Well, I think it would be easy enough to add a short pulpit to hold a proper anchor, aka Rocna. Assuming I could find a pre-China model. The one on our boat is too big.

RTF, thanks for posting the photo of the forward cabin of this boat. Who'd a' thunk that much luxury could fit in such a small space. I'll have to find out who the designer was. I bet it was Philip Rhodes.....

Looks like a Great Harbor GH47. Very roomy but getting on and off the boat seems like it would be a challenge. They are built in Florida.

They look top heavy but the manufacturer claims they are unsinkable. They also look like they have a deep draft but it is only 3 feet. They are normally powered by twin 75HP Yanmars. A lot of nice features for an ICW boat. The main complaint is they are susceptible to windage. I have taken a hard look at the GH37 but still scratching my head on how to get on and off the boat.

1976 55 (ft.) Richardson Aluminum Motor Yacht for sale in ON. | ID 146551
Richardson motoryachts are/were very conventionally styled typical boats of the day. Their construction, of round bottom planked aluminum, was pretty unconventional and required huge man-hours. They couldn't compete with fiberglass.

The boat in the link has a far more interesting history. She is a Phil Bolger design (excluding the horrible tophouse addition), originally built in Iceland in the mid 1960's and named Thorfinn. Her drawings appear in the first edition of Voyaging Under Power. Originally she was 46'7" long, speed was 18.5 knots, and she was used as a fast cruiser with sport fishing ability. She was shipped to the US to be exhibited at the Miami Boatshow, and during unloading in Norfolk a sling broke. She fell 40', struck her side on the edge of the dock, and landed in the water upside down. She righted almost instantly (again without the upper house). She was declared a constructive loss.

I guess someone bought her, had Richardson do a rebuild-extension, and she's been cruising ever since.

I have no idea what powers it, although I suspect it's probably a gas engine unless this is a current reproduction of an older style boat, in which case it could be a little diesel.
She's a William Hand design from 1908, built by Doug Hylan in Maine in 2001. You can find her on the New Construction page as "Tug". D. N. Hylan & Associates | Brooklin, Maine | Building and Restoring Classic Wooden Boats Originally she had a gas engine, then my friend Don bought her and installed a little Volvo diesel, maybe 25 HP? Headroom under the foredeck is not 4', there is no room down there. I keep trying to get him to build a decent pilothouse on the boat, it may happen.

I was thinking Phil Bolger had a design along those lines. Quite a departure from his later years "box boats". It must have been in VUP that I saw it.

Here is a better one I found. I switched the wheel between the two shots my wife does not like the spoke wheel. The destroyer gives better access to the instrument controls especially the wind shield wipers behind the wheel. The helm seat is a double and there is a copilot seat to port with a large flat area for a full chart. the co pilot area has a second independent nav station so my wife can follow chart plotter and radar or use a VHF and AIS on her own.
