This beautiful Trawler sports quite a roomy and attractive interior; everything laid out right where you need it! If you are looking for economy this model was designed as a fuel efficient cruiser during the early years of high energy prices; right around 1.2 GPH at 6 knots. The 29 Prairie Coastal Cruiser was only in production for two years but has proven to be a much sought after vessel. Although listed at 29' she is actually 32'. Storage space is awesome, there is a shower in the head, the deckhouse galley is well-equipped and her 12' beam offers spacious interior accommodations. Noteworthy is her huge cabin windows that provide a 360 degree view! For a birds-eye-view, move on up to the flybridge where Captain and passengers can relax in comfort while cruising the waterway under a nice size bimini. Further, she is equipped with a refrigerator, separate ice maker, hot and cold water, stove, depth sounder, 2 VHF radios, a 4-bank USB outlet (for connecting an iPad etc.), auto pilot, davits and more.


Walking thru the aft entry door is an L-shaped dinette/settee to port with a seating area that can convert to accommodate additional sleeping. A refrigerator and separate ice maker is located to starboard. Forward and to port, is a spacious galley and to starboard, the lower helm station. Down two steps is a large head, shower and vanity/sink to port with a large cedar lined hanging locker to starboard and forward is a very spacious stateroom with large mahogany lined V-berth, new LED lights and large hatch for natural lighting.

Brokers Comments

This vessel was purchased in Boston, 2014, and has been in fresh water for the past four years until her owners motored her down to her current home at Barber Marina, Elberta, Alabama. Anyone looking for an affordable diesel cruiser with generator and air that will squeeze a lot of miles out of a gallon of fuel will be happy to find this one.
