• Trawler-style cruiser known for its classic lines, solid construction, lavish teak interior and superb joiner work, the heavy glass layup of its hull, its long keel and hard chines for good protection of its running gear and stable smooth ride (including on one engine), its ease of handling with relatively low power, good fuel economy, and excellent accommodations and livability.

Remarks from the current owners, directed especially to first-time trawler customers:

"Living aboard the ‘Andora Bay’ provided some of the most awesome and comfortably pleasurable experiences of our lives—more akin to the charm of living on water’s edge in one of the most cozy, warm, and brightest cottages imaginable.

"A trawler is very different than a sailboat or express cruiser. No crawling over fellow passengers in order to back into a toilet compartment. No having to make a meal while heeled over in the cold, dark damp below the waterline. You’ll not endure a single moment of claustrophobia thanks to the nearly 360-degree view from the salon’s large and plentiful windows. And you won’t even have to duck your head, anywhere, given the standing headroom in every square inch of our vessel's living spaces, including the shower cabinets.

“Outfitted with a deep, dual stainless steel sink, a 3-burner stove and full-sized fridge, the galley is great, and its ‘up’ layout in the salon makes the whole, open space more like a country kitchen—with a view. The engine compartment is well lit and huge: we can practically stand up in it and reach just about everything with two hands.

“There is an enormous amount of storage space, including two, floor-to-ceiling hanging lockers (closets), loads of drawers and cabinets, a huge lazarette, and additional space we have yet to use. In fact, the space in the vessel’s characteris¬tic ‘eyebrow’ is big enough to sleep two or 3 adventurous kids!

“The boat has 19 ports and windows. Lots of light! Its 4 portholes have PortVisors, so even while away we keep them wide open, and with the Nicro powered vent with custom lithium battery, the vessel stays fully ventilated—even on cloudy days. Because the sani system runs on the onboard water supply (rather than raw lake or sea water) there’s no odor of rotting algae in the water lines ‘welcoming’ us when we return.

"Back on board, the boat is sparkling, and the ports—along with the 5 opening windows, an overhead hatch in the forward cabin, the one for the aft companionway, and two doors—provide the kind of flow-thru ventilation you’d find in a backyard gazebo. Alternatively, the insulat¬ing quality of the interior teak paneling, window framing and teak par¬quet soles (flooring), coupled with the zoned air conditioning and heat, mean real comfort from mid-April through mid-summer and into November! Though we never considered this before living aboard, the construction and wood surfaces also create an extremely quiet interior, while the overall layout ensures surprising privacy.

"Outdoors, the wide side decks, high, rock-solid handrails, raised bulwarks, generous scuppers, and the best no-skid surface money can by—teak planking—not only insure all-weather safety underway, while docking, and especially for the kids, but also make moving around the boat just plain easy and inviting. You walk around rather than crawl on all fours, and like its interior, utilizing ALL of Andora Bay's exterior deck space is a dream. For all these reasons—along with the vessel’s heft, solid build, and stability—we’ve never felt trapped like rats on an over¬sized bobber.

“Andora Bay provides a real home—one on the water, not in it, safe and sound, level and dry, where you can just simply step outside and enjoy the starlit skies above.”
