During Power & Motoryacht’s first Reader Panel boat test, Robert Brathune of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida tells Executive Editor Capt. Bill Pike what he thinks of the Garcia Trawler 54. The 54 was just weeks from transiting the Atlantic on her own bottom. Having already made an Atlantic crossing for a stateside debut, the boat was scheduled to return to her home port in France.
Both Catherine Brathune and her mother Carol were favorably impressed with the Garcia Trawler 54. They liked virtually everything onboard, from the European styling of the 54’s interior to the her trawlerish, slo-mo speeds.
