Mysterious Hull.....*UPDATE FOUND IT**
 
Ok, long story short this is in a little boat yard by my house, Iíve driven by it about 100 times and finally decided to stop in the other day to have a look. Itís very long at least 50í and itís very odd, it was a triple engine set up but engines were mounted way forward 1 in front of cockpit and 2 under neath.
You can see how long the driveshafts are.
All I could find was that the manufacturer was
Nautical Engineering Inc. Owned by Harry Schoell in Ft Lauderdale and closed in 96. Curious if anyone has seen this boat, I cannot find any info on the company...thereís plenty about Harry Schoell. I did post over at Offshore only but not near the traffic this site gets. The guy on the yard said heís gonna cut it up and trash it...just merely curious if itís worth anything or what the history was...cool looking boat.

Hemi_Hammer 11-03-2019 05:16 PM

Did find this, from Schoell Marine website
if you look at the graph, it says 56í Hull
maybe a test hull used for the this hull design !??:

Quite interesting...

Interesting looking boat and drive-line setup. it's a shame it may be just cut up.

I don't know anything about the boat , but ....Heeeeeeeerrrre's Harry! ( video):
https://www.popsci.com/scitech/artic...am-under-hood/

He's head of Cyclone Power Technologies and in the video is talking about a 330-350? hp truck engine adaptation of his external combustion steam engine.

I bet there's a reason there's only one.

Harry Schoell is a bit of genius in the boat design world. I met him back in the 80's. He was famous for the Delta Conic Hull. The Delta Conic Hull was used by several manufacturers, in particular Trojan, and Larson, and I think Mako had a model with that type hull. But he also was working on what was called the Duo Delta Conic and I think the boat you saw is an example of that. The Duo never really caught on.

The Rocket
 
Interesting find and good research Hammer. Absolutely an interesting piece. Looks like a Rocket/ICBM missile. I'm sure there's a hell of a story behind that boat and how it got to your area. Obviously not in So Fl as the boat appears in rather good shape for a late 80's/early 90's hull (?). But photos are generally kind.

The details of the boat, from construction techniques to design and naval architecture (from the write up/article) shows thinking way, way way out of the box...But that is a Harry Schoell signature. Can you imagine balancing those shafts...

Harry was involved with a bunch of one off designs and, as my father-in-law (who was a Nursery man by trade) use to say, "...not every seed that's planted leads to a tree..." Apparently this one didn't make it...

As to what its worth... well it would be a lot more if it was a car. That's a problem for boats in general. Don't like to think it would get cut up neither, that would be a shame as THT'ers in general are wont to rescue 'orphans' and this boat, most guys would agree, is rather 'unique'. Maybe somebody from Texas with the real estate would like to pick it up and put it out at the entry to their driveway - they bury Cadillacs out there don't they ;)

Below is another boat attributed to Harry Schoell from around 2004and briefly manufactured by a British group. It's purpose was supposedly nefarious

In Texas, if you get beat by one, that is considered an ass-whooping. So what would they call this...

Maybe Otseg on here knows a little bit more about... the Rocket...

I found a ton of info actually once I found the name of the boat, but itís been for sale as is for over 12 years all around the country, hereís a pic from offshore only circa 2007
if it was worth anything substantial it would have sold by now I think. Anyways a few more pics for good measure

pics not working, will try later

North American boats built 20..22...26 foot center consoles wiht delta conic hulls...I had a North American C-22 1979...great boat...for it's time...

Great research. Thanks. I boated North Shore of Long Island in the 80’s but never heard of this.

Is this hull still available? I am highly interested in rescuing it. Can you put me in contact with the owner?
