just as in houses.. just because you can build one.. doesn't mean that you should!
Looks sort of like some of the Jay Benford designs.. nice wheel on the front of the pilothouse!

Been traveling of late, and passed this one on I-24 yesterday. Didn't want to follow the driver like a stalker. Might make a good play boat, or tender for someone. Can't tell how it's powered. Didn't see a prop, so maybe jet powered? Anyway, enjoy.

Hmmmm. The hull kind of looks like a home heating oil tank turned on its side.

Definitely an "Interesting Boat"! I would imagine this to be an excellent platform for someone who wants to single-hand the Great Loop in a slow and methodical fashion.

At first glance I thought Ocean Star was odd and silly like fake stacks but w an ounce of objectivity and looking at the listing I see it as bad/odd styling. Sure has an odd engine laying on it's side and it looks quite old.

Made of steel and w all those smooth and apparently fair curves one could assume that the Star is no backyard cobbled together affair.

Look top heavy? She does not have nice lines but proportionally she's not that different than the W36. If she has ballast she'd be more stable than a lot of trawlers on this forum. As to the tall wheelhouse I wouldn't want it for myself any more than the W36.

She's just not blessed w nice lines. How often do we praise the lines of boats? Very important are the lines. Ocean Star has awkward and chubby lines but could be a good boat. The lines are so bad it's even hard to say she's cute. Didn't read the YW thing carefully ... she could have stabilizers and lots of ballast ect. But the lines ......

Went back and looked again. With a 13' beam she is a huge boat for a 32' length especially cabin wise. Good to maximize accommodations for 32' of moorage space.

Animal says "Definitely an "Interesting Boat"! I would imagine this to be an excellent platform for someone who wants to single-hand the Great Loop in a slow and methodical fashion". She's faster than my Willy. Like TAD says length is golden.

Now that is different. It has a nice cockpit to hang out in, a crow's nest, and even a spiral staircase in 32'.
It's unique, I like it. The forward cabin workspace is a fine idea.

Yeah I think the sideways engine idea might cause a few oil leaks.😁

Just funky enough to like .But almost too funky . It is beamy . Might not be a bad ride for the loop . I like the forward cockpit steering .I good hardtop over the cockpit would be cooler than canvas .

This one is on our dock . It's a 40 ft home built steel with wood superstructure . The sister ship which is also on our dock is a 50 footer . Both were built buy two brothers in the 70's. The first was the 40 ft . The 40ft has a single Leman and the the 50 ft has a Detroit . Much easier on the eyes than the rest of the houseboats at our marina .

I think that's a Kady Krogen whaleback early prototype.

Yup .... Didn't't look at that one very good. I think Perkins did make horizontal cylinder engines back in the 60s or/and 70s.

You guys can laugh your butts off all you want but I like it. Wife thinks it's cute and that's half the battle

Sideways engine and all

What do you think FlyWright, will this one make it into the Not So Secret Cove? And more importantly, is this one less likely to have you doing impromptu MOB drills?
