Wow wow wow! Long-cours62! That is an amazing looking thing!! Love it. Best execution aesthetically of this configuration I've seen by far. I'd love to do the design work of a civilian version!! Get in touch if you'd like to collaborate.

Seriously!

But I have some reserve on some "details"
For example the "flat" front part on the arm between central hull and lateral hull and the bow on the first one , may be more efficient or more "design" but not usefull for anchor and probably very good for get a heavy "spray" on the wheelhouse but with some change it could be interesting in the range of 21/22 m length overall.
Enough volume for a couple, good average speed, low consumption and possibility to run little quicker than a "classic" passagemaker with same amount of hp.

If I had a spare $2.5 Million I'd probably go for this boat. Its not pretty, but I love the functionality and global cruising abilities:

FPB 64 Offshore Motor Vessel, BC, Canada US$ 2,495,000

Because we can't understand a such price !!
2.495.000 us$ around 2.270.000 !?

For example our boat (similar size, material and possibilities) was for sale at 350.000.
Our boat is absolutely not so equipped and lot of more rustic than FPB 64.
But if we invest ,say, 350.000 in her we got new arrangements, Naad stabilisations, gen set ,aircon, more electronique etc ...
It means for 30% of the cost of the FPB 64' you got a boat with same quality arrangements, some news equipment, engines with less hour, same strength, same ability ...but (always a "but " ) old "fashion" .
Yes but old fashion and 1.570.000 still in your pocket

We really don't know why they are so expensives ?

I'm always interested to hear the thought and engineering that goes into boats like these, but I have zero desire to own one.

The whole Great Room concept strikes me as in complete opposition to long range cruising. At night, you need a dark pilot house, but because the pilot house, salon, and galley are one in the same, that means it's lights out everywhere except the staterooms. That doesn't feel very accommodating to a crew on a long voyage.

Also, the long and thin approach comes at the expense of interior space. It seems tight in the pictures, and everyone I know who has been on one says there is very little space considering it's a 64 (or whatever length).

To put it in off road vehicle parlance. For the same reason folks buy Hummer's and Suburban's, to look tough. For off road capability I can take a Toyota Tacoma 4x4 and have similar off road capability and much more utility at roughly 30-40% of the price.

For the wheelhouse . It is exactly what we feell we our motor sailor built in Vietnam, "deck saloon with Inside steering position" it is not fonctionel.
Because when you come from outside in hurry you put water everywhere in the saloon and it is not very usefull to going out and in quickly.
In this case you must cross saloon walk aft, going out .
We prefer clearly one wheelhouse with direct exit to the deck on each side .
And also we don't understand a wheelhouse without possibility to looking aft.

And it even has a Mom's Attic on top of the salon.

Maybe that's why they are selling after only three years.

Another new long-thin design announced. I like it, wish I could afford it.



A 5,000 NM range at 14 knots, ice class hull strength, rescue craft-like capsize resistance and recovery, 20kW solar array, hyper efficient heating cooling/ventilation, and the most comfortable ocean crossing ride make the FPB 130


a natural evolution from the four FPB designs that have preceded her. Engineered and built for maximum reliability and minimum maintenance, the FPB 130 reduces crew requirement while expanding where, when, and how comfortably you can go. The same sea kindly efficient hull form, attention to detail, and systems engineering that have made the FPB marque the talk of the waterfront, sets the bar even higher in this latest FPB offering.

If I am interpreting this right your dislike for such boats comes down to the boat cottage ratio concept. the 64 is not enough of a cottage for your satisfaction. This of course is a mainstream modern trend in cruising boats where more boats are getting increased freeboard, beam and multiple decks. This 64 is bucking that market trend. A good boat does not have to be a cottage unless the cottage is what defines a good boat for the owner. My take on the situation is that the newer generation of cruising skippers and their mates want home like comfort and rather not be constantly reminded they are on a boat. They want a kitchen not a galley. They want a bathroom not a head. They want a bedroom not a bunk. They want an ice maker and air conditioning and not an Ice box. This trend aside, a good boat is still a good boat even if it may fall short as a cottage and many of the cottage features work against a craft being a good boat. A craft that has good boat performance characteristics but is well endowed with cottage features could be a better boat but the market is not pushing that way and the next model of that boat will probably be fatter higher and heavier and that will please most new owners.

eyshulman,
Reading your words is especially interesting as your Devlin 48 may be the closest thing on TF to these FPB boats.

58 Fan thanks for all the nice pics.

How often are we going to see the same picture of the same boat?

And what is with that mother's attic? Didn't U Haul invent that like 50 years ago?

Hyper-Efficient Long Range Cruiser

I just noticed via Facebook that Artnautica has launched the second boat in their series - and I really like it. I think it remains to be proven in terms of its sea keeping abilities - but the efficiency and speed is something that I'm very interested in.

This is the first one after the prototype - what do you guys think of it now that it has a finished interior (which the prototype didn't from what I could see).


Boat #1 - Prototype:



Boat #2 - Finished Construction

UGH!

Having to crawl across the bunk to the foot of the bed might be good for an O nite guest , but not for me.

Where does the guest sleep underway? , even skinny boats have lots of motion forward.

Umm an 1999 80' boat for $750k sounds like a good price for someone.

I would love to see how this boat does in moderate seas, 8 to 12 ft, 25 knots wind.

Seems it would just plow thru the waves like a submarine.
