Mediterranean Trawler 52 Class A (OCEAN), SOTERIA is for sale
December 5th, 2022
Launched in 2018, Trawler 52 Class A (OCEAN) SOTERIA was conceived and built for a yachtsman as his first foray into clockwork motor yachting after many years of bluewater sailing. He looked closely at the Privateer range of trawlers, but sadly the builders could not offer him the level of customisation that he required, so he commissioned his own design having found that for him, there was no trawler on the market that was properly set up for warm water cruising. He commissioned PROTO Ltd and Marlin Yachts to build SOTERIA for him and has hugely enjoyed using her since build.
She is constructed of epoxy resin composite with a 3 ton keel and is constructed to CE Category A. she has a Cummins QSB 6.7 305hp main engine with an Evinrude get me home. A 12 kW Whisper Gen provides onboard power and she has solar array. She also comes with a watermaker – crucial for cruising in Mediterranean waters.
Her interior is in maple with an owner’s stateroom, VIP cabin and separate crew quarters. She has a large main saloon and great galley with dishwasher, washer dryer and really good galley equipment.
You can have a look at her on this walk through video:
On deck she has plenty of space to enjoy alfresco living which is critical for warm water use. Her flybridge is enormous and she also has a large aft deck and easy boarding if you are stern to moored. Her wide side decks are easy to use and well protected.
One of the signatures of SOTERIA is her lovely dark green topsides livery, which looks very smart.
She has a top speed of 14 knots and her cruise of 10 knots provides a range of around 750 nautical miles so she has long legs. She is professionally maintained and gleams throughout. Her engine room looks like an operating theatre.
When she was originally delivered her decks were fitted with Flexi-Teak. However the owner wasn’t satisfied with them so in 2021 these were replaced with beautiful Burma teak decks which look amazing.
SOTERIA is a perfect solution for easy, Mediterranean cruising with 2 couples and comes with a myriad of unique ideas and features which have been incorporated into her custom build as a result of her owner’s many years of experience of cruising the East and Western Mediterranean.
