$359,000- Ready to cruise.

A hard to find modern classic that is so easy to love!

I recently purchased my dream boat, a 2004 Symbol 45 Pilot House Trawler in SE Florida. THEN- reality set in.

I've never operated a 45 foot trawler and she has so many cool bells and whistles on her, I'm just not accomplished enough to feel comfortable at the helm. OOPS. So, she is back on the market with lots of cool extras for luxurious, live- aboard cruising.

- Caterpillar 3126 B engine - Turbocharged 7.2L inline 6 cycle, 3762 Hours - Naiad Stabilizers
- Gulf Coast Filters fuel polishing system
- Solar Panels
- Washer/Dryer/Trash Compactor/Central Vac System
- KVH TV 1 dual set satellite system
- Plenty of storage

Dot Calm is a single engine, multi thruster equipped Symbol 45 Pilot House built in 2003. She is “Ready to Go” after performing brilliantly on a recent sea trial for survey. She is a beautiful two cabin, two head Symbol designed by Jack Sarin to carry you in comfort with great performance characteristics. If you are looking for a very well cared for Trawler ,“Ready to Go”, you must see Dot Calm. She is based in Cocoa, FL.

Master stateroom forward with island queen berth - gas struts lift berth with storage under, innerspring mattress with memory foam topper, suite head with separate stall shower with seat, electric toilet with fresh water flush, vanity with hamper, his/hers cedar lined hanging lockers, five large drawers, three large storage cabinets and three stainless steel port lights with screens and stainless steel hatch. Guest stateroom aft to port has a double berth, cedar lined hanging locker, drawers and two stainless steel port lights with screens. Across the companionway to starboard is the guest head with vanity, sink, electric toilet with fresh water flush and stall shower with seat. Up three step to the salon with L-settee with storage under, deep foam Ultrasuede cushions, hi-lo table with teak/burlwood high gloss finish top, bar and storage, full entertainment center, washer/dryer expertly concealed in a teak cabinet, two chairs, and French doors which open to the large covered aft deck. Galley is forward and to port. Up three steps to the pilothouse which features a raised L settee with storage under, Ultrasuede cushions, burlwood and teak table, center-line helm and Aritex door to the side decks for easy line handling. Teak interior is beautiful and the layout is exceptional. Warm and cozy!

Monk36, don't mean to pry too much, but is the sale of your boat driven more by economics instead of fear/discomfort with operating it? Everyone is a bit intimidated at first when jumping up in size a great amount. This is a condition that is very, very easy to get over with some professional training sessions.

Perhaps you and the family haven't had enough enjoyable experiences with her yet. Why don't you motor up here to Titusville and watch the next space launch up close and personal. Enjoy the gorgeous Florida winter weather that has started setting in finally.

Of course if portfolio/financial conditions have changed, then that's another story.

BTW, the head is really nice. Love the strong vertical grain patterns.

It’s simple. The larger vessel is a lot more responsibility and $$$$.
I think we will charter in Abacos and BVIs with family once Covid risks dwindle.

Thud is my 12th boat. Ready for a break.

Monk 36, you didn`t buy the boat without a lot of thought, and it seems a good boat. To resell seems so drastic. Is there anything you can do to get to feel comfortable at the helm? Hiring a skipper for some training, to look over your shoulder, to coach,and help you gain confidence. Maybe other things changed which are none of our business, but to reverse a process which must have involved much thought and planning seems questionable.
Whatever you do,I hope it works out well for you.

Going back through the messages.....
You can run the boat, you and your wife.
You may feel more comfortable with a training captain for a few days.
You have a fantastic boat at a fantastic price. Dont be in a hurry to sell the boat.

Thanks for your comments . Bottom line- too damn much work. I just retired after working 50+ years and I want to shed responsibilities and expenses.
Ready to charter with a Captain and my family somewhere chill post Covid than deal with upkeep, insurance, slip, maintenance, etc. I have had many boats and I know I could have mastered the 45 as well...just don’t want to put the work into it. Someone else deserves her more than me...someone who knows seamanship and maintenance. I’m just an old TV anchor, DJ, and sales guy who wants to be lazy for once.
Make sense now everyone?

This yacht is located in the marina that surrounds my office building. Moonstruck was moored close by her for years. Dot Calm is in bristol condition. I have seen her being maintained by the previous owner. I do not know Monk36 and I no longer berth Moonstruck at this marina. Monk36 is making a wise decision that many others should have made sooner after realizing they wanted or needed to change plans. Too often owners wait longer than they should and have much regret. If you are looking for a great boat for a couple Dot Calm should be on your short list. She is definitely worth a serious look. If I was downsizing I would give her serious consideration. Someone please contact me if they have a nice 58' LRC they want to part with! The more I look at boats for sale the more I want to keep Moonstruck!

As I write you from my hammock in Central America, I totally understand and agree 100% =) As we evolve in life often times so too do our priorities, a 45 footer is a big nut every month and if you are not planning a tour, chartering is the way to go, both in terms of economics and convenience. Good luck with the sale, she's a beauty and I'm sure someone will snap her up and in the meantime, sit back and enjoy a nice old Flor de Caa splashed over the rocks and, might I recommend a good hammock as well. Con gusto

What is the underbody like? Does it have a full keel with the propeller turning in an aperture?

Thanks for the kind words about Dot Calm. The previous owner who recently passed won my respect without ever meeting him. He kept the boat, then named B&B, in impeccable condition and could dock her with no crew or marina staff.

Have several offers and looking forward to passing this gem to someone who can continue to love her back😎

Hope you find the boat you are looking for.
