1978 Marine Trader Tri Cabin

Having been with the present owners since new "Island Roamer" lives up to her name.  This vessel has spent over 20 years in the Bahama's exploring the different Islands there.  After many more recent Intracoastal trips, "Island Roamer" has been at home for the last few years,  the vessel's owners are reluctantly ready to sell.

Price just lowered from 69k to $55,000.

"Island Roamer" is a three stateroom configuration that would make a great live aboard.

The original 120 hp. Ford Lehman has been replaced some years ago by the present 135 hp. Ford Super Lehman.  This gives the vessel an incredible range of about 1500 (or better) nautical miles to empty.

The vessel is equipped with a 10 KW cruise generator that runs off the main engine,  as well as a 11 KW Westerbeke diesel genset. The vessel also has had the fuel tanks replaced along with the teak decks removed and refinished.

Please go to full specification/descriptions (scroll down) to see detailed inventory of "Roamer".  Also search ad for "walk around" video to get a better idea of what the vessel offers.

         Things to Consider

* New 2017: Bimini top.
* New 2016: Vinyl hatch covers.
* Three stateroom layout.
* Fuel tanks have been replaced with aluminum tanks.
* Teak decks removed and refinished in non-skid.
* Watermaker at 15 gal. per hour.
* Bauer Dive tank compressor.
* Awlgrip exterior paint 4 years old.
* Cruise generator at 10 KW.

Please note that seller has elected to keep small GPS for another vessel.
