Whisper Yacht Description

Whisper is a full displacement pilothouse trawler.  She is named for her almost noiseless operation.  Custom built, in the USA, by Legacy Yachts she is perfectly suit to the long term cruising needs of a couple.  If you love everything about sailing short of hoisting the sails Whisper is the boat for you!!!

Whisper is on her cradle and covered in a custom tarp for the winter.  The vessel's bottom is recently paint.  Just add water for Spring launch.  

Call to schedule your private showing today. 


She is a rugged full displacement boat with a full keel, canoe stern, single screw, bow thruster, enclosed aft pilothouse set-up for comfortable cruising by two people, and with many features not often found on a boat this size. She comes with most of the gear you will need. Its main engine has only 1,246 hours of use and its generator has only 48 hours of use.

Whisper is a unique ownership opportunity. The semi-custom design and look of this boat is distinctive drawing admiring attention of others at every port. Its “yellow” deck and pilothouse coloring allow Whisper to be more visible on the water particularly in a fog.
