Designed by Arthur Defever, at nearly 84' overall, NSS PATTAM is a gorgeous cruising home and will always be a head turner in any harbor. 

Every once in a while, a boat comes along that is the perfect crusing yacht. No, she will not be one of those pound, pound, go fast, gas guzzlers. To live the true, cruising lifestyle, where you want to get somewhere, yet still have time to smell the roses on the way, stately is more the word that comes to mind. NSS PATTAM is the perfect cruising trawler. Her nearly 3300 gallons of fuel will carry you and your cruising family more than 3000 miles in comfort and style. With four large staterooms, each with its own separate head and shower, there will be lots of room for extra crew, if needed, or for family and guests.

As a cruising trawler, she is totally self-sufficient: a large fuel capacity, to go for those far horizons, a very efficient galley for ease and comfort in the preparation of meals while underway.
