I am curious about ballasting.

I can find out who makes it if you like. It's on the brokerage dock and appears to be a new boat. It also appears to be in commission though so I don't know, maybe it's recently bought. They often hang around the brokerage dock awhile. I've never seen one before and don't know anything about it. Never seen a motorsailor quite like it, usually when they are that "trawlery" (is that a word?) the rig is much smaller. She must have some keel and ballast to handle that boom furling rig. I do like the center cockpit/portugeuse bridge arrangement.

I just checked Yacht world and it is. If I had those two boats in my marina, I would never get anything done, I would just sit and stare.

What a beautiful boat! Need a few more furlers on the bow though! :>)

Love the schooner but then again I love anything aluminium...

I like the fact that it has no booms and also a mast track that looks like it allows you to move the tack of the furlers around the base of the mast to optimize flow?

Re: Check out this Ocean going Machine!

Small world

Silverheels, ex Coaster II, Murrays own schooner, was in our yard a few months back. We refastened the rudder gudgeons for the French couple owners who were taking her to Saint-Martin for shipment to France.

Yup, Nordhavn 56 MS. From the manufacterer-


Another piece of good news relates to the sailing performance of the MS56. We had our second sea trial of hull #1 over the weekend. With engine off and propeller feathered, she attained 8.5 knots while beam reaching in a fresh breeze. I can already imagine a glorious passage to Hawaii from Dana Point doing 200-mile days under sail alone in the wonderful steady trade winds.


Trust Nordy to come up with such a thing!

You must have been here before! No point in taking boat porn pics in the rain though, that would be depressing...

I think the track you are seeing is actually a pinrail. I'll have to get some closer pics, it's an interesting rig.

Re: Check out this Ocean going Machine!

Here's a shot of the Maris Pearl tooling by. She's a converted ex-Navy tug,operated as a SF Bay harbor tug named the Sea Fox for many years. A regular participant in the local tug boat races ( a sight which has to be seen to be believed). That hull has seen a lot of action! There sure are a lot of different ways to cruise...

Re: Check out this Ocean going Machine!

I'ld like to see how far that boat sticks down under the water, at least 10 ft is my guess. One consolation is that if your draft is over 3 or 4 ft. you have to stay in deep water or the channels and you don't really get to be there once you've arrived. I'll race that 80 footer through the bahamas any day.

F-44SC cat.

Isn't that up in Roache Harbor? Think I've putted my dinghy by it a few times.

Re: Check out this Ocean Going Machine!

I'll have to get some better pics of this boat too, she's a real classic beauty. Another motorsailor, but from a different era. Gotta love those woodies, I believe this one's a Monk. Most boats don't photograph well from the waterline, she's pretty amazing in the flesh...
