Well what the hell else would you call it? In a world – yes including sailing – where retro seems to rule, there is seemingly nothing that can’t be called retro. Retro cool elevates the concept even further. Did these guys just do that?
A group of sailors with the idea of making Ericson Yachts hip again are already underway. With plans to be built in a Southern California location, they are starting off with, bizarrely enough, the Ericson 37. We hear the thought is to capitalize of the revitalization old One Tonners, they are starting with their own.
We have no idea what the mods to the boat will be or at what price point, but man, these guys get points for having giant testicles. – ed.
