Bristol Trawler "Islander" for sale

Islander is a well maintained 1973 Bristol 42 Trawler for sale in Belfast, Maine. Designed by the highly regarded naval architectural firm, Eldridge-McGinnis, this full displacement trawler is both beautiful inside and out, with high sides, walk around decks and a large deckhouse. She not only appears seaworthy, she is a fully equipped, serious cruiser. Bristol 42’ trawlers are heavily built of hand–laid fiberglass, display a very graceful sheer and a deep, prop protecting keel. Her unusual round bilges make for a very comfortable ride, huge tank capacities, a large engine room, and less snap roll in a seaway than with hard chined trawlers. These round bilged trawlers are only found among other high-end brands like Selenes, Kady Krogens and Nordhavns.

Islander features include a forward and aft berth, each with private sink and washroom, a very user-friendly galley, three deck levels – a picnic table on the mid aft deck and seating for 8 on the upper helm area. Her mast supports a steadying sail, useful when seas are on the beam. The current owners have taken Islander south to the Keys and she is ready for the Loop, or wherever your interests take her. She is a full displacement, single screw trawler powered by a naturally aspirated, Caterpillar 210 HP engine. Bombproof!

She remains in her covered storage until the first week of June. If you'd like to arrange a look, us know. We'll post the news here as soon as it is available to view.

Bristol Trawler Islander Owner Info

I'm the third owner, and have had "Islander" since 2004. She is a great boat, and we've had her from the Bay of Fundy (Canada) down to the Florida keys. One child is in AK, and the other in Seattle. They're not coming back, so it seems we'll have to head that way, find something out that way. Thanks for your interest!

We're selling it after many years because our son moved to Seattle, and our daughter to AK. Maybe get something out your way!
