Sabbatical is a beautiful 1987 Golden Star 37 Sundeck trawler.

With exceptional fuel mileage (1.6 GPH @ 8 knots), long range, enough power to plane, semi-displacement hull with substantial stabilizing and prop protecting keel, 3' 8" draft, all-water anti-fouling paint, dual helms, and full bug screens, she's an ideal Great Loop boat.  She's currently at Polestar Boating Center in Saint Charles Missouri, a location below the closed Illinois River locks. Sabbatical is a turnkey boat, ready to loop.

The high output engine alternators, genset, solar panels, 6 house batteries, inverter, WI-FI extender, 200' of chain rode and RIB dinghy allow for secure comfortable extended living on the hook or on a mooring buoy.

She has more headroom than most trawlers, e.g.: 6' 4" aft cabin, 6' 6" salon, 6' 6" forward cabin and 8' 9" galley area.

A recently installed WiFi CCTV backup camera allows for solo control from the lower helm.

New modern transmissions were installed in 2019.
