I was on one of these Transworld Fantail at a Seattle boat show maybe 10 years ago, and surprised at the lack of headroom. I'm 6' and I was brushing my hair on top of the saloon. I think it may have been an owner-finished boat.

Still a nice looking vessel though. 6 ft. in the salon....sure doesn't look like it would be necessary. I gotta say though, sometimes I wish I was a 5 ft. contortionist, if ya know what I mean.

Slowpoke you are correct, I was in annapolis a few weeks ago and plans again for this weekend as well. The boat is a 50ft Hyatt fantail that my wife truly enjoy as our second home.

Galatea spent years across the dock from me in Port Townsend, The owner at that time was a commercial pilot that did a decent job of maintenance but she really looks great now in the pics. I used to absolutely hate her dry stack exhaust as she would coat my GB36 with soot every time she was started. There were still Hanna Barbara prints on the walls (originals I think ) at that time. She definitely has a seiner square stern.. when I bought Volunteer she had been in the slip next to Galatea for years and they had very similar sterns.

Is this a fantail stern?

What does a fantail stern do or is it just for looks.

The Wikipedia article stern has some background, though it's a little vague on the various rounded, non-transom configurations.

IMHO a rounded stern that has one (or more) counters that is vertical or slopes inward would not be a "fantail" - I have the impression that this term really applies to a stern where - from on board - the members are clearly visible sloping outwards in a fan shape.

I consider my boat to have a "horseshoe" stern.

Advantages? The rudder post is protected somewhat from cannon fire, which may not be important to you. :-)

In yachts of the size discussed on this forum, the rounded stern would be generally easier to control in a following sea and be more easily driven (less wake, fuel, etc), but it would provide less above and below-decks space, make the use of a swim-step problematic, and provide poorer access when rafted to similar-sized vessels. When I take my boat to the UW Husky football games - or raft at my yacht club's outstations - folks on other vessels just look at my stern and shake their heads. ;-)

I think Fantail Sterns come in degrees.

Squareish w rounded corners aren't "classic" fantails IMO but when viewed below the WL are almost the same as in Hollywood's boat. The old yachts that may have given birth to the expression had smallish sterns. The boats just ahead of the "fantail" were a lot narrower that amidships. Whereas the more modern boats were full basically all the way aft like Hollywood's boat and Scottiedavis's boat. Both aren't true fantails as they lack the basic shape that is very conical .. cone shaped. They achieved the "fantail" shape to a great extent because of their construction. They were made up of a fan/cone shaped assemblage of planks.

So if one assembled a dozen pics of fantail boats they could be arranged according to the degree of fantailness until basically little or no resemblance was found.

Classic Fantail

Seen in this picture, "Portola" has a classic fantail stern. Where the stern hangs over the water is called the counter. If you want to see more photos of Portola here is a link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55428883@N04/sets/72157642644018403/

Knuckle Stern

In this photo, Tonina has a knuckle stern. This design is popular is commercial trawlers and long range, ocean going yachts for their amazing abilities in a following sea. Where a square transom will be pushed by a following sea, the wave will just roll under a stern with this shape; which eliminates (or greatly reduces) the risk of broaching. We have been in amazingly huge following seas on Tonina and are able to just let the autopilot do its thing without any issues. Here is a link to more photos of Tonina as well: https://www.flickr.com/photos/554288...7644913263279/

This was an old thread that someone revived, thank you. As someone who used to live in front of the TV on Saturday mornings in the 50's and 60's this is a great story on a great boat and owner.
I found this and thought it was interesting, note the owners name, the famous cartoonist Tex Avery maybe?
