Looking for a Willard 30

Looking for a Willard 30 of the Vega series or a Fales trawler of similar style. Prefer the Vega Nomad variant, but am open to options, and education... Currently have a stupendously great Nimble Nomad, but want a deeper keel/more weight (plus I donít need to trailer a boat, which is a great unused plus for the Nimble). I desire something a bit heavier for rough water and wind. I keep my boats in the water and run year round. In MD, but I suppose west coast may work out for sourcing a boat, with transport. New to the forum, but long time sailor and learning motoring with ten years Trawlering. Thank you!

slacey,
You've come to a good place but I sold Willy 5-7 days ago.
Keep checking this post as many here on TF don't post much.
There may be another one out there. Try Craig's List.

Yep, I found out I'm a day late and a dollar short, with regard to Willy! Haha!
Great-looking trawler, that.
I will ping the Willard OG. Good idea, and thank you!

I beleive these are still for sale:

https://willardboatowners.groups.io/...2C0%2C84306087


The owner of a Vega near me in Port Aransas, TX also has one he might be selling, but I cannot find the message.
