Thompson Trawler 44 For Sale. SOLD

This boat is SOLD.
Thompson Trawlers like this 44 footer were designed and built for the Gulf Coast commercial shrimping and fishing industry and constructed in Titusville, Florida. These hulls quickly became famous for their seaworthiness and durability. Seeing that the overall design would be a perfect platform for a cruising yacht, Thompson built approximately 100 trawlers modified from the deck up to offer yachting accommodations without sacrificing the strength and stability of their commercial cousins. With its stand-up, walk-around engine room housing twin Detriot Diesel 4-53s, this 1976 Thompson is easy to work on and maintain. The main cabin of this trawler features a full head with an electric flush toilet and enclosed shower.  The forward V-berth also has its own head with a shower and manual flush toilet.  Air conditioning and a Follow-Me satellite TV system complete the package and give this 1976 Thompson all the comforts of home. 

There are currently only half a dozen other Thompson Trawler 44's for sale in the U.S. and this one is by far the best value, especially considering its twin diesel configuration.  This boat has a lot of potential and would make an excellent liveaboard.  With a little TLC it will be ready to cruise anywhere.  It's already getting a lot of interest at Cape Regal Yachts and you can click here to see its full listing.  Contact me any time for more details.
