Broker's Comments

Preliminary details, awaiting confirmation by owner.

The Trapper 28 is a much respected cruiser/racer with a good turn of speed and able to handle herself if things get a little rough.

This boat has been much improved since 1994 and has been in her current ownership for the last 5 years. Her lovely lines are accentuated by her recently painted hull and she benefits from a new engine (2002).

Although there is still some more cosmetic work to do, this boat is ready to go for the coming season. She is reluctantly for sale due to an expanding family.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
