Know someone with a 68' boat that was white. He had it painted black. Then he needed to upgrade all 5 air conditioners as they could not keep up with the added heat load. Florida boat no less.

Not my taste, but I respect the refit work. A very swanky city boat.

I'll also say every since I first saw a Hinkley when sailing in Maine I've had a thing for white topsides with dark navy hulls, red bottom paint and a white boot stripe.

It just looks "proper" to my Yankee sensibilities

I almost had the perfect boat. Alas, the hull is British Racing Green, red bottom and white top with a white boot top. Hey, it's a fast trawler so why not British Racing Green. LOL

I really like the interior design work, I might have chosen diffrent colors and patterns but I liked the concept.

I think that boat needs a psychedelic wrap instead of a paint job

It would be interesting to see how long that black Hatteras could cruise along the FL coast before DEA stopped & searched it.

I like it .. . if it was an Airbnb rental in Chicago.

Could be a nice alternative to a hotel, being right on the water and near so much fun stuff to do!

If someone wants to demean the quality of a boat I own or the builder, then I'm ready to fight. If they want to say they don't like the styling or the color or the cabinets or flooring I don't care and doubt that owner would. Those are all items of taste and when you go outside the norms you're fully aware that the majority won't like it.

Agree, but a bright yellow pilothouse roof improves being visible and identifiable. (Have green hull, white superstructure, grey deck, tan front-cabin roof [reduces glare], and yellow pilothouse roof.)

After my mother died, I suddenly had her furniture to get out of her apartment and I had an apartment full so I rented a large house out in the country. Paid little more than I was paying for an apartment. It was also where I was living when we married and we lived there several years. We loved it, but I can only imagine if it had been for sale. It was 3500 sq ft on 8 acres. Wonderful. But the owner was the guy who built it. He apparently had some combination of a love for paneling and a hate for painting. Every room had paneling. Even the living room although it was actually a nice soft white paneling. Even the closets were paneled. I undertook a challenge to find a space not paneled and thought surely the little storage area under the steps. Wrong. Paneled. Even the angled ceiling of it.

The owner kept it because it was still going to be his retirement home when he could move back to NC. It's like a baby only his parents can love, but we developed quite an attachment to it. The paneling was just humorous. The owner had actually done a great job building and took extra care in so many things. It had a well and the one time it was serviced the man who came out said it was the nicest pump and filtering system, and most expensive, he had ever installed. The garage door openers even were super large and heavy duty. The guy just liked paneling.

A lot of times we get initial impressions and react negatively when if we look beyond them we might find ourselves pleasantly surprised. I was just looking for a short term storage place, but instead lived for five years keeping all the furniture and one of me, then two of us in a five bedroom home. It had been six but he'd combined two into an extra large master. I think I paid $1100 a month as he never raised the rent.
