This fine vessel is a North Sea fishing trawler converted to a very comfortable long range expedition trawler. This stout refitted vessel is the culmination of the sellers forty plus years combined experience as professionals in the charter cruising business. They drew extensively from their experience of carrying passengers on a traditional rigged sailing ship to create this custom design insuring their guests both safety and comfort.
She is a combination of several elements: a traditional ketch auxiliary sailing rig, beautiful wood interiors with classic yacht design from the 1940s, a charming and cozy galley, the strength and integrity of a working fishing vessel, a fuel range of 6000 nautical miles, and capabilities for offshore adventure.

One of the favorite shipboard places for relaxation is the coach house. The coach house is completely protected from the weather, with lots of windows, beautiful varnished mahogany wood panels, a reading library, comfortable seating and even a traditional Danish Reflec oil stove. At night, the coach house is filled with lantern light, song and stories. Musical instruments were always welcomed!
The below-deck salon is laid out in the typical style of a 19th century pilot schooner, with a warm comfortable wood interior. It was designed for educational films and natural history demonstrations, and can double as an informal classroom.
One thing that sets this ship apart from the big cruise ships is her "open wheel house". There is ample comfortable seating behind the pilot station in the wheel house where guests can join the crew at the chart table as they navigate while enjoying the high vantage point from the wheel house.

She is in near sailaway condition and is capable of going anywhere in the world. After 25 years in the "adventure cruising/expedition" business, the sellers have decided to move on to their next adventure.
Their adventure cruising/expedition business may be available to the right buyer.

This vessel cruises at ~7.5Knots with the engine running at ~350RPM while consuming 7-8 GPH (includes both the engine and generator).
The engine is a low revolution Dutch Built Industrie engine, typically maintained by an on board engineer. She is manually oiled every 3-4 hours. Parts are still available for this engine, though it has run and continues to run flawlessly over the last 200, 000 miles under the watchful eyes of her Owner/Captain/Engineer.
This vessel is so sound that the Owner states that he would not hesitate to go transatlantic or make another Arctic expedition with family and friends on board. She was built for the rugged North Seas and has an integral collision bulkhead in the bow that can serve double duty as another fresh water storage tank containing 1500 gallons.
The owner states she is ready to sailaway upon completion of a topsides repaint. She had new bottom paint, fresh zincs installed in August of 2015, after which she was launched and made a 30 hour run from Maine to Massachusetts where she awaits her next owner..
Her Corten Steel hull was Audio Gauged and found to be in very good condition. This report may be available to an interested buyer for a fee.
