17.7m Trawler – FV Marissa **PRICE REDUCTION**

Price: $180,000 + GST (new-price)

The FV Marissa’s sale price has been reduced to $180,000 + GST. An inspection of the vessel will not disappoint. The FV Marissa presents in excellent condition and is considered the best McLaren built trawler on the Eastern Seaboard.

Currently operating in the NSW Ocean Trawl Fish Northern Zone, the FV Marissa is a beamy and practical fishing platform, purpose built for trawling the Australian east coast. Purchased by the current owner in 2018, the FV Marissa had an extensive refit with a new insulated and fibreglassed fish room added to the vessel and conversion back to fish trawling operations. The main engine is the highly-regarded and reliable Gardner 8L3B and a turbo-charged 4cyl. Isuzu was recently fitted to drive the fishing gear hydraulics. The layout of the vessel is very-practical, the operation is fuel efficient and the main hull, deck and superstructure are in excellent condition.

The vessel is a turn-key operation and comes with an extensive history of fishing marks generated from over 40 years in the industry.
