Just so, the Vikings visited the "Trawler" by boat in the US about 1017 years ago, although the continent was not known by that name. Here is a real model for the Viking "Trawler".

Iím well aware of that as I stated or implied. And (also as I said) rounding the house fwd should not interfere w the radar return or even make it less. I suspect the sharp breaks were done for economy of the build. And highly justifiable in view of our extremely expensive military spending.[/QUOTE]

The "square corners" have absolutely nothing with economy,
It is the angles that help create stealth.
The angles make it less economical to build due to stress at the intersections, necessitating more costs in structural design and in carbon varying layouts of fabric and cord.
A round house would return a bigger radar signature.

Our military spends a LOT of money to attempt to kill only the bad guys, not our troops or innocents on the ground.

No matter what arena, it always costs a lot to be #1.

Merry Christmas to all,
HOLLYWOOD

Yes ..... the angles UP. You see all the surfaces project the return up at about 30 degrees where there is nothing or nobody to receive the return. By rounded I mean like the front of an old fishboat or tug. The radar energy will still be reflected up the same amount. No change in reflection.

And making a car body w very squarish lines would be much less time consuming than to make it in the forum of a E type Jaguar.

2006 Seahorse 52, twins might be a downside for Mark, but a very nice boat.

Even I like it.
And I’ve always thought twins were better.

But if Mark was to win this boat in a lottery I’m sure he’d get over the single screw bias.

I thought so too (Aussie pricing), it would need a detailed "gaston" checkover. Only 1300 hours on the John Deeres too. But there is a 2005 Clipper 50 twin Cummins @ 449K, so maybe not a red flag.

A blue hull Seahorse 52 cruises past our house occasionally. It may be docked somewhere further up the creek. My wife drools every time it comes by. Beautiful, but would have to sell the house to move up to something like that. Don't see that happening. 🤔

I stumbled upon this huge trawler during a dock stroll this morning. It's a 60' MetalCraft Marine from '03. Originally listed for $1.495m in 2009, it's now significantly reduced. I'd imagine there's a lot of danger in buying an off-brand trawler. Thoughts?

Looks more in fit and finish like a commercial workboat. I know some here will disagree but I have been on newer workboats with nicer finishes. When I first looked at the hull profile I thought it kinda looked like a Gulf of Mexico oilfield utility boat that had been shortened up. I know from working on steel decks all day that it wouldnít be something I would want to have a long term relationship without substantial upgrades and improvements. But itís got some nice equipment with CPP wheel and hydraulic bow thrust and stabilizers. Got potential but needs an ideas guy to finish it up.

Looks like a 50í boat with a 10í swim platform. It gives the impression that space is utilized very poorly. Agree with Mr McG. The good news is there are a lot of places in the world you could go to with this boat. The bad news is there are a lot of places you canít go to with that draft.

In another year or so, the price will be lower. Not a lot of demand for this kind of boat in the recreational market.

Find out designer's name and credentials. Who/where it was built and to what specs. Get a damn good marine surveyor, marine mechanic and marine mechanic to look at it closely.


Then... If all comes out correctly, you like it and can cut correct deal... go boating!

No mention of stabilizers, running gear, # of water tight compartments, bow and or stern thrusters, generator, water maker. All pictures shot with a wide angle lens (standard practice), ..... so many things not mentioned.....
Based upon the berthing photos, 3 man crew or perhaps 2 guest and a captain?

Best guess, the type of boat where the owner just hangs out and the captain chooses the crew etc.

Forget the ICW and the loop.

I agree, better utilization of interior spaces. (suggest one more stateroom) I think for that kind of money one could get a really nice cabin on a cruise ship and cruise for a couple of years or more without the worry of maintenance or upkeep.

All that being said, I think it is a very nice boat. They did a fantastic job on finishing the interior wood work.

Even though I could but the boat outright, it is just not my kind of boat.
