1974 Meridian Pilot House

Kent Island, Maryland


Designed by Blaine Seeley.  This 48' Meridian Pilot House trawler offers a unique combination of great sea-keeping combined with a shallow draft of only 3.4'.  The bow flair and deep forefoot prevents plunging into head seas, while aft, the bilges flatten and harden to increase lateral stability.  Powered by twin Perkins diesels, her fuel-saving, semi-displacement hull allows long-range cruising.

In addition to being well equipped for cruising, this boat could make the ultimate live-aboard with its extensive storage, insulated living spaces and 120v lighting and outlets
