Quite interesting small motor-sailer, I like. Should she be closer...
Don't know for you, always sad when owner sells... much emotion invested in a design project...

The owner reported after his first 300 mile cruise that he had used 25 usg of fuel, (about 12 mpg). Which supports my preliminary numbers below.

That's it's main drawback Larry, it's really quite small. Ideal for one person longer term, fine for two for a day trip, tight for two over the longer term. A 26-28' version would be better for two people.

The Timbercoast is in Anacortes at North Harbor Yacht Sales. It's cute, it is smaller than I thought it'd be. 5kt cruise speed, better bring a book.

That's a cool boat.

Not sure how it makes it around the world with that 260 gallon fuel tank however.

Donsan,
I looked at one several years ago. Great boat but the one I was looking at had no afterdeck ... much like a sundeck.

Dude,
They are very efficient and may have as little as 3hp per ton. This is no SD hull but a deep and heavy FD design. I think the one I looked at had an 80hp JD. Like Mark's boat but much larger.

Think it possible the broker screwed the ad up? That's one efficient boat if it can get from Europe to the canaries on 260 gallons.

Looking at the listing, the boat has what looks to be a pretty generous sail plan. Every Colvic Watson I have every encountered was a motorsailer, in which case, that cruising range is easily within the realm of possibility.

Size-wise and design-wise, it loosely resembles a Fisher 37 which weighs 14T, has 80-100HP and carries 100G of fuel. They have larger sailing rigs, but also motor-sail frequently in lighter conditions. These designs routinely cross oceans.

101-there is a boat here at Shilshole in Seattle that looks a lot like that one, just as ugly. I will look later in the week and see if I can find out what it is.

Whatever it is, it is one ugly damned boat!

Interesting vessel. Looks best suited for a colder climate with no outside seating except possibly on the cabin trunks. The only thing I'm particularly curious about is the decoration on this outside hatch - what am I looking at?
