Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

The Trapper 240 is a modern yacht that is a tribute to her famous designer, Ed Dubois.

Fractional rigged with a heavy and deep lifting keel (hydraulically powered), she will give her owner lots of fun racing 'around the cans' or coastal cruising. With her lifting keel she can visit the harbours and estuaries that are denied to many others. Her outboard and the lifting keel box have been professionally rebuilt this year.

She would make a good first boat for a growing family, or, perhaps, a 'single-hander'.

Her current owner is moving to a larger boat for his growing family. She would benefit from some general tidying for the next season and this is reflected in the pricing.
