With some of the ugly boats on the "Interesting boats" and the "Worst pilothouse ever", this thread need reviving.

That GB36 would look much better without the flybridge.

Well ... this is my contribution. The least attractive boat I have seen recently. Not that it is ugly, but ... it doesn't fit my nautical aesthetic.

The GB36 would look better without the flying bridge, with a shorter and lower house that was set farther aft, a longer forecabin, a sheerline without the stupid break in it, smaller windows, and a higher bow.

But this would just be polishing a turd, so the better thing to do would be to remove everything higher than the caprail and put a pilothouse Europa house on it.

Marin;The GB36 would look better without the flying bridge, with a shorter and lower house that was set farther aft, a longer forecabin,

It is the big difference that I have noticed between the GB 36' and IG 36' aft cabin models.

The cabin trunk and flybridge of the GB is a long way forward, standing on the foredeck of a GB there's not much room to swing a cat, and the bow does feel quite low compared to the IG.

However that does give the GB extra deck width at the stern, also as I have noted in a previous post the GB's have a roomier walk around deck, this is balanced with less width internally.

The aesthetics of the GB 36 aft cabin are fine.(that's because they look quite like the IG 36, and I like the way my girl looks.

Photo 2 IG aft
Photo 3 GB forward
Photo 4 IG forward( note, this comes as standard equipment on all IG models)

Pretty good basic design. Just needs more blue canvas.

You know, there are 2 production boats that I must confess, I find rather lacking in the "pleasing to the eye" department. I am sure they appeal to some people and I am sure they have various wonderful attributes and they are most likely better than staying home and mowing the yard. However, dollar for dollar, I think there other boats I would buy prior to these 2 models...




And....

Bet those boats are pleasing to most boaters based on the boats I've seen. But as usual, I'm in the minority.

No pictures but I remember one boat I used to see 25 or more years ago in my area called the SNOOP. T'was a steel hulled boat about 45' that looked like a tiny freighter with the long, clear fordeck, a deck crane and a wheelhouse near the stern. Now that I think of it maybe like a smaller North Sea type design. Certainly was not the typical good looking boat of the day but she sure was attractive nonetheless and kept well.

That's an interesting concept. Here's how it worked out.

Hmmm.... Not much of an improvement is it. Getting rid of the mast will help. It doesn't go with the boat anymore. And now the aft cabin is too short so the boat looks truncated. Perhaps moving the rear bulkhead of the main cabin forward to the front of the large main cabin aft window so the aft cabin is longer will help. That wouldn't work in reality though because the engine room takes up all the space below the main cabin.

Of course once one starts shortening the main cabin they might as well go all the way and make a pilothouse boat out of it with a low aft cabin. Don't know where the engines would go but it might look really nice. Sort of a rumrunner look.

The pink paint job doesn't help either.

Very impressive piece of Photoshop work, though.

Attempting to have two bedrooms in a 36-foot boat causes a lot (too much in my opinion) of compromise. The 34-foot-LRC-Californian does a pretty good job with two bedrooms forward if sleeping in a closet/Pullman berth is OK with you.

Sleep two; entertain six: that's my preference for a mid-30-foot boat. And while the Coot can sleep three in the saloon (one settee turns into a double), having five souls aboard for 24/7 is too much to contemplate.

I must say it looks better than I thought it would.

I do agree with Mark that two sleeping cabins are rough on a mid thirties boat. The proportions always seem tight until after 40'.

Well, it all depends on what you bought the boat for. This is our second 'trawler' style boat over 15 years, the first a CHB 34' & now the 36' IG. Both are the aft cabin design, the IG actually manages to get 3 sleeping cabins in the layout, with two bathrooms.The only thing I might change, now the kids are older, on our layout is perhaps move the galley down to where the twin bunk room is, this would open up the main cabin a bit more, then I think she would be perfect.

Over the years we have had so many kids & adults play and stay on board I have lost count,plus a few brain cells along the way.With our style of boating the aft cabin two bathroom set up is terrific. The climate helps, most of our boating time and meals takes place outside.

I agree though, if it is just a couple using the boat the extra cabins are probably unnecessary, however an aft cabin sleeping arrangement is far superior to a forward cabin set up IMHO.
