This is not your typical working Shrimp Trawler! This vessel, custom built in 1986, is by far the most overbuilt Shrimp Trawler available. Built with hand picked lumber cut to true 3 x 10 Timbers on 16 centers, she is as Stout as they come. Rigged and ready to shrimp, set up for 4 Barrels on 8 x 40 doors, she comes with 8- 45 brown shrimp nets and 8- 45 white shrimp nets. Massive hydraulic 2 drum main winch with 200 cable/250 bridles and a separate hydraulic try-net winch. Massive overhead rigging and out-riggers, with a second set of smaller out-riggers included off the boat as back ups. Private Captains quarters off pilot house with over/under bunks and a private head with shower. Separate private crew quarters with over/under bunks. Full galley and dinette, second day head. All interior is finished with tongue and groove Cypress.
She was hauled January 2010, painted and new rudder installed. She was originally built and launched in 1986 for an owner who took the following two years to outfit her with rigging. The original owner shrimped her very lightly part time and sold her back to the Builder 19 years ago, who has kept her in the family every since. She has been well maintained and is ready to shrimp. Pictures do not do this one justice, call today and lets go shrimping!
