Broker's Comments

If you are looking to find a quality, sturdy trawler that provides comfort and pride of ownership AND a beautiful interior this Bluewater Pilothouse Trawler is a must-see vessel.

This boat surprised me with its interior space. Classed as a 40 footer, she feels much larger with a generous saloon, a large raised pilothouse, a big master suite, and a comfortable guest cabin. And she has big-boat features including a large boat deck, portuguese bridge, and a proper ship's mast.

The owner is retiring from larger boat ownership.

Art work, some floor coverings and dinghy are not included.

These boat details are subject to contract.
