Tortuga is a solid, powerfully built coastal trawler with impressive range. It is a go anywhere, high-bowed open water vessel.
According to Robert M. Lane; Passagemaker author, the Tortuga is “50 tons. Forty-eight feet. Single Diesel. Bow thruster. Flopper stoppers. Four thousand mile range”.
A wonderful add came out in the Passagemaker magazine by Robert M. Lane describing what has to be the most unique trawler that I have ever seen. The Tortuga was built in Maple Ridge BC, by Small’s Marine Enterprise, to be a pocket seiner (a commercial fishing vessel). However it ended up as an exquisite looking pleasure boat that will proudly take one from Alaska to South America without a worry in the world.
Recently improved granite and tile in the water closet and galley add charming warmth to the comfortable spacious main cabin, while upgraded electronics assure safe and sure passage to any place you can imagine. The newly installed water maker and solar system, along with the solid construction of this boat, makes the Tortuga the perfect long range vessel. With 3-5000 mile fuel capacity this Tortuga is sure to finish ahead of the rest!
If you are looking for that one of a kind, eye catching, breath taking, go anywhere vessel, this is the boat for you! Don’t let this one pass you buy.
It is a must see to believe it's beauty.
