I'm not sure but I think it is a big, expensive boat.

Unsettling sign of the times... I feel I should share - on this "Interesting Boats" thread.

Today we cruised our Tolly 80 +/- miles; Stockton CA [in SF Delta] to San Rafael [in SF Bay].

Even though it was beautiful weather and even though it was a new national holiday [Juneteenth]... during our very pleasant 8 hour cruise we saw only one [1] other pleasure boat on the water - - - for the entire freaking day!!!

One [1] power boat [other than ours] was to be seen in 80 miles of cruising SF Delta and SF Bay areas, during a beautifully sunny and calm water condition June 20th 2022 day.

That my friends is sadly interesting - and - truly a sign of the times I feel need to share!!

Actually the holiday was Sunday. Many private sector people were working Monday. Also, many people only boat one day of a holiday weekend. Maybe Saturday or Sunday was nicer. Then again, maybe they saw you coming......

Plenty of us didn't get the Monday holiday for this one. Friends in public sector and banking jobs did, but many of us in the private sector didn't. There are certain holidays almost everyone gets, but the rest vary by company and how they fill out their holiday calendar.

Well, yeah... that's true! And, I've got to say... three of us had a most wonderful, wonderful time... simply cruising-along, unencumbered by other pleasure boats all day long!

Being that we started out with two topped off [100 gal each] gas tanks [and that I have a 99% accurate way to tell fuel level in tanks] it will be interesting to see what fuel consumption was. Now that boat is docked just 12 miles away [instead of 100 miles away in the delta] I plan to soon check fuel levels... my foolproof method takes a couple minutes to determine exact level in each tank. Multiplication of 4 gals per inch liquid = gals in tank.

For our cruise: We'd planned to "ride the tide". Currents were in our favor for vast majority of the way. In a slack water slough as we left Stockton dock... I placed our sweet running twins in sync for doing GPS OTG speed at an efficient 7 knots [7.58 is calced hull speed for our Tolly]. From that point on she cruised that speed for very a few minutes and soon began to accelerate OTG by riding the outflow current. 1/2 to over 3/4 way into the trip OTG speed read up to 10.8 knots as we watched boiling wakes flowing off buoy and marker poles we passed. Then, as we got toward end of the straights coming into SF Bay the beginnings of incoming tide eventually slowed our OTG speed to around 6.5 knots. So... all in all - having been almost exactly 9 hours in transit [dock to dock] and I figure averaging 9 +/- GPS OTG knots, would = 81 +/- OTG miles traveled. That's my story - and - I'm sticken with it!!

Belching factories of Chevron fuel giant along the way brought us back to reality of this being 2022; not 1922, of 100 yrs. ago! And, the 700' +/- tanker ship that came up on our stern in the straights entering SF Bay was a wonder to behold as it passed us [I pulled aside to let her by]... she was churning mud in a 45' deep channel!]. Shortly thereafter we encountered what looked like an considerably old survey vessel that was a couple hundred feet long. Privately owned?? That craft slipped in from our stbd side and stayed ahead of us... just before we pulled into the long, narrow and shallow channel that leads into San Rafael canal.

Gotta figure we passed enough marinas to amount to at least a couple thousand [maybe several thousand??] docked boats. Yet... in a full day of cruising there was only our Tolly and one other power pleasure-boat to be seen out on the water. We did see a few small tugs, two small sail boats and a few jet skies; as well as two fast outboard fisher boats and two kayak fishers.

Sign of the times???

Hmm, I was hoping you'd say you passed some natives in dugout canoes. Oh well, I guess it's not 1922 after all.

Good to see Chevron is refining fuel for us. Ha

Sadly, at the Silva Bay Marina docks presently, this one looks pretty rough on the exterior.

not super common/uncommon, but a great Vega:

Eric, I imagine you really like the low HP of the motor?

Seems like a very good price too.

Always thought highly about the Vega. I prefer sans the flybridge, one of most balanced looking vessels ever, rugged & efficient.

One mans dream is another's nightmare

Could find no specs on their website
But on this it says a D3 Volvo for the Genset
And lithium ion batteries - they are the bad ones that catch on fire unlike lifepo4

PowerYacht Mag Global Informative Motor Yacht Page: New Model: Steeler 61 S Electric Trawler

I wonder how insurance will treat them?

From their blurb

Quote:

STEELER YACHTS is proud to introduce the 61S Attétude, the world’s first fully electric and thereby seaworthy prestige motor yacht.
The first?
I don't think so

And the pics sure do look like an ally build, not steel as the brand name implies.

Specs on that page say steel but....

OK, let me clarify "dream yacht": steel or aluminum hull, series hybrid electric power train, ocean crossing, loads of solar on the pilothouse roof, large enough to live aboard comfortably, but small enough that two people can handle it.
