It's listed at $70,000 at the level of finish in the photo's.

If it were me, Misty Girl would get "fine workboat" treatment rather than "luxury yacht", so the finished product cost is hard to say.

I make no pretense about being an ocean crosser. I am not one. Like crossers or crosser pretenders I suppose, I am an addict, and like them, my drug of choice is adrenaline. But unlike them I suspect, I get mine from the businesses I run. If I am away from the businesses for more than a few days I am disoriented and antsy. I do not dream of retirement. I am in the middle of my seventh and most complex and demanding startup and could not stand being away for long. I am aware that is not a popular view, but being away long enough to bring this boat home on her bottom is out of the question. I am neither capable of that, nor willing to give up that time. Period.
So why two boats with the capability to do it? The stretch of water from the Columbia Bar to Cape Cook is all within three days of home port for both of these boats. I might be willing to make the argument that crossing capability and that kind of sea keeping ability is exactly what I need for cruising these grounds even if it classifies as 'coastal' and is relatively close to home. Forecasts considered, mother nature is still the boss in this stretch of water and she has proven many times to be suddenly ruthless even to well qualified craft. For me, it is only this kind of boat that provides the psychological comfort I need to go out with family on board and many folks still counting on me to return and do my job. Not rational I am sure, but since when is anything about boating rational?

Plus...look at this boat. Just considering the interior fit, I would buy this boat for anything from living at the dock to inland cruising without considering it's seagoing pedigree. It's beautiful.

Sounds like we have a European surveyor identified so I may get to see the Netherlands soon! And yes, it will be a quick trip so I can get back to work. That is what floats my boat for now.......

Wish my Admiral could read this and understand that the concept behind all my boat projects is psychological comfort, rational or not. Very well said.

Larry-I think that rationality and boat ownership are mutually exclusive concepts!

For boat lovers... boat ownership... is a concept many term an "addiction"!

Word meanings of "perhaps" and "always" don't work well together in this instance. Especially when it is clear that the word "never" could be the operative word... pointing a sentence toward any direction desired.

Mark...does that "dutch" door latch flat against the pilothouse?

One top requirement for my boats is that I have is a door I can stick my head out and see forward at night. If the door is in the way...that is a big problem for me.

I just mentioned that at the marina last night...the 42 Grand Banks for sale at the end of the dock has the same issue, only the whole door is hinged, opens forward and is in the way.

And for those that think there's a way around it...please let me know so I can tell a boatload of people how to fix the issue....loosely meaning...have never seen or heard of a working alternative.

Misty Girl is a dream boat. I had always wanted to convert something like that, but, I don't have the skills required or the money to have someone else do it. I just love the "old school" look....and the sea capabilities!

Pilot house catamarans; interesting trawler cat design in a workboat sort of way.

Would make a pretty explorer yacht.

Yes, the upper half can be latched against the pilothouse when open, and the lower half can be latched to the upper half when closed or open. One needs a wide-enough deck for the swinging door.

Lol!

let me explain; I'm only interested in work boats and trawlers, so maybe not as pretty as a nice tug or lobster boat, but the attraction of a cat is that you can chugg along at 10kts instead of 8 kts, it doesn't roll and you only need small engines.

Of course they also can cruise at 15kts without pushing a wall of water in front of the bow.

I'm investigating the idea of a steel cat as a home build project . ( yes I know that's an oxymoron; steel and catamaran should never appear in the same sentence)
