A Trawler with enough storage and living space to never have to leave the comforts of home. In the aft and main cabin there are 2 Sigmar diesel heaters and window heat screen inserts, so you'll never have to worry about running for warmer climates.

Dual sinks, a Norcold Refrigerator, and a Princess 3-burner electric stovetop are inset to an open u-shaped galley countertop where even the Chef can be included in cabin conversations. A Sigmar diesel-fired oven provides cabin heat and a gourmet-quality oven.

Across from the galley is the galley settee/berth convertible and table with seating for 4-6 people. The aft cabin is the location for the two twin berths located starboard aft and port forward.

In the mid/main cabin is where you will find the master stateroom complete with a queen berth with multiple storage locations, Sigmar heater, and a head containing a standup shower, vacuflush, and vanity.

Up forward by the chain locker and below the main deck you will find a work room which converts into a single berth.
Just aft of the work space is a sizeable storage area complete with a refrigerator, washer/dryer combo, watermaker, and access to various shipboard systems.

Broker's Comments

A liveaboard, a cruiser, a home away from home, or even a charter, this sturdy built vessel will take you where your need to go and put your mind at ease for a safe return home.

A spacious and open floor plan provides plenty of elbow room and the space and flexibility for any layout modifications to accommodate one's personal tastes.

The topside deck's open space can transform into a floating oasis or birds eye view for those moments when it really counts.

With such sturdy and expensive construction, this boat is a steal at the current price. A new owner can enjoy its comfortable interior as-is, or continue the fit-out of a unique custom yacht. The possibilities truly are endless with this trawler!
