Yeah, I noticed that. With two 50’s, I think it could run quite easily on one. I don’t particularly like the props hanging out there though. No photos of the ER.

Also, lightened photo shows those props are pretty tight inboard, working with one rudder.

Half trawler half motorsailer? Looks more like a trawler with masts to me. Either way a boat like this makes me consider questionable financial decisions.

Beautiful looking boat. The furniture comes with the boat too?

Hmmm, built in the US and currently in Greece? Could bring it back to the US on its own bottom.

Iszis the Willard TooCoys posted?
If I was to go w twins (and I would if I had the money) I’d do it exactly the same way. Engines tight in toward the keel. Vulnerability almost as low as a single. And absolutely no propwalk if they are CR.
Speaking of keels that’s not a Willard keel. Willard keels don’t have the cut-outs. It’s probably a Fales. Looks longer too .. perhaps a 38’?

She seems cheap for what she is. Checkbook open. Oh my.

It’s too bad she would clearly be so demanding. I could happily throw a small fortune away on something that looks that good. Too bad I don’t have one!

Buy a lot of diesel for the money wasted on mast, sails, rigging and winches

Nothing too unusual other than it’s powered by a single Cat 3408. Don’t see many single screw Defevers above, what, 41’ in length?
Nice but far to difficult to board from a tender IMHO.

For a displacement hull boat, it seems kind of silly to have a 900 HP engine.

As I recall, my Nordhavn46 had a 120 HP Lugger, 1000 gallons of fuel and sails. WOT, maybe a tad over 8knts but less than 9knts.

Considering the length and weight, the boat could benefit from a much larger engine. Remember, just because a boat has lots of HP doesn't me the owner MUST use it all, all the time.

I looked and didn’t see a spec for weight/displacement. A FD boat should have 3 to 5hp per ton of displacement. Usually a boat this big would be closer to 3hp. Some have only 2hp per ton. Never seen less than that.

The boat has cleaner lines than my Willard so one would think that 5hp per ton (my W30 has 5) would be a clear abundance of power. I could easily get along w less than 5. But I don’t see and numbers on displacement.
Boats of this size aren’t overpowered like the little boats on TF. If this is it’s the first one I’ve seen.

And re the Fales that TooCoys posted assuming the engines are Perkins they aren’t 50hp. They are 36 in every boat I’ve seen. And most were overpropped so only 33hp was available.

Not so.
FD boats don’t benefit from excessive power. And it would be stupid to put excessive power in this boat. By the way Dan it appears you have seen the displacement of this boat. Care to share?

Her keel was designed for a single prop. I wonder if that used to be a single engine boat or a custom build on a single engine hull but used two engines instead.

This boat is on Australian eBay at the moment - I really like it but out of my price range.

Really like the hull lines, but far too much wasted space above the deck for a private cruising vessel.
