The power of a story is incredible. I step aboard a lot of boats during the course of a year, from Princess, Riviera, Sunseeker and Maritimos to name but a few. All absolute luxury. I am impressed by the latest superyacht just developed by Ocean Alexander which can be manoeuvred from your smart phone but does this excite me? Well, let's face it, that is pretty special. But I have to say I get more of a thrill from stepping aboard a boat worth less than $200K that has real character, one which tells a story and where you can see the passion and manual labour that has gone into building her, a boat with real history where you can see the craftsmanship passed down through the generations. I wish I was a fly on the wall fifty years ago heading out through the ocean in search of a catch, in a time when navigation equipment was a sextant and paper chart. 'Jasmin' is one of those character boats,

While this classic trawler style is not for everyone, you can certainly appreciate her charm. Make sure you watch the video.

This Bill Ryan designed and constructed trawler was launched back in the sixties, spent the first chapter of her life as a purpose built fishing vessel. Later she was purchased by one of her original skippers and in 2011 she was re-birthed into a magnificently crafted pleasure boat. Thousands of hours were obviously invested. She was stripped back and then glassed from keel to bulwarks and the results are amazing. Everything onboard 'Jasmin' was created with longevity in mind from the solid carvel planks to oversize stainless steel railings and teak gunwale capping... Absolutely stunning!

A draft of just under two metres has its advantages. In the bow section is the master stateroom with island berth, loads of storage lockers and a TV. For those of you sensitive to the noise of water lapping, no problem here, little or no noise gets through the solid hull timbers, you'll sleep like a baby.

Her engine room is a work of art. A single rebuilt GM Detroit 8V71 diesel sits neatly amidship with plenty of room either side to get around and tinker. Everything is accessible. You even have your own work bench... A real mens shed. The engine starts on the button, not a puff of smoke, just that familiar sound a GM makes. Remarkably quiet however when underway, aided by a well insulated engine room and exhaust silencer.

Her current owner was looking for an adventure, a trip of a lifetime which had remained on his bucket list for ever. After years scrolling tthe pages of Boatsonline... As many of us do, 'Jasmin' caught his eye. She was then lying in New South Wales. After little negotiation he was soon steaming her back around the coast from Port Stephens. A journey that would take a leisurely six months. TICK, another item off the bucket list!

You are never an owner of this type of classic boat, a mere custodian who looks after her until the next owner comes along. It's time to pass on the baton.... Could this be you?
