This is a gorgeous, well-built, long range trawler, built by Independent Shipwrights. The order was placed by a very knowledgeable client, who wanted it to meet commercial standards. It is a solid, well-built vessel that loves these waters. Independent Shipwrights know what it takes to build a quality vessel. The thick 42ft Seamaster hull, Portuguese styled bridge, was designed by Wahl & Melenchuk and built by Roy Brown using his skill of over 40 years building heavy commercial wooden boats. Roy, using his knowledge and shipright skills brought the Ocean Romancer to life and the quality shows. The layout also works very well for a live-a-board and it has a safe range over 1200 miles for cruising. Built stable and strong, the ballast is in the keel plus in the sides of the hull. This is one tough ship.
