  • 55′ - 16.76m
  • 1965
Exclusively listed, this Ocean going steel trawler by the renown North Sea trawler builder Romsdal and powered by Gardner 6LXDT engine is for sale.

Built to last, steel hull with aluminum superstructure - this vessel was cutting edge technology when she was built. This method of construction has stood the test of time with successive owners maintaining her to high standard. The current owner of 'Torsk' has had her blasted, repainted and a mini refit late 2017.

Extensive redundancy equipment has been added to her for extended remote cruising, including 12/24/110 and 240vlt power systems, fuel management and cleaning, watermaker, new 8kva genset and an 8kva cruising engine driven generator.

The ever reliable 6LXDT Gardner engine with Twin Disc gear box provides an economical 7.5knots cruising speed for easy 180nm days but will move you along at 12 knots when you need to get places quickly. Range in excess of 4000nm.

A true classic long distance cruising vessel with very aesthetically pleasing looks. Functional and strong, make this boat your next liveaboard, cruising, expedition vessel without breaking the bank.
