WOW. That Lien Hwa motor sailor sure works for me. Anyone lend me 300 K.
Guess it's still nice to dream. Really seems like a well appointed cruiser and with a little more tankage a good passagemaker.

It's on the wrong side of the continent. That'd be a great cruiser for the BC Alaska coast. I bet the existing tankage gives it a 700+ nm range.

Saw this one at our transient dock today at Shilshole. Did not see the owner to ask about it, but a very pretty, simple boat with a beautiful sheerline.

No doubt, if the Pentagon doesn't take it, we'll see some hi-buck sheik or baron integrate the design in their latest toy. Sorry if that sounds cynical.

If I had the money, instead of SWATH, I'd go SWASH:

I ran across this beautiful red-hulled pilot house trawler at its home dock in Picton, ON, while cruising the Trent Severn earlier this summer.

In asking around, I learned a local high school principal had the hull made and then finished the interior and mechanicals by himself.

What a great job! Doesn't it tug at your heart?

Geeze, I've got a pretty old photo of that boat in the very same slip on my old computer. Looks like he's done an awful lot of work on it. Yeah.....it tugs! It's the kind of boat that tugs on your I-gotta-have-it impulse. If my Admiral had see that boat first, she'd have pestered me about it.

Larry that little red tug stole my wife's heart. May sound funny to some but wish it was not so easy to get her excited about boats.

It seems to me that red is too frequently overlooked as a hull color, but when it works, it works.

-----------------------------

Other than color, I noticed a lot of similarities between this trawler and my American Tug. Raised pilot house with three forward windows, port and starboard doors, false stack, two windows in the salon, rear door into the cockpit, ladder to roof deck etc.

Of course, many other things are much different starting with the steel hull, all wooden sides on the pilot house and salon, vertical pilot house windows etc. The hull looks like it was modeled after a real tug hull.

one big issue with red as a hull color is that a lot of them tend to fade to a sort of pinkish hue.. maybe on the submarine but not on a cute trawler. There seem to be a few red racing sailboats around..

Tied up across from an American Tug and had to laugh; I have a real man's stack with a real exhaust pipe and engine room vent - the American Tug owner climbed up on his roof and opened the top of the stack and took out his garbage and recycling!
