Boarding via the swim platform and transom gate, you are greeted by teak decking in excellent condition, a rarity for a trawler of this vintage, due to replacement of her decks under previous ownership (reported 1998). The sizable, covered cockpit allows unimpeded movement forward via well protected port and starboard side decks. Entry to the saloon is via a sliding teak door. Here, an open layout offers a spacious seating and dining area, simple and effective galley to port and helm to starboard. This area is serviced by opening windows and ports for good ventilation.
Moving forward, the companionway leads to the v-berth and head to port. Here as in all interior areas of the boat there are multiple storage areas.
Access the starboard sidedeck from the helm via the sliding hatch. Movement fore and aft is secured via handholds and railing.
Access to the flybridge is via ladder in the cockpit. The expansive flybridge allows seating for a large group.

REFUGE represents an excellent opportunity for the budget minded cruiser. The usual vintage trawler problem areas - decks and tankage - have been replaced. Her engine runs very well with an estimated 1,850 total hrs. Her bright work is due for a refinish, and there is some evidence of water intrusion in several areas of the house which need to be addressed. 43 years on and still ticking, REFUGE is ready to enter the care of new owners.
