Custom built by a professional boat builder as his personal yacht, this go-anywhere trawler must be seen to be appreciated. Built to the scantlings of a 65 footer and with a 4,000 mile range provided by her low time Cat 3306T (this is widely regarded as one of the most rugged and dependable engines Caterpillar ever built), Away Out is a rugged, sea kindly vessel finished to yacht standards and will make a fine cruising platform--built on an efficient commercial fishboat hull, she leaves almost no wake at cruising speed.

This vessel was built by Benny Alls, owner and founder of MetalCraft Marine of Port Hadlock, WA and Avila Beach, CA, who spent decades building steel commercial vessels for the challenging and unforgiving conditions of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Mr. Alls later founded Allseas with his son Tim, and their 92-footer was featured on the Travel Channel show Extreme Yachts. (google "Allseas Yachts" and you'll quickly get a sense of what we're talking about here).

A master craftsman in steel fabrication, Mr. Alls made sure that the strongest and best materials available were sourced, then paid close attention to the smallest of details in surface prep, the welds themselves and the coatings used to prime and paint--the topsides are so fair the welds are invisible. They say that God lives in the details, and nowhere is this more apt than in building a steel boat! 

And with Away Out, the results speak for themselves; as noted above, the vessel really must be seen to be appreciated--she shows practically as new inside and out, and the engine room looks more like a Navy ship than a pleasure boat (but the galley of a Navy ship wouldn't have soft-close solid wood dovetailed drawers like this boat!).

Under the care of her knowledgeable second owners since 2013, she's had a heavy duty bow thruster installed, her interior extensively reworked (including a major refit of the galley which included the addition of a commercial grade propane range), hull recently painted and a new Northern Lights 5kW genset was just installed in June of 2019 (at which time the bottom was painted as well, this was about a $25,000 yard bill not including the owner's time!).

Another major price reduction late August 2020 and out of state owners encouraging offers. Vessel lying Benicia and shown by appointment, please.
