Small trawler

Just sold my boat and am boatless for the first time in26 years!
Looking for a small trawler in the Pacific Northwest.
Must be 34 feet max. LOA including swim grid, etc.
single diesel preferred.
Anybody got any leads, other than what's on Yachtworld?
Appreciate any help.

Thanks but that's pretty far to travel (we're in Victoria B.C.).

I suggest looking for either a 34 Tolly or a 36 Uniflite, Both are avail sound Pufer Sound for ~30 ie less ... gas. If you can fund either WU diesels ... GI for it or, if you can afford the repower do that.

Thanks for the suggestions.
I am familiar with both boats but neither will work.
Our slip at the club is 34' LOA and there's a 5 year wait list for anything larger.
Most boats calling themselves a "34", like the CHBs, Tolly's, Unifllites, etc. are generally at least 2' or more longer by the time you measure the swim grid, the anchor platform and any other hanging equipment.
I like the Tollycraft 30 S but they all seem to have twin gas engines. A Campion 30, Prairie 29 or one of the smaller Taiwan trawlers such as the Tung Hwa 30 would all work as they are under 34 even with a dinghy on the grid. Locally available (i.e. B.C. or WA state) would be far preferable unless it's a great deal that warrants extra travel and shipping.
We're still looking and welcome any suggestions!

I'm assuming that you have no interest in the Ennos Sapphire 32 that I PM'd you about. It would fit your berth and is relatively local in Campbell River.

This is the same reason I chose the Tung Hwa Clipper. It fit in a 30' covered slip (hundreds less than the next size up). Good luck in your search, there are a few of us Tung hwa's out there. Island Gypsy has a 30' as well and something you should keep in mind.

BTW, there is a decent shape IG in LaConner. Here is the link http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/boa/4019496128.html

Conrad,
I got your PM regarding the Ennos. I don't know much about them and haven't found much on line. Do you have any more info or pictures of your boat?
And yes, Campbell River is definitely in my definition of local!

Adelaide,
We're heading to Annacortes/LaConer this afternoon and intend on looking at her if I can get hold of the fellow.
Thanks,

You might look at the sundowner tug out of production for several years. - this is a 30' raised pilothouse vessel. should fit the slip.

Have fun, there is a little restaurant called the 'Tavern' on the water in Laconner with great food (fish and chips sandwiches etc...). It's not fancy..... Its a bar along the street/restaurant in the back, along the channel. It's also very reasonable. Enjoy your search.

If you like the type you could go w a Willard 30 w a short bow pulpit and put stern davits on and have a really nice dinghy.
I'd do it but I don't like bow pulpits and we have no extensions. That means we can rent a 30' slip. And we do.

Guru, Thanks for asking. Not being cute here, but I am selling for personal and family reasons which are private. Love the boat. New to this forum. Not sure I'm doing everything right. Gary

Hi Mosey,

Just read your post so I may be a little late, but...I have a Prairie/29 on the other side of Georgia Strait if you are still interested.

Found Her!

After being boatless for over 8 months we found our new baby.
She's a 1990 Barry Farrell designed West Coast Trawler.
For those not familiar with Farrell's boats there are literally hundreds of Farrell designed commercial fishboats of all sizes on the West Coast, particularly in B.C..
"Due West" was never a fish boat but was built as a a cruiser, but built LIKE a fishboat; i.e. tough and no B.S.
There's a ton of projects to get her to where I want her but that's part of the fun, isn't it?
Thanks to everyone who posted and sent private messages.
