1988 41' Tiger Marine

Low hours on the 135 HP Perkins, any red flags on this boat?

This is a Taiwan boat and should be surveyed by an surveyor experienced with these hulls.

Some are great and others are not - even within the same name (ie Tiger)

You may or may not know this but it is a DeFever designed boat. It also goes by the name of the DeFever Passagemaker 41. That may help broaden your search.

Well, regardless of the name, of all the Taiwanese Trawlers I have looked at, this is unique, again no teak on the decks, very solid construction, quality stainless throughout, can't find anything to compare against

Thanks Mike, it will be surveyed, spent time with the owner, am being cautious, especially with the advice. They are not selling it as anything but a Tiger Marine

So there are "Passagemeakers" built by Jensen Marine in the USA.

Then there are DeFever 41s that were built legally under lisence in Taiwan.

And then the Tiger 41 which is a Defever knockoff???
