Nice design, but not sure if it would qualify as an oddity. Could you elaborate?

Now I get it. Thanks for the clarification. I guess one man's gold is another mans oddity. I really like that little motorsailor.

With all that reserve buoyancy, its made for lifting something heavy. I don't think those are tanks of any sort. There is cable winch on the top.

The only thing I can guess is that it may be a box core. A box core is something that takes benthic (bottom) samples for research. The large amount of reserve buoyancy would help to break the suction and to lift the weight of the sample out of the water. No idea what it might be otherwise.

Croatia's attempt on the Round the World with 2 x 5 HP outboards - those are the fuel tanks they are pushing, the one in the middle is slivovitz for the crew?
