Ken and Karen enjoy working with their customers to make the purchase of a new or used trawler an enjoyable experience. They will help you find the right trawler for your planned usage and your preferred amenities. Ken and Karen have personally cruised in many different sizes and types of trawlers as they took delivery of them from the manufacturer, delivered them to customers, or took them to boat shows. These experiences allow them to shed a lot of insight on selecting a trawler for you that will fulfill your expectations.

After the purchase, Ken and Karen will spend as much time as their customers need to become familiar with the operation and maintenance of their trawler. They will explain the mechanical systems and will provide hands-on maneuvering and handling of the trawler. In some instances, the owners of the brokerage trawler will do this since the trawler is at their location.

Purchasing a trawler from Trawlers Midwest will be fun from start to finish with the end result being a satisfied customer that can look forward to many years of enjoyable cruising.
