Passagemaker TY 485 built in Belgrade
 

This is an unbelievable trawler-motor-sailer that has completed an unbelievable journey that most of us just dream about!! This boat was manufactured in Belgrade, Serbia and has sailed through Hungry, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands before entering the English Channel. Sailed around the British Isles and through the locks of Scotland into the North Sea. Sailed to Iceland, Greenland to Canada. Then to the St. Lawrence River through the Great Lakes to Chicago, down the Illinois River, Gulf of Mexico to St. Petersburg, FL. So, you can see that she is a true blue water trawler-motor-sailer!

Accommodations include two forward staterooms with bunk beds, thus sleeping 4, and a Master Stateroom Aft with queen berth. The interior is beautiful teak with salon and full galley and dinette. The Pilothouse electronics include radar, Garmin 3006C GPS/Plotter, Ship to Shore, Garmin fishfinder, and Vetus AutoPilot.

These trawlers are designed in accordance with Lloyds  for category 1 (unrestricted operating / sailing area), which is much better than the EU and other Classification Societies and the  CE-A require. Complete stability calculations to USCG offshore requirements are included in the design package. All calculations are also cross referenced against ABS requirements to ensure that the design meets world-wide standards and specifications.

In the case of KITS, all plate parts belonging to the hull, deck and superstructure that are accurately cut to size are included. The parts are marked with the appropriate part number and engraved matching marking lines to assist in the assembly and location of the part in its position. Cutting method is Plasma / Oxygen, ensuring highest accuracy and smooth edges.
 
Plate parts are cut from Lloyds approved A Grade Shipbuilding quality STEEL that has been coated with factory applied Sigma weld MC welding primer.  We use and recommend steel plate that has the official designation ISO standard 10474 or EN 10204 with 3.1.B certificate.
