Amadeus is a lightly used steel trawler with only 100 original hours.  At 59' Overall, this is a tremendous value.  A great deal of time and thought went into the overall construction and the many systems of this George Buehler design at the factory.  Additionally, all systems have been fine tuned since delivery.  The fairing of the hull is impressive (over $50,000 option) and the interior teak joinery work is beautiful.  Offered at just a fraction of her $1,000,000 replacement cost.  A personal inspection is highly recommended!  PRICE IS FIRM.  No trades.

AMADEUS features a very comfortable (2) stateroom arrangement, gourmet galley, salon with dinette, and a pilothouse with a raised dinette and watch berth.  The warm teak interior joinery is outstanding and teak & holly flooring is found throughout.  Lighting throughout is state-of-the-art energy efficient LED by Lumenautix.

The guest stateroom in the bow has a walk-around queen berth, (2) hanging lockers, several drawer storage areas, (2) portlights, overhead hatch, private shower to starboard, private head to port, and is entered through a water-tight door.

Next aft is the spacious salon area with a large L-shaped dinette, L-shaped settee, built-in desk, double large overhead hatches, portlights, stairs leading up to the pilothouse, and an entrance to the galley.  The galley runs along the port side between the salon and aft master stateroom with the engine room taking up the mid/starboard side.  The galley is beautifully finished with outstanding appliances, granite counter tops and bound carpet over the teak & holly sole.  From the galley companionway is a watertight door leading to the walk-in engine room and further aft is another watertight door leading to the master stateroom.  The engine room features about 7' headroom.

The full beam master stateroom features and walk-around queen berth, (3) hangine lockers, numerous storage areas including (16) drawers, a make-up vanity, overhead hatch, (5) portlights, and a private head with stall shower.

Both heads are beautifully finished with granite counter tops, tile flooring, and teak trim.

The exterior features a spacious flybridge with loads of seating, helm station, bimini top, and electronics mast.  A stainless steel ladder leads down to the main deck level.  Starting aft is a full walk-around settee with a custom fixed bimini frame, sidedecks with substancial railings, and a bow area forward of the reverse sheer pilothouse.  The bow area has a built-in bench, (2) large dunnage boxes, fuel filling station, and a heavy duty windlass.  The main deck level is finished with teak decking.  Boarding the boat is by a removable stainless steel ladder port or starboard or a fixed ladder from the steel swim platform.
