Broker's Comments

The Trapper 500 is a good all round yacht

Side decks are wide and accessible, with a good size foredeck.

They have a good ballast ratio, making them great seaworthy boats, quick in light winds due to good hull shape and a generous sail plan

Below, is spacious and and will easily accommodate two couples or a family for long weekends.

The current owner has owned her for the last 26 years and has maintained her himself, but recently she has undergone some updating and has been re-wired above and below deck via a professional contractor.

The hull was epoxied from new and re-epoxied in 2011 and anti fouled 2018

Standing rigging replaced 2002.
