    Not me- I am saving for a Hans Christian 43T. That's my dream boat. The mahogany one is beautiful, but even if I won the lottery, I would not want that upkeep, and I am a guy that actually enjoys varnishing. The mahogany boat would require crew. I want just myself, my wife, and my daughter. Here is my dream boat: http://www.hanschristian.org/brochur...T_Brochure.pdf She still has plenty of teak to keep me busy.


    My grandfather built mahogany runabouts and it's on my to-do list but all the designs I find are more for lakes. I thought about building a Calkins Bartender with mahogany planking. I have too many ideas and not enough time.

    Thats interesting. I love the boat as it is. It has that beautiful wooden look. For me putting any paint on it would ruin it. It would certainly be a beautiful yacht either way. About the upkeep its expensive, but if you have enough money to build such a boat, you have enough money to maintain it Imagine getting for your money something like this insted.
