This rare classic Monk 42 has been lovingly maintained by her second owners for the last 14 years.  Though she shows the handsome lines and handling advantages of all trunk cabin style trawlers, SPRING BREAK sports some really appealing features that make her rise above the typical trawlers of this vintage, such as:

  • Twin Cummins diesels will cruise at up to 15kts
  • Low hours on engines and genset
  • Two master staterooms with centerline berths and ensuite heads
  • Workshop
  • Galley up with custom cabinetry
  • Engine room access door
  • Fiberglass hardtop over sundeck and aft deck
  • Recent awl grip paint job
  • No teak decks!
  • Twin windlasses on bow pulpit
  • True turnkey condition

SPRING BREAK is one of the nicest trawlers you will find in this price range,  and represents a great value as she is ready to cruise today!
