Reminds me of Tidahapa, one of my longtime favorite cruising boats on the forum.

Beautiful boat. The broker often advertises interesting high quality salty boats, not fashionable newer ones. Viewed broadly it has look of a converted trawler, but up close appears to be anything but, and to have been purpose built, perhaps using a tried and true trawler hull design. Tempting you Auscan?

Bruce,
It certainly does tempt me. The only fault I can see is that all berths are singles.

A couple could almost sleep in that engine room with the gorgeous Gardner - but I'm not sure my wife would feel the love in the threesome as much as me.

Other than that, she's hard to fault.

Yep a good boat. originally built for David Beer a truly well traveled mariner. He has a glass boat these days. He is also a very good friend of Jim Stewart. I recently posted a couple of photos of Jim's boat Storm Boy 11 and David's boat but can't remember where.
Auscan you would love that boat, I am sure there is a double there somewhere.

Well, at least for me, that is a boat with few compromises. And Hollywood's mention is right up there too, albeit in a somewhat more sedate but equally elegant decor.

Sleeping with the Gardener worked for for Lady Chatterley.

Ah....to have the cash to throw at such a project as that one. She's a long, lean beauty.

She's got nice rocker and a real nice and efficient looking run aft but a bit slab sided. Neville can hardly do wrong by my way of thinking.
At 5.5 hp per ton she's almost the same as My Willard.

What's this about passagemakers? I thought this was a trawler forum.

Actually the best deal is a $1.00 lottery ticket.

A Dollar a Dream ,

(of course with any math its a looser) but cheap enough for a buck because it Could come true!

FF that's the worst deal when you consider the odds.

Only fools buy lottery tickets.
Let's see .. how many can I insult?
I have never bought a lottery ticket.
