Have just bought my first trawler too
For several reasons I had to abandon the plan to buy a Trawler in the US to complete the Great Loop. Amongst others one reason was, that I would have faced enormous problems bringing and registering her to Europe, but now I am as excited as one can be. Just completed purchase of a 48 Cheoy Lee 1979 with a four ! Cabin Layout. Sleeps eleven! MC aft with Queen and ensuite shower and Toilet 1 x 4 bunks 2 x 2 one toilet and showe and one crew with own wc. 2xDaewoo 250 HP of 2010 with less than 600 hrs. All new wiring in 2010, 16 kW Generator Enormous Flybridge, Etc etc. she's been on the dry for 3 years and will get a refit over the next six months. Homeport Portirosa / Sicily.
The superstructure will repainted, woodwork and teak sandblasted, Underwater stipped down to gelcoat and AF applied. New canvas etc.
will use her as live a board, cruising the Med and later to Great Britain and the Nordics from there back via Rhine/Danube/Black Sea to Sicily.
