Lindmark trawlers question.

A fairly exhaustive search about Lindmark has come up pretty darn empty. They appear to be listed as Lindmark Yacht Sales- Keelung Taiwan. I have seen the Glouscester model, SR 39 (Sea Ranger?), and another larger model. So I guess they did not build too many boats or there would be more info out there. Just another average TT? Are they better or worse than the others? Anything particular to them? I am thinking of looking at one, but it might as well be the only one ever made for all I can find out about it. The hull ID starts with LMY which appears to no longer pertain to Lindmark if it ever did. This one has slightly more information available than the LePage 41 I was trying to find info on. The LePage had almost nothing as far as history. Actually, it had nothing at all worth mentioning. Definitely a cottage industry some of these trawlers are.

Donít have any specific info on Lindmark trawlers but I did look at the listing on Yachtworld of the 39 in Michigan. A couple of things that would give me pause are the extensive use of teak on the exterior and teak decks. Another thing I personally donít like is the built in furniture. Other than that it looked like a fairly nice boat. But having redone my teak sundeck this last winter, I would never buy another boat with teak decks especially if they are out in the weather.

My understanding, which I am not sure is accurate, is Lindmarks were a label of a marketer (sales) in Chicago somewhat like Marine Trader but on a much smaller scale. Most of the boats with the label were sold around the Great Lakes. I have no idea which yard in Taiwan built them but they appear to be just another generic TT.

Thank you Dave and Donsan. I am headed up north next week to look at a few boats and this is one of them. My concern with this one is lack of use. Low hours and sitting inside for last four seasons. Not good for the mechanical and I worry about leakapalooza once outside as Dave likes to call it. Will look for staining and the usual moisture spots, fuel tanks, and other big $ potential issues. Two others are steel hulls and I will be inspecting the hidden areas as closely as I can. The pictures of the Landmarks I have looked at all show these boats to be fairly nice, almost as if they were trying to add some bling to differentiate their boats from the run of the mill TT. With my arthritis issues the prospect of built in furniture is not very appealing. I customize all seating and sleeping surfaces quite a bit for comfort. Still worth a look. In fact, very few are not worth a look. You learn much with every boat you get on.

If it has been inside for 4 years you probably wonít see much of wet decks because they have probably dried out by now. Some of our priorities when we were looking were no fixed furniture and no tall ladders. We both have bad backs and sitting on built in furniture for hours, not just a few minutes while we were looking at the boat, so built in was definitely out. No tall ladders, my wife has had 5 shoulder surgeries in the last 4 years and we have an 85 pound Lab and we want him with us not stuck down below. We also wanted a walk around bed in the aft cabin, not up next to the wall.
