Is yours the Florida boat shown as "Sale Pending" on YW? Looks like you had a motivated seller there, looking at comp asking prices.

Yes it's here http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1982.../United-States
That price was the ask. You don't even want to know.

RE: Supersize me!

Old Stone,
Please no apology! Thanks for the great advise! No I'm not used to the extra 30,000 lbs or twins. I could pick spinach out of your teeth with my 36' single but nearly everything about this beast will be new. Once it gets out of the canal behind the owner's house I plan to practice plenty. Her new name is "Amazing Grace" as all of our boats have been named. The dink is "Amen".

Woodsong,
I thought that was you. I was in Franks condo last week talking about you. Congrats on the exclusive! Actually this boat has the extra tanks which i think puts it up around 1100 gallons but i need to confirm the numbers before I head to Portofino.

RE: Supersize me!

Small world eh?! Yes- the exclusive @ Island Cove will hopefully prove to be a pretty good set up for all parties and I am definitely excited about it.

1,100 gallons? Come swing up to the TN River and pick me up before you head out to Gibraltar!!!

RE: Supersize me!

wow, congrats. sure looks like a sweet boat and Defevers get lots of praise.
i went from no boat to a 38' twin and there is a learning curve for sure.
surprised to near the current doesnt effect handling but that sure is nice, nothing like current to throw you off when berthing.

how does this boat perform? cruise speed? range?

RE: Supersize me!

6 knots? Be sure to report in if you ever cruise at anything less than 8. I know none of the rest of us slow down to 1.0 x Sqrt waterline. Except FF of course.

RE: Supersize me!

50 ft boat , close to 49 on the waterline gives 7K with very low fuel burn and 8K is not much more.SL x 1.15

Cheap burn and speed simply take a long light boat , skinney would help even more , at higher speeds.
