Broker's Comments

The 501 ia already something of a classic.It was a wise move to upgrade the 500 rather then redesign a replacement as it gave Trappers a chance to iron out and genuinely improve on a proven winner. Her age hardly shows, her performance is everything one would look in a capable crusing yacht and the finish is impressive. I have no hesitation is recommending her to anyone looking for a 28- footer with a touch of class!
