What are her specs?
I have lusted for her and her sister for a few years and was surprised to see her pop up on my bargain basement radar.
She's a Millkraft 60 ex prawn trawler.
18 & 1/2 ft beam, close to 7ft draft.
2 inch thick hardwood planking in hull, close enough to 60 tonne when lifted 2 weeks ago with half load of fuel and about 1000 of water.
Carries 7000 litres of diesel in 2 tanks.
around 5000 litres of fresh in 4 tanks.
In 2000 she had a new Cummins NT855 installed - has 3500 hours on it now.
In 2003 to 2006 she was chopped at the deck and turned into a twin decker and was then used as the occasional weekender. Previous owner reckons he threw $800k at her and I'd believe it.
For the last few years she has be neglected, the previous owner moved considerable distance away and she got to much for him so we took her off his hands.
Here is the last add for her
