43' Marine Island Trader Labelle
Purchase This 43' trawler has the charm of the taiwanese boat builders of the early 80's. From the queen aft berth and cabin, twin electric heads, full kitchen with microwave, new fridge, stove and double sink--cozy kitchen nook. The salon is warm and well lit. With TV and music and speakers for both inside and outside listening. Twin helm stations with reasonably up to date electronics including Simrad autopilot, Raymarine gps/radar, newer gps A65 gps by Raymarine, and pushed thru the water by twin 3208 cat engines with 7k hrs. each. The Westerbeke generator has less wear. The sundeck is closed in by clean and clear eisenglass with roll up shades for ventilation. The Xantrex inverter allows for AC/Heat and topping off batteries. What a great liveaboard. Yes, the boat is older and has seen recent upgrades on the starboard engine ($16k)--new oil pan, hoses, impeller etc...All oil and filters changed and fuel filters as well. Cruises at 8.5 kn at 1800 rpms. 300 gal of fuel gives 900 miles of travel. But, this lady has some wetness leading to mild delamination but not loss of the boat's integrity. The fiberglass surrounding the wood structure is as strong as ever. Owners transparent about 'what she needs' and have a 2018 survey showing the list of improvements and yet still minimizing that these older cruisers had water intrusion. The windows don't leak but some areas show wear.
