Details / Specification

A true displacement trawler with a distinctive flush deck profile. Built in Taiwan of solid fiberglass with a deep keel, moderate beam , and simulated lapstrake hullsides.

Note the 40,000lbs displacement and tremendous fuel and water tankage - fuel 400 galls, water 500 galls. This is a serious offshore cruiser with an honest 600 mile range.

The unusual flushdeck layout  results in a very large afterdeck (with room for dinghy), while still maintaining adequate headroom in the master stateroom below. It also provides for a spacious engine room with near-standing headroom .

The two stateroom floorplan is arranged with the U-shaped galley aft, rather than forward in the salon. Visibility from the lower helm is very good. Port & starboard deck doors.

Topside , the large flybridge has guest seating aft from helm.

Twin 120hp Lehman diesels will cruise effortlessly at 7-8 knots.
