    Default Black Knight, one of the nicest motor yachts

    I saw these pictures on Yacht Forums, I know I'm usually a sail guy but these pictures are exceptional, they were taken by the administrator of the site.

    Wow, nice boat! Can you imagine maintaining all that bright work? Must be a full time job.

    She has permanent crew and "dayworkers" or at least had. She was the committee boat for the 83 cup

    Admit it, part of her appeal to a sailboat guy must be that she has two masts (umm...ketch rigged?) and ratlines. She is gorgeous. Thanks.

    Update:"Black Knight" is undergoing a restoration in Newport this year.Her cabin house has been lifted to gain access to the side decks etc, fuel tanks and other structural members.From what I have heard the work is going on to re support her cabinhouse as it has sagged from
    its original specs.
    *more to follow as info becomes available, maybe pics later.........

    I remember admiring her as she entered the harbor on Cuttyhunk more than thirty years ago, it was heading toward dusk & she glistened. Beautful!

    If I had a dollar for every girl who found me unattractive, eventually they would find me attractive.

    You can charter her for $18,000 a week. I'd guess that fuel would be extra.

    There must be several members of her maintenance crew who sleep with their varnish brushes! Lovely boat!
