40' Marine Trader Sedan 1978- $35k

This is a great boat, but it's not for everyone. If you're looking for a shiny, maintenance free all restored boat, just stop reading and search elsewhere. This boat needs work, and will probably always need work. That's the nature of the 70's vintage Taiwanese trawlers. This boat is afloat and in good mechanical condition, but if maintenance scares you, this isn't the boat for you.

I lived aboard for about 16 years, and cruised up & down the ICW many times. I'm selling due to new job and now living on land. Boat is in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Details, equipment and lots of pictures at this link:

question

Nice looking boat!

I'm curious, you mentioned on your web site, "She's a bit of a dog in rough weather, so I plan my trips to be in port when the wind blows."

Is that because it could use more power, the hull design, or a lot of boat above the water line that tends to be blown around?

Well, the boat has a pretty good snap roll, and tends to get slowed down going straight into head seas. It's probably due to one the boat's assets, which is her large 13'6" beam.

I've been puttering around in my 76 D/C MT going on 17 years these are fine coastal cruisers and oh so easy to work on.

Funny everyone complains about the snap roll but my deep V friends can't believe how nice she rides in choppy conditions. The Lehman will outlast you.

Hope you get a good price there is a very active chb forum on yahoo.
