My first impression was that it was Idlewild, the George Buehler design that cruised the world a number of years back. But a closer inspection reveals that this is a completely different vessel.

I saw them spinning on top of vans, sitting at a red light... The real question is how much air is it pulling through the vent hole?

I would contact them and ask: Flettner Ventilator -*Eco-friendly wind powered roof ventilators

They have marine applications on their website.

I think it was built for the designer who at the time lived on one of the Islands in Maine

WLL? ..... maximum.

I've been drooling over this one since it was posted here. Looks like some lucky SOB is making a move. Sale pending.

When I get bored, I look around at boats. Healhustler knows this and he recently sent me this boat to needle me. If someone really wanted to go places in reasonable comfort and not spend huge money, this seems like a decent candidate. Even though it looks like a sailboat, to me it's more like a powerboat with sails on it. Decent pilothouse. Good room. Good engine. Good outside space (but no outside helm which is kind of strange). It has had a recent rigging refit.

Since I'm sitting here fantasizing, would any of you west coast folks want to help bring her back to the east coast? 😎

Herman and Hellen - A closed/abandoned marina at end of Eight Mile road.

In San Francisco freshwater Delta (City of Stockton territory). Has become bone yard for old working/tourist boats.

Boat on outside of first pict is wood... many locations where rot has left gaping holes in upper hull. Steel boat on inside was decades ago a starring ocean tour attraction. Several CG tugs... etc... also present in close proximity. Sad to see good ol' boats die!!

Cheers! - Art

Vessel in front appears to be a WWII built Miki tug. Wood vessel astern is a former minesweeper, built in the mid 1950s. Inboard of the tug is former USCG Fir, built in 1939 and for sale here: 1939 Research/Adventure Vessel EX-LIGHTHOUSE TENDER, San Francisco Bay Delta California - boats.com

Marty,
That's a propper fish boat to be sure. Even the stove stack is propper and in the propper place. Where is the boat? I would think Fl would be a strange place for such a boat.

"Herman and Helen" yacht harbor was bustling activity decades ago. Activity slowed... Then it closed for a while. Tried to restart operations again some five or six years ago. Didn't last long before it closed down again. Now thw buildings, docks, fuel pumps etc are in fairly bad shape. Doubt it will open-up again.

Here's a long range cruiser that caught my eye. Used Custom Long Range Motor Cruiser for Sale | Boats For Sale | Yachthub
The vendor is reporting a range of 6000 nm.

It appears to be a very well thought out custom built boat.
Main engine is a John Deere 6068, with a Yanmar 3GM backup engine with folding prop in a separate watertight compartment.
Interesting bilge keel design.
