Having said that, if you avoid 'gnarly weather' the boat has a fair bit of acreage topsides for repurposing proposals.
I don't think I'd discount it as good seaboat especially in comparison to most pleasure trawlers I see. Not having been on it or one like it I don't actually know but I know where they fish and to make any money it has to be a good seaboat.

I'm sure you can. What puzzles me is all those obviously successful fishermen, which would indicate many years on the water, spend hundreds of thousands of pounds to buy a boat like this that sucks as a seaboat. Why would they do that? This type of boat is seen all around Great Britain and Ireland, how could they be so stupid as to buy a poor seaboat that "slaps"? They probably wouldn't if they only had the solid opinion of someone that's never been aboard one and is currently sailing a desk.

While I appreciate the comments I already own a Leopard 38 sailing cat, very stable, no roll and very little slap. The prior post of the sale of the 2005 Endeavor 44 trawler cat was by JackS. Just trying to get a feel for the price range of this model.
Thanks

It's a Maxus 12m cat built by G Smyth boats in the UK, I assume they'd be happy to provide the answers to your questions.

It appears short of reserve buoyancy.

Yeah they do that frequently on boats made to carry heavy and varied loads. It's too bad those two hulls don't come together somewhere and widen out somehow.

Ok tough guy, what was said about seaworthiness? You started the thread "just wondering" about it as a recreation boat. Tunnel slap is annoying and most recreational guys will agree. And this desk gives me the means to buy the boat I want to buy so slide off your high horse "captain".

Gee you don't know if it has tunnel slap and you don't know if I'm a "tough guy" yet you're comfortable making both pronouncements without a shred of evidence or first hand knowledge, must be some desk? You did guess right once though, I am a "captain".

You need to Google tunnel slap, educate yourself before condemning others opinions. It has nothing to do with sea worthiness. And you can clearly see it happening in the video. Have a great night, you're a joy to speak with.

I didn't actually bring up seaworthiness in relation to your comment but thanks for clearing up an unrelated issue. And the joy is just a little extra to brighten the day, think of it as a gift given in appreciation.
