What makes this a special boat and one you want to buy are price and condition! The prior owner reported that he had invested over $250,000 in this boat. Since 2006 he restored, repaired, re-powered, upgraded and improved the boat constantly, continuing to add new navigational equipment as recently as the fall of 2015. It's large enough to be used comfortably as a live-aboard yet with a single recently-installed modern engine it's efficient and affordable to operate yielding 1.5 gallons per hour on a 2011 Alaska trip. The bottom on this vessel has been peeled and epoxy coated creating a smooth surface today. Similar brands include C&L Trawlers, Puget Trawlers, and Ponderosa. And she even compares well to a Grand Banks for space and amenities, at a much lower cost. It is also a new enough version to not be heavily loaded with exterior teak.
Taking into account condition, equipment and recent upgrades this boat is an extraordinary value!
