Privateer Trawler 65 review

Manufacturer:

The Privateer Trawler 65 is not only the largest boat that the Dutch yard has ever built but it’s also one of the most interesting.

The owner of hull number one, taking into account the enormous flybridge you get on the 65, decided that enough outdoor space was enough and therefore enclosed the aft end of the saloon, which means no cockpit.

But take one look at the wonderfully cosy saloon, which because it is closed off at the aft end feels more like a room in a house than the saloon of a boat, and you can’t help but praise this novel idea.

Two snug armchairs slot into teak enclaves either side and a pair of comfortable L-shaped mini sofas and movable tables make up what is a brilliantly sociable area, with wonderful panoramic views out of the vast square windows.

As a place to sit in the warm and watch the world drift by it is spot on and makes for the perfect cosy night cap spot, too.
