Which proves, in my feeble little mind, once you get the hull designed and 'proven', you can put pretty much whatever you want from the rail cap up, within reason.

It's not every day I get to pass somebody! I snapped this the other day on the Hudson. This poor little fella was trying his best, but only making about 4 knots with the current... Anyway, if you don't have a flying bridge, but would like one, just take this approach, and build yourself a treehouse!

The Hudson eh? I think I would like to see that. It looks beautiful in the picture. Nice shot.

Sorry. you are correct.

I am going to look at a Defever 48 next week. It strikes me as one of the only boats that has nearly all significant features in one boat, minus the RPH. Three cabins, two full heads, fly bridge, transom door with great water access, and devilish good looks! I do like the Portuguese RPH, but the ones I am looking at, minus one, all do not have a fly bridge. I like to look around and get some air as long as I have sun protection (bimini, etc).

When that barge is loaded with logs, the operator needs to see over the top of the load.

No log barges on Hudson. That is a construction barge ,and your right, he needs to be able to see over equipment.

Can a Uniflite 36DC be an "Interesting Boat"? Take at look at the interior pictures of this one.

interesting is right!, someone spent a fortune in the interior of that boat.. look really clean... but check out that swim platform.. looks like it took the dock with the boat! I bit out of scale.

WOW - POs were in love with their Uni!

I owned 1973 31' sedan sport fisher Uniflite with flybridge. Nice boat!

Uni's were very well built. Mid 1974 was last time they were constructed with the "correct" ingredients in their gelcoat. After that, due to some sort of U.S. govt regulations, Uniflite altered their gelcoat ingredients. This was due to thousands of 31' Uniflite boat hulls ordered for Delta patrol in Vietnam [same hull design as the 1973 31' Uni I owned].

Long and short of what happened to Uniflite [i.e. what eventually broke their financial back]:

When Uniflite began manufacturing thousands of boats for Vietnam war, using the govt's mandated new gelcoat formula, the Uniflite company began also using the new gelcoat on all their boats... pleasure boats included. Well... unbeknownst to anyone the new gelcoat formula was long term unstable. In that, after a few to several years in the sun it would "bubble", horribly every where the sun hit it! This "bubbling" surface effect was unsightly at least and unrepairable at worst. I've seen Uni's that looked like chicken pox had attacked their gelcoat surfaces.

What happened then was an enormous class action suit by private owners. Owners won, Uniflite went broke!

I carefully looked at all photos and read most words about the Uni you provide link to. Did not notice any bubbles in photos and did not read any mentions of bubbles. Perhaps this Uni was a lucky one that had different gelcoat used than what the govt had mandated. Maybe it had been boat house stored, out of the sun's rays! Belonging to a Uniflite forum for some time I had read that in some cases there were Uni's built using the pre govt gelcoat.

If no bubbles exist - the Uniflite in your link is surely a great classic pleasure craft to own and enjoy!

Happy Uniflite Daze! - Art

Wow that interior really is nice, and according to the broker that 36' boat is now a "mega yacht." Someone decided to lose about $50-100k on that boat.

Hey, I wonder if I can disassemble the interior and just install it in a new-build???

Well, someone must have really loved that boat. I canít tell what the boat actually came with, but thatís a whole lot of woodwork.

Not my style of boat at all, so not interesting from that point of view. But, this boat may be much more than interesting. Healhustler alludes to this.

When I look at the photos of this boat it just screams of the absolute joy that this boat brought to the whoever did this during his tenure with it.

That is really the thing about boats, isn't it? So cool.....

I've been aboard several Uniflite boats. Never seen one all gussied up as that one.

I believe Eric used to work at Uniflite. He may have better input. Maybe Uniflite had a specially appointed custom package??

The Uni shown sure is pretty in all respects!

This 79 footer has a bay for storing a 4X4, a garage for the tender in the stern, and pushes all my buttons. Who knows how many millions, but if I had it I would plunk it down and roam the seven seas in this dream boat.
It turns (at speed) almost on its axis. I can't find anything about it I don't admire so thought you all would enjoy it, too.
