Any of your crowd have a 40 or 44 Tolly with gas?
I saw one with twin 454s for about half the price of diesels.
Could buy a lot of gas for 70 grand.

Greetings,
GOOD GRIEF! Interesting is not the word I'd use to describe this vessel. Although it IS interesting that her listed Previous Port on Marine Traffic is Raffles. I didn't realize that the Singapore Sling was that notorious a libation to warrant designation as a port. More of a Gin, I'd say...

Looks like it needs escalators. Port up, starboard down?

I didn't think those yachts(believe there are 8 total) could look any uglier but painting that one black certainly did it. I think it and the other 7 are fractionally owned or this may be a ninth in the series. Hard to believe more than one person would pony up to buy and maintain that ugly duck.

I know that lots of us here are fuddy-duddy traditionalists, but when you see these radical nautical "sculptures", do you ever wonder how it would look if you just chopped the gingerbread off of it? No disrespect to the Architect or his creative effort, ....just wonderin".

That is a phenomenal improvement! And you have to imagine that the views from onboard would be dramatically better.

I quite like the "radical" yacht designs that have been coming out, like Steve Jobs' boat and the round one pictured above. Mainly because they're different and are trying something new. Far, far better and more interesting than the bland, melted plastic, running shoe look that has dominated the recreational boat market for the last twenty or thirty years.

At least the "radical" boats are interesting to look at. I don't even notice the Bayliner-Carver-Sea Ray-Ocean Alexander-Meridian-the list-goes-on boats in our harbor anymore. They are just white blobs that all look the same and don't even register anymore other than they are there so don't run into them.

Looks like it is powered by twin outboards.

I have seen that boat in several mags. I am not that fond of those designs. As Heal showed, a lot of that is just fluff added to a fairly basic design.

On the Northern Marine, I have never liked the huge shift in the sheer from the bow down to the salon level. That has been a consistent design feature of theirs on all their models. It is very awkward lookingto me and really accentuates the height f the bow. It actually is quite odd because you would expect a lot of interior room, but when we looked at a 65' before we bought our KK, the interior was really cut up and not very roomy. The 65' only had two staterooms and did not look to have room for a third as an option.

I definitely tend to be more of a traditionalist when it comes to boat design, and usually don't care for stuff like this. But this one... I don't mind this one. The steps look kinda cool. It would probably take half an hour to fall all the way down them, though. Who's got time for all that?

Some.

Yup - Gas engines really reduce purchase cost. Good gassers can be good power plants... so can good diesels. Both type engines must be in good condition or expenses mount. However... gas engine expenses are usually about 1/4th to 1/5th that of diesels.

IMHO - In boats 40' and under gas engines are OK... much over 40' and diesel is needed.

Not sure how many will find this interesting, but there's a Pilgrim 43 for sale. I believe there are only 4 of them out there, so it's a rare opportunity. I'm not affiliated with these folks at all, just an admirer. I'd move aboard this boat tomorrow if I could.

Interesting design. I need aerial view to get my head fully around the Pilgrim's (inset??) fly bridge. Thanks for showing.
