Broker's Comments

For all practical purposes this 2019 Helmsman Trawlers 43 Pilothouse is a brand new boat. The seller took delivery of this custom-ordered boat in September 2018. The only hours on the engine are the run time from off loading from the ship to the seller's dock (20 hours). There are several custom features which are described in the body of the specifications. To keep as new he has avoided using the facilities with the exception of the refrigerator and the TV. The seller has placed the ownership in an LLC which is available for purchase with the vessel, which can have a real advantage in the sales tax consideration.

This boat is pristine, and offers an amazing amount of living space for a 43' boat. Quality construction is evident throughout.

This is an outstanding opportunity to own a new Helmsman 43 without paying the current new boat price. And there is no need to wait six months or more for a new build!

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