Looks great, but it will be all about it's actual condition.


BTW, it's too big to launch at the state ramp in Holderness (I spent many years in Squaw Cove).

What we found troubling after sitting on the boat for awhile, it feels small. Everything is just a little cramped or narrow. The other item is storage for long-term provisioning, we didn't feel like there was adequate storage for food, spare parts and the like."

Many offshore boats do limit the cabin width and length , so one is tossed a shorter distance in heavy weather.

If the boat feels small, and has little storage room, what did they do with the 6 ft of volume?

Thanks all - lots of insights that have adequately convinced me that it was a crazy infatuation. I'm still a few years away from the stage in my life that make trawler ownership reasonably sensible. It did make for rather fun day dreaming though! Oh well, back to researching!

I spoke to the brokers for Kadey and Nordy at the Annapolis boat show a week ago. They stated that the majority of buyers are ordering their boats with the asymmetrical deckhouses, giving an extra "26 inches of interior width." The old salt in me balks at the idea of not having full walk around decks, but in honesty I suppose it's not a bad idea. Practically we spend more time inside our boats and more time anchored, than we do working at sea.
