Short Description: This broad-shouldered 65\\\\\\\' Madden & Lewis Commercial Trawler is massively-built & meant to go to sea & to stay there. She was launched from the famous Sausalito, California Madden & Lewis Yard in 1939 & built to exceptionally robust scantlings of the excellent ship-building woods then available. Power is by a Detroit Diesel V-12, 435 HP 12V-71 with Twin Turbos & Twin Blowers as well as Hydraulic Marine Gears. There is also a high-output Hydraulic PTO (Power Take-Off) on the front of the main engine to power the hauling equipment on the boom. This vessel would make an excellent candidate for conversion to recreational use or as a high-endurance excursion yacht. She would be ideal for service in the Pacific Northwest\\\\\\\'s Puget Sound and British Columbia\\\\\\\'s & Alaska\\\\\\\'s \\\\\\\"Inside Passage. Those who favor more ambitious projects might convert her to a very rugged sailing vessel with schooner or even square-rigged spar & sail plan; but, she is fully operational as she lays & can certainly be used as presently found. Yes, she needs some house-keeping clean-up & some up-dating wouldn\\\\\\\'t be a bad idea; but, vessels of this quality & robustness are becoming very rare in the reasonable price range at which she is presently being offered; she is an exceptional opportunity for those with vision & the desire for adventure & the courage to accomplish something significant. This vessel could be your window to your dreams. There is much to recommend her & she presents a great value for the right Buyer.
