Small trawler wanted, FL or close.

I am looking for a small trawler with max. 3' 6" draft, single diesel.
The Prairie 29 is a good example but I will look at others. Must be in good condition, no project please. I am cash buyer and serious.
Some preferences: generator and AC, autopilot.
Location: Florida east cost (Vero Beach) but I can pick up in other locations in SE US.

I have a 2008 41' Island Packet trawler for sale listed in the classified section. It sounds bigger than what you might want but it's not really-- LWL is like 35'. Low air draft and wide side decks make it easy to single hand. All updated electronics. Ready to go. 3'8" draft with full protected keel.

Thank you. Very nice but much larger than what I have in mind.
I am downsizing, coming from a 41 footer that I never took out because it was too much boat.

Thank you but I should refine my request. I am looking for a small trawler. By small, I mean 30' max.
Also, budget is 50K max. Most Prairie 29's go for 30K or less.
34 or 36 is too big, sorry.

I am not the owner of the Swift 34. That was somebody else proposing his boat for sale.

My Swift 34

You can contact me at jhwilson96@aol.com and I can then forward you pictures and the price. A new one equipped as mine is $430,000. Mine is exactly 1 year old, and has 400 hours (just broken in). It has the Great Loop package and the latest Raymarine electronics both in the helm and on the bridge. The helm has the E127 (larger unit) and it has Navionics Gold. It has the bug screen package, radar, all of the cushions, and is in perfect condition. Autopilots both helms, stereo throughout, large televisions in the master and in the salon, and the Beneteau mooring package (which features 80' heavy chain, 160 feet of heavy rode, and a great anchor (Beneteau proprietary anchor) with windlass. It also has an AB 9.5 dinghy with davits on the bridge, a bimini top and a 15 hp Yamaha if that is of interest to you, and it has trick davits installed on the back deck that yield the dinghy as a life boat. the engine is the Cummins 6.7 which is very quiet and fuel efficient. I have mixed emotions about selling it but my wife's health is a significant factor at this point. Contact me by email and we can talk. I am traveling a lot right now, but I see my email frequently.
