Cross breeding between a Willard and a Manatee. Much like a mule, me-thinks this is a sterile one-off;

The interior is actually really nice looking. Maybe it's the gigantic blue canvas oxygen tent that's throwing me.

Looks like they made a spare room on the flybridge

Ya know, if I was a single young guy living in San Diego, I could see me on this.

And yes, I know, Manatees have often been the butt of my jokes on this site.

There does not appear to be a lower helm.

Who's going anywhere? It's a house boat!

Besides, I am San Diego! Don't need long pants either.

I am in the Miami/Ft Lauderdale area, please explain the meaning of long pants.

Sadly, the only thing that pricked my attention re this boat is the black pipe "thingy" in the toilet bowl - is it to change the direction of the waste going down the bowl so it can be used in the southern hemisphere.

Apart from that, anyone know what it is? A sprayer so it can be multifunction?

Given the length of the boat and the steel hull, we can discount the 112hp engine. I am betting on the 180.

There is much missing specs missing in the boat's description.
When you look at it, gather up all the information and let us know, please.
It looks like a Gardner 6L3B, about 170 BHP at about 1100 RPM. Have a look on YOUTUBE, there's plenty of footage on there. Gardner's are regarded as the Rolls Royce of diesel engines in the UK. There reliability is legendary, fuel consumption unbeatable. My own Gardner was new in 1970. Gardner's were the engine of choice in the Routemaster Buses, you know the old double decker London buses.

I like KK Manatees and like (most!) Willards. This boat is an insult to both! It would make a good dockside condo.

I agree. It's a great dockside condo!. Amazing use of space on a 30 foot boat.

Sure- it lost its traditional lines, but it certainly is a well designed transformation. I love the way they managed to fit stairs to the flybridge in this application.

That pipe appears to make it impossible to raise the seat which means, the men are in trouble again.

That black pipe is the crank handle on a C-Head composting (actually desicating) toilet. If your going to go the composting head route, I think its much better design than Airhead or others.

Nice touch with the soup can and coffee can on the engine.

Must be some sort of attachment to do bidet duty also. I have seen some, in North Africa, similar idea but just a piece of bent copper waterline with a valve to provide a spray.
There also seems to be a board with a knob in the toilet bowl, maybe to cover the drain, no telling why?
Overall the interior of this boat looks quite nice, looks like documentation numbers at the upper (only?) helm.
