Overing Design Noble House
Overing 174 Build
A boat built Down Under turns expedition yacht design updside down.
A glimpse of Noble House, a recently launched 174 foot motor yacht by New Zealand's Sensation shipyard for an American owner, would not lead one to classify the vessel a a member of the explorers' club. Noble House's appearance, however, belies its abilities. The steel-hulled boat, which is fitted with a bulbous bow engineered to reduce fuel consumption... Click for More

Bulb Bow
Bulbous Bow on 93 Aft House Inace Yacht Under Construction
I have recently returned from a visit to INACE YACHTS SHIPYARD to inspect the 93' aft house with her owners. Among the numerous things going on that I thought people would find of interest, is the fitting of the bulbous bow to the boat. A few things to take note of, the hull structure was fully finished and the bulb is being fitted as a separate element. What this means is if the bulb should impact something and the watertight integrity be compromised it will not have any effect on the water tight integrity of the hull. Click for More

Click for More The Art of Long Boarding See the Movie!
No, I am not referring to surfing in Hawaii! The art and science of producing a top quality paint job on a yacht involves many steps. The part that everyone sees is the final, smooth, high gloss finish coat. I do not want to reduce the importance of the challenge of getting this final coat to a yacht level of finish, but it is just a small part of an over all process and one of the shortest sections in terms of time.

Belize and Islands
    When I dream or the Caribbean I picture little sand streets lined with tiny clapboard house painted every color of the rainbow. In my dreams the trades always blow gentle, the locals have big white smiles and warm island accents, the sea is 10,000 shades of blue, and the lobster is grilled under swaying palms on a moonlit beach. From now on when I dream of the Caribbean, I will forever think of Cay Caulker Belize...Click for More

Galapogos Pics!
    The owner of Zembra III was nice enough to share a few photos of his trip to the Galapagos with us. They ran straight from Cabo San Lucas enjoying good weather and a trouble free trip. His basic comment was "It was everything I heard and more"... Click for More

Alaska, Final Chapter!
    We are winding down our summer tour of Alaska as the days start to grow shorter in the land of the midnight sun. Although I will miss the expansive wilderness and the bears, I'm looking forward to warm blue water, big blue Marlin, and little blue bikinis dancing on the sand at a certain little beach cabana in Jaco, Costa Rica. But I'm sure we'll get to that around installment 23 or so... Click for More
