of course, depending on where you live and what layer of the economic strata you land in, you’ll probably be picturing something different than the person next to you. Some of us think of the humble fisherman bracing against a storm at sea. Others might be taken back to memories of their parents ditching the 9-to-5 and sailing them around the world. Others still may be thinking about the studio yacht party at last year’s Cannes.
Whatever thought or memory is conjured for you, one constant remains — those boats had to be built well, so as not to end up at the bottom of the drink. Last month, Van Dam Custom Boats showed us the mastery that goes into their stunning crafts. Here, take a peek:
In honor of that mastery, we’ve compiled a list of some of our other favorite boats we’d love to spend a day or 70 out on the water with. Some are humble, some are bombastic, some are faraway dreams. All of them are superb.
