Well, it’s decided. One day I have to be filthy rich so I can own a Hinckley yacht. A DS42 to be specific. I can’t think of any other way I’d rather spend $1 million dollars. Yes, charity would be nice, but if I was being strictly selfish (which I probably would be if I had a million bucks), I’d immediately go out a buy one of these amazing sailboats. Expensive clothes, purses, and cars? Eh, I’d still probably wear t-shirts from Target, but this boat, well, it would be first on my list to buy.
On Thursday we went to the Annapolis Boat Show and as soon as I stepped foot on the Hinckley DS42, every other yacht in the show immediately looked like a floating hunk of trash to me. Literally, this boat is art.
It’s funny because when we moved I noticed that almost every picture in our house is of something related to sailing. Whether it’s a painting of the ocean or a an old schooner or the moon over Lake Erie — all our art seems to revolve around boats and the water. Maybe that’s why I loved the Hinckley so much — it literally is so pretty it could be a picture. I can’t think of any other material possession I’d love to have as much.
Ah, at least now I have some serious motivation to be ambitious!
