Can You Guess the Boat ?

One made, so far.
ALL sails furl (singlehanders, you got to love that).
Diesel-electric hybrid.

And if that isn't enough information, check the wind speed and heading against boat speed. Not many cruising cats can pull off those numbers under sail alone, no aux.

Re: Can you guess the boat?

Geez, that didn't take very long. And I was considering posting another instruments picture showing 21 kts, but Aussiesuede made that a moot point. Congratulations, you are up on the high performance cats on the market. I know stating that ALL sails furl was going to keep folks from guessing Gunboat.

Re: Can you guess the boat?

^^^ Well it was a bit of an unfair guess on my part since I developed an interest in it when I happened upon it in Croatia earlier in the year. She's a beauty, and Richard has done a fantastic job with her.

Re: Can you guess the boat?

Not unfair at all, you just happened to experience the future of cruising cats in person and it appears it left a lasting impression. I wish I could of seen it, can you share your impressions of "Number One"?

Re: Can you guess the boat?

It is currently for sale, around $530K US dollars. It is combining great ideas and designs like the SMG 50 that will usher in a new level of cruising speed, comfort, and ease of sail handling. Also, as the electric drives become a bit more refined, the regenerative potential will make all electric galleys on the hook and on batteries (nice and quiet) a possible alternative to propane. I'm going to at least start using a induction hot plate. I've seen a few built in.

I'm afraid my observations are rather cursory in nature. I noticed the A-frame and it drew my curiosity. I'd read about the design before, but had never seen one in person. I did not tour the vessel, but was given a bit of info about her origins and owner from a fella working aboard. The rest of what I learned was from perusing online - so nothing of any particular import I'm afraid.

Re: Can you guess the boat?

Asking 5 in todays market?

Maybee get her for 3 or 4 ?

Would pay for herself real quick.

as George would say;

I'm a modern man. A man for the millenium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multicultural postmodern deconstructionist, politically, anatomically, and ecologically incorrect. I've been uplinked and downloaded, I've been inputted and outsourced. I know the upside of downsizing I know the downside of upgrading. I'm a high tech lo-life. A cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, bi-coastal multitasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond. I'm new wave but I'm old school and my inner child is outward bound. I'm a hotwired, heatseaking, warmhearted cool customer, voice activated and biodegradable. I interface with my database and my database is in cyberspace, so I'm interactive, I'm hyperactive, and from time to time I'm radioactive. Behind the eight ball, ahead of the curve, riding the wave, dodging the bullet, and pushing the envelope. I'm on point, on task, on message, and off drugs. I got no need for coke and speed. I got no urge to binge and purge. I'm in the moment, on the edge, over the top, but under the radar. A high concept, low profile, medium range ballistic missionary. A streetwise smartbomb. A top-gun bottom feeder. I wear power ties; I tell power lies; I take power naps; I take victory laps. I'm a totally ongoing bigfoot, slamdunk rain maker with a pro-active outreach, a raging workaholic, a working rage-a-holic, out of rehab and in denial. I got a personal trainer, a personal shopper, a personal assistant, and a personal angenda. You can't shut me up, you can't dumb me down, cause I'm tireless and I'm wireless. I'm an alpha-male on beta-blockers. I'm a non-believer and an overacheiver, laid-back but fashion foward, up front, down home, low rent, high mantinence, supersize, long lasting, high definition, fast acting, oven ready, and built to last. I'm a hands on, footloose, knee-jerk headcase, prematurely postraumatic, and I have a love child who sends me hate mail. But I'm feeling; I'm caring; I'm healing; I'm sharing; a supportive, bonding, nurturing, primary caregiver. My output is down, but my income is up. I take a short position on the long bond and my revenue stream has its own cash flow. I read junk-mail; I eat junk food; I buy junk bonds; I watch trash sports. I'm gender specific, captial intensive, user friendly, and lactose intolerant. I like rough sex; I like tough love; I use the f-word in my email, and the software on my hard drive is hardcore; no soft porn. I bought a microwave at a minimall; I bought a minivan at a megastore. I eat fast food in the slow lane. I'm toll free, bite size, ready to wear, and I come in all sizes; a fully equipped, factory authorized, hospital tested, clinically proven, scientifically formulated medical miracle. I've been pre-washed, pre-cooked, pre-heated, pre-screened, pre-approved, pre-packaged, post-dated, freeze-dried, double wrapped, vacuum packed, and I have an unlimited broadband capacity. I'm a rude dude but I'm the real deal, lean and mean, cocked, locked, and ready to rock; rough, tough, and hard to bluff. I take it slow; I go with the flow; I ride with the tide; I got glide in my stride; driving and moving, sailing and spinning, jiving and grooving, wailing and winning. I don't snooze, so I don't lose. I keep the pedal to the metal and the rubber on the road. I party hardy and lunchtime is crunchtime. I'm hanging in, there ain't no doubt, and I'm hanging tough, over and out.


Cutting edge lady in cutting edge world.

Anyone want to go splittsies?

Im in for a hundred.

Well at least allow me to enjoy vicariously through your "in-person" sighting and talking with a member of the crew, getting that close to a cat of my herb altered dreams. I have wondered for decades why progression in design of cruising cats have been so slow, then realized that boats have to be built for what the customer wants, and until recently, folks wanted what was considered "normal/same" as all the other offerings. If this small company sees the sales potential of breaking the commonly accepted mold, there could (I hope) be many SMGs in the future.

Re: Can you guess the boat?

If I could get her for $300K, it would be a done deal. I just happen to be very comfortable with electric drive, I have a bit of a history in electric drives.

Re: Can you guess the boat?

At 300K you would not be the only bidder.

I have been following the Aframe threads for a while but not prepared to experiment myself. This one is not an experiment and at that price.
