The Trapper TS240 is a fast cruiser/racer with fractional rig and lifting keel (hydraulically powered) making her ideal for exploring the shallow waterways of the Norfolk Broads and east coast. This example was purchased by the current owner in 1994. She has benefitted from several upgrades and improvements over the years, including mast lowering gear, hull epoxy treatment, a replacement stainless steel keel box (to prevent common problem of keel corrosion and failure) and new keel lifting hydraulic cylinder and ram, but is understood to now be in need of a little cosmetic TLC. Realistically priced to sell.

MOORING: It's understood that the vessel's current northern Broads mooring could be transferred to the purchaser if required (current cost about £1,438 per annum including storage ashore over winter, paid to March 2019).
