"POLARITY" is a well-maintained trawler that has everything needed to cruise the Chesapeake, do the Great Circle Loop, enjoy coast cruising, spend winters in the tropics and live aboard!  This Trawler has it all! 

The Sundeck profile provides maximum use of space, with 6'5" headroom throughout and great storage.  This trawler features twin Volvo turbo engines with low hours and a new generator and a solid glass hull. 

Galley down and dinette across have lots of natural light.  Open salon has no built-in-benches - a loveseat and lounge chair provide comfortable seating.
