Possibly a Transworld Fantail 50?

Is it actually old or just built to look as it is?

When I was a kid, and somebody said "yacht" this is what I thought of. Now, they're all 250-300 feet or more to be called a real "yacht"..

Too big for a Transworld 50.

She's a Trumphy "Houseboat", I believe one of the 1950's era 71 footers, might be called Aurora......

I believe we have a winner!
Trumpy Yacht "Bernadette" in Jekyll Creek at Jekyll Island, Georgia on the ICW 11-09-11 - Southeastern Photography - Troup Nightingale

Talk about an absolutely gorgeous vessel. I am in love. If I ever win the lottery I am going to buy me a nice big classic like this to cruise in. I will probably also only drink gin and tonic while aboard and listen to jazz and classical. Heck. I may have a violinist on staff.

Check out Yacht World. They have listed a 72 foot Trumpy "Houseboat" for $350,000. Nice interior.

AMAZING , we can use Trumphys name , Houseboat , for a fine good looking yacht,

but call a dock queen 3 stories high with an oxygen tent on top , that never leaves the slip a houseboat , and your in for a fight!

In your dreams, Woodsong.

Eric, I would have thought you might be put off by that tacked on stern oxygen tent, as FF calls them. It sort of detracts from the classic lines and beautiful fantail stern, dost thou not think....?

When I said "my next boat" I had no idea how beautiful this boat is.

Notice the anchor crane on the bow. Not half as ugly as most bow pulpits are. And the bow thrusts itself boldly into the world unencumbered by bow rails and other clutter to show how beautiful she is. But modern anchors wouldn't store on deck as well as the old guys.

I don't think the pilothouse windows were original and they are probably better looking than the old ones.

At the faster speed the wake is even as beautiful as the hull and they seem to compliment each other wonderfully.

Peter,
Actually I don't feel the same way about the stern as I do about the rest of the boat. The "tent" isn't really a tent but it makes the stern seem to have a bit too much mass and the hull (at the stern) pinched down to almost nothing dosn't help. I'd like a fuller stern. Max the WLL and that tiny transom actually looks funny .. I think. But if Goldie Hawn wore shoes I didn't like I'd not send her back to change. And if I had this boat I wouldn't change a thing.

Do you think it might be the "Dock Queen and Oxygen Tent" comments that might be the real reason for the fight?

No some how HOUSE BOAT has become a bad name .

The only folks that like the dafynition are up "between the lakes" with monsters that measure 30 ft beam and 100 ft long.

The most amazing thing is they USE their houseboats as boats!!!

Many leave the dock , so the kids can enjoy the sliding chute from rooftop to the water.

Bernadette was hauled out here at Bradford Marine last week. We use a Synchrolift rather than a Travel lift so the yard can haul these wooden beauties with full support along the length of the keel instead of four straps that could cause damage.
I was given a tour by the captain who told me the last refit was over 2 million within the last few years.
