SOLD: Trapper 300, 'Liselle', 8m Cruiser Racer For Sale

902777 orig

RFYC is advertising this yacht on behalf of a member, the details are offered in good faith but are not guaranteed. Because of bereavement and Covid-19 Liselle has not been in the water for approximately five years and now needs some attention to bring her back to her former cosmetic condition, however a professional pre-purchase survey in 2012 stated:

"The Trapper 300 is a popular yacht with very keen owners and a vigorous owners association. Over 180 of these vessels were built during the late seventies and early eighties with Liselle being .. a fine (Mark 2) example and superior to others of this class that we have surveyed. In addition to being structurally sound throughout [in 2012].. Liselle III [had] completely new standing and running rigging, newly updated navigation and safety equipment plus a comprehensive new wiring system with new combination isolator switch and all circuitry routed through new fused switchboards. We find this vessel to be structurally sound throughout, well equipped and fit for purpose."

See: for photographs of a similar yacht in good order (note download from that site seems to be slow) and the Trapper 300 section of for further information.
