Hard to tell from the photo but one would hope the windows are thick and deeply bedded like those on Slowgoesit’s passagemaker.

She may may circumnavigated but so have thousands of other boats. Because it did once does not mean she will again with another owner -- he may have chosen his weather windows very carefully.

I doubt "thousands" of pleasure power boats have circumnavigated.

Wonderful use of "weather windows" though.....

I too doubt that thousands of pleasure "power boats" have circumnavigated. However, thousands of pleasure boats have.

There were five circumnavigating power boats that went through the Suez the year we did, three Nordhavn and two converted trawlers, to my knowledge
It is however as you say, easy enough to circumnavigate in fairly benign weather the whole way. We never had a gale at sea during ours. Way more frisky weather crossing the Tasman or NZ to the islands on other trips.
Still this boat has done it, and more than likely could again, at a very attractive price point.

Interesting and nicely done conversion

Surprised how far the throttles are from the wheel. But loved the rest.

Anyone know the ol' 117' woodie - Deanna?? SF Bay Area. Photo in the SF Delta.

Photos come up straight when I click on em. Can't seem to get but about 30% of my photos to initially come out straight on my posts??!!

Deanna often pumps out a lot of water... water stream is on port side in the 1st photo - i.e., of her rear.

This ol' baby would have been a cool conversion. Believe she's past her prime now.

Last mention on Wiki page: "Fir was purchased by The Lighthouse Project LLC, a Virginia group dedicated to the restoration and repurposing of aids to navigation, in spring 2017. Restoration has commenced."

As 2017 is now 4 years back, where she rests is often used as a graveyard and not conducive to ship refurbishment/rebuilding... as well as general dishevelment of her exterior-hull and topsides... I'd say she's approaching the end of the line for boat-life.

Of course he chose his wx carefully....What mariner doesn't?...Its part of voyage planning.

"all it takes is the right wave and swoosh".....Boat with large windows or small portholes irrelevant....
