Awl man! All that boat needs is me to make it perfect. Well, I don’t care for the ladders, but I could get over it. Awesome ship.

The alternative is to only have refrigeration when under way, running the genny, or tied to the marina.

Of course you could add adequate batteries, solar and inverter and have 240v everything.
Our genset very rarely gets used this time of year.

I'd also be wanting to know why the hull was glassed.
Would ring alarm bells with me.

Really sad to see.
Desperate for a new custodian that one.
Being in Tin Can Bay will not be helping find a buyer.

I have seen images of the hull's preparation immediately before glassing: absolutely superb bare-wood condition, including replacing a plank and a full re-caulking job, but with epoxy putty. The current owner spent $40,000 on it, six months or so ago. He simply wanted to reduce maintenance. The great many photos show a perfect hull.

Liv (the Admiral) and I spent a couple of hours on her this afternoon; she is better than the images suggest. Best internal layout we have seen; far and away the best engine room, best accommodation, huge battery capacity, and plenty of room in the engine room to augment if necessary. The wiring is textbook. Three watertight compartments, and a survey-standard engine-driven emergency bilge pump to complement the electric ones.

We go out to sea on her tomorrow. We will report back. Overall, the best boat I have ever personally been on, so far. And am all clear on the 'honeymoon phase', too. We are trying to find faults, but have been unsuccessful, so far.

Is lulu’s the only place where one can find interesting boats? Sometimes I wonder who gains something from all these citations.

Anyone know what brand this is? Saw it a few years ago in Catalina island. Good looking, I'd say.

mahal,
Probably a custom build and not a brand at all.
Also looks very specifically designed as a charter boat.
Nice looking though.

Advert says "SOLD in 4 days!". Congratulations due?

@BruceK: yes, sold. We bought her...

Where is the best place/thread to start a discussion of and show and tell about this boat? I want to show the massive amount of work that was done on the hard, over seven months, before her beautiful hull was glassed. I know that, usually, glassing a hull is a kludge and sometimes done to hide problems, but this does not seem to have been the case this time. I was in error above; 10 planks or parts of planks were replaced, not one.

I had a composite boat awhile back.

Sumner Craft.
Build in Amitivile NY. 1961
Was a cedar strip planked boat fiberglassed inside and out.
Hull started out inverted and planked over formers. Then righted and the forms removed. Then fiberglassed inside.
There seemed to be no issues w the hull but I was still a bit nervous. In the end when we moved to Alaska I sold the Sumercraft.
Was powered by a 120hp Sabre engine and was capable of 20 knots. She was 29’.

Thanks for showing your previous baby. I recall Sumnercraft well. Hadn't seen one in many decades. Nice boats!

I wouldn't have that boat even if they paid me. They let it go down hill. No doubt takes more than 2 people to run it.

My wife and I visited a boat show last year in Florida with the intention of browsing and getting some exercise. No intention of buying anything until we came upon this. We figured it would be fun and it is. Besides, it will make a good fair weather dingy.

Craig Cat catamaran. 30HP Evinrude, 30MPH draws 11 inches.

Greetings,
