It is indeed a beautiful boat. I have no doubt of its seaworthiness. Alas, it is a wooden hull. If it were fiberglass, it would make a perfect boat. If i were a still hull, I think there would be a line of folks wanting to buy it.

Per the price, it's about right. 10K per foot, without the wiggle or desperation room.

I talked Fred, the owner, into giving me a tour. What an impressive boat!

Fred,
I give up, how could you not like it?
IF it looks like the pictures, that's a might fine looking boat.
Call us when you buy it. We would all like to come visit you and tour your boat.

Yup, I agree, looks fantastic. Alas, it is a wooden hull. I am told, some yards refuse to lift a wooden hull boat.

Ballast? That would be a typo. Displacement would sound correct.

As far as preferring a single - normally so would I BUT in this case the tiny twins open the interior completely and give you so much usable space. To keep the cabin height low and still give well over 6 feet of headroom, the engines are not under the raised pilothouse. Instead they are under the seating in the saloon. If you look at the interior shot, looking aft, on the right side of the photo (port) the lounge seat is a few inches wider at the near end. Port engine is under there. Starboard engine is under the dinette seat. If you didn't know, you wouldn't guess. A single engine would give you a big centrally mounted engine box to climb around, a much higher pilothouse or some kind of nontraditional (read 'wierd') cockpit located engine.

Nope! In my opinion, after seeing her, a single wouldn't do it. In this case the twins are a definite asset.

OOPS, that should be $100K per foot.

Greg .. no he means ballast.
You are talking about Czarnnia aren't you?
It states 12900lbs ballast in the specs. That's WAY over half the weight of my boat that is wider and has about the same WLL. It's probably a typo ... 1290lbs ballast? My smaller Willard has 4000lbs ballast but 12900lbs is unthinkable. IMO

Your comments on the twin engines is excellent IMO.

A case of having way too much money and wanting to impress the neighbors.
Don't forget to add in the cost of a crew.

That's why the boat I am planning to build is flat bottomed extremely low draft boat with no rocker. Say good bye to the tide and spend time on the beach.

I have never ridden a wave piercing boat.
Low tide, you can clean the bottom of your own boat.
For the price they are asking, it might be worthwhile to investigate shipping it to the US.
It did mention the 'legs and engines' recently overhauled. I wonder if there is some structural design problems with the "legs" or was it just a traditional bottom job.

Love the bit in the video at 2.26 with the water oil splashing around in the hull under the green things .That alone would put me off

WHY have trawlers not considered jet drives? Not to go 200 mph but, a leisurely speed of 10 or 15 knots.

Video of it piercing some waves would have been more interesting, preferably without soundtrack.

Id say because my 330 Cummins IG32 with prop dose around 9 knots at 1500rpm 10 liters a hour and a jet drive would be more like 2000rpm @ 25 liters per hour

Old wooden derelicts maybe, but not a modern cold molded boat. Tougher than most glass boats.
