In honour of yacht designer Stephen Seaton recently joining TF, here's one of his designs up for sale. Somebody invested a lot of time in this one before the dream ended.

A little rough around the edges, and be forewarned, there have been "dozens of improvements" over the original design...always a red flag;

2013 Seaton Trawler Long Range Custom 56 Power Boat For Sale -

Same design at a better price with active fin stabilizers and paravanes, Mojo (Sluggo);

http://www.yatco.com/vessel/info/124...-United-States

Many more designs and higher quality builds here;

I was under the impression that Mojo was sold.

Art, that would work for me. These boats are true passage makers with transatlantic range. Probably then some for Pacific cruising. Even with paravanes and stabilizers I would have lee canvas on the sides of the bunks. Rolling around on a centerline queen would not be fun. Also, the engine rooms are great. I seriously considered buying Mojo. I wanted that boat, but circumstances being what they are I calmed down. Still, I kinda kick myself a little for not buying it. It had a big industrial rated none turboed Cummins in the center of the engine room. You could walk all around it, and professional stainless steel tool drawers around it. 'em are nice boats!

Thanks Don. Glad to hear the engine rooms is great. Center queen would offer reduced throw on rolls, compared to side bunks. I would invent a way to remain restrained on the center bed... in one way or another. I would not buy a pleasure boat just for tall disruptive waves at sea. I would buy it mostly for pleasures. Linda and I like a king... settle for a queen in boats. Side bunks would not please the Admiral - nor me!

Sort of reminds me of the Pilgrim 40 design, but I think the Pilgrim made better space use of this length vessel.

I was suggesting the use of a steel hull as well, with a composite sandwich superstructure.

I remember that film as a teenager...WOW !

Single Perkins, Stand-up engine room, I'd hope it doesn't need windows, interesting vessel, ad says one of six.

Arent the anchor snubbers the ones that are supposed to be tight and the chain itself with the slack?

A 1:1 depth/rode length ratio is more than dodgy as well! Hopefully they were just dropping/raising when the photo was taken...

Nice, roomy boat - Even the Oxy Tent does not look overpowering.

Just had chance for one quick picture of this beauty, on the outer dock of Lulu's in Alabama. Note the external rudder hanging on the stern. Does anyone know what she is?
