I like her shape. A bit too bright for me. It looks like a good start to a world tripper.

This is the boat I Dream about. Honestly. I priced it out. Over $1M to build. Not really surprising I guess.

The philosophy behind this one is superb. Twin (small) engines, no gen. Simple, mile eating, boat. To me, it's just awesome. I could tweak the sail plan maybe, but certainly a home-run as is.

Please build it! Then maybe I can afford it when you are done cruising.

Did you spec it out in aluminum ?

Edit: Sorry. Not enough coffee. Devlin is the plywood guy I remember now. Was thinking about Kasten Marine. They also design some fine looking motorsailors.

This is one of my favorites. Aluminum hull, freestanding Junk rig, 175HP Deere engine with CP prop, bilge keels so it can be grounded and remain upright.

Before I bought our N62, I was in serious discussions with both Michael Kasten and Sam Devlin, to design my 'perfect boat'. I was so ready to go down the rabbit hole with one of these guys, and have 'er built. But the financials ultimately got in the way. I was looking at least $2M. We were not sure how invested we would be into the cruising lifestyle, so we ended up buying our compromise, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise, for so many reasons.

I still have an itch to build a boat however, and I will do it one day, in retirement I guess. Excuse the Heresy though, but it will be a sailboat, and I have full plans from Sam Devlin and from Dudley Dix. Right now, Dix is winning out, but I change my mind about 19 times a day over these things, so one never knows, including me!

I understand the obsession with building a boat. It sounds so interesting, romantic and challenging, but I know ultimately I canít do it financially or probably temperamentally either. But itís fun to dream!

As for your N62, I agree you made a great choice. Maybe you could add a sail rig to it like I did to mine? That may satisfy the need to build, but not break the bank. I think your boat would look awesome with a sail. Wonder if it would be feasible to do?

Now you have given me another designer to investigateó Dudley Dix. Thanks!

I like this one.

I took my fwd mast off my N46. Too many bridges to clear in FL and the nearest cut was a permanent bridge too low for my mast to clear at high tide.
Worked well until the boat yard decided they could take a jack out before putting in a new jack resulting in the boat tipping off all the jacks on the port side, driving the port active stabilizer into the owner's stateroom. Constructive loss.

Yikes! Was your N46 the one that was repaired and sold a couple of years ago or am I hallucinating again?

And yes, masts and FL bridges really suck!

My boat Dreamweaver fell off the jacks about 5 or 6 years ago.
I understand it was repaired. Didn't know it was sold.
I wish the new owner many happy cruises.

Hey... now... wait a minute here! I resemble that!

Many mid sized boats with fly bridge only have air draft of 11 to 13 feet total. Our Tolly is 12'6".

Steadfast masts are a completely different height proposition.

Hi Eric,

No Sir, not a change. I'm boat obsessed, and I want to experience them all,,, Of course, that's not gonna happen. I'm thinking my mortality awareness kicked in a few days ago.
So many boats, such little time.

Art - You're getting paranoid about your your flybridge. The talk was about FLorida bridges.

Air draft isn't a concern for me. There aren't many bridges to worry about on the ocean. Thats where boats are supposed to be.

Hi,


He noticed an interesting "Trawler" tug vessel, this is for sale. You can also drive it on ice, so the question is really where you want to go.


Now the modifications are done

I donít want to sound mean, but this is not the most aesthetically pleasing boat Iíve ever seen. Seems like a few more windows are in order.
