Hello, I'm a newbie to trawlers. I have owned a couple of sportfish boats both were 38' twin diesels. I had a 1981 and 1986 Bertrams.
I have bareboat chartered a 42' Grand Banks in St. Thomas in 1999 & 2000 - we had a blast each year.
I am getting interested in maybe buying a trawler so I wanted to pick the minds of some experienced yachtsmen.
My first question is which brand holds its value the best?
Second, which brand is the most maintenance friendly?
I realize that opinions will vary and that's o.k. I would just like to hear from all owners both past and present.
