Boat Location: Satellite Beach, Florida. "Cat III", a wonderful Bristol 42, is a blue-water-ready trawler looking for the next owner to take care of her and continue the adventure.

She is a comfortable, efficient and economical cruiser.

With two staterooms, each with their own head, she is perfect for a couple or family.

Cruising easily at 7.5 knots (1800 rpm), she runs efficiently - burning 2.5 gallons per hour.

This allows a nearly 1000 mile range with the existing 360 gallon tank.

Having run it to the Abacos twice in the past two years, we know what she is capable of, and where she can venture to...She is a sturdy, well-portioned boat that is extremely comfortable, capable, and reliable.
