California Cruising Couple Creatively Conceives Commodious Customizations
John and Mary Torelli (and Sailor Blue) are pictured with their new Helmsman Trawlers 38E Pilothouse Trawler.
John and Mary are experienced boaters having owned three Nordhavns prior to their Helmsman and authoring “Life is a Journey Why Not Live It Aboard a Trawler?” (available from Amazon!). John and Mary contributed fundamentally and significantly to many of the design features that distinguish the 38E from its predecessor, and also customized their boat’s interior to meet their desire for a very large, open main salon.
John and Mary are mooring their boat at the Sunroad Marina on Harbor Island in San Diego. They plan to cruise to Santa Catalina Island, Baja Mexico, and eventually complete the Great Loop in their Helmsman 38E.
Welcome to the Helmsman Trawlers family!
