Are you one of those captains who is drawn to classic lines of the Europa style trawler but wanted the upgrades and convenience of a newer boat or just did not want the cost or hassle of an expensive refit? If so Courageous is a unique opportunity. She is 1987 42' CHB Europa Trawler that has gone through a loving 13-year restoration with many upgrades making her a true luxury vessel capable of long term cruising. Her custom beautiful blue hull will turn heads in any anchorage or at the dock.

You will find stepping inside the main saloon is a warm and inviting experience. This is not just because of her diesel forced air heat but the classic teak of her vintage nautical interior and her comfortable biscuit upholstery. Her layout is perfect for entertaining with a galley separated from the main saloon by a breakfast bar perfect for two. The cook will appreciate the completeness of full service galley with a Magic 3 burner propane stove, oven and microwave. A large Norcold refrigerator with separate freezer and refrigerator keeps ships stores chilled or frozen, and when it is time for happy hour you will have plenty of ice with her on board ice maker. She has plenty of entertainment options with TV both in the main saloon and master suite and stereo system that extends its speakers outside. A few steps down from the main saloon you find sleeping quarters for 6. The captain and first mate will enjoy a master suite with a walk around queen and an abundance of hanging closets and storage lockers. Little touches of classic luxury like the reflection of chrome framed ports and the sparkle of traditional jeweled overhead lights enhance these quarters. Her head includes the unique advantage of a small tub and yes there is enough water for this luxury. The Fresh water system is built around 2-100 gal stainless steel water tanks backed up by a water maker and Iso-Temp water heater that works off either 110 or engine heat.

 On Deck:
The Europa styling makes walking around the traditional teak decking both inviting and safe. A short way up the ladder you find an enormous fly bridge shaded by an overhead bimini. What a beautiful place to enjoy the passing scenery as cruise down the inside passage or watch the sunset with friends on a warm summer evening. Settling down in your favorite anchorage is simple and relatively clean affair because her CQR anchor and 300 ft of chain are managed with the convenience of an electric windless and fresh water wash down. When it s time to go ashore and do a little exploring, access from Courageous is also a very civilized event. The convenience of Seawise Hydraulic Dingy Davits lowers a stable 12 Ft AquaPro Tender and a 30 hp Tohatsu.

 Engine and Mechanical:
Stepping down into her engine room is a surprisingly unique experience. Not only is it spotless but trimmed in teak. You just don t find that on boats today. Her power pack is a simple fuel efficient Ford Lehman 225 HP diesel with low hours that push her along at a comfortable 7 knots burning only 4 gallons/hr. Unlike many boats of this era her fuel tanks are long lasting stainless steel not aluminum. Many single engine vessels of this size have been notoriously challenging to maneuver in close quarters but the addition of both bow and stern thruster make negotiating tight slips a breeze.

 Electrical and Electronics:
When cruising AC power is available through a 4 kw Northern Lights Generator supported by new no maintenance batteries replaced in 2015 with a 3000-watt Outback inverter. Her electronics are built for long term cruising an electronic package built around an Raymarine Navigation system that includes an integrated GPS, Plotter and Radar tied to the convenience of an Auto Pilot. A mirror image of the electronics package is available on Flybridge as well.

 Notes and Extras:
She has been refitted stored under cover for winter and kept in perfect shape. Courageous is one of those boats you just don t find anymore. She is just waiting for the new owner to stock up on ships stores, move aboard and enjoy a once in a life time summer adventure down the inside passage or as a classic and comfortable live aboard home.
