    steps in boats suck. you do not want to be going up and down them repeatedly especially when underway. Think of your poor wife trying to walk up those stairs carrying a plate of appetizers up to you and your drunk buddies on the back deck. with three staterooms this boat is supposedly set up for entertaining. Usually that means time in the galley. Why would you want to spend it below deck without even a window to look out. For a retirement boat do you really need to go that fast? I know you need to have money to afford this. Even the richest guy I know with a boat bitches about his fuel bill. I did a quick google and found this in similar length. https://www.boats.com/boats/outer-re...case%20listing Name:  66 yacht.jpg

    I think it as lot more functional. This shit is out of my league but I enjoy looking at them and have not ruled out a more affordable version in my future.

    I can imagine exactly what my drunk buddies would be yelling.

    And then I can imagine exactly the level of amusement my poor wife would have delivering hors d'oeuvres in that situation. God forbid up and down stairs from a windowless $3.1M galley while the inmates prod Cap't Ron to juice it another 2 knots.

    Most importantly, beyond all that, I can imagine at that exact moment I'd be wondering why I was even there, who these drunk morons really are, why this woman is even waiting on me, and if she's going to cut me in my sleep for doing so, why I paid so much money to be in this exact predicament, and really, why, God why, did I ever let them sell the Benetau 505 so I could just leave all these morons dockside on the setting horizon behind me where they'd be more comfortable?

    Every boat's a compromise. That galley-down configuration is pretty typical for an express boat. That boat isn't really optimized to be a liveaboard. If I was going to live on a boat I'd want something more like this Nordhavn. Name:  open.jpg

    Family friend has a Nordhavn 72. Spent some time on it. Itís more boat than what Iíd want to manage (if in position to afford) but what a vessel. Heís got a rich navy hull but the lighter brighter blue one is the shit. A dealership in Anacortes WA has a big daddy in light blue on dry dock after list damage/complete loss on maiden launch. At least thatís what I was told. Hate to be that guy

    The fuck happened? It was down in that corner from the start. Was there any followup published that you saw?

    Nordhavn and Northern Marine are two completely different boat builders. The Northern Marine builds are off the old Delta Marine molds (after Delta quit building anything under 120ft except for the occasional super 58 seiner)

    Canít remember exactly but, after falling into a you tube hole of watching ship launch fails I found some comments from the guy who was some type of manager at that yard.

    He claimed the design wasnít right from the start and the yard wouldnít listen to him.... or the owner wouldnít listen to him.. they pushed the project too fast and things werenít done right...

    They fired him... then he got the last laugh when that happened

    tl;dr

    Aft port was 8000 pounds heavier than aft starboard due to a transcription error on the part of New World, the builder. Additionally, New World claimed 25 LT of ballast added, but only 16.6 LT of ballast was actually added. In 2011 New World bought the boat frame, which was originally built in 2002, and royally fucked it up. I'm sure the guy they sold it to thought he was getting a deal. New World is now in receiver"ship".

    Upon launch the forward dolly was 2 feet off center, likely because the boat was so crunked weight wise, that if they put it on centre the boat would have fallen off the dolly on dry land.


    I'm sure that'll buff right out.

    I was surprised there were 3 or 4 workers inside. Didn't seem like much concern in the vid other than a couple of oh shits

    I'm almost certain there is a song about this exact situation.

    Boat had too much tophamper, not enough ballast. Metacentric height too low, righting moment pathetic, esp with slightest list (like what would be produced by a slight breeze on the beam or a full shit tank).

    Architect knew a cakeater boat would never see Force 5 outside of a harbor. Kept snickering and adding weight up high to make it even more unseaworthy, according to wishes of lubberly owner.

    So you're saying that it was prone to highangles.
