    Constellation

    I still want to put another boat into the water for leisure sailing- and saw this but haven't yet persuaded 'someone else'. With it's oversized wheelhouse, it is still line fishing for mackerel at the moment but is being replaced by a new-build bigger boat.

    I like the fact it has a large enough wheelhouse for 3 people to sit in if the weather gets bad while at the same time it has a lot of open deck space.

    It is based on a 'Jorgesen Stord' ex. lifeboat. Any thoughts would be very welcome as would any information about the builder.

      What a great looking craft! You certainly will not need to add any electronics to the wheelhouse. The only thing possibly missing is an autopilot. I assume there is storage in the bow.

      What speed will she make? I'm guessing cruise at 8 knots?

      Move her to North Carolina and add air conditioning and I might even get my wife to sign the check.

        I'm so glad that I'm not alone in thinking this is a good boat. I think I could even manage to navigate my way out of the loch myself in this .

        No idea what speed she will do but I'll ask. There is dry storage in the bow but I'm wondering if there is actually room to sleep. Air conditioning is probably not needed over here

          I am sure you could canvas/tent over the main deck area for the occasional over night. A v berth in the bow and a port potty would be good if you plan to spend much time onboard.

            A possible addition to the amenities?

            Standard equipment on Thai Fishing Boats.

              A typical Thai Fishing Boat arriving at Songkhla:

              Pakarang should know this type well.

                  Great one! I love these fishing boats... went out on night fishing once a long time ago with some fishermen... think it was back in 2000 out of Tak Bai in southern Thailand...... We left the shore in the evening, fished through the night and returned at noon the following day.

                  I especially remember a box that was hung over the stern: the restroom (with a hole in the floor for droppings... ) I see this one doesn't have such an installation.

                  Unfortunately, the images from that trip is gone (among those that could not be saved after a hard-drive crash a few years back).

                  What were we fishing? I can't really remember.

                        That must be fun to use during a storm.

                          There is so much I could have said about that experience, but I think I'll leave it at that....

                            Based on the large Light Bulbs on an outrigger and looking at the gear she carries, I would say she is most likely a Squid Jigger:


                            If they had been catching schooling fish attracted by light they would most likely also have carried a Seine Net, which they don't.
                            In any case there must be a fairly good catch on board, looking at the free board. (No load line here)

                            This appears to be a multi-purpose Fishing boat used for short trips, over night or max. 1 week duration, and able to use many types of Fishing gear, incl. Trawl, depending on the season and what is in demand at the time.

                            See the two Cat Heads sticking out from the Engine Room Casing and driven by belts directly from the Main Engine? Simple but efficient when you don't apply too many safety rules.

                              Just got to think about it, Sunda Kelapa sounds like a Malaysian name, leading me to think that this is either a bad Thai translation or just simply an Malaysian fishing vessel.

                                Do you know if this is likely to be for local eating or do they sell them to exporters?

                                I see what you mean about the
