Last year we bought a 2006 Symbol 45 in Baltimore, cruised it to Fort Lauderdale, loaded it on a yacht carrier which carried it thru the Panama Canal and up the west coast to Victoria on Vancouver Island. From there we cruised it down thru the Canadian Gulf Islands and the San Juan Islands (both cruising heaven). Our home Port is Edmonds WA, about 15 miles north of Seattle.
The Symbol is a “fast pilot house trawler” powered by twin Yanmar 440s. Cruises at 8-14 knots and will go 18 wot. It’s a two stateroom, two head work of art with incredibly beautiful woodwork. She was built in the same yards that built Ocean Alexanders and other fine yachts. She is the third boat for us in the last four years and we are still looking for the perfect boat.
Right now she’s for sale ($450,000) with newly expanded battery bank, inverter, battery monitor and galvanic isolator.
I’ll post the Yacht World listing as soon as it is available if it lasts that long (two showings in one day by just word of mouth).
If anyone is interested, you can private message me.
