Exclamation 30' Trawler wanted

I am looking for a Willard Vega trawler, either a Nomad, Voyager, Mk IV, or PH model, with a bridge. I am on the East coast but will consider trucking here if worth it! If anyone has another alternative to the Willards, you know what I like, so please advise me.
Thank you
Bruce

Bruce, do not neglect searching for a "Fales". They are essentially the same boat.

Thank you all, but 30' is my limit. I saw them & the one still for sale is too much of a project boat for me & I prefer the "Nomad" version.

1Sailor,
I have a 30' Nomad.
If you have any questions I'll try and help.
Ideally find a boat w a newer engine and fuel tanks. I did'nt but now that I have installed new engine and tanks ......
I actually prefer the Voyager but I liked Willy when I saw her. The Voyager has a smaller aft cockpit though. Also make sure the aft bulkhead (fwd end of lazerette) is straight. If there's corrosion in the ballast it's a big problem. Check around windows for soft wood .. rot.

They are propperly driven at about exactly 6.25 knots by 18 to 20hp depending on bottom growth and weight of boat. 30hp total is all that you'll ever need.
