Broker's Comments

The Trapper 300 is a sporty yet comfortable cruiser racer which should be equally at home coastal cruising with a family as she is club racing around the cans. Easily handled by a couple in cruising mode, she will also provide satisfying performance under sail.
This example is clean and tidy below decks, appears to have a well serviced Yanmar main engine and adequate navigation aids for coastal work. A little TLC would certainly be in order with regard to external cosmetic condition but a pressure wash and hull polish would transform her and below decks she's almost there - commensurate with her age of course!
