After THIS post about “Ugly Looking Piraty Tourboats” Professional Ugly Boat finder & commenter Elisesse  found another one, as pictured above! Thanks again Elisesse!

Reader Elisesse made a very thorough comment on my post about Japanese Sightseeing Boats from about 10 years back and this comment was so filled with some really funky looking contraptions that I decided it deserved some more attention: please read, watch & follow the links below.

But have you seen Turkish “pirate galeons”?  http://www.barbossayacht.com/ especially that Barbossa Side thing:

… Sure they are visually attractive & visitors have a great time on board, but designs of each ship is just unbearably stupid & freaky. And take a very close look at rigging – an overwhelming amount of stuff done with all seriousness just for the sake of look. This one’s rigging makes feel that it was designed by someone who really had no clue in it. “A pirate tall-ship sorta… who cares? It looks as one, so?”

To have a better understanding – look for example at Poland’s “galeon” tourboats:

Similar fake tall ships but done with all seriousness to replicate classic galeons with all their decorations.
Slightly cartoonish but still:

And down to stupidity but not like in Japan or Turkey:

Some “pirate galeons” from US – these are a series of same design, simplistic shapes of hull & decorations, kinda cute/elegant actually!


Silly cute!

EH?

Thanks Elisesse. You struck some UglyShips gold there!
You do have to wonder what some of these designers were thinking..or smoking.
