No problem, there are quite a few more 'individual' boats like this. I will make an effort to get more photos to show you guys what we have on this side of the planet.

Another interesting boat spotted last weekend. The brass cowl vents really looked impressive. Looked like quite a bit of time was spent polishing before leaving port.

Finally found the pics of this boat that I have seen in our area several times. You really need to look at the web page to get the full concept.

Stability Yachts no rocking or jarring movements 365 days a year of pure fun in the sun!!!

Interesting Nimble and in 3' seas it should be fine.

But I think I'd fear for my life in 12 seas.

And it's no swan.

I think I'd prefer a boat.

But I love interesting boats so thanks for posting.

That's actually quite a nice looking vessel design,....certainly nicer than a lot of those modern 'curvy everything' designs.

Lancer was a company started by Dick Valdez after he sold Columbia Yachts. They built an extensive line of motorsailers, sailing cruisers and one notable racer/cruiser designed by Bill Lee. The rest were all designed by a guy named Herb David, who later did some big trawler yachts in Taiwan. The motorsailers were wide and flat-bottomed, often with big twin diesels, to power at 12mph or so. The flying bridge versions had a boomless main that sheeted to the backstays.
Perhaps a multihull version might have looked like this boomless mast-aft powersailer

Great addition, Nimble. She looks pretty weight sensitive though.

Bill Garden design

This one has been for sale for a while as well.

58 Philbrooks 1973 Outside Victoria, Victoria

Two get home drives. Apparently this is for the truly anxious (or maybe it's for people with more than one primary dwelling?).

One of the auxiliary drives is a prop on the aft end of the rudder, which also gives it a kind of stern thruster I suppose. And phenomenal maneuverability at a dock.

Northern Spy, those are both great boats. Interesting boats. And stunning that the second is a 73 build and one owner!

What a gorgeous boat http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2012...20/Osaka/Japanthis is...


Must be a story for it to be lying in Osaka. Perhaps the owner picked it up at the Norseman Yard and didn't get very far? Based on what must have been spent to build this boat, it must be a sad story.

I'm always curious why many of these motorsailers don't carry more tankage. 300gallon of fuel doesn't seem like much for a passagemaker like this... Or for an engine that large.

Or perhaps the owner lives near Osaka and wants to purchase something else?

It is a beauty and Japan would be as good a place as any to cruise IMO.

Another beauty along the same lines though with less sail area and no karaoke machine....
