General Details

This custom made 43' aluminum boat was designed to be a combination offshore lobster boat and longliner and to carry a gaff-rigged sail. Her main Perkins diesel engine is coupled to a Hundsted variable-pitch propeller. This 43 footer incorporates back-up propulsion. A second Perkins diesel engine that runs the hydraulic deck gear can also be coupled to the propeller shaft in the event the main engine fails. According to her builder, she can carry 90 lobster traps on her main deck and 900 lbs of lobsters in the forward live-well hold. Both holds would be used for groundfish or swordfish with an estimated 12,000 lbs. capacity. A salt-water ice machine is onboard. She was designed for maximum economy of operation.

She features:
- Hydraulic Deck Gear
- Hot and Cold Water
- Large Salon Table
- Head with Shower
- Two Large Bunks in Salon
- Back-Up Power
- Generator
- Radar
- Autopilot
- VHF and compass
- Stereo
- Fuel burn of approximately 3 gallons per hour at 9 knot cruise speed
- Includes a 9' bow pulpit, not shown in pictures
- There also is a sailing mast, although no sails

This boat was used for off shore lobstering. The seller has since retired and is motivated to sell. She was featured in National Fisherman. She would make a great "liveaboard" vessel. Please contact me with any specific questions that are not covered in the listing.

She has been dry stored for the past 4 years. All items were operational during last use, except for the ice maker, which should be easily repairable.
