Broker Remarks

This Trapper 501 for sale with Network Yacht Brokers Plymouth has been lovingly maintained by her previous and current owners, she is only in her second ownership from new and was fitted out to a very high standard.
The current owner has a log of all maintenance and upgrades since he has owned the boat, there has been a considerable amount of money spent on upgrades for this yacht, some of these include new standing and running rigging, new Techimpex flame failure cooker, Jabsco sea toilet, numerous sea cocks replaced, new canvas work and the list goes on.
The benefit of this Trapper 501 is that she is one of the rare yachts that were built with bilge keels, this has many advantages as you can explore rivers and estuaries, she will dry out on the beach or mud, and she has great stability in a seaway.
The condition throughout is very good, all of the woodwork in the cockpit and the joinery below deck is in excellent condition for a yacht of this age.
If you are looking for a smart and all up together sailing yacht of this size then you should certainly consider Carly Marie

The current owner has the facility of a secure winter half tide mooring which could be used for the new purchasers until April 2016, this will help keep the winter costs out tremendously.
