Does “shiny” help you beat away the blues?  My first thought upon seeing this boat was that it might be made by the same folks who designed the stern of a Citroen DS.  Any guesses on the price you’d pay to buy this 44′ runabout?

Back to our shiny 44-footer.  It’s a Zeelander that’ll set you back a staggering $1.34 million!  That’s a Zeelander, as in Zeeland, Michigan.  Here’s a short video about the builder, Leon Slikkers.

And many thanks to Mage, very frequent commenter on this blog.  Mage beats the hot weather blues by going down to see the ships, as she did here on the pier to see USS Midway.  Click here to see more boat pics Mage took recently.
