This Helmsman Trawlers 38 Pilothouse is well-outfitted. She is in excellent condition. The white gel coat hull and topsides and the stainless steel rails and fittings are almost entirely unblemished. The beautiful interior is equally clean and well-maintained. This boat has been owned and operated in fresh water, and stored dry and indoors until 2018. 2018-present has been outside shrink-wrapped.
Special features include -- bow and stern thrusters, a FreedomLift davit system, Northern Lights 6 kw generator, Garmin navigational electronics, Fusion stereo, hinged radar arch, added canvas to bridge along with a sunshade (2018), brand new batteries throughout (2022), Magnum inverter.
This boat seems much larger than its size implies with a very roomy interior and a design that includes a full-beam salon, a day head, separate master head and shower compartments, and an extended pilothouse that serves as a comfortable living area in addition to its piloting function.
The quality of materials and construction are evident with teak and holly floors, beautiful teak joinery, heavy deck fittings and handrails, sturdy deck sections, and thick engine compartment sound insulation.
You'd be hard-pressed to fit more boat into a 40' slip. Its 380 hp electronically-controlled Yanmar 6LY3 common-rail engine turns down nicely, and operates smoothly and quietly. She performs frugally at 7 or 8 knots, and has additional power when needed.
In the water and ready for new owners. The ultimate long distance trawler.
*Tender with 20HP Electric Start motor is available for negotiation.*
