This just made me laugh!

"This boat would also make a great AiRBnB for someone with some creativity. With a nice piece of raw land, just put in the ground up to its waterline and you have a very unique rental. Mutch less work and no expensive marine equipment."

Clearly a dreamer crushed by boat reality.

Interesting boats

SSP, huh? I spoke to a naval architect who designs SWATHS about a small 50ft design. He said that the total payload would be about 5 tons. That's not enough for fuel, water, payload for a world cruiser. No very practical.

Its not clear why everybody is so negative about this interesting Swath boat, especially considering they said it met all the Navy's expectations. And why "wasted money"? Research on boats is NOT a waste. In fact , if somebody wanted, it could be converted to a good world cruiser. Modern electric / hybrid system, many solar cells, huge battery bank, kite sail....Im sure it could easily go 2k nm.

How about an ocean going trailerable trimaran?
12nm/g sounds pretty good.
There are engine room pictures so lets not have any complaints please.

Have seen that one up in Tin Can Bay
I suspect Bob Oram had something to do with the design, but going on memory from a long time back.

I dont see it as trailerable in the US without a hands full of permits and escorts.

I must say, that is an interesting boat. Thanks for posting. I wish I could spend a couple of weeks on her.

The video said it met the Navy's expectations. In fact, monohull designs have been done before, yet others still do research on them. Attn: USN, please continue to do so.

Was it in Tin Can Bay because they were a little nervous of the Wide Bay Bar?

I really liked Bob's Ciao Bella, if ever there was a cat to get me back into sailing.

Think me and the wife could shorthand her? 24,000 hours on the Cat 343 TA - quite a testament.
