This does indeed look like an interesting boat. I could only get one photo on the slow loading and. I want to see more!


Edit: I found some more on the internet. Definitely interesting.

Benford design?

Very weird boat. I like the fact that you steer facing aft while operating from the forward deck. I bet backing the boat is very interesting chore with the house in the way.

NOT a good looking boat up close IMHO..


The Admiral said it looked like it was designed by a committee of designers with different agendas.


It was just plain strange.

Welcome aboard!

She sure is an interesting vessel! Love the curves.

I would like to see video of the interior of the vessel, it's kind of hard for me to understand the layout with the posted videos.

I think this boat was for sale in Florida a few years ago . I think it’s kinda cool looking.The spiral staircase is different. I would mount some kind of hardtop forward for some shade, like the old Biloxi Luggers.

I really like that website Right Boat - Boats 4 Work but it's maddening when brokers write "POR" Price on Request. That probably turns away 99% of the buyers. Dumb brokers.

Wonder what the stats are on engine, fuel, water, holding, economy/speed... etc?

She does push quite a bow wave in photo. At same time it appears little to no stern wave.

Interior looks nice. Bridge deck is huge. Not too easy ladder access to bridge. Wonder if salon pilot chair locks down to floor for hours of heavy weather/waves?

The saloon takes up the port side walkway, the is access to the upper deck (upper poop) lol from the pilot house via a small set of stairs on the port side. There are doors on both sides of the pilothouse.
She is steel as you can probably see - I was attracted the recessed port holes - some serious weather expected by the designer and the anchors -- OMG she won't be dragging anchor either !!
I spoke the the owner briefly and remarked on the saloon, he said the boat in general incorporated many facits that he liked from several boats.
A sturdy strong room boat
This looks like a vessel that was reviewed in Passagemaker Magazine shortly after completion, quite a number of years ago. The interior was incredible - a lot of mahogany and beautifully done. The bare hull had been sitting in a field for years before it was purchased and built up into a yacht.

Don't know anything about Bahi. She spent the first 12 years in Florida. She is now in Michigan. I have to go get her from the other side of the state. I am going to be using her on the Great lakes.

That would be like some sort of sin .... right?
You can edit only for about an hour or two after posting.
Now that may be a sin.

I was stuck in that Indiantown yard for 7 months while that boat was being repaired and stored there. The Yard Mgr. said the rudder and shaft area was being rebuilt....not sure what happened to it. I always thought the boat was adorable and I may have bought it then if I didn’t have so much trouble with the yard. It must be a rolly thing, but sure has charm. She looks like someone has slapped some paint on it since I last saw it in January, 2015. Good luck with it.

Interesting boats

Covey Island 47. Very odd concave bottom shape, with 2’-4” draft. I wouldn’t venture into the deep end. Handsome boat otherwise.

Oh man...one of my favourite boats of all time designed by skinny water specialist Dave Gerr.

There are places on the BC coast that have never been charted because no 'normal' boats would ever go in there, like in the Estevan Group. Then there are the creeks & rivers you could sneak into and tombolo's to dry on...

There is a 50' Covey Island for sale in Cape Coral and very reasonably priced. The shallow draft and low air draft is intriguing. The lack of headroom, not so much.

Broker should be shot for the lack of pictures on that Covey Island 47.

Somehow the phrase "if it's too good to be true..." comes immediately to mind...

I do like those Gerr designs.
