Beautiful boat, but I don't think it has any characteristics with lobster boats.

I think it has a nearly flat deadrise, fine bow entry, and of course the lovely bow shape of a trad lobster boat; but just like you say I doubt if one has ever seen a real lobster except on the barbie. Lol!.

Not many lobster boat designs have hard chines, (JC/Eastern, Wesmac excluded), the argument being the trap will catch on the chine. Looks like no full keel on the Sam Devlin boat.

You're quite right, I'd forgotten about the keel and skeg on lobster boats; and of course the devlin has an out drive leg instead of the shaft .

Maybe lobster boat replica would be a better description .

Just a quick boat ID on a photo posted by Eric at the end of page 9 (several years ago!) - that lapstrake hulled sailboat is actually a fiberglass hull - she's a Nor'Sea 27. I sold mine to a family in Seward five years ago.

Perhaps not that interesting to many, but quite interesting to me. Steel of course. Powered by single Mercedes.

Bill....yeah, that boat appeals to me, wannabe windows and all. Of course, I've also been accused of loving ugly boats. Know anymore about it?

I'm new here, so my opinion may not count for much but in the Trawler World forum - that vessel is everything I would expect a recreational trawler to be.

I have got a US broker trying to buy it for me but the time zones and language make this slow and tough. She lies about an hour from Amsterdam. Freight will be nearly 1/3 of the final cost of the boat when it gets here but I am completely smitten even from this distance. Unless there is trouble with the hull, I can swallow about anything else I expect.

Thanks for the link! She's an intriguing design. Even has a joystick rudder control- power steering.
I didn't see any engine room shots, so it might be a little disorderly down there. I wanted to see that 320 hp V10, I never saw a Mercedes in a boat before.

Bluto,
Here is your picture of the V10. Dry exhaust. We have run them in farm equipment for years, common in trucks. I have also never seen one in a boat.

The engine room is a bit cluttered as thirty year old engine rooms with add ins tend to be, but pretty decent overall. The Dutch brokers do not seem to like engine room pictures and they barely refer to engines and mechanicals in their ads. You have to pull it out of them. They prefer to show the bling on the interiors it seems and this one has plenty. The European listing has more pictures.

The dutch make some lovely barge inspired designs.

I like this simple kotter(?) design with the vertical stem..

I think it maybe what we call a fortress type anchor here in the UK; or a deriviate of one.
