Faster than expected we have just sold our Class A RV, so now we are ready for our next adventure.
I have decided that a sailboat was not my thing and I was told by a bunch of friends with sailboats that the best thing for me would be a trawler because of the living space and the low cost of operation of those slow revving diesel.
This being said I am looking at this the same way that I did for the RV, buy a used one not to expensive that was well maintained.
Thus now I am faced with choices in which I am not really an expert (note that I am very handy and very handy with engines also).
Need to say that we are in Canada (Montreal to be precise)
Ok so here is want I have seen up to now:
Marine Traders 36 sundecks with Ford 135, Perkings 135 and Cummins 210
I kind of prefer the Marine Trader Sundecks for the outside living space see the ones I have spotted:
1990 Marine Trader 36 Hardtop Sundeck Trawler Power Boat For Sale -
1986 oceania Sundeck Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com
Now to make my life more difficult I have found that Bayliner’s 3270 and 3288 (I know they are smaller) powered by twin Hino’s are apparently a very good option.
Finally the whole point of the boat is to enjoy weekends around (Montreal,Lake Champlain) and after to go further for a long vacation down to NYC, Mass etc..
Please give me a hand, budget wise I would like to keep it under 50,000
