>>> 54 Bolger Pilothouse – “L’Tranger

One of the largest Bolger designs I’ve ever seen, and definitely the largest I’ve seen actually in the water. Neat looking, although like most Bolgers, a bit different.

The boat was designed as a motorsailor in 1998 by Phil Bolger to the owners specifications. It was designed as a one/two person liveaboard Chinese-gaff cat auxiliary, to allow several years of continuous 4 season liveaboard in the sub-arctic climate of the Alaskan coastline and the inland waters of the NW Territories. While capable of offshore and coastal cruising, her major design objective is to facilitate river exploration as well as crossing oceans. She was designed as a survival machine with creature comforts. Over $800,000 has been invested. For more details please contact us. Her present location is in the Fraser river and is available for viewing by appointment.
