ALL Helmsman Trawlers feature proven, solid construction methods, exceptional craftsmanship, abundant use of quality materials, and capable, modern, wide-beam hull designs.
The new Helmsman Trawlers 43E Pilothouse is the evolved second generation version of the 43 Pilothouse, which was introduced in 2015 to expand upon the popular Helmsman Trawlers 38 Pilothouse model.
The 43E alters the shape and dimensions of exterior windows, modifies the pilothouse roofline and rainwater handling, and adds additional interior sound attenuation features including full acoustic lining of the hull around the master stateroom.
She retains the unique lengthened “low rise” pilothouse design, which offers an open connection with the salon, effective rear visibility from the helm, and a comfortable seating / dining area while underway or in port. The full-beam main salon is extraordinary -- in its expansive measurements, its ability to accommodate owners and guests comfortably, and in its stunningly broad views through many large opening windows. The rich joinery is classically nautical and finely constructed. A day head directly off of the salon is an extremely practical feature with guests aboard. The salon dinette and day head can be enclosed to create a private convertible suite for guests.
The master stateroom is roomy, with larger and deeper hanging lockers than on the 38 Pilothouse. Storage shelves line the walls, and drawers and lockers provide additional storage. The guest stateroom features a double berth, a hanging locker, storage lockers and drawers.
Exterior features include a high bow, midships access for boarding, and a larger cockpit with a full-length cover. Deep pilothouse side-deck footwells and wide flybridge access stairs port and starboard increase this boat's practicality and safety in all weather conditions. The flybridge accommodates a choice of layouts -- center helm with L-shaped settee, or a starboard helm with U-shaped dinette. The boat deck is very large, with plenty of space for a dinghy and/or deck chairs. The entire upper deck is ringed with a no-drip edge.
Construction quality is immediately evidenced by thick deck sections, deep gel coat, sturdy welded double-rung rails, quality hardware, abundant teak (on the interior only!) and extraordinary fit and finish.
Standard propulsion is a Cummins QSB 6.7 litre 380 hp electronically-controlled common rail engine. Other hp ratings (up to 550 hp) are available.
Minimal exterior maintenance and reliable, economical propulsion systems allow owners to spend more time cruising. A wide range of options and custom configurations are available for order. We’d like to talk with you about your ideas!
Price is for the base model, delivered Seattle, WA or Charleston, SC, including all U.S. duties. Subsequent transportation may be additional. Canadians and other non-U.S. residents should inquire about pricing for non-U.S. deliveries.
