Coastal Marine Engine in Seattle did a complete engine evaluation in 2009 including rebuild of high pressure fuel injection pump, new injectors, compression tested cylinders and rebuilt water pumps. They rodded out the heat exchanger and generally made sure the engine would be trouble free for the foreseeable future.The engine in this boat is "eat-off-of-it clean". The engine room and work spaces are all clean and well organized with many engine spares. The engine has dry stack exhaust.
The TAMD 120 Volvo Marine Engine was specifically designed for demanding applications -- tending toward the heavy duty recreational or even commercial use. Made to be light weight, very robust and with low fuel consumption it has proven itself to be a great power plant. Here is a link to review more information on this engine.
Max speed 12-14 knots is estimated. Owners were never in a hurry.
Generator is 10 KW Kohler with a Perkins engine.
|Draft Max||1.63m (5'4")|
This vessel has a very tall aluminium mast for a trawler-style power boat. The seller reports it has a main sail of significant size that is capable of propelling the boat as a "get home" power source or as stabilizer during runs in beam seas. The owner has never hoisted sail but says all the gear is there and available. It is attached to the boom and mast using a style of furling gear. Antennas are mounted on the top with climbing steps attached to both sides. Air draft is 42 feet.
12 volt, 7 batteries charged by: engine, shore power, generator
Originally manufactured as a 47-48 foot pilothouse trawler this vessel had an extension added to the cockpit by the shipbuilding co-op in Port Townsend making the on-deck length 50 feet. At that time they also added some tankage for water and added cockpit space. Overall with swim platform, davits and bow sprit she reaches 57 feet. Adding the dingy to the davits can push that to 60 feet overall. GRP hull with fiberglass over wood decks, cabin and house. Walk around side decks, aft cabin with access to the cockpit. Large fly-bridge with spacious aft upper deck . A very robust build as seen in items like the life rails, stanchions, anchor chocks, deck hatches and the list goes on. Her appearance is typical of Ed Monk designs with utility of use and practical spaces so common.

Helm is to starboard with a double bench seat to port at the helm. Both sides have access doors to the side decks. Galley is along the starboard side with an "L" shape settee aft and port in the salon cabin. A large Alaska diesel stove provides heat and is located along the aft bulkhead of the salon cabin. Down a few steps is a very large aft master cabin with a double bed and a twin or large single. An aft head holds a bath tub, shower and vanity. Access to the cockpit is through a centerline door. Carpeting throughout with well-kept mahogany lockers and interior detail. Lots of wood inside this boat gives it a very traditional yacht feel.

An extra HT Danforth with 150 feet of rode is also aboard. Flybridge helm area is covered by a canvas removable snap down cover. There is a very large custom-built commercial style cold plate freezer 12 cu. ft. on the bridge. The bridge deck also has numerous built-in and portable lockers for storage, all in very good condition. The dingy davit system is also home to a very practical fish cleaning station with raw water washdown located on both the cockpit and foredeck.
The seller reports he and his wife have made a trip north each of the last 25+ years up to the northern end of Vancouver Island. The huge chest freezer on the bridge was always full of food heading north and full of fish returning south. Usually spending 2-3 months aboard, they towed a 17 foot fishing skiff and made their home aboard with all the required comforts.
