It's very distinctive head-on...literally.

Unfortunately this is not an ad from a seller, but it's enjoyable nontheless

Project Escape Vehicle + Drugs... WARNING !!!

"In some cases where LSD users are known to have recently watched the movie "Water World", a serious condition may result where the user wades into a wooded section of his property, unearth's the mangled wreckage of a trimaran sailboat hull left there by the property's previous inhabitants, and proceeds to construct an "escape vehicle" by combining the hull with rotten lumber salvaged from the surrounding leaf litter."

The pic looks about like what you'd expect, but I feel this is pretty good ad

Just as I suspected, that tri is being listed by the famous Capt Kirk of the Panhandle. Met this guy years ago and he was telling me how he 'folds' up hulls for cheap. Now I see...

There must be a different definition of "new" that this poster is using to which I am unaware. If you are going to try to take people, at least pull off the old wire terminal stubs and clean the thing up. Sheesh.

Yeah, great, just great for through hull fittings.

Brass - Bronze Gate Valves - $40 (Tacoma)
00b0b_6h1KWDT0ORz_600x450.jpg

condition: like new
All these Gate valves, great for thru-hull fittings. Some never used. Incredibly low price but just don't need. Thinning inventories out, must take all for $40.

Quite likely this has been posted here before, so apologies in advance... Just was sent to me.

Stereo system, LED lighting and a classy stripper pole finish off all the luxury accents of this glorious party boat.

Buy it to impress your friends. Buy it to piss off the neighbors, buy it to make the wife divorce you, just buy the bloody thing.

It does have all the charm of a school bus, but I think that one belongs in Uglyboat Admiration. Twin diesel jets and it looks like everything mechanical must be under that aft deck.

What the designer drew:

... and what got built:

The quest for headroom ruins so many design visions.
Clearly the person that bought the plans ignored the the fact that the design is called "Elver". Everyone knows elves certainly don't need a lot of headroom.

Although the original cabin house suits the design much better, I don't think this version is that bad, perhaps a judicious 2 tone paint scheme could minimize the jarring effect. If it is as well built as the ad says, the price including the trailer isn't too terrible either and even better if you could talk down the price a hundred or two.

Not elves, eels.

el•ver (ˈɛl vər)

n.

a young eel, esp. one migrating up a stream from the ocean.
I have no personal experience, but the rumors that reached my ears said it's a terrible design. Unfortunately, it's cute enough that several (at least) have been built.

Sure, but given it is a 20' cruiser, I like my elf theory better.

I wonder if anyone will buy a boat this ugly.

Other than the paint job, I think you have to give this a pass. It's a commercial boat, configured to economic & regulatory purposes. Beauty does not pay bills or make income.
I beg to differ. There are plenty of commercial boats that have a certain functional beauty about them. I can't imagine any commercial purpose that would require a boat to be that hideous looking, no matter how it was painted.
