This beautiful Trawler sports quite a roomy and attractive interior; everything laid out right where you need it! If you are looking for economy this model was designed as a fuel efficient cruiser during the early years of high energy prices; right around 1.2 GPH at 6 knots. The 29 Prairie Coastal Cruiser was only in production for two years but has proven to be a much sought after vessel. Although listed at 29' she is actually 32'. Storage space is awesome, there is a shower in the head, the deckhouse galley is well-equipped and her 12' beam offers spacious interior accommodations. Noteworthy is her huge cabin windows that provide a 360 degree view! For a birds-eye-view, move on up to the flybridge where Captain and passengers can relax in comfort while cruising the waterway under a nice size bimini. Further, she is equipped with a refrigerator, separate ice maker, hot and cold water, stove, depth sounder, 2 VHF radios, a 4-bank USB outlet (for connecting an iPad etc.), auto pilot, davits and more.
