View Bio

Misty Pearl is an ideal trawler to provide you access to the cruising lifestyle.  She is a veteran of both the Great Loop and the Down East Circle.  The 15th hull in the series, Misty Pearl benefits from extensive updating as she continues her cruising pedigree.  She is absolutely ready to go wherever your cruising plans might take you.

Misty Pearl is an excellent example of the collaborative efforts of Ted Hood and Howard Chen when they set out to build long range live aboard trawlers that combine highly desirable features such a Portuguese bridge and walk around decks with high end finishes, which make Misty Pearl as comfortable to live aboard as she is to cruise and dock.  High bulwarks around the deck add safety and convenience to her commonsense design.  As she has demonstrated, she is a “Go Anywhere” vessel, comfortable at sea and with the range to cross oceans.

Cockpit: The cockpit is a wonderful place to spend time.  There is plenty of shade from the full boat deck above and you can easily move from either side up to the raised pilothouse.  Large doors on either side of the cockpit make boarding Misty Pearl safe and easy.  Under the cockpit decking is the lazarette hatch with provides access to a large storage area, steering components and the aft freshwater tank.  There is also a transom shower which can be raised to use on the swim platform or in the cockpit. The Grunert Freezer has been decommissioned.

Saloon:  A Diamond SeaGlaze Dutch door leads into the saloon which has an L shaped leather settee to port with storage underneath.  There is an adjustable table which raises and lowers as well as folds for dining and socializing. The entertainment center to starboard contains a newly installed Bluetooth-compatible Clarion Stereo and a 36” flat-screen TV.
