Construction

Construction Steel
Underwater profile Full-Displacement
Finish Paint finish

Round bilged, full keel with skeg-mounted rudder (i.e. protected running gear) and a round cruiser-type stern. BIG rudder (see photo).

Construction is of welded steel -- 4 and 5 mm plate. Decks are teak laid on 4 mm steel. Marine ply bulkheads.

Ultrasound hull examination in 2012 found the hull to be in good condition throughout.

Hull and topsides are painted with Awlgrip -- 2013 bottom blasted and hull repainted; 2017 topsides and non-skid on house repainted.

Tanks are steel, with fuel tanks being double-bottomed.

Waterline Boats / Boatshed did not independently verify capacities and measures, which are from seller-provided information and/or literature.

Board midships, with hinged handrails and teak step plates, to the side decks. Teak strip planking atop steel decks covers the side decks, foredeck, and elevated aft deck.

The aft deck features a beautifully-finished round table and a semi-circular settee above the cruiser stern. The aft deck is fully covered with a hardtop. This is an incredibly pleasant place to sit outdoors.

Double bi-fold doors open into the wheelhouse. Dual helm seats, a commanding view forward over the long length of the boat, and an unobstructed rear view make this a pretty ideal piloting situation. Steer with the most impressive ship's wheel that I've seen, or with the joystick on the rudder hydraulic system.

A companionway with curved, easily-negotiated stairs lead down into the roomy saloon. With gorgeous joinery (accomplished at a level of craftsmanship higher than is commonly seen on all but very high-end yachts), yards and yards of windows, attractive, uncluttered decorating and comfortable and adult-sized seating this is a VERY inviting interior. The height of the side windows is such that it is easy to see out to the water even while seated. The settee will seat about six or seven people comfortably, and the Ekornes Stressless recliner with ottoman will seat one additional lucky person.

The galley is forward and down, with a lovely circular dinette opposite. A "down galley" is sometimes unfavored, though in this configuration it is quite attractive. Only a few steps down from the saloon, there is only enough separation between the two living areas to maintain their distinct functions, but not enough to limit easy movement and communication and sociability. The dinette is more than just a table and seating -- it's a real attractively-designed feature in its own right. I can see a lot of fun being had here in addition to meals. Overhead the forward and side-facing windows bring in tremendous light. The dinette converts to a double berth.

The galley features Seafreeze coldplate refrigerator and freezer, a curved Corian countertop, and lots of storage. There is a small convection microwave oven, and a cooktop would be with a portable hot plate, so cooking facilities are spartan, but could be enhanced with some modifications.

Forward is the guest cabin, with double berth (there is a function that allows the berth to swing to port in a different configuration), guest head, and a Splendide washer/dryer.

The master stateroom is a unique and spacious stern gallery -- round and surrounded by portlights. There is storage aplenty, in attractive cabinetry. A wood door opens to reveal a steel watertight door into the engineroom. Two single berths are arrayed at right angles -- not a typical stateroom configuration. But there is plenty of space in this room to reconfigure if desired. Private head and shower are to starboard. A writing table is to port.

Several additional features to note: sliding skylights open above the wheelhouse and the saloon; newer headliner throughout is in excellent condition; deck hatch in the saloon has been expanded to make engine or generator rebuild or replacement, if and when required, much more straightforward.

Cabin heating and hot water from Hurricane II hydronic heating system, with new boiler and controls 2018.

Two Cruisair reverse-cycle units (12,000 BTU each) are operable for heating and cooling.

Broker's Comments

VIRTUAL TOUR - VIDEO - 80 TO 100 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL!
Boat lovers who frequent their local marinas can immediately name a few boats that they admire in perhaps a slightly obsessive way. This Lowland 471 has been on my list for years.

Start with the unique features: Dutch-built of steel construction, she's more ship than boat. Long, stepped profile with wheelhouse positioned far aft -- she is not of commonplace design. Lines that communicate smooth and efficient waymaking. Round cruiser stern with a semi-circular aft settee, she intimates sociability and relaxation while at anchor.

What else does she have to offer? A lot. The interior is roomy, comfortable and full of lovely joinery and craftsmanship. Windows galore, with sliding skylights too, open the interior to the natural world. Ship's systems are in most cases commercial grade, including hydraulic bow thruster, hydraulic get-home drive, 145# anchor, and 400' of 3/8" chain. Movement around the exterior is easy on wide side decks. And the teak planking (over steel decks) is classic and functional.

Steel construction is worth comment -- while rarer in the U.S. than in Europe, and considered uneasily by some, it has the benefits of being extremely tough and easily repairable -- and of greater safety from fire. Good care assures a very long life for steel boats, and this one has seen good care including recent Awlgrip painting of hull and superstructure. This was expensive work, but it prepares the boat for many years of easy and enjoyable use. Walk around the boat -- the finish is beautiful.

She's termed a Long Range Trawler for a reason -- 1800 nm or more at 7.8 knots. And 500 gallons of water capacity.

A unique opportunity for a pedigreed trawler crafted in the Old World!
