Prize was created by her owners and Sam Devlin prior to and as a precursor to the variety of “trailerable” trawlers that hit the market in 2005/6. The owners liked the Surf Scoter 26 design and while Sam’s shop was fully engaged with a 45’ trawler build at the time, they went to Legendary Yachts www.legendaryyachts.com, a highly competent wooden boat builder in Washougal, WA, got together to create Prize with Sam consulting on the project.
The design concept is for a vessel that can trail to inland waters, as well as allow one way touring on the water with the return via trailer. When on the trailer, as in the water, she is fully self-contained, so no need for a motel. You have your own Recreational Vehicle on and off the water.
She is easily driven and cruises between 7 and 20 knots (at less than 4 GPH) with a top speed of 26 knots. Prize is a veteran of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers and Puget Sound and been often trailered to Westport to fish off the Washington coast. Her sistership Zelda Belle, also built at Legendary Yachts at the same time, has cruised the IntraCoastal Waterway, the Atlantic Ocean and the waters of the Bahamas, having crossed the Gulf Stream to cruise Abaco in 2012.This is the opportunity to own a beautiful head-turning, and highly publicized (due to a full article in PASSAGEMAKER by Bob Lane as well as cover girl stints on SOUNDINGS and PASSAGEMAKER) turn-key Devlin boat only needing your provisions aboard to be ready to voyage anywhere and anytime you desire. Prize is priced to sell at $98,900, significantly less than today’s replacement cost. Prize is stored in Olympia, Wa. Contact Sam for an appointment to see her. 360 402 9824 or email@example.com
