Ugly from any angle. Someone actually drew that and said "yeah, that looks fine, let's build it.




Line drawing, it ain't any prettier here either

Any of these:

Re: Ugly Boats

I have to agree, #2 should not be on this list, that is beautiful, would love to have that, if I could afford it.

Re: Ugly Boats

The Trailways boat isn't ugly because it has a sense of humor. It's kinda awesome.

I suspect you'd find #2 was built as a racing yacht and converted to a cruiser at some point with the addition of an ugly cabin-top and wheel steering. I see that quite a lot.. and if the hull is in good condition and you can buy the boat cheaply enough, with little effort you can end up with a very lovely and desirable yacht.

Re: Ugly Boats

I really hope I don't offend anyone here with this (and sadly I like the company) but:

That looks like a Yamaha under all that crap - they are nice boats.

Believe it or not, that Buc was designed by Bill Garden. Not his finest work.
