Paradox II is an exceptional example of one of the best kept secrets of the trawler world. Most people have heard of Diesel Ducks, designed by George Buehler and built by Seahorse Marine in mainland China. What many do not know is that Seahorse Marine also builds a rugged, full displacement long range cruiser, the Seahorse 52. The hull form is all sailboat (the Mandarin 52 to be precise) and Bill Kimley worked with Blaine Seeley to develop a new layout and deck to upgrade this proven hull form and convert it into an ocean ready trawler.
Paradox II is an ideal couple’s cruiser, featuring an owner cabin aft (amidships) with guest cabin forward. The interior features finely crafted teak joinery, granite countertops balanced with white laminate inserts with teak and spruce soles. You will appreciate the placement of windows and lighting for visibility as well as hatches, portlights and dorade vents for air circulation. The interior includes air conditioning for climate control. The layout aboard Paradox II has a pleasing arrangement that creates a natural transition from one area to the next. This Seahorse 52 is truly in tip top condition. The care and attention to detail is everywhere.
Paradox II’s profile is pleasing with her sailboat – through the water friendly – hull topped with a raised pilothouse trawler deck. Below her flybridge, she has a raised pilothouse with reverse raked windshield. To the unfamiliar it is hard to tell from a distance if you are looking at a Selene, Kadey-Krogen or a Nordhavn, the Seahorse 52 is in that same ocean crossing breed.
This Seahorse 52 is a full displacement trawler with proven ocean crossing capabilities. The performance aspects have been designed for functionality, utility, and reliability. For 52-feet, you will have a difficult time finding a better overall trawler value.
