Another PT owner! We are onboard "Pau Hana", a 1989 PT52 that is (I believe) a Taiwan built Cheersmen boat. She's comfortable and capable- we have the 375hp Cats under the sole, and can do 19+ knots (while draining the tanks in record time!)- but putt along at about 8 knots most of the time.

We considered the PT52 in Texas, but shied away after our broker gave us the lowdown on the selling broker...

As our boat has script on the side that reads "PT52 Overseas Trawler" does anyone know if this means Performance Trawler or Pacific Trawler?
