Lara S, the 27ft hydrofoil assisted foding tri.

The last one cost 100 and was sold a few weeks ago at 160.
FX variation and inflation make it look good, but in local currency we just broke even. In reality we lost 10 years inflation in terms of local purchase power.

So true. I bought my Hobie 21SE for $2400. It was my first big boat and I figured I was going to keep it for a while. I had a modern EP spin made for it and a new main and jib from Clavert. Then a new trampoline. I remember someone at 05 Tiger Worlds in Santabarbara telling me that those boats were pretty valuable. In October or so, a guy called me wanting to buy it (it wasn't for sale). I told him the only way I'd sell it was to get a N20. He gave me $8,000 for it. Tha put me in the ball park for my N20, which I love. But, I wish I never sold the 21. I never really liked the H16 but it got me into sailing.

Robi, he asked how many boats you have had, not what you have right now. You did have the first Blade, did you not? And the Pheonix Capricorn? And a Hobie 16 way back? Where are you living these days? I heard you went to PR?

We need another birthday party for Andi!
oh!
Yeah hobie 16, San Juan 21, first production built blade f16 and the 2008 alter cup capricorn.

and Tim, I am living in Tampa now, I never left to Puerto Rico, going to school and setting up a business. Good times.

I think Tom wins. Dealers have had fewer boats pass through their hands.

pales in comparison to some of these lists, but:

wooden/waterlogged sunfish (family boat)
Alpha Romeo windsurfer (total What.T.F. were they thinking. WOODEN BOOMS!)
Boatload (literaly over a dozen) windsurfers of various sizes
Butterfly
C-scow (family boat) with badly leaking scuppers
buccaneer (barf)
Flying scott (double barf)
Hobie 17"ish". Not sure what the prior owner did to it, but was too young to care
Contest 30 (3 ksb)
C&C 36 (4 ksb but it does have a nice head)
I20/N20 (double yey!)
