If you are looking for the a vessel that provides top notch construction, with unparalleled attention to detail and seaworthiness let me introduce you to this gorgeous Lowland yachts long range trawler “Sea E O”.

Upon setting foot on “SEA E O” you realize you are not on-board your typical trawler, but in fact a small ship, and this Dutch masterpiece is built as such. This vessel measures 68′ yet it feels considerably larger due to it’s steel construction and clever layout. “Sea E O” is a long range trawler equipped with twin Gardner diesels that can travel up to 3000NM when filled with 3,000 Gallons of fuel which makes her one of the most efficient yachts in her class with a fuel burn of 1 gallon per nautical mile at a cruising speed of 8 knots. You will be hard pressed to find a vessel from 1985 more capable and well kept. “Sea E O” comes ready to cruise with dual Generators, stabilizers, inverters, fuel polishing system, and a 60GPH water maker. Refit in 2010 by her previous owner and spoiled over the last few years by her current owners, this vessel has been maintained and updated like clockwork, from the new Mahogany flooring in the saloon, to the new anodized top wrapped in gray canvas that now covers the flybridge from the blistering Florida sun, the owners spared no expense while owning this floating marvel in Dutch shipbuilding.

Her interior boasts a 4 stateroom layout, two symmetrical staterooms aft of the ship, a full-beam master midship as well as a VIP stateroom that can also be used as a crew quarters forward ship, each equipped with full bathrooms that have abundant ceiling height. The aft staterooms are accessible by one of two gorgeous Teak finished staircases separated by the vessel’s engine room, which is meticulously well kept and labeled. The salon features a very spacious layout with outstanding brightwork and freshly refinished upholstery, dressed in faux leather due to it’s superb resistance to stains and fading, a pop up entertainment system that consists of 42″ HDTV and surround sound system. The galley is starboard, between the wheelhouse and saloon and comes equipped with a high-rise bar as well as 4 pivoting bar chairs, a functioning electric hood and faces a wheelhouse dinette that shares a 180 degree view of the water just trailing the captains chair. On the port side of the wheelhouse you will find a navigator’s desk as well as a matching access door to port and starboard. Forward ship you have the Master and VIP accommodations as well as the washer and dryer, access to the anchor locker and all of the ships manuals as well as service logs.
On top of the mechanical upgrades and overall maintenance of the vessel, the owners also added modern artwork, as well as tons of tasteful touches ranging from an aft deck shade, all new cushions for the flybridge, all the way to the leather wine rack next to the dinette.
