Eric and Craig,

A sailboat would be a hybrid if it has an auxiliary engine.

Well stated!

An interesting boat - but its going to take a long time to work out all the bugs in what is effectively a custom, electric boat with all the complexities that suggests. In concept - great. In reality... I'm sure its going to be a painful process to support (servicing expertise? where would you find that if things break down?) Its going to take a long time for the reliability of an electric/solar boat to come anywhere close to that of a well-proven diesel design, and because things are moving so quickly in the world of electric vehicles - I suspect the depreciation is going to be unprecedented... but I think its great that they are being built and I will watch it with interest.

Mr. NS. I agree. Sittin' in the shade with a line out watching the world go by would not happen on this boat.

I was looking at Yachtworld this morning and came across this Ed Monk designed raised pilot house listing:

1982 Sunnfjord Pilothouse Trawler Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

The Left Coast guys might be quite familiar with them. Anyone with some words of wisdom on Sunnfjord Yachts?

This is a very popular commercial fishing hull. I have several friends that own this hull and love them.

Very inefficient setup. Twin 6-71's to cruise at 8 knots??? Crazy. Even if the add is true and the engines are running at 1200 RPM, you are still burning almost 7 gallons of fuel per hour. And at 12 knots you're using 11.8 gph. I would guess the price is low because no one wants this power. With only 200 gallons of fuel you have just enough to get out of sight......

It might be nice if you were planing to stay tied to the dock. The wheelhouse is nice and bright, dash is a mess but that's minor. The propane heater is bad news, and installed in the wrong place. Heaters need to be down low in the boat, otherwise they just heat the ceiling.

If I had that kind of money, I would charter instead. After all, if you have a boat like that, it comes with a crew. So, if you're just going to be a passenger (albeit in charge), why own it.
