Why not? No different than dozens of other designs out there. Bow and stern thruster, deep keel and a big prop. Piece of cake I would think.

It appears to be a very nice well designed vessel. Check out the builder.

If you read the comments about it on the Interesting Boat thread, one may quickly surmise that TF members have not walked the docks on the exposed Atlantic coasts of Nova Scotia or Newfoundland; where all of the commercial boats and some of the recreational boats have very similar hulls. And there aren't a lot of recreational boats...

Looks like a great deal. Reminds me of the sword boats out of Gloucester, MA.

Most of the comments on the other thread focused on the decor/upholstery and I noticed some interesting "hull art" over that beautiful red gelcoat. To me it "presents" as an "off-brand" alternative to a N46 or the like for 25% less and 5 years newer.

Single with thrusters, long range tankage and setup for long term cruising - what's not to like. Plus it's RED!!!!

I think people get wrapped up in color and decor....not being able to see past that...on an objective view , color aside, the boat stacks up as a good representation of a recreational trawler...

Didn't read the other thread, but, apart from the hideous pilothouse upholstery, the layout of instrumentation is awful. Doesn't look like it was planned at all. The rest of the boat is perfectly nice looking.

Nice, but it would have been too big and 50 percent too expensive for me. Also prefer direct dock access from the pilothouse. (That's the problem of most floating condos.)

Figure the actual waterline is somewhere a little below the top of the bottom paint. Compare the amount of boat below the waterline with the amount above. A LOT of windage. Better have some hp on those thrusters.
Why would you groove the hull? Pretend it's wood?

It would take 2 men and 3 boys to change out all those 8D batteries... also do not like the upholstery. Other than that it looks pretty nice.

I may be a little inclined to agree with this post. I like some things about this boat OK but there is something about the visual proportions combined with the specs that is not quite sitting right with me.
The vessel is 2 feet shorter in length but 1'8" more beam than Libra. I am going to call that similar volume. Draft is over a foot less with Libra weighing 250% more which is likely the steel hull and all of the cement ballast in the keel of Libra
Now check out the above and below waterline proportions of the two in the pics below. Is that OK? No way for me to tell where the weight is distributed and thus where CG might be but it would make me a bit nervous for both handling and stability just looking at it. I am going to guess that Libra has a foot more below the water line and 6 feet less above.
