Manufacturer Provided Description
This Camano Troll "Sesame" is a 31-foot trawler with a flybridge that includes three pedestal seats, an adjustable centre seat with slider, and a stainless steel steering wheel. Built in British Columbia and designed for this coast, an area well known for high quality boats, the Troll was designed by Bob Warman to meet the demand for a boat with a comfortable 12-knot cruise speed that retains a high resale value. With a 10-foot 6-inch beam for stability and 5 feet of freeboard at the bow, weather is not going to threaten this boat. **The Troll runs well between 10-14 knots with her single 200 hp Volvo Diesel engine.
*Sesame's interior offers the same usable room as many 33-foot production boats.She features an open cruising layout (salon and aft deck on the same level), with a full-size bridge. The open, bright interior provides great visibility from any part of the seating area with its picture window view. The interior is light and friendly. Cabinets and trim are mahogany,
Her teak and holly sole was recently installed- looks great. The salon measures 8-feet, 10-inches by 10 feet and is on the same level as the aft deck which is 40 square feet.
The galley and head are half a level down, with a U-shaped galley out of the traffic area but still open to the salon. With a large counter area extending under the sidedecks there is lots of room for full-sized stove with oven, refrigerator, microwave, and large sink. Storage space is provided including dishlocker outboard of the fridge. The shower is built in as a part of the head area. The dinette easily converts to a double berth while the forward berth has a filler available to make a double.
The Camano comes well equipped with 110-V dockside package, pressurized hot and cold water at the galley, depth sounder with speedometer (at both insteering station and on the bridge station) and log, VHF-radio, AM-FM stereo cassette radio, and 20KG.Rocna anchor w/ 200' chain & 150' nylon rode.
Keel form is a unique bottom shape with large displacement keel and very wide waterline beam. Test results show almost no planing angle change or "hump" in the horsepower curve between displacement and planing speeds which, in the case of a boat this size, is between 7 and 14 knots. While most semidisplacement boats are straining and reaching their horsepower limit, the Camano is cruising comfortably up to 14 knots. The hull reduces fuel consumption in the most widely used speed range - between 10 and 14 knots; it can be stabilized to prevent the boat from rolling in rough seas; theres a special flare in the bow section.
The hull of the Troll is 100% hand-laid, ( no "chopped strand,") and thicker than the hulls of comparable production boats. The boat has a heavily built, very strong inner liner laminated into the lower portion of the hull; the bulkheads are thoroughly laminated into place from both sides as are the other parts of the interior. The impact and tear strength of a Camano hull is ten times higher than most production boats. Running aground with the Troll is not a problem. Prop, prop shaft and rudder of the Camano are protected by a heavily reinforced skeg and keel shoe. The inboard diesel combined with the available electric bow thruster result in a handling advantage even over twin stern drives.
