Nordhavn 56 Motorsailor
There are some things that I wonder about.
1. The layout below decks seems strange. Especially the galley/dinette area.
2. The shaft is very long.
3. Engine is in the bilge.
4. Batteries are a long way from the alternator.

There were a few other things that I thought were "oddities". Don't remember what they were now.

Nordhavn build boats that I like but I wonder how this one will shake out. It seems very strong and seaworthy. Early sailing experience seems positive.

I always have enjoyed my Cooper 416. Once I learned how the offset prop worked around the dock it was a easy sail.Most comfortable boat I have ever owned.Stan Huntingford design built in Canada by Mr Cooper.Big and Beamy goes fast.

I had a client quite interested in the Nordhaven MS but he came to the conclusion that it was not right for him. He had me draw up this design.

As always Bob, a very interesting design. Looking at the rig and underbody, she certainly looks as if she will perform much better under sail than the Nordhaven. I love the end-boom sheeting forward of the companionway, but wondered if there was any reason you chose to go with a bridle, rather than a traveller for the mainsheet tackle.

Wow Bob! Beautiful design. BTW, if your 3D renderings get any better, you might just render a 3D world cruise, and save the trouble of ever actually building the boat! Just watch out for 3D pirates!

Bob,

49'8" long range motor sailer, soup or stew? I love it. Please do us a favor and send interior and deck layout. Line drawings would be nice, don't think I could loft it off of them.

Even though I had met Niles.

Love my Gulf 32

Have to join in to add a voice of appreciation for the Gulf 32 by Bill Garden. She's a pilothouse by name, though I don't care about the semantic debate. Our 1988 is Aeolus. What I do care about is how much my family loves to sail and travel aboard her and how friendly she is to us along the way. One of my goals is to meet Bill some day and shake his hand.

I have a blog at Stories of Aeolus- Our Gulf 32 Pilothouse where I've been documenting boat projects of all sorts and trip descriptions. Only family and boat geeks trying to fix something would care.

Live on San Juan Island and so get to sail year round and frequently. We get all over the San Juans and Gulf Islands all the time, and just love the versatility of our Gulf. I know they are not fancy or big or super fast, but unless there is some 45 footer trying hard, we keep up with anything else out on the water under sail, and because she is so damn sea kindly, are willing to go out in snotty conditions that others rightly shun.

Anyway, I love seeing nice pilothouse boats come through Friday Harbor. Just this weekend, a great 1988 Gulf 32 named Garfield IV out of Bellingham came through, and her owners have gone around Vancouver Island and will be taking her up to Alaska this summer. A really nice and well traveled Gulf. Also a well maintained Saturna 33 called Omega came through and she was just in beautiful shape.

Nice thread, and hi to all the other "pilothouse" folks out there.

Here is the layout and the lines for you. And yes, they are my intellectual property so please respect that.
The rendering was done by my friend from CA Rick Beddoe.
The boat did not get built. The price was too high for the client although we did get bids from both US and Chinese yards. He finally bought a used 50' Grand Banks. Broke my heart.

Bob,
Thank you for providing the layout and line drawings. I can see were it would break your heart that she did not get build.

It appears as though she would be easily driven. I love seeing fine lines and not bay plows.

Thank You again.
