I've watched that boat for years. If I was single I would own it. 😁

Interesting , but a 2 LW with only a small sail area don't think you would be going very far very often.
Not a bad looking boat all the same.

I posted these shots, which I did not take, back in 2010. Just came across them again in one of my computers and thought I'd put them up in "Interesting Boats."

My original post was called "Before Grand Banks there was......".

American Marine built a relatively small number of these wood, 34-1/2-foot boats in their original (Kowloon, Hong Kong) yard in the very early 1960s. While they have nothing design-wise in common with the company's Grand Banks line of boats that came from the same yard later, they very possibly may have started American Marine thinking about the future for this sort of cruiser. Single engine, displacement boats, American Marine called the line "Chantyman." There are a few of them here in the PNW.

The same shipwrights who built the Chantyman boats would have built the wood Grand Banks boats that came from the Kowloon yard starting in 1966.

Rather nice looking boat, I think. Designed by Hugh Angleman & Charles
Davies.

There is one here in Port Townsend.. old guy that owns it is 94.. no doubt it will be up for sale in the next few years..
He purchased it about five years ago and he and a couple other old guys of the same vintage took off on a voyage to see a fellow they all served with in WW2 that lives pretty far North on Vancouver Island.
It was quite the adventure as none of them had any real boating experience in the last 50 years or so. The entire adventure was straight out of a Hollywood movie.. if I recall one ended up in the hospital for something relatively serious.
I believe that boat has been tied up to his private dock and hasn't moved in a few years.

Pity all the accommodation is divided up into tiny little areas, exactly the opposite of the modern sedan 'open plan ' boat layout.

Marin I like that "Chantyman" and remember it from the past. The Chanty looks to be rather light and tall. Light and low would be much preferable. I much prefer your GB though both in looks and probable capabilities. Cute is a big part of the Chanty's essence whereas the GBs has a rather serious "sea boat" look about them.

I see they are two different boats. One has my favorite kind of FB and I wonder if that was a standard part of the design. Of course they all may have been close to a one off boat.

Marin, the Chantyman is indeed a very nice, or maybe better "cute" looking vessel. Thanks for sharing!

Here's a new vessel from the Netherlands, interesting in my opinion. The Korvet 14 CLR was just nominated for the European Powerboat of the Year award.
I would trade one engine for some proper handholds
Here's a short video-clip: http://youtu.be/HvTAnDGLZbg.

Nice looking boat, love the ally construction.

But 20kts with 20tons and twin 190 hp.......wow!
My guess would be twin 500hp at least.

Yes Peter, 20 knots seem to be a bit optimistic Elsewhere I've read about a max-speed of 16 kts.

Another line of boats by the mind behind the "Korvet": Bruijs Coasters
Willem Nieland is well known in Europe, the "Pilot"-series and the "Kuster"-cruisers are probably his most popular designs.

Lovely boats: never seen these before.

So far as I know the Chantyman was a production boat. I don't know how many were made. There is a short video on YouTube of one being launched with a ship's crane in Seattle on delivery complete with a precipitous drop that did some minor damage. The flying bridge really isn't one but is simply a pair of side panels on top of the aft cabin tying into the back of the pilothouse. Nice idea and design, though.

Here's the link to the video.

Roughly 36 boats were built between 1961 and 63.

Also, draft is 11-14' so I guess that cuts out going to the Bahamas.

It would be a pretty cool conversion yacht too - really nice and stable in significant seas (though not in really heavy seas I suspect) - and lots of space if you built out a cabin on that rear deck area. Sort of like a slightly smaller SilverCloud superyacht.



But those huge engines really kill that prospect. Plus - poor shallow water performance with all the draft, and if you ever need to work on the engine it seems like you may need to put the boat up in dry dock (though perhaps you can climb down into the SWATH hull tunnel-like enclosures... not a pleasant working environment though...

What do others think?

The sea slice was designed to be a test hull for a stable small high endurance warship platform at sea. I bet the WWII British on Corvettes and DEs would have loved these for ASW. Probably beat out by these:

Look at the wake in pic #2 Art. VERY FAST.

Don't think he'd survive long in bigger waves.
