Broker's Comments

The Trapper 500 is a stable well made and extremely well mannered cruising boat. She offers excellent performance under sail or power.
This is the bilge keel version so she has the ability to dry out in harbours, on sandy beaches or drying moorings and she is ideal for creek exploration.
She has 6 berths in 2 cabins, with 2 doubles and 2 singles. She was re-engined in 1997.
This boat has cruised extensively yet has given a good account of herself on the local racing circuit.
She is currently ashore for her winter refit so the underwater hull can be inspected.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
