Ah yes, the advantages of buying a boat you can single handed or 1 1/2people.

Almost a unicorn IMHO.
Only two sleeping cabins which for that size boat is...well...

No watch berth that I saw, either?

Otherwise a sweet, sweet vessel.

Captain would be sleeping on the couch in the saloon.

Yeah but the purchase price is the cheap part. It's the maintenance and repairs that bite ya on a big boat.

Matsumoto built one-off 1953 Monk

This is a beautiful boat if the bright work doesn't kill you. It was repowered in 2009 with new Perkins M 135s and over 80% replanked last year. She should last a long time.

[QUOTE=O C Diver;933530]That has to be the worst ad for a boat I have ever seen and heard! Somebody's kid playing a piano with one finger while you visually tour a narrow hulled boat with a wide angle lens. Can they make it feel any more claustrophobic? What's with the 1960's decor and square cornered furniture? I can't think of a better way to dissuade people from buying a catamaran. That boat screams dock queen or sunset cruiser.

Either this is "tongue in cheek " or the worst "sour grapes" response I have ever seen.

Those engines are packed in TIGHT.
With all the bright work in the head, I would hope, it is a dry head with separate shower.
Based upon the pictures, it is a boat I can appreciate but, sure am glad I dont own it and have to take care of the bright work.

Greetings,
Re: Post #9405. Philippine "mahogany" is NOT the best for boat construction. It is a softer species and more prone to rot.

Old Dan, that extra 1/2 person would sure come in handy for getting to the outboard sides of the engines, or other tight spaces!

I love the curve of the canvas on the Monk.
HaHa ... and the rest of her.

Quite a contrast to the last boat ... full of function but ugly chunky lines.

Hey, it's a BRITISH boat, why'd they put the steering station on the wrong side?!?

So I keep hearing but reality for us is different.
Bigger boat overall costs less.

AND a engineer in the ER.

I cheated, I checked the internet.
