Hello,

I really don't look after advertising... that's only trying to show some very small euro-design I find here around, I agree not all are close to trawler ...

The Marlin is eventually the one I'm planning to get; they were built in the seventies, with thick grp hull (6T and 1800kg of ballast).

With roots from trad' Balearic Islands (Occidental Mediterranean Sea) fishing boats, where strong North wind accelerates between Alpes and Pyrénées, Menorquin boats double-enders, with open pilot-house maybe interesting.

There is the small 43 "palmas"=43x"20cm"=>8.6m x 3m, long keel, draft 75cm, low profile (2.3m above water / bridges), same size also the "Majoni"
Usually powered by two quite big engines for sea (security, but twice everything: weight/place/spares/noise/consumption...), but sometimes fitted with only 1 engine = then much better in canal (with only one Volvo 75hp, it drinks economic 1.4 l/h at 5 knots in canal!): with no swimming platform, it'ld be my next boat...
Quite good for windy canals/Rhône-river and enough seaworthy along occidental mediterranean coast (often with short small waves), but slow boat: 6 to 7 knots, with no wake.

Hello
I'm around Montpellier, sometimes in the Cévennes (small mountains)...
Not yet with a boat.
There are a lot of 2nd hand boats for sale around my place, often at good price (for buyers!)
but not such as small trawlers...

20 years there, you must know a lot the city, with cosmopolitan Unversity place, well famous for good Medecine.

I'm North-East from Montpellier... but moving a lot.
Right now writing from a lonely old farm at 1400 meters above sea-level (too hot now around Mptllier), walking with dog all day (after 5h, dog is slowing down), collecting raspberries before first fall's cold; strong wind and wilderness, plateau and large sky at 360° remind me the Sea.

Menorquin, yes strange mixture: one adapted (for sharp/short waves) fishing-boat hull but with (too) high wheelhouse.
From fall-time prices are lowering a lot.

Welcome!
I remember seeing one or two Menorquin boats at the Miami boat show in the mid to late 1990s they were very "fancy" versions with lots of wood trim the "fantail" at the stern was new to me. It was a move to market them in the US I don't know if they succeeded.
In the picture in post 26 it shows a point like a tiny "bulbous bow" what would the purpose of that be?
The boat in post 22 looks very nice, how long is it?
Good luck with your search! Please keep us informed.

Yes, bulbous bow. Supposed to increasing speed and fuel efficiency (very small size, marketing argument ?), it was quickly discontinued mainly due to its fragility and vulnerability in the event of collision with "dead heads" or grounding.

This article will tell you all about bulbous bows. Particularly interesting for us is why they're not seen on our smaller boats. No doubt Menorquin was trying to demonstrate to purchasers just how wonderful and up to date their weird boats are.

My family's first Grand Banks boat, a 42' Classic hull # 52, twin Ford Lehman 120 HP shipped from Junk Bay Hong Kong in late 1968. She was the second GB 42' delivered in Mediterranean.

Your yacht is stunning, love the drone pics, and the boat.

No, no. My family sold this boat in mid-1978.

Almost half a century after she was commissioned and extended cruising in the whole Mediterranean she is still strong and always on the job.

She came back on the market 2 years ago, quickly sold.
Whether we like Grand Banks or not, quality is there. I let you look at her 2014 pics (Broker's website).

Nice boat look good, I love GB too, very mice looking boat and like you say high quality...

Terranova Yacht born in 2004 and first build boat in Crotone Italia, what very difficult with boatyard so they moved very quickly to Arbatax Sardinia, they made this choice because in Sardinia Italian gouvernent give grant and taxe facility to try to restore economy in Sardinia after they move to Porto Torres and finally "Terranova Yacht" don't survive to the crisis and made bankruptcy in 2009.

Last year some people bought mold of 68/85/115 and some hull unfinished and try to reborn the brand under the new name "Terranova Italian Yachts" and now like you say they are in Pisa, hope they boing to by success full
For now look like they don't sold any Yacht and looking for fist client, they now making Cannes boatshow
