54' Canoe Stern Trawler by Sparkman & Stephens

I saw this boat on trawler forum before I became her 3rd owner. I knew I had to have her as soon as I saw her lines, that she was US built and Fiberglass Construction. I've enjoyed this boat for long range cruising, she is well accommodated and very well behaved. I'm giving the fsbo route a go so please feel free to message me directly if you are interested in information. I'm currently working my way up through NE US via C&D, NYC, Long Island and on to Cape Cod so perhaps a city near you.

Please see link below for photos and info:

She's a beaut, Clark!

Seriously. Very nice. Is she stabilized? I like my drinks stable. ��

She has considerably less roll than most fellow boaters I see when anchored. She does not have active stabilization, only "bilge keels". The link to the sales ad has pics, they are substantial, about 22' long.

Beautiful boat! My wife approves! We are huddled inside our little boat in Marsh Harbour dodging rain storms.

This is a lot of boat for $197,000. And capable of doing the canal to the other coast for you left coasters.

Keep the bilge keels and add the smallest of gyro stabilizers. Beautiful boat, lucky for me she's not in Australia.

Looks really nice; love the lines. How much does she draw? Is the 18’ air clearance with the mast down?

I can't decide which word to use to describe this vessel.

A. Awesome
B. Incredible
C. Gorgeous

So I think I'll add D. All the Above!

It's so nice nobody has said anything about the lack of engine room photos!

To say the ad is lacking details would be a understatement!

Lovely looking vessel but as a full time cruiser/live aboard who very rarely uses a marina, I always wonder how you get out of the water if swimming and get out of the dinghy with groceries, dinghy fuel/gas bottles etc.

Climbing up a ladder from a bouncing dinghy onto a rolling boat is not grand. But my cousin on his old sailboat built a small 2ft square platform that folded down on his side boarding ladder, just above water height. Basically a portable swim platform.


I like side platforms - less motion. Am getting tired of boarding after a dive from the stern, which is always bouncing up and down even at anchor.

She draws 4’ 6” and the air draft is 18’8” with mast up but both VHF antennas folded down.

I have a rigid boarding ladder with fold down platform that does help with the comfort of boarding the dink. I have my 70 year old mom on board and she is managing fine with something solid. I will get a photo of the arrangement (when not underway and in heavy fog) and post it.

In my experience if the waves are bad enough to make boarding the dink an issue then its not dink weather. And in that kind of weather boats that have swim platforms are seeing their platform awash. Or they are fighting to keep the dink from going inder the platform. My real world experience on such matters.

Is the tankage in the ad correct? 450 fuel and 500 water? How much does she displace and what's the draft?
