No. I just like to see Nordic tugs and
American Tugs get equal exposure.
Plus, their both fun to look at.

I have been aware of that boat for some time now. Someone sure wanted the biggest dinghy they could fit on that poor upper deck!
It is interesting to see the differences in our boat and that one. Lots of little differences, some in the way the boats were spec'd and some production changes.

Friends have a dingy about the same size on there boat at first I though it was a over kill until we traveled 30km for supply's and return. We were both very comfortable on the return with 200kg provisions

Slipped adjacent to us are two Nordhavn 47s. One with and without fly bridges. One without has a big dinghy up top but still lighter on the topsides I'd betcha.

A lightly used vessel like this, if well tended, represents a real bargain vs buying new.

That is a very lightweight dinghy at 284 lb. The Aluminum hull is the secret to light weight. Note that the crane is only rated to 600 lb, so with 20 hp Yam at 111 lb, 15 gal of gas at 90 lb and assorted other stuff, the load is quite manageable at well under that limit.

As noted by Gaston, having the biggest and driest dinghy possible is a great advantage.
