'Yachting Monthly' described the Trapper 500/501 as ".... a popular all-rounder, well balanced and easy to handle for family pottering, yet capable of offshore cruising and even gentle racing"
This example was originally purchased as a "Lewmar" demonstration Boat and given her current age she is presented in very tidy condition throughout and must be one of the best on the market.
This would make an ideal starter Yacht for a family or crew, and would be very good value for money.
Early viewing is highly recommended.
