Nanatee is a boat fit for a movie star, quite literally! Tom Hanks stayed onboard this Marine Trader trawler while on location filming Forest Gump, and it's not hard to see why he enjoyed his time at anchor on this gentle giant.
Nanatee's current liveaboard owner has loved and cherished her before coming into ill health, wiping the dew off the gelcoat of Nanatee every morning, Cosmetically, Nanatee is beautifully maintained and continues to demonstrate her long-term glory. She is now looking for a new owner who is ready to take on and progress her mechanical maintenance, and is priced taking into account the need for mechanical / systems work.
