Still Boat shopping

Going to the Seattle Boat Show next week. In addition to learning some things while there plan to look at a few boats.

Anyone have any input on North Pacific trawler-52' late 2000's
or Eagle Pilothouse (TransPac-I think) in same size early 2000 vintage?

I know they are China built boats but most are nowadays, aren't they?

Thanks
Ken

I have been on the NP 52. Pretty decent vessel but a cramped ER.

In both cases it comes down to condition and price. While Eagle has been suffering financially in the past decade, NP has flourished, if that means anything.

No.

But that also doesn't mean there's anything wrong with a China built boat.
