Larry,
That is a beautiful idea and yes, I agree, this boat fairly screams "I march to the beat of my own drum" and nothing like a tuna tower to increase this fine craft's functionality.
BTW, I believe this addition, along with what may be his brother's houseboat, we could have the makings of a fine charter fleet....

You know Healhustler, if you put a couple of SeaWhiz mounts on that thing and paint it gray I bet youd could sell it to the Navy in place of those two ridiculous litterol (sp) combat ships they've just spent a bazillion dollars one. Dirt cheap and just as effective.

I think you may have stumbled upon the answer to the puzzle, Marin. Could the incomprehensible angles of this design be for stealth? For sure, with drab paint and a couple of guns, it would fool me.

It reminds me of a maritime version of the F-117 Nighthawk.

This is "The ONE!"

Heesen Yachts has just launched the 213-foot Galactica Star, which features an all-aluminum, fast-displacement hull form with a top speed of 27 knots.
