Trawler 38

M.V. Port Hunter was built in 1984 and originally used as a 38ft working trawler out of Newcastle.

Since being purchased in 2016 by her current owners, she has been fully restored into a comfortable family entertainer with a large galley and abundant light.  She has an airy feel about her and is now a Pittwater treasure.

Her hull is dynel sheathed over solid timber.  M.V Port Hunter now has a raised foredeck which has an enclosed head in the forepeak. There is a generous saloon area alongside the galley which is directly above the engine room. Situated aft is a comfortable dining and lounge area with a sofa that converts to a pull out double bed.

The engine room is neat and tidy and features a well maintained Gardner 95HP 6cylinder diesel with full service history.

Overall she is well maintained and a vessel to be proud of.  Bursting with charm and history.

Perfect for family outings on Pittwater, coastal exploring or a leisurely cruise around Australia.
