The vintage 12 meter GLEAM visits Cuttyhunk

In our recent 2016 Boat of the Trip post, we mentioned that there was another vessel that merited consideration. That boat was the 12 meter GLEAM, which seemed to be in for a photo shoot. She was certainly and unusual and interesting visitor.

So why not a bunch of love? We have to say, while certainly attractive, she did not wow us. There are certainly fine elements to her and she seems well-maintained, but nothing that stood out as really special. Even her lines seem a little pedestrian for a yacht of her era, to our eyes, anyway. I am sure many would disagree, but she just doesn’t have that Chine bLog “thing.” Silver medal, GLEAM.
