Really now? “No bad weather, just bad boats?” It’s an old Danish expression, but I heard it for the first time in Holland. Sure, it’s a little bit …. judgmental? But I’ll give the Danes this: When you boat on the North Sea, and have since the time of the Vikings, I say you’re entitled […]
About Dave Mallach
What makes a yacht great, and why? Who makes a great yacht, and how?
The answers to these eternal questions of yachting are my obsession here at The Fog Warning.
The blog springs from my twenty years’ obsession with the design, construction and sale of fine yachts. Much of what I’ve learned comes from my experiences with classic designs, like those built by Zeelander, Hinckley, Vicem Yachts – and now with great promise – LongIsland Yachts and Hartman Yachts.
But I cover the waterfront, so to speak, for quality yachts of any style. So if I can help find you a fine yacht that meets your dreams and schemes – Whether custom, production, or brokerage – just launch a flare!
Thanks, and enjoy!
