I've come to realise that I need a trawler - what should I look at on a tight budget?

that is a nice coastal cruiser but you aren't going to cross oceans in it. Looks like someone cut the flybridge off that one though.

Not convinced yet, but exploring just getting and FRP Caribbean Cruiser class.

I just thought that since this wasn't specifically a thread of yours, and that you are participating in several of the other threads started bt Tony B and others, that is was a little strange to pull up one from the past. That's all. no biggie

I was going to give an award to Tony B for the most rapid-fire post count increase, but you are welcome to try and take that title from him if you like. "Have at it boaters."

"What should I look for on a tight budget?"

An unloved boat.

In the US that can mean Steel construction , which is not understood on this side of the pond.

Wood would be an option IF wood boats and NOT cruising is your hobby.

Fero cement , get real,

In GRP the best deal would be a larger boat with a smaller interior.
This would be out of favor as a dock queen as folks somehow think mere volume , a roomaran , is the thing to have.

The Tollycraft come to mind , well built , the interior is modest and old enough to find an unloved unit.

*

The best deals will require a bunch of sweat equity.

*

Refinishing an interior is tedious , but cheap .

*

Replacing ancient toys , noisemaker, AP, HW heater, FW system , head and waste storage , windlass are all not difficult IF YOU can do the work, and the upgrade is yours , and you didnt pay for old trash in the purchase price.

*

A boat that needed an engine replacement would be an entire different matter , as repowers frequently require some pro help (a crane for R&R as a minimum) it would hardly be a good novice choice,regardless of price.
