This incredibly capable solid GRP Trawler boasts large internal space, perfect for a live aboard, entertaining or extended cruising. This American Hershine design is everything you could want in a Trawler.
She has cruised the East Coast extensively and is ready to go again! Shaft Driven by Twin Caterpillar 375hp’s she is reliable and cruises happily at 10kts through any weather conditions and can get up and move topping out at 18kts. Her 6.5kva generator keep the batteries topped up and domestic systems running. This makes for smooth, quiet, fuel efficient cruising.  The hull has a sharp forward entry to efficiently cut in to the waves and a classic flared bow to softly absorb the downward motion of the bow. 
The engine room is well kept and the interior is well suited for cruising
It is a very spacious and extremely comfortable living space connected to the large semi-covered deck area.
Port Midships is a well-appointed galley with large size fridge, a three-burner stove and oven, and two deep freezers and galley fridge. Stb is a very spacious head and two bunks.
There is an impressive aft cabin with a centerline queen and adjoining head even has a tub shower. The forward cabin sleeps two guests.
She had a shiny new paint job in 2020, with all the exterior varnish and woodwork restored too. The interior has had a refit, including carpet, squabs, and linings. The plumbing and electrical systems have been upgraded, and the windlass had a new motor.
