!978 Fiberglass diesel Trawler built by Tyler Boat Co., East Tunbridge UK.
Peregrine has been a faithful and rugged family cruiser off the Blue Hill peninsula these past 16 years.
We are now downsizing, too many boats. She is one of two large boats we own, the other is a sailboat and we prefer sailing so, Peregrine is now sadly, up for sale.
She is complete and ready to cruise as is. Peregrine is sparse and utilitarian in finish below, with all the basic creature comforts. Limited brightwork and frills. She could use fresh interior paint and some minor TLC.
She has been pulled for the season and she can be seen by appointment in Orland Maine.
Peregrine is solid and heavily built, weighs in at +/- 6 tons. She cruises at 6-7 knts while sipping fuel.
Peregrine is approx 28′ length, approximately 9′-6" beam , she draws approximately 3′-6" at the keel.
I am 6′-1" , 195# and can stand and move around easily down below and in the pilothouse with headroom to spare. I do have to duck to enter the head bulkhead. Headroom in the pilothouse is 77"-78", headroom down below is 74"-75".
