For Sale: F/V Sunset 38 Foot Wood Troller

Postby Sunset » Sun Aug 10, 2014 3:22 pm

Currently actively fishing this 38 foot wood Troller. Built in 1941 out of yew wood. Comfortable living quarters. The boat has served me very well over the past 15 years and it has been well maintained. Only 2 owners over the past 30 years. Very sound hull. Aluminum bull works, poles, and hay rack. Holds 240 gallons of fuel. Packs 5500 pounds of slushed fish. Could be converted back to an ice boat. Repowered last year with a John Deere naturally aspirated 4045. Engine currently has 1500 hours. Burns less than a gallon an hour. Complete turn key efficient operation. Furuno sounder, GPS, and radar. Comnav 1001 autopilot. Wilson cell phone booster. Boat rewired 5 years ago. 2500 watt inverter. Chest freezer. New additions this year includes: racor fuel system, hydraulic clutch, bladder bag, brailer bags, auto pilot remote, CB, float bags, Bluetooth stereo system. Boat could be available 9/5 so new owner could get last couple weeks of the season in. Asking $45,000. I am unable to get pictures to upload due to poor internet and cell coverage in Cross Sound following the earthquake. I was able to get the pictures to post on Southeast Alaska Craigslist. Please look there to see pictures. When internet improves here I will post pictures on this thread. Thanks for looking.
