General Details


1983/2003 St Augustine Long Range Expedition Trawler "SHAPAMA"   Designed by DeFever.

Every once in a while a yacht broker gets to list an amazing and beautiful vessel. Well, SPAPAMA is exactly such a vessel. Her owner has painstakingly cared for her and the pride of ownership shows throughout.

Built in the St Augustine shipyard in St Augustine, Florida SHAPAMA is a DeFever designed steel hulled expedition trawler capable of transoceanic cruises. With her bulbous bow, 90 foot length, 24 foot beam, and deep, stabilized hull, SHAPAMA handles much better than any comparable expedition trawler.


Displacement: 110 Tons
Total Power: 480
Refit Details
SHAPAMA has undergone extensive refits in 2003 and again in 2007. The entire interior was professionally decorated and completely refurnished in a tropical motif. The refit included all new teak and maple flooring, carpeting, wall coverings, furniture, ceiling panels, Cantaloupe light fixtures throughout, artwork, granite countertops, linens, flatware, glassware, and full service for 10. The aft deck salon was refit to include a new wine cooler, under counter refrigerator, microwave, countertops, upholstery, and trim. The Cockpit area was redesigned to include a new built in cabinet, sink, large seating area, and new freshwater pumps. A 10 ton air conditioning system was added to advance quick cooling in the interior spaces. The water maker and filtration system were completely replaced and upgraded to produce 2200 gallons of water of fresh water in 20-30 hours. The water is clean down to one micron, cleaner than most municipal water supplies. A complete set of spare parts including a/c pumps and compressors, filters, seals, cutlass bearings, water pumps and many others parts completes an extensive spare parts inventory. The main engine exhaust was reworked, voltage regulators/alternators, were either rebuilt or replaced as well as the main circuit breakers, and shore power connections.

Also found on the top deck are two 4000 pound cranes and water toys including: two wave runners, two kayaks, and an 18 foot Zodiac Hurricane with twin 70 hp Yamaha outboard engines. A spare set a stainless steel shafts are stored along the side of the dingy cradle The hull, engine rooms, chain locker, and the lazarette were sandblasted to the bare metal, primed with two coats of epoxy primer and then painted with two coats of AWLGRIP paint. The beautiful dark blue hull and white decks and superstructure are stunning. State of the art electronics were added to the pilothouse and rewired throughout. A new 40Kw Yanmar generator and a 90 hp Cummins bow thruster were added as well. The bulbous bow was added for additional speed and fuel savings.
