The 2017 Fathom Element 43 is the newest iteration of the model and is now offered at the Tacoma docks of NW Yachtnet. These expedition-style pilothouse trawlers are built in the Pacific Northwest with the purpose of taking on Salish Sea conditions.
The spacious interior brings the comforts of land to sea. The fully equipped helm is located forward next to a dinette table with generous seating that facilitates guests to keep the skipper company. Stairs lead aft to the salon, where a large dining table sits next to the even larger, fully loaded galley. Below is generous access to the Cummins 425-horsepower diesel engine and two large staterooms, one with island berth. There is also a twin-engine option.
Outside, the covered deck leads to the swim step with ladder aft via a folding transom. With the transom down, the swim step, after deck, and salon are on a single level. Stairs lead up to the flybridge for the best views aboard.
If you’ve got expedition cruising on your mind, the Fathom Element 43 may be right up your alley. Check out nwyachtnet.com for more information. It’s listed price is $585,000 at the time of this writing.
