RE: Does anybody know anything about an Ocean Yacht 40+2 trawler?

In my opinion this boat is not a planing hull at all. I think it was at one time but the builders/designers modified it to be fuel efficient but they stopped short of putting smaller engines in it. And as far as seaworthy-ness goes I'll bet the original planing hull was less seaworthy. As I've said before one could make a 7 to 8 knot trawler out of most SD trawlers by reshaping the stern basically like this "Ocean" and installing much smaller engines. One could get a big fuel efficient boat very cheaply this way. I originally thought of doing this to a wood Chris Craft but they are too flat fwd.

Countless family vacations, river & Long Island Sound, Block Island, Martha's Vineyard etc trips. Twin Perkins - smokers when cold but clean and green when warmed up. In all that time, one stalled once. Spacious & stable. Buy it !
Skipperguy,

I'm looking at one of these, perhaps the same one. The boat's name Crews In. Might you be able to tell me anything about the vessel, assuming it is the same one? Any information you can furnish would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Basil
