New "trawler" in neighborhood...

I got up this morning and as per my usual routine I was out on the deck brushing my teeth checking out whats going on out on the water and checking the weather.... and this new "trawler" passed right in front of the house...

I saw it up closer and thru less fog as I drove to work. I was anchored in front of a buddy of mines home (it isnt his boat, they just chose to stop in front of his place for some reason...)

Maybe its the next trend in trawlers???

Jen and I thought about having a boat like that built, then we thought it'd just be too showy for us. We'll somehow manage in our Owens.

But with 24000 installed HP is she still a trawler? Top speed is about 23 knots, and her range is trawlerish at 6500 miles at 19.5 knots........

more numbers....Fuel capacity 757,000 litres, twin 440HP bow thrusters, 3 960KW generators plus one 440KW generator, potable water 96,000 litres, ballast water 579,000 litres....and a bunch of other stuff...

How close is that to her theoretical hull speed Tad? Me thinks it may be well below considering her waterline length.

Doubt it will fit in a 44-foot berth. What's her speed at 1.5 GPH? ... Three crew for every passenger if filled to capacity. Must have fantastic service. On cruise ships it's typically one crew for every two passengers. ... Betcha it's all the booze you want and at no charge! ... I'm not being sarcastic, but the guests must be treated royally. ... Good for its owner!

I'd have to search around to find a waterline length but I believe her length is about 100 metres or 330'ish?. That's a unity (S/L =1) speed of about 18 knots, and S/L = 1.34(hull speed for many boats) of around 24 knots. Displacement/length ratio affects "hull speed"....now I need a calculator. Technically these things are interesting.......

Erk...just found some numbers, LOA 119m, LWL 118.2m, beam 18.87m, draft 5.15m, and GRT = 5,959 tons. Probably just under 6000 tons for regulatory purposes....

I shared the Welland Canal on Thursday with this 140' baby ... She looks great but the skipper had a helluva time not dragging her ass along the wall as he exited each lock and could not keep her running in a straight line. I don't know if it was a bad skipper or a bad boat but he came close to doing damage several times. Her name is "BREAD" out of Marshall Islands and she is currently up for sale for $12.5 million.

He considered the paint job on his boat to be less than acceptable

Nice to see you remember us.

I read a crazy story concerning that yacht. It seems he wasn't pleased with his paint job and launched a law suit against the owners of awl grip. If I remember, it involved a stupid amount of money, spanned continents and involved lots and lots of lawyers that only a Russian billionaire could afford.
