Favorite sedan trawler under 40'?

What's your favorite sedan-style trawler? 30-40'.
Just curious.

looked long and hard and found one that was right for me.

The Europa style did not suit me because of the fly bridge overhang (I am 6' 6" tall & 300 lbs.).
I was also looking for a project boat (cheep) that we could use and work on at the same time.
Not looking for a long range trawler, just to get away one
to three days at a time.

4 years in and it is working out fine.


Your needs may differ so find something that works for you.

Love my aft cabin 36 foot Albin. Galley up which is a "must have" for us. The only thing I would change is the queen bed in the main cabin is against a wall, hard for the admiral to climb over the captain who generally retires earlier. I would switch sides with her but when things go 'bump in the night" I like to be able to jump out of bed quickly, plus I generally get up a couple times per night if we are at anchor just to check things out. (might as well hit the head while I'm up"

Well, I prefer a RPH style, but if it’s got to be a sedan, then it would be Willard 40.

Larry, there’s a blurb in Voyaging Under Power about the W40.
There’s a RPH version for sale for about $125K.

We got rid of a sedan style cruiser due to the ladder to the bridge. Too tall and too vertical. As we get older we wanted steps not ladders so we got a sundeck. Besides our dog could not do a ladder but he does steps. And he isn’t happy if he isn’t with us, being left below would not be good...

I'm with Milt - Our Marine Trader 34 is great for us. Solid boat and plenty of space. Just make sure you find one in good shape.

I love the Corvette 34, more popular in the UK where it orginated, the company went under, senior executives from the Fleming Yacht company purchased the forms, carried over two execs from the old company and are now producing the Corvette. Its nick name is the "baby Fleming" as it obviously has major input from Fleming and is built in the same yard as Flemings.

I like the design for many reasons but one is the inside living area is carried all the way to the transom and the cockpit seating area is above. In my opinion, cockpit areas are great space eaters with little gain.

My philosophy is like many - the smaller the boat that works for you is best. Thirty four feet in the Corvette configuration works well and is known for the roomiest interiors for a yacht its size:

Corvette is a nice boat but I don't consider it a sedan style because of the aft cabin

My parents had an Ocean Alexander 40 Europa back in the 90's. Still practical and stylish.

Under 40’ sedan trawler

We have a 2009 346 ES Integrity. It’s the perfect husband/wife boat for us. Single engine yanmar engine, bow & stern thrusters .

How would one define a Sedan? Some of the suggested boats (aft-cabins) I wouldn't consider a sedan, but maybe I don't have a clear definition.

I think of a Sedan like the Mainship 350/390, 400. Also most of the Grand Banks (not aft cabin or 'classic') and Island Gypsy.

I often think of a Sedan like a Europa without the side deck overhangs and outboard upper deck supports. I've always like the Europa style because to me it looks like a classic mini-yacht.

Sedan Trawler

I like the Mariner Orient Europa 38, great queen up front, galley up in salon with good view, salon and back deck same level, easy access to swim platform. Modified ladder to bridge to accommodate getting old!

Yes I have. Although I dearly love the 40, The 47 stole my heart, and somehow I’d put up with the Portuguese bridge too.

Thought I would chime in. After owning a President 41 and looking at many trawlers between 30 and 40', and also some faster boats (Meridian and others) the Admiral and I settled on a Mainship 34. Easily cruised by 2, can accommodate 4 but not for long, with stairs to the flybridge, easy access and exit, and lots of social area.
Cheers
