Black boats are like polyester pants from the disco era. All of a sudden, nobody wants to own the eyesore.

Not my style, but none of it looks to be done on the cheap. Id hate to know the price tag that went with that one. I do like the headliner.

To a beholder, a thing of beauty. As a young fellow growing, up one of these was a often passing joy by our home at near 13 knots with a bone in her teeth. The sound and sight proclaimed it a true "Ship" to a little boy's mind and eyes. Thanks Murray.

Found a Facebook page for HRH Lola and it appears it is/was used for charters.

Nice looking gal in a few of the pics. She might be the owner or the admiral.

Hey Old Dan, just dream of the chicks you could pick up with that boat.

Yea at my age, I could sit on the edge of the berth and tell them how good I used to be.

And here's a bit about the owners and what they do with her.

I recognized Hutchings' name, he and his vessel make a cameo in one of Tony Fleming's videos that I rewatched recently. Starting at 17:30.

Yeah, I would have preferred the OE styling.

I went onboard her sister ship a few months ago, pretty impressive use of space
Nice powerplant, excellent tankage and fuel burn.
Pretty much ticks all of my boxes

You know, 2 or 3 retired couples could sell everything and buy that boat and cruise the world in luxury for not much, if any more, than owning a small 45-50 foot NH or KK. Crew the boat themselves, two hour watches, everyone gets plenty of sleep, and support if anyone gets sick. Lately, I've been getting seriously motion sick. Can't even make a half hour as a passenger in a car.

That boat screams dock queen or sunset cruiser.

If they hire a captain who tells them to "go to their room" when they act like children. Unless you are all brothers from another mother since kindergarten running a ship as a democracy is a recipe for disaster.
