WALRUS is a refreshing departure from the normal production trawler yacht.  She was commissioned in 2007 after 5 years of construction by and for the owner of St. Augustine Marine Center, a true yachting aficionado with years of hands-on experience building boats. No compromises were made in her construction at a cost of $5million.  She is massively built of aluminum.  Her interior fit and finish is of the highest quality, with raised mahogany, traditional paneling and cabinetry in the main salon. white painted louvered blinds, walls and furnishings below, stainless steel and brushed stainless fittings and fixtures throughout.

This stunning yacht is a "contemporary classic" in every sense of the term, a unique combination of a traditional fantail motor yacht with architect David Gerr's, box garboard, tunnel drive shoal drafthull design.

With her reduced air draft, she is an excellent choice for a Great Loop excursion and is also a proven very safe, economical, and comfortable offshore passagemaker.

Her second and current owner, a renowned yachtsman in both sail and power yachts, has lived aboard comfortably for 6 years cruising the Bahamas, Caribbean and New England.  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, WALRUS is a joy to be aboard.
