Construction Wood

The boat was built to the rugged “Det Norske Veritas” construction standards, certifying her to operate year round in the extreme conditions of the North Sea. Construction is of carvel planking over massive timbers and frames with a laminated keel. The hull is fastened with locust wood trunnels, which swell in the timbers to form a tenacious, corrosion-free connection. Galvanized steel and bronze fasteners are used in a supplementary way in other places in the vessel. Norwegian Pitch Pine forms the primary hull structure material with a welded aluminum cabin and pilothouse for strength, lighter weight aloft, and durability. The hull and aluminum superstructure were fabricated in Norway and the boat was delivered under her own power to Ireland for completionat the Southern Marine shipyard in Malahide. This boat has been professionally maintained as a United States documented charter vessel with a 2018 survey proving the condition of the vessel as “very good and serviceable” for “operation in the waters of the Pacific Northwest, Southeast Alaska, and along the west coast of the continental US and into Mexico waters.”

Water tanks: SS (250 gallons), plastic (250 gallons);
Holding tank: plastic (88 gallons) (new with all new lines and macerator pump in 2017).

This is a substantially-built classic wooden charter vessel that is well found for long distance voyaging and living aboard in comfort.

The layout features a forward cabin crew’s quarters, three staterooms for guests, a large galley with ample storage, a generous salon and lounge area, and a pilothouse with separate cabin.

Enter the forward crew’s quarters through a large deck shuttle companionway. This cabin is set up with a lower double and upper single berth, a settee, a marine head compartment with shower, and ample storage.

From the main deck, you may enter the cabin spaces from a port side or cockpit doorway. The aft door opens to a large salon with a settee to port and L-shaped settee to starboard with a large glass table. Teak cabinetry and desks provide for ample storage. Large windows permit splendid views and open for ventilation.

Forward from the saloon is the large galley. You will find a three burner propane stove with oven, microwave, a new refrigerator with freezer and a large built-in refrigerator in this space. A very large freezer is below decks for ample food storage. A large opening window complements the galley.

Adjoining the galley is the forward lounge area with windows to the outside and teak storage cabinetry. A teak companionway leads below to the sleeping cabins and head compartment.

On the lower deck, the master suite is amidships. This features a large queen-sized berth with Tempurpedic mattress (2015), teak hanging lockers and drawers, and a portlight hatch to the outside plus an overhead hatch to the deck. An ensuite head compartment includes a shower compartment with seating and a port light hatch for ventilation.

Forward down a hallway a storage compartment to port provides access to the large freezer and storage for cleaning supplies and equipment. Opposite to starboard is the guest head compartment with a large shower and opening port light. The hallway leads forward to the guest cabins.

The port side guest cabin features upper single and lower double berths, ample storage in drawers and lockers, and an opening hatch to the foredeck plus opening port light to port. The starboard guest cabin features a lower double and upper single berth, a settee, bookshelf, and teak lockers and drawers for storage. An overhead hatch leads to the foredeck and an opening port light is to starboard.

From the main level, a companionway ladder leads to the pilothouse. The helm station provides excellent visibility, with full navigation equipment and ship control systems. A pilot’s cabin with single berth, desk, and storage is aft in the pilothouse. Doors to port and starboard lead to the large upper deck. A companionway ladder at the aft end of this deck leads back to the cockpit.

Broker's Comments

Malahide Trawlers were created as long-distance ocean-capable voyaging yachts. These boats conformed to the proven design and construction found in North Sea fishing vessels which sailed in all weather conditions. Malahides were designed by Myles Stapleton and constructed primarily in Norway, Ireland, and Portugal depending on the model. All of the boats had in common: hull construction using heavy timbers, framing, and planking; single engine propulsion with very large engines; extensive tankage for long distance travel; independent power generation capability; and extensive safety systems for offshore voyaging.

Our 65’ Malahide Trawler Yacht Pilothouse model is a fine example of the type. The boat has been professionally maintained and actively chartered with a Jones Act Waiver that goes with the ship. All systems and structure are inspected and maintained or upgraded each season. The boat is well-equipped with an approval for up to 12 passengers for hire. As a private yacht, the boat has grace and character with ample accommodations and comfort features.

Accommodation features include:

-Three comfortable private staterooms plus crew quarters and off-watch pilothouse berthing;
-Full galley with extensive freezer and refrigeration compartments and food storage;
-Private Master Suite marine head compartment with shower;
-Guest marine head compartment with shower;
-Berthing for three crew members and a private marine head compartment in the crew quarters;
-Gracious living space in the main salon, a forward lounge, and outside deck spaces;

Mechanical and ship systems include:

-Caterpillar 375 HP main engine with complete top end rebuild in 2017;
-Robust running gear with major rebuilding in 2016;
-Two diesel generators plus a massive house battery bank;
-Hydraulic windlass and heavy duty ground tackle for safety;
-Extensive and current ship navigation and safety systems;
-This vessel is fully equipped for charter service including shore boats, kayaks, and more.

Our 65’ Malahide Trawler Yacht is proven as a capable and gracious yacht for long distance cruising and living aboard, as well as having demonstrated multiple years of success in charter service. The condition of the boat today is excellent due to professional maintenance and proactive stewardship. The ability to operate in charter provides financial leverage and an exciting potential to explore distant places with clients. This is a true heritage vessel that offers a compelling lifestyle opportunity for the next owner.
