Dang... at 17 gallons an hour... doing a 240 mile passage will run over $1600 bucks in fuel assuming around $3 a gallon... Guessing the channel will soon be called Mooring Doodle.

Awesome. I'm curious of your ultimate opinion of motor yachting and can't wait to see underway videos.

Damn, Bobby caught this one out of sequence. You have done a amazing job as far as knowledge of a power vessel plus smart and talented to do your own work. I am a retired NFL player who wears your style glasses for sun plus my regular glasses. Just saying..

Its funny. I like the boat but, everything about it is awkward and contrived. From the fact that it has two anchors rigged and ready, on undersized chain, to the "adventurous" dingy setup, this boat has serious limits to its usage. He's getting a new anchor, already replaced the fridge (through the window!) That fuel tank better be big to supply those engines and generators. Not too sure about that bigscreen TV though. Backup camera might be a big help. It hate to operate a vessel wheel without some steering, but if you're really good at handling a boat, this system should work! Big deal about the glasses. I wondered about them. But hey, what do I know. He'll be looking forward to his next sail. That's all I got to say about that.

Hey Bobby when you’re out at sea do you ever do any fishing? I bet you would enjoy some fresh fish.

I'm a long-time sailor myself, but that is one cool boat, and wish you good luck with it. I never will understand why people bother to make negative comments, I suppose it's mainly jealousy...oh well! I like the fact that you keep wearing white sunglasses mainly to annoy the people that don't like them. I have a pair similar to yours only clear and I wear them for the same reason.

Well, it's different, I always thought you were a sailing dude, it's a shame as I know you love sailing, the videos are proof of that, active minds need active transport! Still good luck with your new project.

Dude, people knocking the white sunglasses for real? Tough crowd. Do you explain anywhere why you chose to move from a sailboat to a motor boat?

Bobby that is a fantastic video. At age 72 I have owned lots of boats the biggest being a 42 foot sailboat that I lived on before buying a house. You clearly are intelligent and experienced and it sure is nice to see you share this lifestyle with the public. In my days we simply did not have US-first available to share this info. Instead we attended yacht clubs and listened to people tell us about their experiences. Now we can just visit fellow sailors online. Yikes! Thanks!

Amazing ..... once the rag bagger has enough money for diesel..... they convert to a big power boat,,,, why because you don't sit for days on an angle listing from one side to the other..... you can watch tv without the spray in your face and can actually have a party for 15 or more people on board...a big bed that can hold 3 comfortably.. Bobby sold out ..... welcome to the real world of boating..... now you don't have to scream at the crew to tack, let out the lines and crank on the winches. You will miss having a sail in your vision at all times The cold beer cooler won't be sliding away from you when you wish for a beer.... The sound a sail boat makes is when it goes put put put when the wind leaves you stranded or when you need to dock up,,, So is a sail boat really a motor boat that hides under the sails? ?????

I like the new boat, and the new girl!
I hope you changed out the coax to the radios, there is nothing like a x cross wind docking with twin screws. Very nice boat. I enjoyed the tour, Ed and Lynn sent me over. do you miss flying?

We were looking to buy thst exact boat, but ended up buying another 52 in South Carolina. Even though the engines were JUST rebuilt (100 hours since) we now have to replace the port side engine because of a small crack in the block. Detroit is not looking to pay to remove or reinstall the engine, so there is lots of fighting and lawyers involved currently.

One idea for your stove top burners is not replace with another burner top but get a couple of portable cooktops: Duxtop 1800W Portable Induction Cooktop Countertop Burner, Black 9100MC/BT-M20B or something similar. These are available online.

Hey Bobby, got a question.....I know you and I had a stroke. We both now, thank God, are back to normal, well maybe not totally but my question is this! I was told I can no longer fly single engine or SCUBA dive again. Am I missing something, such as my Doctor may be wrong??? I have watched you fly SE, non pressurized and saw you SCUBA, fess up my Brother and tell me, are you just being ballsy or should I file a flight plan to Cayman Brac for some dive time??? I miss both of these activities a bunch!

Beautiful boat bobby, Hatteras builds an awesome boat you will enjoy it. Where did you get those sun glasses due, I have to get me a few pairs! They look awesome. I am jealous over the bow thrusters. And welcome to the dark side, I have been a power boater since 1969, 20ft boats to 64ft boats here in the Chesapeake bay down the ice and back. Enjoy!

10 to 10.5 knots at 15gph? Yuck. So for your 1300 gallons of fuel you're going less than 900 miles? That's why sailboat.

Maybe look at a 4 zone mini-split AC/Heat Pump. Super efficient.

GREAT CHOICE, Great Change! It will go well for you. Edit: I've always thought your white sunglasses were you branding. To be effective it has to be different and memorable. Check and check. Again, great choice.

Awesome looking boat! Lots of horsepower. Myself, being the engineer that I am would ask if it were more fuel efficient to use one engine at time for reduced speed economy cruising? Maybe the added drag from the rudder would negate any single engine gain. It would be an interesting experiment to run :)

Bobby, I got to ask, did you get a big inheritance?😂. That boat looks expensive. Then 15 gallons an hour is about $50 an hour to get anywhere! It is going to add up! Very comfortable though.
Frank K
Frank K 9 days ago
His inheritance was people paying to watch his “disaster” video of his sailboat. He collected the money, did not fix the boat, sold it to some poor sucker and went on renting catamarans and spending over 200k for this motorboat. Wake up people, he’s hustling us!

Welcome to the dark side. First boat as an adolescent was a sunfish, then a couple of motor boats. In my 40's I rented a 23' Pearson and then finally bought a 23" Grady White. Seen both worlds and enjoy them both. Cool shades BTW!
