Sold Sea Worthy Trawler / Four Bed Home - Essex


Marie Louisa is a fine example of a retired Trawler / Sidewinder that has been converted into a spacious floating home.

With four large bedrooms spread out across 3 decks and with large social and working areas this unique vessel offers flexibility and versatility throughout.

This sea worthy trawler is powered by a Gardiner engine that is housed in its own large engine room and with a complement of modern instruments on the bridge, this is not just a static home but also a rare opportunity to purchase an extremely capable vessel that would with work and adjustment make a superb expedition yacht.

Priced realistically with an aim to sell efficiently, the present owner is aware that she needs some work to ensure safe passage through any seas and therefore is open to offers.
