Notes from the Builder

The Nova Scotia Pilothouse Trawler was the brainchild of Capt. Curt Marsh built at his former factory in Moncton, New Brunswick Canada. Hull #1 was launched and delivered on her own bottom to her new owner from The Bay Of Funday, New Brunswick, Canada to Hilton Head, SC in the cold winter of 2003.

The interior user-friendly designed floor plan is meant for cruising in comfort. She features two staterooms and two heads. The master staterom is midship features a centerline queen walk around berth, a walk-in cedar-lined 5x7 air conditioned closet and plenty of stowage drawers under the queen berth. Separate built in washer/dryer units are also featured in the master stateroom along with built in TV/stereo unit. Master stateroom head features separate very large shower stall, electric whisper flush head, corian sink w/designer faucets, corian counter top, medicine cabinet and lots of cupboard storage below sink area.

The guest/office stateroom is forward, featuring ultra leather sofa and behind this sofa is a murphy-style double guest bed, computer size desk, built-in wall linen cupboard, book shelves and full size cedar lined hanging locker. The quest head features electric whisper flush head, corian sink with designer faucets, medicine cabinet and storage cupboard below sink.

For a boat this size it may be a surprise to hear that the walk-in engine room features 6'8" headroom and it's air conditioned, comes with built-in workbench, vice and toolbox.

The aft salon is ready for entertaining with a bar, entertainment center, an abundance of space and luxury, electric sofa/sleeper, recliner chair and teak & holly floor. Access to the 5'X 7' storage commissary is through a salon floor hatch.

The large U-shaped galley is open to the salon and would make a gourmet chef feel right at home, featuring three burner gas range with built in convection/microwave oven, double corian sinks with designer faucets, above and below cupboard storage, plenty of drawer storage, full size refrigerator/freezer and plenty counter space.

The pilothouse is a captains dream come true! Inside access from the pilothouse to the flybridge. This raised pilothouse features a center line captains helm seat, full electronics display package with all the bell's and whistles, 6'8" watch berth, port & starboard dutch doors to side decks.

This vessel is very comfortable, a home away from home, ideal for the cruising couple and has space for the occasional guests. Very economical cruising speed with her single 480 hp Cummins diesel @ 7 knots she gets 2 miles per gallon and at 6 knots she gets over a 2000 mile range and her top speed is 11 knots. She holds 800 gallons of diesel fuel, draft is 5-1/2', beam 17', bridge clearance 22'with antennas down, LOA 51', holding tank 100 gallons, water tank 300 gallons, displacement 50,000 lbs.

2003 Magna Marina Nova Scotia 47

The NS47 is an incredible boat, well designed, well constructed, and loved by the few lucky enough to have owned one.  The current owners of The Bar-B have cruised extensively during their twelve year ownership, including the Great Loop, Bahamas, Erie Canal, Inland Rivers, Great Lakes, Florida Intercoastal, and 19 Gulf of Mexico crossings, and now they've decided it's time for a change so this well loved Nova Scotia is available for purchase.

Her current owners have made thoughtful upgrades and provided thorough maintenance during the last twelve years, and now this unique and exceptional vessel is available for another owner to continue to enjoy.
