    Would this "high speed" inland waterway ferry qualify for being called UGLY ?!!!

    In the "trailer boat" class of yachts (seriously!) or possibly a new yachting sector called Dorys with Deckhouses, here's a new contribution to this thread...

    This ‘boat on wheels’ is definitely not seaworthy, but looks great at The Louwman Museum at The Hague (NL)

    More Museum info:
    The Turin bodywork manufacturer Coriasco built this striking Fiat 1100-based vehicle in the 1950s to make publicity for a sailing school in Bologna, the Scuola Nautica Scarani. Coriasco applied all sorts of nautical details to the car, such as portholes, lifebuoys and a varnished wooden deck; the mudguards represent the water and waves.

    As early as the 1920s Coriasco was building coachwork for Fiat, Ceirano and Itala. The firm then concentrated predominantly on light lorries and delivery vans. In the 1970s they reverted to passenger cars, among which a station-wagon version of the Fiat 127.

    Came across this while deleting batches of old news items. This may have been previously posted, but just in case I present the 70' DynaCraft, the waterborne equivalent to the Triumph TR7... the shape of things to come? :eek:

    This is a painful Broward to look at. It started life as "I Lorraine" before that abomination up top was welded on...

    Not all rogues are old. This new 95' Sunseeker looks like a collage of bad design elements...

    Pic two is the Acadia 85 that was supposed to set the world on fire a few yrs. ago with "new technology" It has 5 or 6 kw worth of photovoltaic cells in the coach top and can run all systems from inverters except of course the air conditioning. The entire salon and wheel house overheads are glass photo cells. Difficult to cool the boat so the builder has a U.S. specification that calls for a chiller in the 200,000 BTU range. The barge that the 85 will have to tow behind it carrying the needed batteries for AC is optional...

    I'm not completely opposed to change, such as the cab-forward designs of late but IMO, ISA has taken this too far...
