This boat was designed for a Canadian family based on the classic North Sea trawler model. The vessel exudes this workboat heritage in heavy timber construction. The design features a trunk cabin forward, pilothouse amidships, and an aft trunk cabin.

The boat is carvel planked with Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir and fastened to 1 3/4" x 2 3/8" White Oak frames on 12" centers. The deck is Western Red Cedar on Alaska Yellow Cedar beams. The cabin house is fir and fir plywood. Fasteners are galvanized boat nails.

Fir bilge keels (roll chocks) were installed in 2001 to reduce vessel roll.

The boat carries 1400 pounds of internal lead ballast.

Enter the boat from doors port or starboard to the pilothouse. The helm is to port with engine instrumentation, electrical panel, compass, and navigation equipment. Aft and to starboard is the marine head compartment which is finished in tile and includes a manual toilet and sink. From here, stairs lead to the aft cabin with two single berths. The engine and machinery space is below the pilothouse floor.

Stairs amidships lead to the forward saloon. The galley is to port with a fine installation of a Dickinson Pacific diesel stove with oven, rebuilt in 2012 and backed by stainless steel wall plating. A portable two burner propane camp stove is also installed outboard on the counter for fast cooking when desired. The galley features a deep sink, counter, ample storage in drawers and cabinets, a Norcold 12VDC refrigerator Model DC400C, and an Engel 4.5 cu.ft. 12 VDC/110 VAC freezer. Hot water is provided by a Force 10 11 gallon domestic fresh water heater with coils to the main engine.

Opposite the galley is a curved settee with a burl wood dining table. The cabin is finished in high quality unique wood trim and paneling.

Forward from the saloon is the forward cabin v-berth and the anchor locker in the forepeak.

Broker's Comments

This is one remarkable trawler. Stoutly built of the best materials available. Currently upgraded by shipwrights in Port Townsend. The fit and finish are of the highest standards. This is one vessel that should be entered in the local wooden boat shows and it certainly will be a "winner." This BC Trawler shows as "new" in every regard. From the engine room to the pilot house this boat can be called a work of art. Cruse all year round in comfort and style in this "salty" BC Trawler.
