Propulsion is optional

it would fit in the Panama Canal

AS there claiming "low cost" by using 2 30KW noisemakers ($20 - $30 an hour?) perhaps a couple of low cost Seagull engines would be OK.

Greetings,
Mr. b. As shown in the listing there is no drive train
in that particular unit so, no, not a trawler. Simply an extremely expensive barge that needs be relocated by "tug or cargo ship". With a couple of Seagull engines for propulsion as Mr. FF suggests...???



Personally I can find a lot more interesting investments for MY spare $9.5M that that "thing".

No it's not but neither are most of the boats people want to call "trawlers" that really aren't.

To FF and RT Firefly points of low cost and money well spent elsewhere
