Broker's Comments

This is an extremely imposing looking Trader 54 Sun Line - she's very easy on the eye, yet one can tell that she's a sturdy vessel indeed, designed for long cruises and even longer stays on board!

Her upper deck is comprehensively equipped with a huge aft deck for relaxation and entertainment and she has a large, protected-feeling fly bridge, which gives commanding views, more entertainment space and could really contribute to safe manoeuvring in close quarters, or alongside.

Down below, we have acres of space in her light, bright and airy saloon, along with an extremely well equipped lower helm position.

As we walk forwards, we descend into the forward living accommodation, with a good sized twin cabin and a huge forward cabin, with island berth and lots of stowage - a day head serves both cabins.

Moving aft, past the feature swooping companionway to the aft deck, we're met by a lower dinette, with plenty of seating and a well fitted out galley, with pretty much everything that you'd expect at home - and maybe more.

Her aft cabin is a real feature - huge and with an offset island double berth, storage everywhere and its own en suite - I just loved the massive windows looking through the transom - a real plus feature!

All in all, a beautiful boat - she does need a real cosmetic buff up and there are jobs to be done - her internal woodwork shows signs of possible past water ingress, though she seemed nice and dry when I visited.

If you're looking for palatial accommodation afloat, for cruises or possibly living - in the right location - then I'd recommend a look at this one.
