Not many boats on our forum have detacoupled hull to deck joints.

Awesome vessel indeed! Unapologetic ground tackle. I'd salute that boat as it went by.

It even has a gas tank for fueling the tender, and the boat deck has chocks for a Boston whaler tender. It is a packed mini-ship for sure.

Bigger Nordhavn's have that too, the 72 I went on had a 90 gallon tank with a nozzle hose and all.

I didn't like the gate valves, but they meet ABYC codes. I think the two directors chairs put off a lot of people but it's built like a tank and has really low hours for its age. The tender gas system has a small transfer pump and nozzle so all you need to do is pull up the tender to the swim platform and refuel. I'm tall and it had a few head knockers for me, but all in all, it was over built with just about everything you could want on a cruiser / liveaboard boat.

Of course we will need a monthly maintenance fee for repairs and updates-- $1000 each should do it. 😳

Totally! That one you pictured is Zeeapard. We saw him a bunch of times this last trip we did to the Bahamas. What a beautiful boat!

I don't know what it might cost to maintain such a vessel, but I guess if I were really rich, that's the kind of cruising I might enjoy.

Fun fact, Zeepaard was formerly known as Axantha. The second pic is of Axantha II, which is just a bigger, fancier version of Zeepaard

A 1940 oyster lugger that prowls Lake Ponchartrain. The pictures don't do it justice.

Here's one off Google images that I couldn't resist. No PhotoShop on my part, mid engined, heal-keel. Interesting but probably be dangerous to park this around Oliver.

"Interesting boats" are getting more interesting, so here is a famous Sydney ferry, now "operating" as a restaurant and function center in Darling Harbour Sydney.
The "South Steyne" was built in 1938 at Leith in Scotland, is 224 ft long, and has steam engines built by Harland & Woolf in Belfast Ireland. She steamed to Australia via the Suez canal. During operational days as a ferry she ran between Sydney and Manly inside the harbour, but did offshore day trips to Broken Bay, and to follow the Sydney Hobart race fleet.
She was recently offered for sale, I`m unaware if she sold, like many boating enthusiasts I would like to see her operating as she was intended, rather than a static exhibit.

That is a treasure however it is preserved. There are a number of photos worth seeing on Google Images:
