Broker's Comments

Having viewed the Trapper 501 one could instantly see that she was a very nice boat simply designed below with the ability to take on the worst the weather could throw at her. With this sea keeping quality and bilge keels she can take the bottom well and explore the quieter creeeks. She has been well cruised and updated by the present owner for the last 11 years, for him a bigger boat beckons.
