Hi there...we are in the midwest on the Mississippi River and own a 32 ' power crusier and we are trying to sell it. It just got pulled out of the river and being stored for the winter. Not a good time for selling. My husband and I have a dream of doing the loop and live a board when retirement comes in a few years. We like the trawler idea, just not to many in our neck of the woods. We have looked at a 39' mainship trawler with diesel engines. It said deisel package. We are not real familiar with diesel engines, but know we would like to go that way for gas prices. This twaler is a 1994 mainship$139,000 owner passed away and a broker has it. Seems in good shape, about 2,000 hours on engines? We walked on it and looked inside. Broker couldn't make it so boat neighbor let us look at it...was in the river at the time. It was kept in a nice Marina near us and under cover. My nephew has a carver and he says he has seen it being driven. It gets stored inside for the winter. So now we want to see the hull.
Does anyone know the make of this trawler..any issues or concerns? Suggestions for new trawler owners.
