New guy

Hey everyone. Found this forum/website while doing research for purchasing a used live-onboard. Haven't owned a boat larger than 19 ft. and now I'm looking at 36'+! A bit daunting.
I like a trawler style and favor a twin diesel. I need two heads favorable both with showers and I'd like to sleep 6.
Anyway got a ton of questions but just wanted to say "hey"for now. Well, off to look at a couple boats

Welcome!

We made the same upgrade last year, 20ft whaler to 37 ft trawler and have learned lots from this site. Our Atlantic has two heads with separate shower in front and combo tub in back, but that may be rare for size. The prairie sister ships have same layout, but not a lot out there - ours with galley down easily sleeps 6.

Good luck!

Welcome, Ericj!

We were in pretty much your same shoes about 18 months ago. Ended up with a 43' Gulfstar Sundeck Trawler from 1974. Have found it to be all the boat we were hoping for, and more. If you haven't looked at Gulfstars yet, you might want to include them in your search. (They also made a 36' that's just a little brother of the 43'.)
