This Long Range custom built trawler was specially designed by Coe M Best Jr. He worked closely with the boat builder A E Hingle at a boatyard in LaCombe La. You will see that the workmanship is of the highest quality. To hold the title of a Long Range Trawler it was essential to construct this boat with safety factors being a high priority. Having fuel capacity in excess of 3,400 gals., fresh water almost 600 gals., a 40 Gph water maker, and equipped with Paravane Stabilizers, brings peace of mind when crossing blue water oceans.Ã?Â
