45' Northwest 2008

I'm in contract to purchase a 45' Northwest trawler and getting it surveyed the end of this month. Does anyone out there have any knowledge of this trawler? Only 3 were made in Washington state.
Thanks

All I know I learned from this video: Pacific NW Boater | Northwest Trawlers

(I didn't make the video, but thought it well done enough to share on our site.)

As the builder of this boat, I would be happy to answer any and all questions but probably should do so offline as this forum is not for commercial use and I don't want to wear out my welcome.

Well done, Peter. (As well as your boats and the video!) However, none of the links I have to your website are working. I found a blog, and tried the redirect link there, but it didn't work either...

I have been on the NW trawlers at boat shows in the PNW. Also I have met Peter. Both boat and man are worthy. But as always, on a used boat it comes down to PO's diligence in keeping up mechanical, electrical and finish areas.

I have recently been on high end 3 year old boats that were visibly poorly maintained and not worth making offers on since obvious owner malfeasance and lapses would only compound themselves in the unseen areas. And I've been on 25 year old vessels that are pristine. Hopefully the 45NW is in the latter category

Peter -

It must be something specific to your site on my end. Just tried it again and all I see in the address bar is "about:blank". Tries loading something for a a bit then I get a "Problem loading page", and "The connection has timed out. The server at northwestyachts.com is taking too long to respond". Same thing happens when I try the links to your site off ours.

All other web pages/links I access are loading. Anyone else on this forum able to access Peter's site?

The link works for me Peter.

BTW, Peter's company also handles the Island Gypsy line of boats.

Lucky you

I have never been on one ,but they look comparable to the Selene's
I did a quick check on yachtworld and the only thing missing from the equipment is active stabilizers, which depending on your style of crusing may be a good add-on
I have run both Nordhavns and Selenes and as soon as I clear the harbour I turn on the Naiad's to keep the china from rattling

For Peter's sake I'm glad the links work for everyone. He is obviously concerned that the links do not work for me. We have PM'd and emailed specifics regarding browsers, computers, etc. Afterall, I would certainly want to know if my website was not working for some reason!

The links don't work for me with IE8, but do work when browsing with Google Chrome. I am in WA state, and I have met Mr. Marin and read one of his books if that helps troubleshooting. Bill
