Our ideal boat would be an inexpensive 34-35 foot, single screw, diesel, bow thruster, full displacement trawler with one stateroom, a covered cockpit, an isinglass enclosed pilot house, older but well maintained, little exterior teak, outfitted and ready for long trips (i.e. generator and inverter) with many days spent swinging on the hook, and in Florida. Am I hallucinating? Know any boats that fit that description?
Sounds like a 34' Marine Trader. Everything you need and nothing you don't.
