I think that's been on TF before.

But who needs a self righting boat?

The Elling is a great boat. Don't like the rub rails though. Rope

Self righting boat....

I wonder how well that giant sunroof seals against the water pressure when upside down. .

My boat is also supposed to be able to turn turtle, but I can only imagine all the bones I would break as I fly around the PH while I perform the turtle maneuver.

Marketing BS.

Quite so, but I know that just knowing the Gazelle yacht (sailboat) I once had was definitely self-righting, gave a warm fuzzy feeling when the going got a bit sh*ty way out there. The fact it is self-righting means it is going to take quite a lot to even lay a boat on its beam ends, let alone turn it over. But add in the hull construction, which adds a huge buoyancy reserve, and the thing sounds a bit like the Etap yachts with such a buoyant cored and double layered hull, they are unsinkable even if filled with water.

Nobody could possibly consider buying one of these.....it has got a Green Monster downstairs.

I walked by one in Elburg when I was over in the Netherlands buying mine last Spring. Very Nice up close.

elling the sunroof closes the vacuum seal. does not leak if the seal intact. When I'm looking for a new boat in the autumn, was Elling and Nordig Tug which selector. Elling is strong built and good SD boat that can run over the ocean. I ended up as the NT is more suitable for me, it was really hard to make a decision.

factory and designer have built in the past pilots boats, such a requirement to turn up again. The vessel designed in such a way that it can actually rotate and continue the journey. can not you see the kids would love this

Saw one at a boat show down in San Diego. Very nice, and more spacious interior than I was expecting given the design.

I guess it's nice to know the boat is self righting. In my mind, the issue that is missed, would be that you're probably still in horrific conditions and now dead in the water. Think I'm better off knowing my boat isn't self righting and need to cruise more conservatively.

I wish I could afford an Abrams tank to drive to the boat. Maybe next life.
