General Details

Custom built by a true yachting aficionado with years of hands-on experience on boats, WALRUS is a refreshing departure from the normal production trawler yacht. Her traditional lines/profile in combination with her very high standard of construction, top of the line equipment and fine finish make her a "contemporary classic" in every sense of the term. Not only is WALRUS capable of being used to entertain large groups dockside on her lovely aft deck or cruise in shallow coastal waters, but she is also a very safe, economical and comfortable passagemaker.

Construction/Design Concept
Massively built of aluminum by St. Augustine Marine Center to specs greater than originally designed by Gerr Marine, Inc. Fantail stern configuration with unique tunnel-drive hull (centerline prop in tunnel) for shoal draft use and "beachability". Designed and built "to take ground with impunity anywhere, any time". WALRUS is the large sister of several other smaller, very successful yachts with the same hull form. The tunnel-drive hull form was originally developed by naval architect William Atken between the two world wars and was later resurrected by Dave Gerr beginning in 1995. Although ultra-shoal these hulls have proven to be excellent seaboats as well as economical to run at cruising speeds. WALRUS is no exception!

Broker's Comments
WALRUS, A 76' shallow draft, single screw trawler, was built in 2006 by and for the owner of St. Augustine Marine Center for shorthanded cruising with his wife in the Bahamas.  This stunning yacht is a unique combination of a traditional fantail motor yacht, due to the owner's passion for classic vessels, and architect David Gerr's, box garboard, tunnel drive and "beachable" hull.  She is massively built of Aluminum to higher specs than originally designed "to take ground with impunity anywhere, anytime". Powered with single 3406E Cat engine, she burns only 9 gph at 8 knots!! Her interior fit and finish is of the highest quality: raised mahogoney, traditional paneling and cabinetry in the main salon; white painted louvered blinds, walls and furnishings below, stainless steel and brushed stainless fittings and fixtures, fine fabrics, art and antique furnishings. Whether dining at the exquisite teak table on her lovely aft deck or sitting in one of the comfortable leather helm chairs in her pilothouse (at sea or at the dock). WALRUS is a joy to be aboard and ready for sale!
