Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Chris Allan of Boatshed Essex. Register or log in to see 37 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.Originally designed and made in Canada, the Trapper 500 was manufactured in this country by Anstey Yachts in Poole. They are well known classic family cruisers with their own owners association. This particular model has a recent survey, and the topside and hull have been professionally re-sprayed. As well as looking fantastic, she has good levels of accommodation, and navigation equipment, she’s clean throughout. In this sort of condition you would expect to pay £14000 plus, so this is an opportunity to pick up a lovely boat at an excellent price.
