We saw this vessel's near twin in Desolation Sound this past summer. I asked this guy if it was a DeFever design. He blanched but said something like "even better." CL has made some nice vessels over the years and being a Garden design could be a real find.

If I was in the market for a less that $200K fifty foot trawler I'd be all over this. But condition, old Cat engine and prior upkeep is the key, a visit or two would answer these questions.

I can assure you, that the boat is mechanically and cosmetically in absolute
excellent condition.
Due to constant upgrades and improvements she definitely defies her age.
We just spent this summer 9 weeks with her in the Abaco's and everything
worked 100%.
She is definitely cruise ready!

That does look like something special, all right. I wish my boat budget looked equally robust!

Good luck with your sale, German Cruiser - hope Mamacocha finds an appreciative new owner.

May I suggest that buyers get pre qualified for financing prior to going boat shopping if they need financing to purchase a boat. My broker assures me that it's an easy process that can be done online and seldom does the age of the vessel have any bearing on the lenders decision.

Very nice boat indeed and seems in great condition for its age. Regarding the engine, probably be best to pull the Cat, sell it, and replace with a 85-100 hp rebuilt engine. Then it would be powered properly for a displacement cruiser.

Wow, thats a pretty bold statement for a well maintained, outfitted cruiser. That engine would easily have another 20,000 hours of operation in the service shes in. I wouldn't change her out. A cat engine survey would alleviate any fears. What do you hope to gain on an engine swap? What do you think the payback time would be?

Sailer of Fortune you are right.
In MHO based on almost 15 years of operating the boat, Mamacocha's engine is indeed running very good, starting everytime after just one second, no smoke at all, no oil consumption and no oil leaks either. I'm convinced that this Caterpillar will give many,
many years of reliable and economic operation for the new owner in the future.

Yup, a 4200 RPM VW diesel is just what this vessel needs

May I insist, this Cheoy Lee does not need another engine, the Caterpillar is just
fine. Why should one fix a thing which ain't broke?

Greetings,
Mr. GC. "Why should one fix a thing which ain't broke?" Well, that appears to be common amongst some members regarding certain subjects. I suspect the Cat in your vessel is considered to be way too large and above mentioned members are attempting to make your vessel "better". I am NOT one of those members and feel you have a beautiful vessel which should provide years of faithful service to her new owners just as she is.

If you read carefully, you will note that the premise of Sunchaser's statement "But condition, old Cat engine" was that the PRESUMPTION was that the engine was old, therefore worn out. If that were true then the offered suggestion was that instead of rebuilding it, since the boat is overpowered, just to replace it with a correctly sized engine.

This is Trawlerforum and pretty much everyone here knows that a pure displacement cruiser does not require 8+ hp per ton. Old mechanical engines don't like being driven at 20% engine load, as the OP stated.

Simple logic.

I did carefully read this in the pasted guidelines...
