One of the advantages of cruising in a trawler is that you have more predictable timing – a steady pace makes forward progress and while running at trawler speeds, time slows, but never stands still. 

The routines of being underway; engine room checks, preparing meals, off watch sleeping and taking the helm punctuate your travel. Day and night merge into one total adventure which ends when you reach your destination.  

Patience and planning are rewarded with a successful arrival that, in reality, merely signifies one more step completed along your chosen path. Enjoyment is consistently enhanced with each safe passage. 

More people want to grow cruising and the good news is that the market is opening up.

The JMYS team has been extremely busy since we last sent out a newsletter update. In fact, we skipped right past the second quarter report and are now merging six months’ worth of news in this report. With the end of the third quarter, the boat show season has also concluded. As the year-end holidays approach our brokerage business remains incredibly active. The JMYS inventory of used trawlers continues to expand and the wave of new buyers continues to surge.

If your plans for the coming year include being a trawler owner-operator, you are searching in a very encouraging climate. Thank you for your continued engagement with JMYS and please keep in contact so that we may know what we can do to assist you with this fantastic lifestyle. Asteady pace will keep you focused and get you closer to fulfilling your cruising ambitions.
