Rare & Robust Bristol Trawler

Engine/Fuel Type:
Twin / diesel
Located In:
Green Cove Springs, FL
Hull Material:
Current Price:
US$ 19,900 

The Bristol 42 is a rare trawler of the highest pedigree. "Nonnie" is undergoing a refit, and is ready for her new owner to step aboard and take her to the next level. She is located in the work yard at Green Cove Springs Marina, where you can live aboard while you work on her. Everything you need is there--the boat, the facilities, a home, and access to the knowledge of many sailors and boaters and experts in all things marine. 

This isn't just the opportunity to buy a boat--it's the opportunity to step into a unique subculture where working on old boats is what holds the community together. She is probably 2/3 of the way into her refit and most of what needs to be done is cosmetic (some structural on the bridge but nothing that impacts her structural integrity).

She's solid with beautiful lines and more gentle curves than most trawlers of this can tell she was designed at built by Bristol! Read the linked article in "Soundings."
