Here's a classic design yet modern construction steel hull, world cruising trawler for sale. She is also a Great Loop veteran. Her first class construction includes a CAT main engine, bow thruster, 20 kW generator and full electronics and safety gear. She's a very economical, safe and comfortable passage maker designed after the Dutch and French Herring and coastal cargo Luggers from the 1800's. Her builder applied the Metco galvanising process and finished her with International Paints Epoxy commercial paint for easy maintenance and repairs. The sellers enjoyed building and cruising their yacht so much, they are now designing their larger new build and are now offering Rainbow Maker for sale while they cruise the East Coast and Bahamas. Major price reduction for a quick sale!
