Now in Fort Lauderdale! New hull paint completed February 2014.
Dramatic $200,000 price reduction reflects owner's motivation in selling! Built at the renown shipyard of A.F. Theriault & Sons in Nova Scotia and designed by the acclaimed naval architect Bob Johnston, Aliyah III was built to be an all-weather rugged small ship for comfortable couple cruising. Outfitted and equipped by an open checkbook owner, Aliyah III offers yacht amenities combined with excellent pedigrees for blue water passagemaking. She has low hours on her fuel sipping Caterpillar engines, outstanding joinery, has primarily cruised summers in Canadian waters, and is in excellent condition.
You've heard the expression "You want to buy a boat from an owner like this" but this sets new standards in an owner's insistance on perfection and following through to an "as new" vessel through meticullous maintenance. Pictures nor words can describe what an outstanding opportunity Aliyah III presents.
Judy Waldman, specialist in trawlers and long-range cruisers, thinks this is one of the finest small ships she's come across. For more information, please call at (954) 895-8844.

Engine Room & Mechanics
Entry to the engine room is from the watertight door aft of the master head or from the watertight door from the lazarette which is accessed from the watertight hatch on the aft deck. The engine room is designed for ease of maintenance, good accessibility to all parts and pumps, well labeled equipment, color-coded piping, and for easy and convenient winterizing. Head room is 6'.
Great attention was given to fuel management. Fuel is gravity fed from the two day tanks to the engines or for fuel polishing by manual or electric pumps. Fuel consumption is less than 4 gallons per hour at cruise speed.
Each Caterpiller naturally aspirated 4 cylinder engine, 86hp each, have approximately 525 hours. The Walker V-drives are hard mounted to the hull eliminating alignment issues. The keel coolers, providing fresh water cooling, are isolated from the hull and the soft mounted transmission allow for reduced sound and vibration. The insulation blankets are by Firwin. The hydraulic pumps, with manual overrides, power the port and starboard windlass, winches, bow thruster, and fire pump. The electric bilge pump and hydraulic fire pump can be used for either finction. The fire fighting system is automatic with manual overide and is fully redundant. The two sea chests are also designed for redundancy and all intakes can be directed through one or both sea chests. Back-up continues with details such as raw water feeds to the freshwater toilets and fire pump.

Inspection September 2012:
Inspection included photogrpahy, detailed assessment with acclaimed surveyor, and a three hour sea trial. Although the seas were relatively calm, Aliyah III performed flawlessly including easy maneuvering in and out of her dock space. She tracked well, handled easily, and was extremely stable. With the bow thruster, she turned within her own boat length; with wheel hard-over and without bow thruster, she turned within 2 boat lengths and very slight heel. She easily maintained cruising speed of 7 knots and attained 7.8 knots WOT against the current.The 45 ton displacement gave a solid secure feel that Aliyah III could handle any seas to which she might be exposed.
The owner, a life-long sailor, spent years in research and building an exceptional trawler. With the quality of contruction, redundant systems, excessive spare parts supply, and comfortable live-aboard amenities, a prospective owner or surveyor will be hard pressed to find faults with this outstanding passagemaker. The owner has decided to retire his boat shoes and is offering Aliyah III to the serious-minded cruiser who will appreciate her sea-keeping qualities.
