New Model: Goose 43 Trawler

Goose yachts is an interesting new builder which comes from Turkey, and presents its first model the 43 Trawler, which features to say the least an original exterior.  Also a rare occurrence for an explorer cruiser and yacht is that the 43 Trawler is build in cold molded mahogany and epoxy resins method. Interestingly the original exterior looks offer a clever layout plan both inside and outside.  For example the 43 Trawler is a full ship like walk around with deep more then one foot bulwarks from bow to stern. Not bad for a cruiser measuring thirteen meters! As the curved rising shear line amidships notes the passageway to fore is split by four rising steps.  The interior offers a main deck with all the convivial areas; astern L-shaped galley looking to the aft cockpit by the patio door, settee, and an L-shaped dinette in the lower part. Three steps up lead to the raised part which features another L-shaped settee to port side of the helm station to starboard. Below is two cabins, with an owners room to fore, and a twin berth cabin amidships.  Power is twin Yanmar 330hp which give max speed of 20 knots, and a 10 knots cruise.
