42' ROYAL LOWELL CUSTOM 42 LOBSTER

Year: 1982
Current Price: US$ 70,000
Located in Salem, MA
Hull Material: Wood
Engine/Fuel Type: Single diesel
YW# 39384-2468921

An opportunity is here to own a 42 foot Lobster Boat designed by one of the famous Downeast Marine Architects, Royal Lowell, and built by his children. Royal Lowell wrote BOATBUILDING DOWN EAST: How Lobster Boats Are Built, his popular guide to designing and building lobster-style hulls in 1977. In 1982, Stephen& Erin, his most recent design, a 42 foot down east lobster boat, went into service as a lobster boat for a high line lobsterman of Beverly, MA.
She has a hard chine hull, probably one of only a couple that he designed. As you may know he was a fan of round hulls. According to the current owner, this boat is the most sea kindly vessel he has ever been in. It moves incredibly easily through the water and, due to this, she is economical to run.
She is fastened throughout with silicon bronze including the chine gasket fastenings.
Included:
New life raft purchased from Landrigan Corporation in East Boston spring 2011
2 Compasses
Robertson AP-1000 Autopilot
Furuno Radar
Furuno GPS-31
Suzuki ES 2800 Color Fathometer
Two VHF radio's
Epirb signal system
2 Survival Suits

She is all set up for lobster fishing and has a cut out stern.

Even if this boat was purchased by a pleasure boater it could be easily converted to a fine peasure craft.

A little effort may generate a little interest...

Does anyone know where this boat ended up? I heard it is a passenger ferry on some island in Maine... Any truth to that?

I wonder if Mousetrap's post sold the boat?
Certainly wasn't the non descriptive OP post that caught my eye.
Is the boat going to work?
