New Model: Rhea 43 Trawler

French builder Rhea presents the 43 Trawler, what is the first of a new range. The 43 Trawler is the smallest for this new range from Rhea which has a future program of five models with a maximum length of 67 feet. But today the 43 Trawler also stands as the flagship of this French boat builder. Rhea's 43 Trawler reflects the recent trend of Explorer Cruisers who offer a semi displacement hull with stable medium speeds and a longer range capability. Having the influence of the US trawler looks outside the 43 reflects generous seamanship influence with deep side bulwarks covered in teak, a very livable main deck saloon with galley inside, and a large dominant second helm station up top. Below accommodation is for a two cabin, two head layout. Rhea unlike other builders also selected traditional propulsion system with line shaft as its choice. Power is from twin 300hp engines.
