The Van Dam Geronimo might sound more like a classic Western movie than a yacht, but the boat’s rounded cockpit, forward love seat for two, and modern mahogany construction place it squarely in the cool commuter category. The Michigan builder, known for its modern wooden classics, designed the 38-footer as a kind of luxurious picnic boat for 10. The rounded cockpit, defined by red leather and teak floors, was gleaned from 1920s commuters, and its white cabin looks more like a classic sailboat than a modern motor yacht. The cute love seat on the bow (also with the teak floors and red-leather upholstery) is a nice touch you won’t find on many other boats. Geronimo is powered by twin 300 hp diesel engines for a top speed of 35 knots, but a fuel-efficient cruise of 20 knots. Its 24-inch draft and propeller tunnels mean the boat can be safely beached without damaging the running gear. In profile, Geronimo carries its classic look well from the bow aft, but the circular shape of the cockpit and tumblehome stern give the boat a distinctive look.
