Other boats with these lines are…….

Fjord, Vanquish, Pardo, Wajer, Solaris Power, Alfastreet, Evo, many others

Their nickname is Day Boats. That’s what the Europeans call them.

I get Walley & Van Dutch confused

I ran into one (I'm guessing that one, as they are a bit rare) tied up in Long Beach by the Yard House. It was a Walley per the crew on board. They were not willing to trade me for my Bernico 🤔🤬

I've been satisfying my boat needs through renting boats lately.... now that I see this Van Dutch has a bimini I may try that one on next outting. I gotta say its pretty cool just showing up and walking off at end.... but I do miss driving.

Pavilions was all booked. We tried for over a month out I think my wife said. We stayed at the Metropole. Everything was was great. But like you said Pavilions with the wine and cheese hour. Location. Nice little green area to get away if you choose. We just couldn’t get in on our days there. 😟. I told the little woman find out when we can get room during the week and book it. I’ll just not work. Lol.

Avalon's crowded in season.... I'm a fall/ winter boater out there.... I hate crowded anything. At Pavilions off season you can walk in anytime and get a room... don't forget that crazy good breakfast. Just perfect for the trip across to home port.

Sad part is they are not doing the full on breakfast right now which you are correct was pretty damn good. . They aren’t sure when they will be bringing it back. At least that is what we heard.
