Broker's Comments

A timeless and salty cruising trawler designed by William Garden and built by Taiwanese master craftsmen. Major features include: a Portuguese bridge, twin diesels with very low hours, a raised pilothouse, and upper helm with large bridge deck. The interior features high quality teak with some custom cabinetry, open seating in the main saloon with dining area and galley. The spacious owners' cabin is amidships with a double bed and built-in cabinets. A centrally located head with large shower enclosure all the way forward is a cabin with sleeping for two.

With hydronic heat, a generator and full galley and adequate navigation instruments this boat is well-equipped for long distance, independent cruising.

The 20'X50' boat house is available.
