off set propellor, huh?

Earlier this spring I was talking with an owner of a Albin Vega, down at the harbour. He pointed out to me that his boat had a prop that was off set to port (If I recall). Earlier tonight I was reading up on a sailboat called a Gladiator 24. It also appears to have a prop that is off set to port.
What gives with this?
Whats the point?
I can envision problems with this design but not advantages. Please enlighten me.

John
