Elling E3 Freshwater Great Lakes Trawler 'Brigadoon'

Elling E3 Great Lakes Trawler


Out of stock

Ellings are designed and built to cross oceans, while still having the interior finishes of a Super Yacht. Just completed comprehensive $70,000 refit including, Awlgrip paint on hull and deck ($25,000), and complete new chilled water A/C and heating system ($20,000). All systems are in perfect working order and cosmetics are a 9 plus, on a 10 point scale.

‘Brigadoon’ has always been in the Great Lakes (fresh water) except for a year while doing the Great Loop. She is only in the water 4 months per year and then spends the other 8 months tucked inside a heated storage building. She is heavily equipped for both living aboard as well as long-range cruising. Every system has been gone over in detail and put into “like new” condition. The owner has $360,000 invested with receipts and estimates the cost to replace approximately $950,000.

Hull is made of TWARAN/KEVLAR, which is 5 times stronger than steel and 25 times stronger than fiberglass. This is the only commercially available boat that has the ABILITY TO SELFRIGHT FROM A ROLLOVER! Check it out Here

Summer is right around the corner, don’t miss your chance to spend it on the water.
