Many boat enthusiasts especially like the so-called classic. This is a motor boat or sailboat which was manufactured before 1970 in a classic way. The commonly used materials are wood, aluminium or steel. The original boat must be fully preserved, in order to be a classic. Any subsequent amendments may be done, but only as part of a restoration. If modern equipment, for example, fittings and carbon sails were to be added to the boat, it would no longer be a classic, but a vintage yacht.
A classic is extremely popular with real enthusiasts and have become a proper philosophy of life. Owners of classic yachts are often involved in clubs and organize regular meetings where everyone can present their most recent classic achievements and share their latest experiences.
The maintenance of a classic can be more labour intensive than that of a modern yacht, due to the material they are made out of. A wooden classic must be treated regularly to prevent damage to the wood. A steel classic must be protected against rust.
The world's largest producers of a classic include Dufour and Beneteau in France and Bavaria Yachts and HanseYachts in Germany.
