• Trawler Forum Classified Posting Guidelines
    • We expect ads placed to be related to the topic of this forum.
    • Ads that are inactive for 180 days or longer may be moved to the Classified Archive and locked. Ads may be relisted if the item is still current. Alternatively, owners may contact a Moderator to reinstate an archived ad.
    • The Classified section is for advertising, members are asked to refrain from posting discussions to a Classified Ad. Please start a discussion thread or PM the owner for discussions.
    • Do not hijack another member's ad by posting unsolicited commentary. Example: if a member has posted an ad offering an anchor for sale, don't add a post to his thread stating that you have an anchor you'd like to get rid of also. Posts deemed as unsolicited commentary may be removed.
    • For your own security, do NOT include your e-mail or phone number in your ad. Instead request that interested parties contact you via PM (private message) to provide owners contact info.
    • Brokers, Dealers, or those with a commercial interest in a sale are prohibited from posting in Classifieds.
    • Only Trawler Forum Commercial Members may post ads in the Commercial section. You must be a designated Commercial Member to start threads in this section of the forum. (Contact a moderator if you have questions about this)
    • Don't post links to commercial sites where you are also offering the boat, such as eBay, Craigslist or Yachtworld, etc. unless it contains a more in-depth description, additional information or pictures.
    • Place only one ad per item (you may repost only when your ad has expired and been removed).
    For Sale ads MUST include:
    • Asking price
    • Location
    • A Basic Description
    • Clear statement whether you are the owner or non-owner (posting for friend, relative, or acquaintance)
    • Don't forget to select: FOR SALE, WANTED or FREE in the Title block.
    All ads should also include ALL the following:
    • Pertinent maintenance and condition information
    • Exterior picture or pictures

  • Avoid Scams.

    Our classifieds are free and anyone registered here is welcome to post an ad.
    Be aware that there are unscrupulous folks out there. Avoid any interaction that seems odd to you or �feels� wrong. Inquiries from unknown buyers, buyers �agents� and other non-traditional approaches should be treated with extreme caution.

    Beware of unsolicited contacts offering to put you in touch with someone else who is buying or selling via e-mail or text.

    Do not post your e-mail address or phone number in a classifieds ad.

    Hints that you may be dealing with a Scammer:
    • Seller or Buyer approaches you via a direct email or PM and then steers you to an off-site communication method (text or email).
    • No posts or very few forum posts.
    • Recent forum membership
    • Insists on conducting negotiations via email or text rather than PM
    • Requires payment via Bank Transfer, BitCoin/CryptoCurrency, WesternUnion or other unsecured method.
    • Buyer or Seller suggests Paypal "Friends and Family" payment. Paypal is a good way to arrange payment but an invoice for goods and services should be used rather than "Friends and Family". "Friends and Family" avoids fees BUT there is no recourse if the transaction runs aground. Friends and Family is for gifts only. There is no protection for Friends and Family transactions, so never ever use it to buy something.
    • Declines to allow viewing the item before proceeding with the transaction.

72' Alloy trawler is back in the market

The friendliest place on the web for anyone who enjoys boating.
If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
"This maybe rude. If so I apologize. It looks like a well maintained, thoughtfully outfitted and beautiful boat. I would think it would sell very quickly at a good price for the seller. Why do you think that hasn’t happened? If I was in your area I’d give serious thought to buying her. Have you gotten any feedback suggesting why?"

Further to this comment from HC, while this boat is way too big for me, it looks like a beautiful, well-built, capable and thoroughly maintained vessel. Two things that may be making a sale difficult, just in my opinion of course:
1) I looked on the AB Yacht site, but I couldnt find the listing for your boat. However, most of the yachts they did have listed were selling for many millions of euros/dollars, so maybe this is not the best site for you? They had a pricing filter, but it went up to 80 million euros(!), and when I slid it down to a maximum of $500,000 it indicated nothing listed under that price. Perhaps a different site or broker would be targeting more likely buyers.
2) For buyers here in North America, traveling to Europe to see a boat makes an extra complication, and I also guess that the electric systems on your boat are 50 cycle, which would complicate service and replacements on this side of the ocean.
Although I have never sold a boat close to the size of yours, I know how difficult it can be to find a buyer for a custom-built boat, but I wish you success.
Thanks for you return
For AByacjt on the first page 'motor boat' you have'filter by model type' scrawl down,it is by alphabetic, to T : Trawler Pacific 72 and clic on .it is open.
For the sale of à one off it dépend
For example our former Long Cours 62 we found 3 potential buyers, even one of them want make an artic expédition with her he finally try we à smaller boat Arktika.
For our Vietnamiese baby we got...in one month 115 inquiries, four of them was buyers who fly from France to HK !
All this 3 boat Oaristys, Long-Cours 62 and Pacific 72 have the same well know (in France) architect for the hull line Joubert- Nivelt.
For the 220/50 hertz don't think it was à big issue ? We had in France à Cheoy Lee 53 in...110/60hetrz Just need à "converter" on the power line.

Much depends on the design of the boat and size. As stated for your design and size Al is a better choice.
If looking at a different design , let’s say a Bering, the expense of Al v Fe would favor Fe and would not improve performance nor efficiency to a significant degree if done in Al. Good NAs design with the hull material in mind from the get go.
Some more detail concerning our Pacific 72 :
