Broker Notes

This Vessel was designed and built as A Fire Tug in the Netherlands. It was purchased by the previous owner and he brought it across the Atlantic to Toronto Canada. His intention was to deploy it in Honduras - but the best laid plans...

The current owner has owned it just over a year. His intention was to renovate it into a Bluewater Cruiser - life got in the way...

His dream makes so much since. The vessel has a 4,000 nautical mile range- cruising at 8 knots. Just burning over a gallon, a mile.  The steel superstructure makes it a safe "trawler" for the little latitudes and the cluttered oceans.

The vessel delivers a clean sheet of paper for making it your own. Design the interior to you liking, with 83' in length and 20' in width - there a lot you can do with it.

The boat is priced to move. Depending on your own imagination: purchasing this vessel and having professionals renovate it; you can have a luxury, safe and strong, cost effective to operate, Bluewater ( take you anywhere in the world)  "Trawler "at a cost that would be comparable to what you  pay for a Kadey-Korgen  at half the length of this vessel.
