It is a strange looking beast.

Obviously someone designed and built her for their own personal tastes, with little consideration for resell.

Looks practical/interesting except lacking a walk-around deck. Unusual having three helms. Seems inexpensive considering one also gets a truck and trailer with the boat.

Well now, that's certainly a vessel built with no apologies. I think that boat turned out exactly the way it was intended. It's a very interesting boat, but my Admiral did remark about how the galley sink was smaller than the head sink. The rig to haul it is a nice touch and one that I would have added myself if I lived in ID.

Greetings,
How the heck do you get to the foredeck in any sort of seaway (bad weather)? Better wear a survival suit trying.

It sure is an interesting boat, lots of features shown in the pics probably more inside. It looks like remote Hydraulic couplers at the aft helm I wonder what for, maybe the crane? And how about the two windlasses on the foredeck?
It does have narrow walk arounds and hand rails on the cabin top like lots of sportfishermen do for acess to the foredeck, not fun in bad weather. If one fits through the hatch that could be used too.
I'd sure like to have a tour of this one.

If one were to buy it with the intention of moving it away from Lake Pend Orielle, ID, how would you take it apart to get it down to a height to travel along the highways and byways? 14' is the max height on most freeways and I don't see a convenient place to disassemble that flybridge. It would iikely have to come on its own trailer

Just got email back, this is what he said:

The engines are Deutz 36hp, and the genset is a 10kw Deutz with 34hrs. Boat is 35'7" long,10'11" beam, draftof 4'. Weighs about 38,000#.The hull is aluminum, and called a tri-keel trawler. It can be in low water when the tide goes out, and will sit safely on the keels. Has a cowling around the props to protect them, as well as to improve the effeciency of the engines. It cruises at 6-7 knots, top at 8-9 knots. Very effecient.
Galley- double cook top-one elec./one propane, micro, covection oven, large ref/freez. trash compactor,2 freezers under galley floor, washer/dryer, 10 gal. HW heater, corian counters,seperate bar sink with filter. All cabinets and interior finnish is teak. Very nice condition.
Electronics- ICOM VHF radio, ICOM SSB radio,Furuno W RD 30/ repeater chart plot, Furuno Radar, Yoeman Chart plot, Comnav Auto Pilot, Furano Depth sounder, Wesmar Debpt sounder, TV/DVD, Sterio/CD, (full manuals for all).
Has Kinnamatics hydralicall operated reel Vetus anchor windless,plus elec. back-up windless, with Delta 45# plow anchor / 100'of 3/8" high tensile chain, and 300' of 7/16" cable. plus a second complete anchor setup. Batteries are Rolls deep cycle, 860 anp hrs,.
boat has sea chest in and out- no through hulls. Has a fuel polishing system, oil change system and Racor fuel filters. Three helms- in pilot house, on flybridge, in cockpit. Fair amount of storage. Has a stabilizing sail, Crane to lift dingy to bridge.
Boat is designed to haul on its own trailer- with under 14' height, and less than 11' wide so it doesn't need special permits. Everything on the flybridge comes down to less that 14' for transport.
As you can see, it is really well equipped.
If you like, call Tim 208-610-5605

I want to know where you can haul 11' load and not pull a permit? Here anything over 8'6'' needs papers. Technically, my Albin 27 should move under permit only.

You definitely need a permit, but he probably means you don't need escorts. At least in SC you don't. $100 a year here.

"Sea Dove" is an inappropriate name for a boat that... er... ummm... unconventional. It should rightfully be called "My Way".

Interesting vessel. Would be good if one lived far from the sea, but near good lakes that were not interconnected…or liked to vary cruising grounds but too time poor to travel long distances - hey…that's me…and why we had trailer yachts when living in NZ. However, even with its own truck and special trailer, I doubt I'd enjoy taking it over those Taupo hills, like we did the Gazelle.

That is pretty close to where I live although I keep my Nordic Tug in Anacortes. I would think Lake Pend Oreille would get pretty boring after a while esp. given the lack of marinas you could get into.

Seems like one would need a CDL to haul it too.

Bill - I live in Las Vegas but lived in Fiji for over 20 years on a 42"
' steel trawler. Hope in the future to be back on a trawler. Just thought this was a interesting boat.

The reason you get a truck and trailer is so you can tow it to the tip.
Cut it off at deck level and start again would be my recommendation.
As the old boat builder said "if it looks good then it most probably is"
That doesn't fill the bill.
Cheers
Benn
