Might want to flesh out your desires a little and price range. Are you looking for wood, fiberglass, steel, or aluminum? Is turn key important or a project boat?

Letting everyone know the specific models you have in mind will at least give everyone an idea of what you are looking for. Way too vague for comment with so few details.

Greetings,
If you click on his name you can see his previous posts where he gives a bit of an outline as to what he's looking for and his budget. Still, no harm in him repeating same.

Based upon past and current discussion, WE cannot agree on the definition of a trawler.

I suggest you give us your definition and we will discuss your needs, wants and desires.
There are no doubt many opportunities for you in Florida.
May I suggest you begin with investigating the America Tug. (Me and finance company own a AT34, now called an AT36.)
ATs go all the way up to 49ft. In reality, it's a 46ft plus a swim platform.

Here is a better description of Trawler Wanted

Looking for 39-42 foot displacement fiberglass hull, single diesel engine. Single head, generator, well maintained, dinghy with motor, turn key preferred.

I would think a 39-42 would have 2 staterooms and 2 heads.
Of course if the 39-42 includes a swim platform, it's a new ballgame.

The Krogen 39,42, Nordhavn 40, Selene 40,42, Willard 40, Diesel Duck xx, and a few other one offs are the only trawlers I know of that meet all of your criteria. The displacement hull spec is the one that limits selection to this list.

There are a hundred other models that meet the other specs.

Don't be too concerned about the displacement hull spec. Some of the most popular and long lived trawlers such as the Grand Banks 42 are semi-displacement hulls. This is even when they don't have enough horsepower to push the boat much beyond displacement speed.

Displacement hull means efficiency, maybe 50% better than semi displacement hulls at slow speeds, stability particularly if ballasted, but it also means rolling. Semi-displacement hulls roll less at moderate sea states such as cruising in coastal waters.

So don't make too big a deal about semi or displacement hull types in your search.

Finally at least in the 39-42' size I wouldn't care much weather it was a single or twin. Twins fit in decently in a 42', 14+' beam hull. Not so much in smaller hulls.

Diesel Ducks are mostly steel, a few in wood, a few in aluminum. And they do not have an aft deck for fishing. The "Coot" 38 is an interesting boat - a frequent poster on this forum has one I believe.

That said, I agree 100% with David's sentiment that the displacement-criteria greatly limits the options which, depending on how you plan to use the boat may result in passing-over 100's of suitable boats.

Budget will also narrow the options. Based on your criteria, especially the single engine/stateroom/head I'd agree with DavidM - a used Kadey Krogen 39 would fit the bill for around $300K.

You can get into a KK42 in great condition for under $225K (more if you want one of the later models with a solid FRP hull).

You can go up in price points from there.

We just went through this ourselves and budget was by far the most limiting factor. Plenty of boats met our list of needs and wants but an N47/55/62/63/etc or a Selene just weren't within our our budget.

Still, we found our boat. Sharing your budget range with the community might help focus the discussion further. For us, we wanted to be under $400K all in. We bought well below that which leaves room to refit and update the way we want.

If budget is a concern, there is a very nice Willard 40 in Daytona.

But this fits the bill as well, hard to beat a kk42 for the capability or price. And you have lots of support with them.

There are a couple of Tollycraft 44 CPMY for sale that may meet your needs. Great boat for FL and Bahamas.

Why do such posts appear? Seems to me that almost everything is listed on yacht world.

Check out the 52' Californian. It is a 45' Californian with a cockpit added. I love the cockpit! It is a two stateroom boat with a galley down. The master S.R. has a tub shower combo. The forward S.R. has a shower. I bought my Californian in 2002. When I did I replaced both engines and transmissions. I replaced the heads in 2013 with Raritan Marine Elegance porcelain heads with touch control and switching between fresh and salt water. I was looking for a "trawler" at the time. When I saw this boat, its interior, lower helm, galley and the Stidd chairs on the huge flying bridge I was sold. When I need to go fast to outrun a storm I have the hp to do it. Twin 6V92 DD with less than 500 original hours. Why look at a Californian? If you like what you see come up to Cocoa to check my boat out. I am ready to sell it. I have been too busy to use it as much as I would like to and want a bigger boat now that my children have grown up and want to bring their families along. I need at least three S.R.s. Four would be ideal. In my line of work I know what boats are worth and it will not be overpriced when I do sell it. Delray is a short distance from here and you will love the area. I moved here from south FL in 1994. I spend a lot of time down there for business. I hate the traffic once I reach PGA Blvd!
