The PERFECT Great Loop or liveaboard boat.
First Light is the latest version of the sundeck series of trawlers built by Marine Trader. The interior of this boat is flat out gorgeous, and with a wide 14'6" beam there is a ton of living space and storage. A Great Loop veteran, she is ready to do the trip again.
Powered by single Cummins 5.9L 230hp diesel engine (with 2500 hours) that has had the aftercooler and heat exchanger serviced in 2019, she'll happily cruise at 8 knots all day long. An 8.5KW Kohler generator (with 700 hours) provides plenty of power away from the dock.
The teak-free low maintenance exterior coupled with a luxurious wood interior makes this boat a great cruising platform for two couples or a family. The large aft sundeck provides additional living space for dining and relaxing. She even comes with a pair of wireless headsets - great when docking, anchoring, or going through a lock during the Great Loop.
First Light is located at our Cheboygan,MI facility and is available for showings by appointment.
