54' Steel Dutch built Vripack trawler in FL

Lady Galathea arrived at Bradford Marine in Fort Lauderdale this week, a twin screw 54' steel passagemaker. Built at Spiroships in Holland to a Vripack design in 1993. Steel hull, aluminum superstructure, with fresh paint only a year ago. Powered with twin 145 hp Iveco naturally aspirated diesels with 3400 hours. Hydraulic bow thruster, Koop Nautic Stabilizers, diesel furnace, three staterooms, teak interior, lots of updates.
The radar arch is on a hinge for the loop and at 54 feet with 15 beam it is a great size for a couple to handle with ease.
The boat is listed with another broker in my office but of course contact me 954-801-3645 and full details are now on YachtWorld -1993 54' Vripack.
I am still learning about the systems and features about the boat. There is a saying about larger yachts that applies here, " If it aint Dutch, it aint much."

How do those Koop stabilizers work? They look strange.

The Koop stabilizer system is very common on commercial fish boats in Europe. The spinning cyl does not get in the way of nets and such. She also has a 2 speed hydraulic bow thruster. Quiet as a mouse underway. All fresh exterior paint (2 years or less?)

Why does a Dutchman wear wooden shoes? Too keep the woodpeckers away from his head.

I had to learn a retort for "if it ain't Dutch it ain't much", as I married my dutch sweetheart 32 years ago. She is the best that has ever happened to me.

Imagine how much better your life would be with her and this Dutch Yacht!

So the rollers mounted on the transom are hooked up the same system active fin stabilizers are with a gyro and hydraulics. Instead of moving a fin the system spins the roller that needs to dampen the roll faster than the passive side. Spinning roller creates a vortex... no holes in the hull like a big old fin either

Are those roller stabilizers as effective as active fins?

And does anyone make parts for them and work on them?

I ran this particular boat but she is so stiff and the sea state calm it was not a good test. The wake from a Hatteras 116 running on top did not move her.
Parts are a non issue. Koopnautic simple

This boat will be at Trawler Fest In Riviera Beach, Florida Jan 28th. Listing broker from Bradford Marine, Iain Lawrie will be on board, I will not be there. Stop by and take a look, this boat may win the Peoples Choice Award.

I've been on this boat several years ago. Even the towel holders were heated! It's really nice!

Almost two years later the asking price for this boat is now $495,000. The seller will not lower the asking price any more but really wants to sell the boat. You will have to give me a call at 954-377-3900, which is my office number, for me to verbally suggest an offer amount to you.
The boat was hauled recently for fresh bottom paint.

It is probably too slow for us. We are looking at a 54 Grand Banks and a 58 Marlow presently. I really like the boat we have now but we may just show up with a new boat for Ft Pierce, Watfa will still cook and serve alcohol but we must keep Ted out of the engine room because he may feel he has to redo his spotless ER. LOL. We are headed for a few weeks in the Keys, mostly at anchor, and then we have to visit the two boat for a comparison.

BTW we are scouting for some PBR for Ft Pierce. 😁

My engine room will likely need some attention after 6 or 7K miles this year, so you have no worries.

Think I can handle the PBR acquisitioning. Fort Myers seems to be well stocked in bottles.

Actually she hasn't been washed in over a month. Been too busy cruising and sightseeing. Waiting for a good rain day to give her a bath. Still manage to find time for a beer though.
