Blue Turtle is the quintessential live aboard cruising trawler. She's a 1974 40' DeFever Passagemaker trawler built in California by Jenson Marine. She has a single engine with bow and stern thrusters which make docking a breeze (you can literally move her sideways). She has a full displacement hull which handles rough seas very well and with a full keel, the running gear is fully protected.  She has been our full-time home and actively cruised for the last 9 years.

Blue Turtle is a classic marine trawler and would make a great Looper boat for The Great Loop.  It includes a large airy salon, two cabins, two heads, full galley, wide walk-around decks and roomy flybridge. If you are looking for a well-built cruising trawler with plenty of storage that can safely take you anywhere, then this boat is definitely a must see! She is ready to move aboard and go cruising.
