"KAREN" is a comfortable, sturdy, economical true trawler. Her proven design coupled with her hand laid solid fiberglass hull makes her ideal for cruising Northwest waters.

A tall person will appreciate this yacht due to more than adequate head room and long bunks. The guest stateroom is comfortable. Designer décor and washer/dryer. The top deck roof line is carried to the transom and provides excellent rain protection. The powerful bow will be appreciated in rough weather. Bottom paint stripped and 2 coats Sea Hawk Cukote bottom paint applied in 2016. She's in beautiful condition and priced to sell.
