M - You are of course correct!

Me saying... "have made money on boats before"... does not mean every boat. Such as - I doubt the Tolly we currently have owned for nearly 10 full years already could possiably be $$$ profitable when we sell in about 25 years from now! Although she will then be a really classic collector 66 yr. old boat still in darn good condition. Maybe she'll be worth a fortune! I doubt it!!

If this is not a home built, how to you make a Tier Zero motor like a Gardner legal in the US or the EU? I know a backyard builder can use any engine they want, but I thought actual boatbuilders had restrictions as to the emissions level of their new builds. Used boats are one thing, but can you even import a new build with a Gardner if boats have to meet the emission standards in effect at the time of construction?

Egad...

More money than brains?

Adding 36' amidship to a 170' yacht, including two 4'x6' windows through the bottom of the hull.

Why? If you love the boat, think it's just a bit too small and don't want to wait 3 to 5 years for a new build, why not drop an engineered plug into the middle? An older owner may indeed have a lot more money than time.

Well, there's disconnect #1 since the original boat was 170 feet.

Maybe a business rival had a 200' yacht built...if so, it makes complete sense

Wasn't too many years ago, it was common for an 90-100ft owner to add 20-30 ft to his fiberglass boat. It was faster and less expensive than a new build. Plus there was that ego thing.... my boat is bigger than yours etc.

I do hope, when they added those 4 staterooms, the enlarge the galley and crew quarters too.

If you can afford 170' another 36' is no big deal. It's not like crew or fuel expenses will go up. As for how large someone's boat should be whose business is it but the owners?

Is this not a thread to comment on boats we find interesting?

The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

When I had a 46ft boat, I called it a little bitty boat. Some folks thought it was a big boat.
Now, I have a 34ft boat, I still call it a little bitty boat. Still, some folk think I have a big boat.

IMO, only those with ego problems refer their boat as a yacht. Granted there is a time and a place to call it a 'ship' too. LOL

What makes a boat a yacht? As far as I am concerned, my little plywood knock together, not a straight damn line on the boat, dingy is a yacht.

A "Yacht" is any boat that's fancier than whatever my current boat is.

Speaking of extending boats (and maybe meandering back toward the "interesting boats" topic), when we were in the Canadian Maritimes two seasons ago, the big thing was to split the fishing boats lengthwise and WIDEN them. I saw one undergoing this process but couldn't get close enough (weekend, the yard was closed) to really see how it was done.

I was told it's because the Canadian government was regulating the length of fishing boats, but not the width. Not to disparage another government, but that sounds almost as stupid as something OUR government would do!

I saw an ad for a boat where they said they added six inches to the hull... Not even a foot! Talk about knowing what you want!

People always want a little more than what they got, eh?

(But that sounds kinda painful?)
