'Traviesa' is on the market for the first time since she was built in 1962. The family that purchased 'Traviesa' from the Hill Bilt boatyard in Seal Beach, CA new in 1962 loved her immensely and kept the boat well maintained throughout their 50+ years of ownership. She was restored to almost new condition in 2011-2013 and then re-planked by the Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op in 2016 with new Mahogany planking using silicon bronze screws. Her frames are steam bent & laminated Oak, bulkheads are ply, and the deck is sheathed marine ply. She just re-launched from the Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op having had more extensive work to make her sound for her next owners, including the hull, topsides and bottom painted. She has a recent survey from April 2018 that documents all the work completed. She has a new Cummins Turbo Diesel 210hp with Velvet Drive transmission, modern electronics (Radar, AIS, Chartplotter, VHF), a Furuno Autohelm and a gorgeous functional layout down below and on deck. She was a regular on Catalina Island diving for lobster and abalone running over from Huntington Beach where she was berthed. 

'Traviesa' is a looker. While she was built in California, the cruising grounds she was meant for are Pacific Northwest up to Alaska and beyond. With the extensive work on the hull and brand new turbo cummins diesel, 'Traviesa' is ready for anything. She sleeps 6 comfortably, has a hot water shower, a bright open interior, and the fly bridge is well set up to seat the entire family with a top deck refrigerator to keep the drinks and hors d'oeuvres cold. The Fly Bridge has a 360 degree view and a full removable Sunbrella weather enclosure. The captains bench is even angled for an ergonomic fit. Her mast and boom assist with launching the tender and she has trolling pole holders built in on the stern for fishing with a large swim step on the varnished transom for a quick dip or a place to rinse your salmon. 

'Traviesa' is a rare find. A beautiful classic trawler that's already had the very costly extensive work that older boats require to take them into the future. She was built in 1962 but with her thorough hull work and new engine she's ready to head for the horizon!
