Northern Lights delivers on the dream. This yacht started as Gorge Buehler Diesel Duck designed and was enhanced by this one time owner. The enhancements takes an outstanding designed and makes it an exceptional blue water trawler that will circumnavigate the world in a safe and secure environment while providing a stable, comfortable journey across the seas.
The engine efficiency, drive train, prop and fuel capacity delivers a 5,000 mile range per Fueling; allowing a trip across the Atlantic and back. The covered quarter deck, extended pilot house, aft stateroom and forward salon with a full galley makes living aboard this vessel a real joy.

This Enhance Diesel Duck was appraised by an Independent Professional Marine surveyor with a replacement value of $650,000. 

 Words from the current Owner: 
" I had Northern Lights professional built in a quality shipyard to start my dream to cruise around the world. Since I was betting my life on her I had her built strong and she has served me well in some serious ocean waves to Central America, the Panama Canal. She has a cruising range of 6000 Miles. I did get as far as South America but then chickened out based on my age (70... I should have left for the world cruise at 60 or so !).
The boat has been a labour of love and a personal journey of discovery of my own self confidence and the ocean world. I would dearly love to have someone pick up my dream and take her around the globe... She will do it... Can you ? I will sell her but my heart will be with her and I will not be far away to help anyone who takes her and loves her as I do. I guess dreams don't die, only the dreamer... "
