why would you think the add is a scam? just call and get a feel from the seller. Not a huge market for basically home made small steel boats.

Jack - not suggesting it's a scam - but pretty interesting, particularly at $1k/ft. Not my cup of tea.

Agreed! Not my cup of tea either. The thing that scares me is that its been on CL for at least a year...Somethings amiss. either condition or ownership.

It seems odd to spend $160k to build a boat, not use it, and sell it for $35k.

I believe Lolo is a city in Montana where the boat is located.

Reduced from $50K

Looks like a wet head and no mention of a generator. Guess it needs to be expanded to 40 ft to fit all that in.

No mention of the hull plate thickness.

I guess the vertical plate on the swim platform is for the emergency get home outboard?????

Over all, it is an interesting looking entry level trawler. It will make someone very happy, especially at that price.

Did you see the outboard bracket on the swim platform?

Edit; looks like OldDan beat me to it...

What's a LOLO? I see it may be the acronym for "Lift-On Lift-Off", but I still don't get it. Buyer has to furnish the site lift and transport?
Lolo = Place near Missoula in Montana.

Met this nice young fellow this past weekend at a YC outstation. He had come over from Vancouver in his new Loki : https://www.lokiboats.com/
very cool boat. 32ft, 600 hp, 50 knots, head and 1 bunk below, galley optional, 4 bucket seats, beautiful fit and finish, very expensive.
The Co is after the Mega Yacht tender market.
Nice compliment to a trawler. Of course you need both.

It would be more attractive and saleable if the roof was painted bright yellow.

I like it but I would have done the interior a little differently along with the windows. I like that they put a outboard bracket right in the center of the swim platform. They seem to be prepared to drop the dink motor on when the westy gave out.

On the LOLO boat,

there was an interested TF party who either had it under contract or almost did some months ago.


the thread is in the archive somewhere.


I think the home made aspect and the used motor decided against pursuing it.


It has been on craigslist for a couple of years on and off.

Come on guys, haven't you ever been to a bar and met a woman name Lolo?
You might be milling out on a real experience. WINK WINK

Remember the song, "Whtever Lolo wants, Lolo gets......"

I believe that's Lola in the song not Lolo.


I think the engine and uncertainty about the build is why many look but won't touch that boat. The V birth is extremely tight and may be off-putting to some. It is to me. They don't have any aft cabin pics on CL. Then the boat will have to be transported at great costs.

Ben, you caught me. LOL
Now that I think about it, maybe the name of the woman in the bar was Lola?

I am not a fan of stern drives, but if you like the boat and want an inboard and are tolerant of stern drives, that is a good option. The VP D4 is a proven, reliable marine engine, though the 600 hp outboards will get you a higher top end.
I don't know if the space in the ER is the limiting factor to the size of inboard, but I know the space below fwd is limited to storage or one single bunk, head and minimal other stuff, so I would expect the space aft to be similarly limited.
Really just a yacht tender. One needs a proper trawler to go with it.

Sigh...

Went down to MK Bay marina for a sunset dinghy ride here in Kitimat, BC, and saw this 'wipe the drool off your chin' Michael Kasten design...Moresby Mist out of Vancouver;
