The only reason this owner is selling is to accommodate more passengers on his next vessel.

Her sole and Teak and Holly throughout have been well maintained and oiled.

Her hull and deck are in very good overall condition.

When discussing the hours on the Volvo, this POP associate shared the story of another trawler in Massachusetts with the same diesel engine that had over 10,000 ours on it and still ran just 100-200 RPM lower than what she used to. It all depends on how an owner maintains it.
