Broker's Comments

This traditional Californian 38 tri-cabin trawler is a good value for a 42 foot LOA twin diesel vessel. The current owners purchased her a little over a year ago and have fixed everything noted on their purchase survey, plus added lots more, so she's completely ready to cruise. She is currently boathouse kept.

A partial trade for a motorhome may be considered.

These boat details are subject to contract.
