    lovely varnished hull

    Beautiful vessel once you look past the fenders. I love the wood.

      They talked about somewhere to the left of a fjord that I didn't know but I'll ask.

      The fenders may have had something to do with coming down the Caledonian canal
      Not so very important though, I don't know the crew anyhow...
      The vessel only reminded me of a Ulset Boat production, but looking at the details, I belive the stern is to high above the waterline.

        Thank you so much... I do remember occasional trips on this boat in my childhood very well. Looking at the image again today, I remember his boat as a much longer version, but everything seemed larger when I was young.

        I do remember fishing trips, I do remember that very special scent on board and I remember all the wood trimmings. It was a very home-feeling boat.

        He lived at Sundalsøra, so the boat used to be docked there, and he used to sail very often to Hitra, Smøla, Kristiansund and other outlying islands. He even sailed all the way to Northern Norway before he fell ill. When he fell ill, my aunt was forced to sell the boat, and I have no idea where it ended up.

        I think he used to call his boat Gunn Karin.

          "Malene Østervold" (an ex. Coast Guard vessel) in Kristiansund today. She's now rebuilt as a seismic vessel

            Looks like they kept the Gun to fend off angry Fishermen off Lofoten

              I had to look and see the details of this boat- found the spec and this video

                What is Wind Horse's purpose? Yacht, military, fishing...

                Registered in the Caymans and the glass area on top makes me think yacht. Then the long low lines and gray color make me think military. And then the light tower one the foredeck, and long rods (or thin davit/crane arms) on the aft deck say "fishing".

                  Thank you. I hit "enter" one minute too late.

                    At first, watching the video Wind Horse looks a bit too fine in the bow. She burries her bow pretty deep in rather small waves. Then I suppose she cuts through bigger waves instead of plowing or climing up them. Looking at the brochure she has the lines of a sailboat, and moves quite fast on a small single engine. Without much superstructure she is incredibly stable. Purpose built for long range, economical cruising. Actually a smart design the more I look at it.

                      I recently read about her somewhere... she is a very innovative concept vessel, and the really unique thing about her is that she is not a sailship, but a motor yacht, but with an extremely low fuel consumption compared to similar sized and type vessels.

                          Some of you may remember that back in January this year I almost ended up on this container vessel called Tege: time was not right and due to some factors, I never got to sail on her:

                            This "Bucentaur" gave me a strange feeling that I've "been" here before.... Here's an image I took 3rd May 2007
                            Here is another picture of the Bucentaur in Kr.sund. This one taken by "remote control" from Singapore some years back.
