40' Mainship Trawler 2008



Ruskin, Florida

"KESA"   is an excellent example of the sought after Mainship 400 Trawler.

The Mainship trawlers are said by many to be "the number one most popular boat for the Great Loop. "KESA  has completed the loop and more and is ready to go again. Start with the preferred single 370 HP Yanmar engine with both bow and stern thrusters, which make her economical and easy to handle. A comfortable 2 cabin, single head layout for the cruising couple with an occasional guest is a perfect combo. The salon/galley is very comfortable and inviting. Now consider the wide walk-around side decks, the large cockpit and the visibility from either helm and you have a line handlers dream. The upper deck with its forward helm and ample seating for eight gives the feel of a much larger boat. 

Highlights are: Yanmar 370, Bow and Stern Thrusters, Flybridge Summer Kitchen, Complete Raymarine Electronics, Kohler Generator, Fresh Awlgrip Paint on the hull (2019), She has just recently arrived in Florida having spent her life in the Great Lakes and she is in Excellent Condition.
