Cannot help you with that, but can at least say "welcome to the forum." Good to have you aboard.

I hope "pulled the trigger" merely means that you decided to get it and let the chips fall as they may. :-) I was a sailor for about 17 years (much less than you, to be sure), but sold the Allied Mistress 39 and bought a trawler when I figured that I was getting too long in the tooth to singlehand any more. I do miss sailing, to be honest, but the comfort of a trawler is nice.

Best of luck, and it would be nice if you would share your experiences with the new boat on the forum. Those experiences are sometimes good, and sometimes bad, but always interesting. Especially to those of us who experience them vicariously.

I don't know if it's THIS Durbeck, but if it is, this boat has been in "my most interesting monohulls" for some time now. The shot was taken just off Block Island. I love the boats looks, and would love to know more about the boat. I've never seen a Durbeck like this one for sale. Please let us know more about this boat.

Sweet looking boat, Apogee.

There's a guy named Tim Donley on cruising world forum who worked at Durbeck for many years, eventually as Vice President when they closed up shop. He would be able to answer specific questions about them.

Here's a link to his thread.

Apogee: I keep my boat in Allen harbor in n.k., thre is a boat exactly like that on our docks. From what I understand, it was originally a research vessel. If you want to see it, go up on the top of the main ramp and look to the last dock on the left. It's name is Madeline.

There are some some drawings and pictures of the Durbeck 45 in the first edition of VUP by Bob Beebe. The design was done by Steve Seaton in about 1970. Beam is 15', draft 5'3", displacement (very heavy) 64,000 pounds. Durbeck had a reputation for producing very heavy (thick) fiberglass layups. Contact Steve for more information.

That IS a Durabek, Madeline. I took the photo of my friend's boat at Block Island several years ago.
His was completely redone before he bought it.

There is a Durbeck Seaton Trawler named Borrowed Horse that goes to Georgetown in the Bahamas. I'm not sure what size it is but it does not have the large foredeck like the one in the picture you posted it. It was shaped more like a Krogen. Not sure of the correct terminology here. I'm a 35 year sailor who is just learning about trawlers.
