Salty Lady is one of those special boats that are rarely found for sale. Its even more difficult to find one with twin engines! This 1990 Independence 45 is one of only 18 built by Hans Christian in Taiwan before moving production in 1996 to the U.S. builder, Cherubini.

Salty Lady is a sturdy raised pilothouse trawler intended for those who take their cruising seriously. Designed by James Backus and Gary Grant, she's built on a semi-displacement hull with moderate beam, hard aft chines to reduce roll (rather than rounded bilges common to most displacement designs) and a long, prop-protecting keel.

This well-maintained trawler is powered by dependable twin Ford Lehman diesels that offer excellent maneuverability and a cruising speed of 7.5 knots at an economical 4.5 gallons per hour.

Her comfortable interior offers two spacious staterooms, two full heads, a nicely organized galley up and a large salon that opens to her covered aft deck. The raised pilot house has easy access to the wide port and starboard side decks, making line handling safe and easy.

Being given the best of care by her knowledgeable owner, she is in excellent condition and awaits the change of command. So, if you are looking for stability, comfort, economy, dependability and safety for both vessel and crew, Salty Lady is a "MUST SEE"!
