I don't think those 12 cylinder Italian guys are all that big.

Hey CarDude, since you like Bruce Roberts designs, how about this one? 2006 Roberts Long Range Cruiser 650 Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

It was up on the Chesapeake for years doing nothing but floating and finally sold. Apparently the guy that bought it has it back up on the market again. Good question is why? From what I know, it's a stable boat. It has protected TRAC stabilizers (kind of like bilge keeps / roll chocks, etc. It also has protected running gear as well.

Holy smokes. That’s a ship!

Love that engine room for sure.

I guess the main thing on steel boats like this (non mass produced) is to make sure the builder was competent?

This one has been for sale forever it seems. The interior is a little “funky”’with that bed in the salon, no?

I think I saw it on the hard somewhere near the Ortona lock.

Here is a guy at Galati yacht sales who says the second helm chair is for a Nagavator...

I'm not sure it he meant what he said or was simply dyslexic.

Whole video:


or where he was when he went off the rails

This looks interesting. Note reference to "pilot boat hull" and the boat having been imported from Guernsey UK. Muscular looking boat in some pics, would make a nice trawler, except the saloon is tiny for boat size. Mattress on the forward berth looks to have taken a hammering.https://yachthub.com/list/boats-for-...sherman/211240

I like her.

In video she rides proud on top of the water... probably shown at WOT.

Didn't notice fuel use stats at just below hull speed, cruise or WOT??

NBs - How cute!


No matter how technologically advanced... Nearly all weapon types of yesteryear are now outmoded by AI controlled drones. The world of combat has forever changed.
