Marine Trader 40 Europa Sedan - 1978/9 - **Now SOLD**  
This 40ft trawler yacht offers plenty of living space, with a large main saloon and equally large galley to port, with two double cabins forward. 
The attractive ‘Europa’ styling features a covered side & aft decks and a large flybridge area. 
A refit was carried out in 2015/2016 to prepare this vessel for a single-handed Round Britain trip and subsequently, the current owner who bought the vessel through ourselves two and a half years ago has additionally spent on a further thorough internal refit that has involved many new domestic improvements throughout her accommodation spaces. 
In early September 2021, a complete repaint of the superstructure & deck areas was completed using a durable two-pack marine paint and all teak has been taken back to bare wood and 5 coats of varnish applied. In July 2021, she was lifted for annual antifouling, replacement anodes and stern gear to be 'dressed' 
Sadly, physical health constraints have overtaken our client and now the decision to sell again has been made. She represents a comfortable, capable, long-range cruising yacht or, equally as a 'well sorted' and comfortable live aboard yacht.

History & Construction  
GRP Hull & Deck, built by Chein Hwa Manufacturing Co, Taiwan in approx. 1978/9 
After many years cruising the eastern seaboard of America including the great lakes and 
intercoastal waterways this boat was based in Florida where she was bought by an English gentleman who shipped her to the UK in 2008. 
On arrival in the UK in early 2008, she was re-engined with very low hour replacement 
engines supplied by main dealers; Hendy Ford of Cosham, Hampshire. 
Fully compliant with EU RCD standards - Post Construction Conformity report carried out in 2014 by HPI CE-Proof. 
A comprehensive refit was commenced by the next owner in 2015/2016 to prepare this 
vessel for a single-handed Round Britain trip, this refit included: 
New bow and stern thrusters with separate battery banks and chargers for each 
New propeller shafts, shaft bearings, stern tubes and shaft seals. 
Replace and rebuild the decks with new beams, glassed in and fitted with brown, 
diamond patterned 'Treadmaster' panels. 
A new hydraulic steering system. 
A complete re-wiring of the whole vessel. 
The overhaul & replacement of the seacocks where necessary. 
New engine and navigational instrumentation. 
New domestic appliances. 
Following that owner's cruise, the vessel was purchased by the current owner (a retired Naval Architect and Marine Surveyor) through ourselves in 2019, since which more significant replacements and improvements (mostly internal, with a view to making the vessel more suited for long-term liveaboard use have been carried out. 
Now, as stated above, most of the internal work has been completed. New protective hatch covers have been obtained and fitted, together with a new cover to protect the Flybridge's instrumentation. The flybridge decks have been upgraded using a rubberoid compound and finished with grey deck paint. The upper helm's varnished wooden wheel has been stripped and re-varnished. All external teak rails and fittings have been stripped back to bare wood and five coats of marine varnish applied.  
NOTE: currently, there are no cushions to the flybridge seating.
