Broker's Comments

Boatshed London are pleased to offer this Trapper 500 for sale. Originally built in 1980
with the 501 interior and in the same ownership since 1995, this well- loved cruiser is beautifully presented and the London mooring it currently possesses could be kept on to use the boat as a pied-a-terre, or a Monday to Thursday home-base for someone only working in London.

The boat is also sold with an excellent 4-wheel trailer which was built specifically for this boat so the boat could be moved to another location.

The boat has clearly been well maintained with a new Beta engine fitted in 2014 and everything on board is working as it should be - she could be sailed tomorrow. The upholstery in the saloon is the original which has lasted very well and the cabin was reupholstered.

Sails are Dolphin and from 2008. Trappers have always been well known as safe and easy to sail boats which would suit a family. The cockpit is both safe and spacious with good storage in the cockpit locker to starboard. The boat has been fitted with additional electric heaters for living aboard, and the Eberspacher diesel blow
heating is also fully functional.

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