Broker's Comments

The Trapper 500 is a very popular Family cruiser and which represents a good value yacht with good accomodation. This one is in good condition with all work recommended in the 2005 survey now complete. She gives a welcoming feel when you go below with good headroom pretty much all the way to the forecabin. The heads have to be largest of any boat under 40 feet. If you are looking for a good value yacht to keep the family amused this summer she is definatley worth a look.This boat has been viewed and photographed by Rupert of Boatshed Chichester.
