July 2014: Relaunched after de-winterizing with fresh paint topsides and bottom. The hull looks spectacular! Mechanical upgrades and thorough inspections have this expedition yacht in ready-to-go (anywhere!) condition. Owners have removed all personal belongings and are encouraging all offers!
Launched in April 2004, WINDERMERE is the ultimate Cape Horn. Built under the supervision of Peter Sever of the Cape Horn Trawler Corp. and by A.F. Theriault, Windermere is the culmination of all of the Cape Horn modifications including interior layout by renown megayacht designer Jane Plachter-Vogel. This 2nd generation Cape Horn 65 has it all, including azimuthing Z drive, speed nozzle, active fin stabilizers, bow thruster, flybridge, walk-around engine room, full side decks, and loaded with the finest of equipment.
Cape Horn trawlers were built to be the safest luxury yachts and have proven themselves to be worthy of their goals in surviving hurricanes, groundings, and even a knockdown in the tsunami in Phuket. "First in Safety, Safety First" is the company motto that has been substantiated.
The original owners lightly cruised New England from 2004 to March of 2009. The current, second, owners are experienced sailors who have done extensive maintenance and upgrades over the last 5 years and enjoyed cruising from Newfoundland to Bahamas. Unfortunately family health issues have necessitated the sale of their beloved yacht and they have returned to the East Coast to expedite a sale.
Winderemere is in excellent condition and offers a unique opportunity for the cruising couple who wants a luxury expedition yacht where safety and redundancies are paramount.
For additional information on this outstanding vessel, call Judy Waldman, the trawler and long-range cruiser specialist, at (954) 895-8844 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Judy has completed 13 Cape Horn trawler sales and will tell you why this one is the finest of the fleet.

Launched April 2004, The Cape Horn Trawler Corp. built the ultimate CH 65. Built at the A.F. Theriault yard in Nova Scotia under the direct supervision of Peter Sever, Windermere is the culmination of all of the modifications incorporated in the final and best of the Cape Horn Trawlers. Renown megayacht designer Jane Plachter-Vogel drew accommodation plans to best utilize all interior spaces. With a flybridge, Z-drive, active fin stabilizers, bow thruster, and all available options, Windermere adds a level of comfort and luxury deserving of a vessel that promotes "Safety First, First in Safety."
Accommodations include 3 staterooms, an office, and two heads. Five watertight exterior doors provide access to the living areas. All cabinetry is Canadian Birdseye maple with rounded corners and finely executed by the Cape Horn furniture team. Opening portlights in all cabins. Dimmer light switches throughout. Soles are ceramic tiles or carpeted. Sound insulation beneath all carpeting.
Salon & Dining
Entry to the salon is through the watertight door from the aft deck or forward from the starboard side entrance into the galley. The salon features near panoramic windows, natural, halogen, and LED lighting, and provides for a feeling of warm ambiance combined with elegance and spaciousness. To starboard is an ergonomically designed 7' couch that seats six. The two cocktail tables are a clever design in that in addition to raising and lowering for cocktail or dining height, they can also serve as pedestals for a large dining table (stowed in custom cabinet to port) for 10; or the aft table alone acts as a pedestal for a 36" square card table (also stowable) or informal dining for 4 - 5. To port are two swivel recliners; the port cabinet houses the electronics for the 8 zone music distribution center.
