The machinery described left me wanting ER pics too. I can`t believe the ER is such that they can`t put up a pic, my guess is slack brokers selling the sizzle over the steak, rather than boat shortcomings.

Murray-

Really a nice old tug conversion, I am a sucker for tug boats in any format so you caught me with this one. Al

Why I love my old style Perkins, Or, Gardner, Ford Leman, and other slow turning engines!!

ďModern lightweight fast revving electronic engines are fantastic pieces of engineering but they are not appropriate for use in a vessel which may end up in the remotest corners of the world. Any engine which needs specialist knowledge, and probably a technician with a computer, to fix it should be avoided.

Medium speed mechanical engines are still available from a variety of manufacturers. Their size and cost are a drawback but this is far outweighed by their reliability.Ē

Correction noted. Sent you a PM on this rig. Perhaps the terms should have been 'Traditional' rather than conversion.

Okay, now I recall reading- while a new build, the main engine is not available as a new marketed engine. I didn't research where and when on the engine just that is is not any longer available as a new buy.

Certainly a different approach to a coastal cruiser, built for the Bahamahas, but has been up the Inside Passage to Juneau seven times!

THAT is an interesting boat. It's like a cottage! What a house boat should be.

What a great concept and quality execution.

I love it, remind me a bit a "peniche".
ER looks a bit tight for a boat of this size but the interior wow.

Not sure what you mean: the propulsion engine is in the middle of the galley! The genset seems to be under the salon floor. With only 3 feet draft there is probably not much headroom under the main deck.

Well I mean it looks tight on each side of the engine but like you said this must come from the draft, mine is 2 feet 8 inches draft so a bit the same.

Ours is 2'10" draft... still providing plenty of engine compartment room with dual hatches in center of salon sole. It's all in the design!

Being new to this I have a couple of questions on this steel boat, I know itís been around for awhile and I even emailed the broker...Itís really a nice looking boat and has a lot going for it IMO..I would seriously consider it for myself, the thing that confuses me is the view from the pilot house. Of coarse I noticed the giant boom dead center of the pilot house..The wheel and controls are also dead center...Visiblity could have been improved simply by posistioning the wheel far right or left..So question one is ..was this incompetent design, or is sight line not that important in these types of boats..The pilot house sits so far back I looks like it would be difficult to see that far out anyway.
Secondly, could that boom be relocated or removed opening up the view out that center window..Thanks.

I think your prospective would change if you viewed the boat in person

I suspect, the crane was at the request of the owner. He wanted access port and starboard which limited the placement.
