One heck of a bow wake for a trawler, wonder what it would be worth for parts, easy to see why it has 4,000 lbs of ballast, top heavy.

Damn that's a bad looking rig....I think i peed a little when the photo popped up!!!

Tried to picture myself at the helm if that's what it was....looked more like the crotch of the ugly tug! Sure hope that guy isn't needing to sell it quick. The cut out fishies on the sides up top really added a nice pazaaazzz and reduced some top weight too:)

Not trying to be too harsh- but is that cheap photo image paneling? Interesting that each panel is run a different way - that must have taken some thinking.

The first thought they should have had was why. The second common sense thought would have been no way.

If that boat was a woman and I woke up with my arm under her. I would chew my arm off just to get away, instead of waking her up! lol

Oh, and just for clarification, Bruce Roberts is an Australian Architect, not Canadian, and please note that it's registered, and being sold, in Seattle Washington, not anywhere in Canada. I guess butt ugly can come from both sides of the border!

The owner of that boat approached us about trading it in on one of our 22 Cruisers we carry.

We passed.

There is a reason that sucessful marine architects make good money to design boats.

One of the yacht features is no rear visibility from the helm, "what's behind me, she's not important".

The description said there are twin backup cameras.

There is no need to put the backup monitor in a location visible while operating the vessel, so behind the head seems like an ideal location.

Heck, on my boat I added a forward-facing VHF speaker directly behind the head of the helm operator, to annoy the guests in the cockpit less.

The large paper chart surface is handy too. On my boat I need to use the upper surface of the closed salon door for a large paper chart surface.

Nice tall railings too. That helps keep people from jumping to their death.

It would be GREAT so see mechanical pictures, of the engine room and other mechanics.

Just by looking at the photo gallery, just a couple of thoughts.

From the apparent top-heavy appearance of the superstructure, those extremely large pilothouse windows, the apparent low freeboard for the size of the boat, and from the way the bow appears to be pushing through the water in photo#3, I don't think I would want to be on this boat in any sort of large swell. I would be afraid that the boat would take a nose dive and would not come back up!!!!!

I have to agree that the comment about this thing being more of a design for a motorhome rather than a yacht, is most appropriate.

To each their own. However, this thing is definitely not for me.

When you carefully look at some of the photos, you realize that this monstrosity was actually someone's dream. Considerable money was spent on interior woodwork an detailing. At $150,000.00 asking price, the owner is probably getting about 10 cents on the dollar IF he can unload this puppy.

It's a sad ending to a dream. And trust me, it is not the ONLY one!

1989 2650...an ongoing restoration...but I'm totally clueless...It just happened to be running the day this photo was taken.
Isn't owning a boat always an ongoing restoration?

If this was my dream, the helm would look amazing. An old wood chair, budget shoulder check TV's! :-)
