Assuming modest riches....we would scale her back from 70ish to say 38'?

Art and Walt,
Just trying to say your post was interesting. Since this is about "interesting" boats I thought you'd take it as a compliment .. it was.

TAD,
I like that but a lot like a Willard Voyager. I have friends w a Voyager that would love that.

Dude,
Who says we're running out of interesting boats!
This one's great. From ventilated topsides to a real dinghy to a real stack. Now that's a proper dinghy. I never like stacks (funnels) but this one's so well done how can one not like it? Look at the fan tail structure under the aft end of the upper deck. Not to her credit though she is a bit slab sided. Thought there was an OB on the wheery style dinghy but it's a stern light. Stout posts for an upper deck .. no problem. Not a boat we'd be likely to see in the PNW. Interesting indeed!

There was also a cannon in the front and a set of big whistles.

That is the ill fated Northern Marine vessel that immediately did a slow roll onto her side when she was launched last year.

I think Tad was having a bit of fun when he included her in his photos.

Tad,

I may be wrong here - but I'm pretty sure nobody builds boats like this in Port Alberni. I'm from there, and get up there frequently - and have not ever seen boats of this size being built. Are you thinking of another city BC city?

Wherever it was built, it is a beauty. More info.

Wow - thanks. I'm amazed - it was built by Alberni Engineering. I didn't think they built anything that large.

I've posted shots of the fisheries vessel Pelican before but she was recently moved to the end of our dock. I shot this iPhone picture as we entered our harbor the other weekend. This is what I consider to be near flawless design aesthetics. By comparison, most modern production boats seem in my view to be blobs of melted plastic.

I don't blame you for being doubtful, but ya, it really happened. The project serves as a warning to those who would undertake a large custom boat from a startup builder. Alberni Shipyard/Engineering was not really a startup, but they had never built a large custom yacht, they had built dozens of commercial vessels.

The project ran way over budget, years past the contracted completion date, they had to rip out and replace the first interior as it was not anything close to yacht quality. Then they launched and forgot a transducer or something, filled the new boat with saltwater, back to yard for another rebuild.

Ocean Haven Yachts folded under the weight of the multi-million dollar lawsuit resulting from their first build. They then became Alberni Yacht Corp., I have a thick file of work done for them , none of which was ever payed for. The van Wachem family (Nanaimo Shipyard Group) was behind it, but soon learned it was a great way to loose a bunch of money.

In the day (2000-2001) they were running full page adds in Passagemaker Magazine.
