41′ 7″ PENBO trawler yacht
WB No. 230

PENCHANT, trawler yacht

If you’re looking for a boat to live aboard in near luxury, they don’t come much better than this! Carl Lane had her built as PENOBSCOT (Penobscot Boat Works, 1966) to be a floating retirement home while he and his wife seasonally shuttled the Intracoastal Waterway between Maine and Florida. She’s set up for two, with sleeping quarters forward, a raised pilothouse amidships, and a full-width, so-called main lounge (think of it as a parlor) aft. This space really is grand, with big windows, a settee, dining table, desk, and a galley that’s tucked away forward on the port side. There’s even a Franklin fireplace! Sadly, after 43 years, the boat’s second owners have come to the end of their time with PENCHANT and, in fact, have not been able to launch or use her lately. She sits now, uncovered but still surviving, in a Fall River boatyard. They’re hoping for an owner who will appreciate and care for the boat as they have themselves. Family friend Tom Townsend has agreed to be the contact, and you can reach him at 860–460–7654 or plumbstem at sbcglobal.net.

Penchant was launched on April 28th and is now docked at Shaws' boatyard up the Taunton River, in Dighton MA. She is getting the attention she both needs and deserves.
