Description

SEE Video! Very Unique Trawler!

Elegant Custom Trawler. If you want to cruise or live aboard and you want a "homey" atmosphere, you simply MUST see this boat.  The galley is more like momma's kitchen that most boats you'll find and the storage is absolutely amazing!  

Single forward cabin with two queen sized mattresses separated by center-line bulkhead, large closet, bureau, vanity with sink plus open sitting/dressing area. Up six steps to the pilothouse with helm to starboard.  Fixed safety glass windshield gives great visibility and light for the nav station, down two steps to galley (really a FULL-size kitchen) with dinette opposite. Head compartment just aft of dinette has ceramic tile shower followed by salon with built-in daybed/settee, tabletop cabinets and a six foot sofa. Covered fantail deck and storage closet, ladder to sun deck.
HUGE top deck has accommodated most of the 50 guests on a fund-raising cruise on the St Johns River. It is covered with a recent Sunbrella top on sturdy stainless steel framework.

  • Large mahogany framed windows with wood blinds. Windows open from top to allow air flow even if raining.
  • Cruise Air .75 ton in forward cabin
  • Freidrick 1.5 ton for main cabin
  • Heavy oak floors with numerous access hatches to workroom and engine room.
  • Solid mahogany interior with light formica for ease of maintenance.
  • Twin 135hp diesels with 11hp bow-thruster make her an economical and nimble cruiser.
  • Cruises at 7.5 knots burning 3 Gal/Hr.

Performance at Sea

I have done Atlantic coastal cruising and Resolute handles rough seas like most trawlers. She takes seas 45 degrees of the centerline from Starboard and Port forward and aft with out an appreciable roll. Beam seas (that is 45 degrees forward and aft) of the beam line give the typical trawler roll. In close quarters shallow water and steep seas I found it more comfortable to actually tack for short periods. However, her overall roll limits are quite acceptable (subjective opinion). This vessel would do great in the shallows of the Bahamas . It has a 6”X ½” steel plate that runs the length of the keel. It draws 9” at the bow and tapers to 3’ 8” at the stern. Props and shaft are about 18” above the keel. The bow has lots of buoyancy and does not bury itself. From Owner 4/2/2011
