Trapper 501 - £8,995

This fine example of the highly regarded fin keel Trapper 501 was built by Trapper yachts at Burseldon in 1988 . She was the last of the class to be built hence the name "Finale". She has been with the present owner since 1993.

Yachting Monthly described the Trapper 501 as " A popular all rounder, well balanced, and easy to handle , ideal for family use but capable of offshore cruising or racing."

Finale benefits from a new Yanmar engine, installed 2007 with only 35hrs use.

A storage cradle is included in the sale. Some interior woodwork requires sanding and varnishing where condensation has caused stains.
