      We found a sweet one in Seattle last February.. it was 91 feet long. To get the bloody thing from Seattle to here in Juneau, the fuel alone would have cost us $58,000.00 and thats ONE WAY.. could sleep 12 and the galley could fit in my livingroom and kitchen here alone

          would be a nice upgrade! If one has the money this would be a great family boat.

          You are lucky that you have sound financial reasons against buying that boat. My wife found her dream boat and I only had the lame excuse that it's to big for our tow vehicle. Her next sentence was: then upgrade the vehicle too...... Let's see whether I can drag it out till next season.

            There have been some nice boats coming out of Kodiak for sale lately.. would be nice to upgrade.. but with the fuel prices here.. it would be a docked house on the floats..lol

                  44 footitus is one thing----having the millions to spend is something entirely different.

                    Good point on the gas cost.

                    OP, just have the captain show your wife what it cost to fill 'er up. LOL She'll be glad you got the smaller vessel.

                      No kidding, a guy shows up in a brand new 60' Marquis last weekend on his way up from the Keys (Florida) where he purchased it on his way to Newfoundland. He said he fills up daily at $2600 a shot and I figure he must have been traveling for close to 3 weeks plus. Heck my boat did not cost that much.

                        That is so far outta my league that I cannot even contemplate owning something like that.

                        I may as well set my sights on Barbados, buying Barbados

                          I don't get why everyone is worried about how much it costs in gas - just throw a few solar panels on there and you're good to go, right??

                          Oh wait - I almost forgot - need to add a genny to the engine room...

                            I can't speak to the 70 footer.

                            But I have read about many large 40 to 50 foot trawlers. The fuel milage of those is in the range of 1 to 2 MPG. They do not plane, they move at hull speed. But they can be very thrifty with fuel. They use a small diesel geared to slowly turn a big prop. Some of these trawlers will have a single diesel less than 250HP pushing 50 footers with a single screw.

                              there is just two people on this boat . they had to turn around one mile from the marina and back up the river because there is not enough room to turn at the docks. they then docked from outside the wheelhouse with remotes and cameras . wow it was impressive. nice people as well as he came to the dock and helped me tie up today. you can see them docking in this picture.
