“Mad Hatter” is a solidly built and comfortably appointed trawler. It is an ideal example of a cruising trawler that can be a comfortable home away from home. The current owners have cruised in her since they had her built and their attention to careful maintenance is evidenced throughout. She has an enormous fly bridge and sundeck, a large main cabin and a spacious Captain’s stateroom with an island queen bed, vanity and large private head and shower. She is powered by twin Perkins diesel engines. If you are looking for that rugged live-aboard trawler, this may be her. Come in and take a look! Extensive remodeling has been done to this boat from 2012 through October 2013 including new batteries, SS mixing elbows and hoses, depth finder, windlass motor, heads, etc.
