Now here's a value-priced trawler!

I'm not in the market, but this 34' Mainship looks like a good deal for someone on the East Coast looking to spend around $30K:

I wonder what the story is regarding that huge bow pulpit. - The interior does look a little tired. Few creature comforts, no AC..tiny flybridge, lots of rod pockets on the aft rails, maybe priced right for what's more a sportfish than a trawler.

diffrent strokes.

Greetings,
I'm not in the market either but I would like to comment on the YW listing. The FIRST thing I look for in an ad is a picture or two of the ER. To my mind a neat and tidy ER is a sign, at least to me, that the owner/seller cares for their boat. Any listing may show tastefully appointed living areas and the latest and snazziest electronics BUT, as I said, the ER is what counts with me.

Greetings,
Mr. Al. You may have a point there. VERY astute observation! The boat DOES float after all and what else floats?

"Paint sells the boat ", but I would rather have a complete maint log than a polished valve cover.

Greetings,
Mr. FF. Valid points, but again, when just looking at a listing on line a tidy ER, in my opinion, is more of a selling point than fancy seat covers.
