1987 CHB Seamaster Trawler in Nashville, Tennessee

Stock #152678

A classic 1987 CHB Seamaster 48' Live Aboard Trawler that is presently used as the owners home cruising the Cumberland River and the loop!

This beautiful live aboard is still active and moving around as we speak! Ask for it's current location yet the photos and video are current and show the vessels current condition!

The Dual Caterpillar 3208TA Inboard 375hp diesel engines were completely rebuilt in 2003 and are as strong as ever and running great, according to the owner who depends on them daily.

Dinghy is included and is a 2016 West Marine 10' Polyethylene with a LEHR LP5.0S propane motor purchased new in 2015!! Bottom paint applied Jan 2018 and is Petit Ultima SR40 ablative. The Fuel burn at displacement speed at10 smph is 1.7 statute miles per gallon for both engines!

The owner just loves his vessel! He will tell anyone that asks that the engines are most reliable. In 10 years, they have traveled over 20,000 miles (2000 engine hours) without a single engine problem! Some CAT dealers say that the 3208 was the best marine engine that CAT built & should last 10,000 hours. Two battery chargers are included, Xantrex XC5012 smart charger for the 3 main batteries and the smaller one is Promariner to charge windlass battery up forward.

Right after they purchased this boat, they upgraded the ground tackle to heavy duty versions. Giving them a 65# Hooker fluke with 150' of 3/8" chain in the primary chain locker; a 66# Lewmar claw with 40' of 5/16" chain and 90' of " nylon in the secondary chain locker; finally a 25# Danforth with 15' of 5/16" chain and 100' of 5/8" nylon as a stern anchor. 3 separate anchors & rodes when most boats just have one undersized anchor system!

Additionally, a prefabricated Mantus anchor bridle of 1" nylon & heavy chafe protection. In 10 years, they have NEVER dragged anchor.

Some observations from the owner: "We really like the wide side decks that are flush with the aft deck. Most sundeck trawlers have steps coming from the sundeck to the main deck, a potential trip hazard.

The engine room has both fore and aft entry by lifting steps. The stand-up headroom of 5-1/2' makes engine maintenance a breeze.

The huge sundeck is what really sold us on the boat. It's big enough to have as many as 10 people for drinks or dinner. It has new canvas enclosure as of 2016, new carpet in 2017, and teak doors & cabinets were stripped & varnished in 2017. Sundeck also has both sunshade panels and bug screens for that quiet anchorage.

There is a huge amount of storage throughout the boat for clothing as well as other personal items. When we moved aboard, we had no problem finding a place for our gear.

Because we're full-time cruisers, we keep an extensive inventory of spare parts, including spare 26 x 23 props.

The most recent haulout was Jan 2018 when we had new bottom paint, and the hull gelcoat compounded & waxed. After launching, the superstructure was compounded & waxed, and we completed installation of new canvas on the flybridge.

Because I'm a retired mechanical engineer, I've kept good maintenance records for the past 10 years, & compiled 5 binders of schematics, records, and manuals. A potential buyer can see how well the boat has been cared for by noting for example, how often I've changed drive belts & pump impellers."

Yes, they love the vessel and it shows. Get your offer in today and move onto the waterway tomorrow!

Dinghy included: 2016 West Marine 10' Polyethylene,LEHR LP5 Propane

Information On Condition

She is fully functional and working today and prepped and ready to move into right now with nothing needed! The engine is in great shape as the owner reports above!
