BEAR is a great example of the Eagle Trawler. These well laid out, single stateroom, pilothouse yachts are exceptionally commodious and have a tremendous amount of storage space. Great boats for extended cruising and live aboard application! This particular example has been nicely maintained by her current owners who are finishing up a "great loop" cruise and she has been extensively upgraded to optimize that passage including solar panels, electronics upgrades and many other items..
The Transpac Eagle 40 trawlers are highly regarded for their fit and finish with a full varnished Burmese Teak interior with varnished teak and holly soles throughout. With her 6 opening ports, 3 large hatches and numerous fixed and sliding windows (all opening ports and hatches and sliding windows have screens) provide copious amounts of natural light and ventilation. When cruising during cooler seasons a Newport Dickinson diesel cabin heat system has been fitted in the Salon and a Heater Craft engine driven or "bus" type heater easily keeps the interior warm. Extensive 12 volt lighting with numerous overhead dome style lamps and some swivel style reading lamps. Headroom is 6'-4" in the salon, 6'-8" in the pilothouse and 6'-6" in the stateroom.
Starting forward is the Private Stateroom featuring a true island queen berth of 6'-8" length by 60" width. Below the berth are two large "cargo" drawers and a locker. Additional storage is to be found in a large locker with shelves and smaller locker to starboard and a bureau with several drawers and a hanging locker to port.
The large Head is aft and to starboard and has a day access door adjacent to the steps and private access from the stateroom. Thwartships running vanity with laminate type counter top and stainless steel sink with H&C pressure water, generous storage in 3 lockers and electric W.C. plumbed via a Y valve to the holding tank.

The Pilothouse has the helm station with all navionics and vessel controls to starboard and 6'-4" bench seat and pedestal table aft and to port. There are access doors to the side decks P&S. Forward and to port of the helm is a large navigation area for charts and flip top type access to chart storage. Aft and to starboard is a bureau with locker and drawer as well as a book rack.
Down 3 steps to the Salon & Galley; immediately to port is the u-shaped Galley with laminate type counter surfaces, large deep single basin composite granite sink with pressure H&C water ( sink and faucet installed in 2015). Below there is storage in a large locker and four large drawers. Additional storage is found along the forward bulkhead in dish racks and drawers. The 3 burner gimbaled Force 10 propane stove with oven is outboard. Opposite to starboard is a pantry cupboard with several shelves and the Tundra dual voltage refrigerator freezer.
Immediately adjoining the Galley is the Salon with double pedestal high low table and 6'-2" by 6' L-shaped settee with storage under. The pedestal table can be lowered to berth height when desired. An additional locker is outboard and forward. Opposite to starboard is a 6'-4" straight settee with storage under. At the forward end there is entertainment equipment.
A door just to starboard of c/l provides access from the salon to the aft deck.
All electronics (except flying bridge electronics) are located at the helm station starboard side of the pilothouse.
Wired for 12 volt DC and 120 Volt AC service. A Freedom 3000 watt inverter easily handles lighter loads when off the dock. The current owners have done extensive 12 volt upgrades 2014-16 to facilitate stays on anchor for up to 3 full days without having to conserve usage of the 12 volt system; see below.

BEAR is a great example of the Transpacific Marine built Eagle 40 Trawler. Her current owners have found her an exceptional vessel for doing their dream Great Loop cruise along with other regional cruising. They are only selling as they will now be solely cruising the coast of Maine for shorter durations.
Many boats look like they have done every mile of the Great Loop but this Eagle 40 has enjoyed caring owners as evidenced by her tidy appearance and thoughtful upgrades. She is in every respect ready to repeat that voyage with her new owners or anywhere else they may choose to take her.
