1989 Trojan Motor Yacht

Located in Sales Tax Free Warwick, RI

In many ways Sea Fox is a better Motor Yacht today than when she was first launched. I am a licensed Captain and have consistently upgraded her for the last 21 years with things like a custom hardtop and enclosure($25K), solar system ($6K), watermaker ($10K), dinghy crane ($5K), KVH Sat TV, Sirius Stereo Radio, Inverter and more. Her maintenance is second to none with complete records....in fact she comes with an owners manual written by me, an invaluable reference source for her next owner.

Sea Fox has been a safe and luxurious home afloat during 16 voyages south to Florida and the Bahamas, during a Great Loop Cruise and many East Coast excursions. Reliably powered by twin Caterpillar 3208 Diesels with 2100 hours since being rebuilt (3100 hrs total) The hours are low because, while cruising, I run one engine at a time. I cruise at about 6.5 knots in this mode with a fuel savings of about 75% and 1/2 the engine wear. At first I constantly checked the transmission temperature of the engine that was not running but, after seeing no change, I concluded that there was no problem running this way. I have run this way for over 1,500 hours. Sea Fox has all the options to make cruising comfortable including generator, air and heat, intercoms, washer and dryer, and user friendly electronics. Her living areas are spacious and numerous: an enclosed hard top afterdeck with teak furniture, the hardtop enclosed bridge seats 6 comfortably, the open salon with adjacent dinette/lounge seats 10, the galley is down but open to the entertaining and the 2 staterooms (the master aft has ensuite head & stall shower, the forward guest stateroom has an adjacent head and shower) have walkaround queen berths and excellent privacy.

Motor Boating and Sailing asks"....where else is there available a boat that has the Salon of a 53 footer, the features of a 63 footer, and the livability of a 73 footer - and all of this in an American built 40 footer....with a sea friendly ride."

We ask; why buy new? Seriously consider her if you want a proven, economical and affordable long range cruiser or a spacious well equipped liveaboard.

Her summer slip is included in Sales Tax Free Rhode Island. She may be shipped internationally from 2 shipping depots and is close to the Providence Airport. She may be seen in the water by appointment at a nearby marina.

Re: 1989 Trojan Motor Yacht

We have decided it's time to see the rest of the country, so we're buying an RV. I have owned boats for 40 years, so it's not an easy decision, but my girlfriend is more than ready for a change.

Re: 1989 Trojan Motor Yacht

I don't have any recent surveys. I have a 2009 and a 2011 and neither is in electronic format. If you want to see them and are serious about the boat, I would be happy to scan them. I will tell you that everything on the boat is in excellent working condition. We live full time on it in the summer here in RI and lived on it full time year round from 2008 through 2015 while traveling. I have always maintained the boat with an open wallet. If something needed fixing or replacing, it was done.

Dated surveys of no use. Most owners of boats proclaim bristol condition - no offense. I say same thing about my ex wife but for prospective buyer I'd still recommend survey.

I agree that a 7 tear old survey doesn't say much. That's why I didn't mention a survey in the ad.

My email is capnblb@aol.com
