    Anything, Best looking, fastest, loudest, biggest

    RE: Best Boats in the world

    For as much as I like the speed, sound, and power of drag boats (have attended countless raves) I have found the big offshore races to be pretty spectacular. The sight of twin engine cats and vees at full throttle with helicopters chasing just 20ft overhead is something else.

    By the way - this pic was taken in Patchogue NY

    RE: Best Boats in the world

    If you like Chris-Craft's, you'll love this one! I took these shots a couple of years ago at the Kruse Int'l auction in Auburn, IN. I would have loved to tow this baby home but I was just a few bucks short (OK, a lot) of the $90,000.00 asking price. Yes, it's a Cobra.

    Would you rate that above the Herreshoffs? Been aboard a few Herreshoffs and think they would be hard to beat in quality and finish (for their day and most days since). .

    RE: Best Boats in the world

    You can get into classifying boats for things such as for luxury, racing, fishing and other classes.
    For the pure fun factor though I'd love to have one of these babies..........

    RE: Best Boats in the world

    Like Ron says, a lot of clasifications. Best boat in the world would be comparing a lot of apples to oranges.
    The USS Missouri, for battleships. The Greavette Shields, for wooden classics. The Bluenose or the 16' Lazer, for sail. Apache Warrior, for offshore racing. Best boat in the world huhh?
    For me it's the canoe. They've stood the test of time and are still pretty hard to beet.
    And I double dog dare anyone to disagree. LOL

    RE: Best Boats in the world

    To me the commuter yachts are the best. They were elegant and very fast. They were used by the "Titans" of industry to commute from their palatial estates to NYC.
