Broker's Comments

They call boats “She” for a reason. This Trapper 500 has been in the same ownership for nearly 30 years. She has been well cared for and maintained by her owner and like Sophia Loren or Raquel Welch is still highly desirable and good looking. She is clean and tidy and certainly does not look her age.
The interior offers a forward cabin with a double berth and there is a large heads to port. The main cabin has a dinette arrangement to Port which will convert to a double berth. There is also a settee berth and galley starboard with a quarter berth to port. The cockpit can seat six and there is good deck space.
For a boat from this generation she sails very well being easy to handle with a good turn of speed. She has the added benefit of bilge keels which enables her to explore creeks and also to dry out on sandy beaches, drying harbours or moorings.
If you are in the market for a quality vessel at a budget price please arrange a viewing.
