M/V Cowboy offers a rare opportunity to cruise the only Cape Horn trawler that has both a cockpit and a flybridge. She was custom built by her original owners who were tournament sport fishermen and built a Cape Horn to be the safest yacht that would allow them to fish the far reefs of the world. The 2nd owner purchased her for world travel as well but after 2 years purchased a larger vessel. This 3rd and current owner has lived aboard part-time for the last two years while performing and overseeing an update to this very special yacht.

M/V Cowboy was built at the renown A.F. Theriault yard in Nova Scotia and presents in excellent condition.
