This Independent Shipwrights vessel named “Ocean Romancer” is one of the few that was custom designed for personal use. She was launched in 1995 as a westcoast trawler. The design began a few years earlier. From the hull up, she was designed and completed by Jim Goble. He took his time to build and complete this spacious custom yacht to the quality level that stands out today. The tough hull came from the mould that was created for Independent Shipwright by a well known boat builder Roy Brown. He opened up Independent Shipwrights during the late 70’s. Roy was trained in New Zealand on hull shape, design and structural strength. This hull design and the boats they produced were targeted for the Pacific Coast offshore fishing fleet. Thus Jim Goble created this beautiful custom personal vessel from the 42ft hull and named her Ocean Romancer. But she is now up for sale. She is moored in Nanaimo BC, and open for viewing. This is a gorgeous west coast sturdy boat that can take you into amazing places. Call anytime and let’s get you onboard for a look.
