I've been looking for a trawler (again) but have veered off course and now really like an 86 Ocean Alexander 48 Sedan (actually a 52' with the factory added additional 4' in the cockpit).
PowerBoat Guide - Ocean Alexander 48-50 Sedan | Denison Yacht Sales
The boat has DD 6V53TI engines with about 3k hours which have had quite a bit of work done on them recently. Rest of the boat is in very good condition.
I intend to use the boat mostly at displacement speed in rivers and large lakes, but occasionally venturing offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Probably do the Great Loop in a few years.
Anyone know how the boats handle in rough weather? Any positives or negatives on this model?
