One for the Rogues files...

I've seen a lot of ugly boats in my time, this one takes the cake...



Someone tell me what I'm missing here?

Question

Looks like they tried to jam a 100' design into a 60' hull?

I kinda like it!

Granted that the designer perhaps lacks "restraint," the fact remains that I personally worship at the alter of high freeboard, and this yacht has it in spades. For a 60' boat, I'll bet it's particularly seaworthy, just not very "seeworthy." Sometimes you just can't have it both ways. JMPO

Lose the forward lounge area, extend the house forward a little, lose the hole in the side (big window). Otherwise, I like it.

I love the boat, better than nothing. I appreciate her a lot, but would do modifications in hull mainly at side.

I think the color has a lot to do with it. Repaint it white or black and it probably wouldn't be so...uh...obtrusive.

I liked it ever since I read the review posted on this site. Looks to be a very good use of space. I also find it a very attractive design. Hull seems very interesting also.

Going to read the review again.

To each his/her own, I guess.

Looks like three designs for the price of one.

^also a very nice boat. People confund design made by prestigious names of industry with taste, sometimes either more ugly than those than of every boat garage. I am sure in many ports this world has more ugly boats and ships than those.

It's not just ugly, it's a complete failure.
The (single) re-conditioned engine is placed in the bow so that the stern leaves room for a large master bedroom. The shaft runs from bow to stern. The tinting on the windows is so dark that you can't drive at night. The decks are not glassed to the hull but glued with putty. There's only one bulkhead in this 65' boat. Just a matter of time before it all falls apart.

Well it would make a great houseboat!!!!!!!!!! hehehehe......As long as the marina will allow you to dock it there and you come and go from the boat when your neighbors are not looking or outside.

Interesting concept: She is designed to rest on the sea bottom:

And finally, the special shape of the FER.WEY hull allows the craft to rest on the sea bottom while protecting the propellers from impact damage, and allows owners to access areas that would be a risky proposition for other types of hull.
