It has a rather checkered past and in recent years suffered the embarrassment of being run up on a charted rock in Wasp Passage. It was commissioned by the Navy during WWII, fitted with machine guns, and used to patrol the California coast during the war.

Returned to yacht condition after the was it served as a charter vessel for many years. The Boeing Company often chartered it to play host to airline customers, suppliers, and other companies doing business with Boeing until the company decided to purchase their own 120' yacht they named Daedelus.

If you Google M/V Malibu Seattle you will get some articles about the boat.

Nice looking boat (2015 Boat of the Year, post 2443). Great interior. The only downside to me is with only 160 hp in a roughly 46 foot boat I'm assuming it's pretty slow. So that would make it a non-starter in my book. But outside of that, I quite like it.

Ugh. Being different just to be different. But just how functional are they? Would not work for me. No decks!

Marin,

I think you might be right about the speed. The builders state "The first Panorama FF46 is equipped with 2 Yanmar 6BY3 - 160 HP engines and has a maxiumum speed of 11 knots." With a single, it would certainly be no faster than a S/L ratio of 1.34 or about 9 knots.

They also state it is a "Fast-sailing apartment with a large sun veranda." I would say they met their design objective.

Unlike many trawler builders they probably don't offer the boat w only one engine and if they did it probably would be about 300hp.

Marin I'll bet this boat is a lot lighter than your GB. Can your GB make 11 knots w a much smaller hull and more power?

The specs say 24 tons. Our boat is 15 tons. The 2015 boat is 46 feet, ours is 36 feet.

Marin,
Why does it have such good performance? Narrower?

Is your boat 15 tons according to a travelift scale? If it's manufacturer's specs or something else? I suspect you're boat is heavier but it's a long way to 24 tons.

I could just see RT (if only I knew what he/she looked like!) giggling hysterically at 48 knots;

The 46' 2015 boat has a beam of 15'. Our 36' boat has a beam of 12'.

When we had our boat hauled a few weeks ago it was just shy of 30,000 pounds on the Travelift. That was with half fuel and full water.

Perhaps this boat actually has a SD hull. One w rocker that's narrower at the stern and has considerably curved sides. If the hull was closer to a FD hull it's performance could be that good at the speeds mentioned. There was no talk about it going 18.
