HERSHINE TRAWLER 40' (1981/2016)

This trawler represents a rare opportunity for the discriminant yachtsman/fisherman, who is the market for a reliable, completely updated and well  maintained, trawler of similar quality to the Grand Banks, but marketed at a more reasonable price.

This yacht is one of the finest examples of the well respected Hershine trawler, presently located on the West Coast.   Constructed and designed with quality craftsmanship, under the auspices of the Albin boat manufacturer.

Extensively updated and outfitted, mechanically and electronically, for long range cruising and/or deep sea fishing, featuring a 800 mile fuel range, a 200 gallon fresh water capacity, and a 100gal/day water maker.

Unique, with a well designed and  sturdy hull,  featuring a flared bow (rare among trawlers), to handle heavy seas, combined with the reliable, economical and well maintained Ford Lehman twin diesels.

Master Stateroom featuring a centerline queen bed, lots of storage and a private Vaccu flush head, shower/tub, and a marble sink.

Upper and lower helms are each complete with updated electronics and manual as well as  digital sync tachs, for smooth operation.

Upgrades and improvements are too numerous to list.

Example: This yacht features three (3) upgraded Simrad NSS and Lowrance Multifunctional Chartplotter/GPS/FF, each with its own dedicated  Chirp/HD transducer and interfaced with a state of the art, Simrad 4G radar system. 

(Upgrades and improvements are available on a 6 page summary, available to qualified buyers.)

The "KICK n BACK" is a fine example of what a knowledgeable boater would expect in a well outfitted and upgraded Hershine (Albin) yacht.

Health issues motivates the sale of this vessel, essentially a turnkey yacht, priced to sell.
