2009 Custom 46 Diesel Duck Trawler in Rockport, Texas

Stock #113164

2009 CUSTOM BUILT 46 DIESEL DUCK TRAWLER!!!

This is a one owner boat built and maintained by the seller. She is currently being lightly used, so the hours may fluctuate slightly.

She was scratch-built from the keel up by the seller during the period from April 2003 to April 2011. It is a long-range diesel cruiser with a fiberglass/wood hull with shape patterned after the West Coast Salmon Troller.

They were usually operated by a husband and wife, or father and son team, and were designed for ease of short-handed operation and extreme efficiency.

They are narrower, more sharply pointed at the bow, and often "double-ended." They are slow, safe, and may have a very long range. Pelagic is considered a trans-Atlantic boat with a range of 2500 to 3000 miles between fuelings, depending on speed and generator usage.

Above Deck: She is built mostly out of various woods, with a fiberglass outer layer.

The interior has many different and interesting kinds of wood. The boat also has many features normally only found on larger boats. Many of these were able to be included in the boat only by sacrificing a dedicated guest cabin.

She is a serious, capable look on the outside is carried through on the inside with a layout designed to provide comfort and safety at sea.

This is no floating condo or marina queen, which is best left at the dock when the weather turns bad. Instead, from properly positioned handrails to heavy-duty door hinges and catches, every detail is carefully designed for safety at sea.

Windows are extra heavy, tempered glass or Margard polycarbonate, and all window and door frames are built to withstand boarding seas.

Non-skid decks with night lighting improve footing and movement around the outside, and rounded corners on furniture and cabinets inside reduce scrapes and bruises when the boat makes an unexpected movement.

Wheelhouse: Her center of attraction is the wheelhouse, which has a real sense of purpose about it. Located where sea motion is minimized, its wrap-around windows and angled equipment console provide excellent visibility for operating the boat.

This is the ship's command center, with all engine controls, DC electrical panels, navigation gear, and communications equipment installed in a logical, easy-to-use fashion. A raised settee provides the perfect spot behind the helm to keep watch while underway or anchored behind a distant island.

There's a pilot berth behind the settee for those overnight passages, which also serves as an extra berth in port.

Standing at the helm looking out across the bow in rising seas and knowing the trustworthiness of her diesel engine and how stout the hull gives us confidence that this is a vessel that will go just about anywhere.

Below Deck: Although the seller designed and built the interior with the comfort of himself and one other as the primary design directive, he worked hard to incorporate features that will accommodate additional guests in comfort.

Her interior is, at the same time, luxurious and functional. Going below and aft, the owner's stateroom with private head is spacious and comfortable.

There is generous storage of clothing, supplies, maintenance items, and a large library of books and DVD/Blurays.

Below decks forward, more of the innovative features of this yacht become apparent.

A custom partial spiral staircase, executed in old-growth white oak, leads to the dinette that becomes an extra double berth and has storage beneath for emergency fresh water and supplies.

On the port side is the Captain's office with a heavy maple desktop that doubles as a workbench. Here we also find the heart of the AC electrical system, with a Victron Inverter/Charger.

The ship's computer is located here, and there is a 32" HDTV with Blu-Ray player in the computer. Below the exotic Brazilian Mesquite sole is the house bank of traction batteries, engine oil storage, root crop storage, and polished fuel tankage.

Moving forward, we come to the ship's galley. Pelagic provides the conveniences of a home kitchen in a compact, efficient layout. She has a full-size refrigerator with an icemaker, a gas range with an oven, and a trash compactor.

A durable granite countertop supports two individual deep sinks, one with a disposal and saltwater plumbing. There is a drawer type dishwasher and a microwave oven. Pelagic has a U-shaped galley with provisions for safety belting the cook in rough seas.

On the starboard side, she has modern high-efficiency front loading washer and dryer.

Above the washer and dryer is the main pantry area with several different types of storage. Forward of the pantry is a large vertical locker, that houses the microwave, towels and linens, and a slide-out shelf for large galley appliances such as a bread maker, Kitchen Aid Mixer, and the Belgium Waffle maker.

All the way forward is the main head. Its features include an electric flush macerating toilet, a large tiled shower, and a generous vanity area. Designer tiles and wall treatments abound.

There is 24-hour ventilation and an extra heater for cold mornings. The floor tile's focal point is a mosaic compass rose executed in travertine, black granite, and two varieties of marble.

Recycled Parts

The boat has four watertight compartments; The watertight dogged engine room door was salvaged off a 69' Gulf shrimper named "Captain Arthur".

The stern mooring posts were cut from the salvaged Sampson post of a Gulf shrimper named "Connie and Deb".

The Searchlights came off towboats, the Sampson post blocking to the stem from a freight elevator in Victoria, and the pilothouse flooring from a bowling alley lane in Corpus Christi, Texas.

A searchlight front glass is made from a Pyrex pie plate.

Green Built

Every appliance is chosen based on electrical efficiency and low water usage. All lights except searchlights and navigation lights are either compact fluorescent or LED. Oil waste can be burned as fuel.

There is a mast and sail to reduce fuel usage on long passages in the trades. The aft part of the boat is entirely manually operated plumbing.

Waste heat from the engine is used for cold weather heating and hot water. Solar panels will keep the house bank topped off.

Exotic Woods

The woods used are also interesting. Southern Yellow Pine from Northern Louisiana, Douglas Fir from Oregon, White oak from Maine, Mahogany from Honduras, Ash from North Carolina, Sapele from Africa, Jatoba and Ipe from Brazil, Longleaf Pine salvaged from the Ayers Bowling Alley in Corpus Christi, Texas, and Mesquite from Uvalde, Texas.

Trivia

There are over 7000 stainless steel Canadian made screws in the hull alone. 1500 bronze ring shank nails in the deck and roof structures. 90 gallons of epoxy and 70 gallons of tar are in it.

The largest bolts are over 5 feet long and most of the bolts are custom machined. Total time spent building the boat is about 16,500 man-hours in 8 years.

**Seller Update Dec 27 2018: Simrad 4G Broadband Digital Radar is installed and fully functional now. New Simrad Chart Plotter and Navigation system is installed and up and running. Boat computer has been upgraded and a UPS added for further reliability. New antennas for secondary VHF and AIS system are installed. New steering cylinders are installed. Transom nameboards were removed and repainted. A bronze strainer has been added to forward airconditioning seawater intake to keep cabbage heads from getting sucked onto the thru-hull and restricting waterflow. Cosmetic hurricane damage to port side has been repaired and re-AwlGripped. All routine and deferred maintenance is completed (including a super good bottom job).

Information On Condition

2020 Update

She has a few maintenance items that have not been completed. Hurricane Harvey broke a starboard spreader. A replacement has been fabricated but needs to be Awl Gripped and installed. Also, on that side is a split in the fiberglass that allowed some moisture penetration. The moisture has been dried out, crack filled with System Three epoxy, and is ready for fairing the glass and touch up of the Awl Grip.

Please call, email or text to schedule a showing and let us impress you.

Nov 2020: Both AC units are serviced and in tip top condition with a new thermostat.
