It looks like a transworld 50" trawler from Transworld Yachts Shipyard in Taipei, Taiwan.

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

Thank you JWC for the look but I'm not sure about that. I too thought they might be related but there are some differences that stand out. The biggest difference is the slightly squarish stern that I don't have shown. I will try to take a photo of the stern and repost. It is rounded but flattens out. Also there are three top deck supports, instead of two and the top deck looks flush, Not with any step at the upper helm.
Thank you very much for the help. Any other ideas?

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

This is not a "Fantail" stern. It looks just about exactly like most traditional west coast seine net fishing boats. One I could lust over though. By the way it's my opinion that this boat is 100% OK w the FB. Nice nesting job w the Forfjord anchor too.

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

Where is the boat located?* Looks to be no name boat that was built local.* There are/were a number of boat mfg that build commercial but when the commercial died they concert to pleasure.* I would not be to concerned about the name/mfg but the present condition and survey. ***
*
Its close to being a fan tail as it's sort of round and does*foward slant towards the bow.* Certainly not a standard square blunt stern like most pleasure boats and its not a Canoe stern, so I would call it a fan tail of sorts.*****

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

With some help of a local Broker I have found the following information on "Galatea":

Galatea was built in 1967 by Paul Lindwall in Santa Barbara for Bill Hanna, the cartoonist who created Fred Flinstone, Yogi Bear, etc.* She is among the few seiner yachts designed by Art DeFever, and marks the beginning of heavy displacement trawler yacht trend. Constructed of fir on oak, she is monel fastened. Galatea measures 53.5 x 16.5 and displaces 105,000lbs. Power is a single Caterpillar D-333, dry stack,* turning a 48 wheel. *Cruises in the past five years have included Alaska, Canada, Mexico, Tinsley Island, Channel Islands.


Galatea is slipped in Newport Harbor. She has been added to my favorits list. What about you?

Thank you for the help.

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

Absolutely!

What a beautiful yacht. The stern is 100% Seiner but the bow is vintage yacht. You mention Broker so she must be for sale. If ther'es such a thing as a Passagemaker without stabilizers this would seem to be it. In your first 2 pics she only looked average but w the info and pics WOW what a boat. Is that what you wanted to hear?

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

Was onboard GALATEA quite a few years ago when she was based out of*Port Townsend.*

A beautiful yacht, although I'm not sure she has a pure fantail stern.* As others have noted, it is very much like a traditional seiner stern.

What I wouldn't give for an engine room like that! She's a proper yacht.

I'd say she's about perfect, inside and out! A very handsome trawler yacht for sure. (The engine room appears to be simple, uncluttered, and clean)

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

Here is an example of a classic "fantail stern". This is a yacht that spent it's life as a forest service boat here in SE Alaska. She's a little more tug-like than the fantail yachts. If I had unlimited money this is the "trawler" I'd have.

Very "salty" looking!* I love it!

We* have a similar boat that is often seen cruising San Diego Bay.

She was launched in 1914.

RE: What is this Fantail Trawler

Galatea spent a number of years in Port Townsend, I was friends with the previous owner that had her for some time. I spent a fair amount of time on her as she was a very cool boat... it had a bunch of " original " H/B comic art on the walls. The boat was very original.. but needed to be updated . The only problem was she had a dry exhaust and she would soot up the decks of my GB36 when he started the CAT.* The last owner has dumped a lot of money into her and it really shows. A real old time passagemaker!

A Lindwall Yacht

Galatea is of the elite Santa Barbara, CA built Defevers. Built by Sugar Lindwall, she is entirely monel fastened. (no rust, no corrosion; ever). We own her big sister, Tonina. Tonina, was the largest yacht that Lindwall Boatworks built and the largest yacht Art Defever designed up to that point. I can tell you that Galatea, Tonina and the rest of the Lindwall yachts are well kept and are very sought after in the Trawler world. We all stay in contact with each other and have become friends though the common interests in our boats.

I've always admired them. Never had the chance to tour one, but from the pictures they look like a nice balance of classic and modern that really appeals to me.
