I feel bad mocking this one because the workmanship actually looks quite good, but between the Beta 38 with two stainless steel Porsche mufflerscharming beadboard interior accented with Sonoran Mesquite, and the staggering $270,000 price tag it's a definite candidate. Plus, judging by the transom immersion, it's floating a solid 1-2 feet below the design waterline, which is scary.

Who thought it was a good idea to put a steam locomotive cab on top of a boat hull?

Well, I'm not sure I should admit this but that boat was built by my long time former neighbor, yep, B. Lewis.  As a fellow sometime mocker I am getting a kick out of all your comments but I will come

Ain't that the truth.  If he would have just humbly and simply said "i adopted and built on this method and built a few boats, lived simply and escaped the rat race all my life, it works for me"  he c

Looks like a "Spray" hull with a much taller rig, which is a bad idea, and much bigger cabin trunk added, which is not necessarily a good idea although it's necessary if you want more than crawling headroom. The locomotive cab is definitely a ?WTF? maybe he put in a steam whistle along with the 2 Porsche mufflers... why 2? Why Porsche?

Kinda cool but seriously nuts.

That is a very tall rig for a motorsailer.  I kinda like the interior.  And she looks to be very well built.  But that's such a personal design, inside and out, that he's going to have a tough time finding a buyer. At least until he drops the price substantially.

(not sure why the mock about the Beta 38 diesel tho?)

Purely for the two stainless steel Porsche mufflers attached to said engine. Otherwise Beta's a great choice - I've got a Beta 25 which just purrs, although admittedly I went for a more traditional muffler solution.

Built with love, skill and a lot of dollars,  thus making it another in a long line of boating/life tragedies.  The only thing missing was an understanding of boat design and the consequences of modifications.....

Standard work year is 1950 hours (37.5/week) so that is actually 10 years of full time work.

Self Quote Alert

And he wants $270,000 for this well constructed 31-foot pile of aluminum. Let's look at few other options. I looked on Yachtworld for motorsailers, 30-33 feet for $50-270K. The most expensive is a 2017 Jeanneau Sun Fast 3200 for $156K, or a few Nauticat 33's for $110 to 150K, but in Europe. Or a 2000 32' Tayana Vancouver in CA for $104K.

But, hey, get the aluminum baby for $270K!

That looks like it's intended for doing the bottom of those big boats with 10 & 12 foot blade keels.

Can strap in and fully recline for sanding & painting instead of rigging all that scaffolding.

I’m not sure we ever built a steam locomotive as late as 1952.  

That said, I truly believe no builder of locomotives would ever, knowingly, allow one of their products to be aboard this “craft.”

That’s for cleaning the bottom by keelhauling the crew member who muffed up the takedown at the leeward mark, thus losing first place on the last race of the last day!

I am hoping the finish on the port side is an attemp at Dazzle Camouflage.  It do look like she’s seen better days, even considering her somewhat homely looks.  The tiedown going through the port hole is really unique

Am I the only one thinking that the down payment was the ONLY payment that the seller was expecting to collect and the "tell the locals your boat sitting for three months" was just to put as much distance between this slowly disintegrating piece of rubble and themselves as possible before anyone wised up?

No, I was thinking anyone who signs over a boat after a "deposit" probably owes the marina a bunch of money. Which the new owner now owes...

