Anyone familiar with this Boat?

Been for sale for quite sometime - Portland, OR.

Seems never fully finished, no name, no home port...

Curiosity is getting the better of me! Anyone local know the deal?

Well it’s definitely a big boat with nice swim platform staples.

It is an interesting boat. It looks like it was built more to commercial specifications than to pleasure craft finish. I love the engine room.

I prefer steel. I like the workboat aspects of her. If only her purchase price and care and feeding costs were within my budget....

Have you seen the boat? Might be the time to make a low offer.

It strikes me as a boatyard built exterior and the interior was finished by someone else. The outside speaks of quality materials and workmanship. The interior looks like a much older boat with a lower level of craftsmanship. IMO....

I agree. For a 2007 it doesn't look a $400k interior.

Wifey B: Interior looks to me like an old DIY trailer in a dumpy trailer park, not even a nice mobile home. Then some things just weird, like the elevated washer and dryer in the ER. Like, oh there's a space, we could put it there. How do you even get to them to use them with crap in front of them.

I'm not all that impressed with the exterior either, although the hull looks ok, but not so much with the deck. Utilitarian and may be decent but needs examination.

The one thing that would give me hope is the quality of equipment I saw. Brands like Northern Lights, Sidepower, and other.

Now, also questions about the Oregon registration sticker. 2013. Does that mean it's not been used since 2013 or the photos are from 2013. Either way, a big question.

Looks like a lot of Residential stuff on the interior. Finishing a boat is not like finishing a basement or an attic.

Hell of a lot nicer than the room I lived in while going to college and working three jobs. One room, iron for a toaster and open windows for AC. But it was better than sleeping in an old car.

I was looking at that boat a while back. It's an awfully good price for a 2007, 60' trawler. I suspect that it looks a lot better in the pictures than it does in person.

I like the boat. Some of the interior is done in a different taste than I would choose but it's not my boat so I can't critique. I like the use of space in the ER. The headroom seems low but it might be the angle of the photographs.

Totally unrelated thread drift but I was noticing the anchoring setup & am wondering how does one attach an anchor snubber to a wire rode without damaging the wire?

She's built like a work boat. A good strong winch attached to a steel deck won't need a snubber.

Another look: The fit and finish is crude with some weird wall angles and other goofy build. If that's not important to someone it could be a great deal.

This boat has been for sale for some time. Since it is local I was intrigued. I would not mind a quality built steel hull. To me it seemed like it was home built. Definitely the interior and possibly the hull too. That can be OK if the builder has the skills and does not take shortcuts. Without a lot of documentation on how the hull was built, sand blasted, primed and painted etc you don't really know what you are getting into. Commercial plans or a one off, etc? Lots of questions.

I got a headache looking at the listing. I am not sure you could come out ahead if they gave it to you.

I’m thinking It is a pretty decent price and you should be able to get it for quite a bit less. A good survey Would find most flaws. I’m not in the market but if I was I would certainly consider it.
