More Than Just a
Photo Gallery of Cruising Yachts

If you're here, you're clearly interested in cruising yachts; and if you're fortunate enough to own one, the odds are you'll have taken a photograph of it. If so, we're hoping that you'll be willing to add it to this sailboat gallery and share it with other cruising boat fanatics...

But it's more than just a gallery of cruising boats; we'll provide the specification for each boat featured, together with links to other related information.

Some of the cruising boats featured here will be large, opulent and correspondingly expensive; others will be small and more modestly priced.

Many will sport a simple sloop rig, while others will be cutter-rigged ketches, yawls and even schooners.

And not only monohulls, but multihulls - cruising catamarans and trimarans - will be well represented too.

But my bet is that the most popular cruising boats will be moderate displacement, fin-and-skeg GRP sloops between 35 feet (11.6m) and 45 feet (14.0m) long overall; but who knows!

But to find that out we need loads of pics - so if you're a boat owner, please use this simple form to upload pics of your boat and we'll do the rest.

Alternatively, just attach your pic(s) to an email.

Here's what we've got so far...
