There has been a long discussion as to the ultimate cruising boat. Everyone has their favorites and there is no one answer. This boat should be in the mix. Constructed as a long rang cruiser, built to tough standards, equipped to facilitate long voyages and maintained to the highest degree. Ready to take you where you have the desire and time to go. Photo is sistership, Photos coming soon. Trojan's 48 Meridian was designed by Blaine Seely as a comfortable, all weather long range cruiser. The semi-displacement hull (the same hull Whittaker Corporation, Trojan's parent company at the time, built as a commercial fishing trawler) has a sharp entry, considerable bow flare, and hard chines aft. Combined with a raised pilothouse, portuguese bridge, and covered aft cockpit she is a comfortable boat offshore or dockside. A total of 13 48' Meridians were built. "Blackdog" is hull #11 in the series. A two time Great Loop veteran, she has carried her liveaboard owners from the Keys to the Canadian Maritimes, throughout the the St. Lawrence Sea-way, the Great Lakes, inland river system and the Gulf of Mexico in safety and comfort. After 10 years of cruising and living aboard, "Blackdog's" owners have moved ashore and reluctantly offer her for sale. Well maintained and continuously updated, this vessel is ready, very willing, and extremely able to begin your new adventures. Black Dog is lying SE Florida.
