This unique, custom designed, boat was designed specifically for commercial fishing for lobsters. It has huge cockpit deck to pile lobster traps on and an open/no transom at the aft of the boat which makes it easy for fishermen to unload the traps. The large skeg and the rudder give the boat great directional stability and control.
This would be a great design to modify to make a lobster yacht.
