Broker's Comments

This is an exceptionally nice example of the Trapper 500, very clean and tidy, ready to sail, and competitively priced. She has been stored ashore for 3 years, the hull has been epoxied and she is now ready for action. The cabin offers generious accommodation and the cockpit a good size for family cruising or racing. A really nice boat, she deserves to be used and enjoyed.