"1968 Sutton steel schooner. 75' LOA. 62' Length on Deck. Built at Sutton yard in Tarpon Springs by George Sutton who also designed her. Has sailed transatlantic many times plus numerous trips to the Caribbean. Draft only 5.5' full keel, attached rudder. Main & fore mast (steel) abt. 63'(gets under most ICW bridges) Power is 150 hp Isuzu 6BD1, also has Koler 12 kw generator, Standard 600 gpd water maker, 2 AC's , 4 burner SS stove/oven.
Lay out is 4 cabins, large aft cabin with ensuite head, tub and shower. Next forward is a large eat in galley with a L shaped dining area and table. Next forward is the main salon with a L shaped settee to port and another settee to starboard, also a navigation area to port. Forward of this area is a private stateroom with double berth, sink and closet space. Next forward are 2 heads with showers. Forward of the showers are 2 double cabins with bunk beds arranged one over the other, each having a sink also. Next is a collision bulkhead. Forward of the bulkhead is a workshop, with chain locker. (Was paid crew sleeping area at one time). Tankage is 1800 gallons diesel, 600 gallons water. Refrigerator and freezer in place.(Grunert). Present owner has spent over $100K on this vessel, but sadly needs about that more spent on her. This is a MAJOR restoration project. Interior is mostly African mahogany. If you have the time and money to restore this once fine vessel please contact me, no dreamers please!! Hull is 5/16" Corten steel in poor condition. Engine and generator may have fresh water intrusion. Transmission is twin disc 506 with a 2:1 reduction, turning a 28" prop on a 2" ss shaft. Sails are included and are set-up on Hood ProFurls. (behind the mast on Main and Fore) also has 150% Genoa and loose footed staysail. May be viewed @ Pensacola Marine Complex, name is Lady Patricia. 
This boat is a major project!!"

This rust bucket?  You need a dreamer with a steel yard to take this on.

If the seller is noting that the hull is in poor condition, there may be only molecules of steel thickness left, sort of holding the water out of the boat!

clearly the cabinetry and surface treatments indicate a part time job at Home Depot.  Once the shelves are stocked (front and faced I hope), the sails cannot be hoisted.

You're just jealous because at least 6-fingered guys got a cool sword out of it.

But honestly, if you were looking at a boat like this, would you fucking BUY it? If you were selling a boat like this, wouldn't you try and NOT take photos of huge flakes of rust... or maybe those are the good parts.... oy vey!! And the buyer was planning to making a 2nd payment!!!! Sometimes I just can't believe people....

Wood can be replaced, fiberglass (GRP and its many variants)  can be rebuilt, but cement?  Flaky cement?  Maybe a steel boat can be essentially rebuilt but if the rust was too deep, the pitting too bad, I would never trust it. But cement with likely rusty, corroded, weak rebar as a backbone.  

I would rather put my money and life in a old, worn out plastic cooler than the boat with the issues pictured. (And I won’t do that)

My very first flight instructor explained it this way.  It is better to be on the ground, wishing you were up flying than to be up flying and wishing you were on the ground.

To paraphrase, it is better to be onshore, wishing you were sailing, than on a sinking rusty hulk, miles from shore, wishing you were on that shore.

You just don't understand steel boat construction. They're relatively easy to repair and the repair is as strong as the original construction.

Ferro, OTOH - no. Once salt water has gotten to the steel armature, pretty much game over. I'd not have a ferro hull unless it was loaded with goodies and essentially free. Maybe not even then.

Though I have thought of buying a decent sized one, trucking it home & sinking it into a pit in the ground. Instant spare accommodation and - bonus - where I live, as long as I pay the annual registration fee, local government can go piss up a rope, there's nothing they can do about it.

Though I must admit, I've not seen too many stainless steel boats.  Now I have!  

Glad that's nearby - I need a quantity of crumpled and painted S/S.

The bow fell off and the rest is buried in a dirty grave.

This boat is a major project!!"

This rust bucket?  You need a dreamer with a steel yard to take this on.

If the seller is noting that the hull is in poor condition, there may be only molecules of steel thickness left, sort of holding the water out of the boat!

(Second close look at this and I think it may be a repeat.   Its shocking some of my ganglia into remembrance)

Liveaboard ready, just move on w/ your crazy hippy momma...

Maybe even a ramp to get the radio flyer from the hard to the deck w/ momma.  Hopefully a chair rigged to lower her into the bowels of the ship.

 

That just brought a tear to my eye. Such caring.

That's what the main halyard is for isn't it?

Especially once the offsite cockpit is added.

Offsite?

Either a typo or literary genius. 

A+

Neither - straight from the ad. Well, he misspelled the name so I guess typo fits.

I have a cockpit for it.
In Gordonhead.

Gordon Head is a neighbourhood in Victoria.
