Year 1973
Length 84'5 ft / 25.73 m


Gaia is a fantastically well equipped custom converted Astilleros de Paraguana Trawler afloat in the Caribbean. She has strong 10mm naval grade steel hull (A131) with a new 6mm alloy superstructure. She provides comfortable accommodation with a stateroom aft with an en-suite combined with 4 double cabins with 2 shared bathrooms for the cabins. All the accommodation is air-conditioned via an LG inverter split system. The saloon area also offers a good space for 8 people to sit down and eat together.

Gaia also offers a full set of Garmin, Furuno, and Raymarine electronics which are all in good working order. Given she is used for commercial diving purposes with her current owner she is very well placed for the job but could equally serve as a private yacht for a family, given the current owners also live on-board. As a result we now welcome all serious questions and viewing requests.

10 mm naval grade steel (A131) with new 6 mm alloy superstructure. New deck, machinery, electrics/electronics, plumbing, anchors/chain, windlass, bulbous bow and furnishings. Originally a high-seas commercial trawler, launched in 1973 she was purchased as an empty hull with integrated fuel tanks but without deck, superstructure or machinery allowing a 100% keel-up refit which was completed in 2010. In order to reduce future maintenance, the following stainless-steel elements were incorporated: bulwark stanchions, hawse pipes, caprail supports and deck/superstructure interface (electrically isolated).
