Just Back From The Shipyard and Completed New Bottom Job

The DownEast 40 was an original design by Arthur DeFever whose talents have brought forth many successful long-range, seaworthy powerboats. Unlike most trawler yachts on the American market today, the Downeast trawler 40 is not built in the Orient but In Santa Ana California USA, where it shares production facilities with the popular Down Easter line of cruising sailboats.  In the DownEast Trawler 40 you will find seagoing characteristics derived from fishing trawlers to make the boat comfortable in rough seas combined with roominess to provide the amenities of modern life.
