Funky looking pilothouse

Is it just me, or does the pilothouse seem a little high?

http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2001...s#.UXc-X6N5mK1

Any idea what GPH this thing would get at a slow cruise? I have a motorhome I traded for at the car lot I would like to trade but I would hate to end up wih junk....

Thoughts?

The pilot house must have been an add on. From the pictures the boat looks to be in pretty good conditions and clean. If you get serious have a surveyor take a look at it.
The "master stateroom down" picture shows ropes hanging from the ceiling over the bed, the owner kinda kinky??

Someone took a working fishing-shrimping trawler and converted it to a pleasure boat. I'd take that upper pilot house and scale it back to a traditional fly bridge.

Boat looks a bit strange.

Now that's a sweet looking pilothouse. I especially like the wannabee windows, which contribute greatly to its muscular image.

Seriously though, a 3406 can use a bit of fuel, and the boat weight being what it is, I'm guessing 6 knots at 5GPH.
