Description: This is a well known T Brewer
design,bought in 2009 as a trawler and as a project added a mast and furling main and jib.
It turned into a "true motorsailer" as I mainly use the sail power as a hobby/entertainment? Added hydraulic steering and autopilot as well as basic electronics as GPS,depth finder,VHF mounted radio,stereo.
All the changes I made for sailing are truly removable considering if a time wanted to revert to plain trawler can be done,no thru hull bolts,no permanent attachments.

Equipment: copy of email just sent to inquiry thought might be of interest as add info.
Boat is on my home on its trailer,have to remove it from slip as the homeowners association allows one boat slip for homeowner.
I recently purchased a Cape Dory 30 and needed the slip to finish outfitting.
The Nimble has a 50 HP outboard Honda purchased new by prior owner on 08/26/2008 as per invoice.
I purchased the boat in 2009.
Launched in 2010
Hours on tachometer need to double check.
Boat was on my driveway most of 2009 as I replaced all inside panels,re sealed windows,removed RV type of air condition on deck and replace opening with a new hatch
Since then installed
GPS, DepthFinder,VHF radio mounted Teleflex Hydraulic steering,Autopilot RayMarine EVO 100 ,Mast on tabernacle,Main and Jib from Sailrite in 2013,both on CDI roller furling.
It comes with several outboard gas tanks and there is a gas/water separator filter.
As mentioned all the sailing gear is installed in such a way can be removed and returns to be the original trawler version as was careful not to drill any thru deck fittings.
There is only a thru hull below water line as I replaced portapotti with a marine self contained toilet Sealand West Marine #711-M28 Marine Sanitation System,with a 3 ways valve for discharge overboard,pumpout facility.
Uses a selfcontained tank and fresh water flushing so no odors.
Replaced steering wheel original with a Vetus mahogany?.
Modified access to electric panel to accommodate more breakers.
If I remember more stuff will list.
This is not a project boat in as much as I used it until February when family situation events.
To pull it out of the slip just turned the key,motored to ramp and is ready to be used any time.
There are couple of water leaks from two hatches on deck need attention but is so minimal I just continued boating.
If not sold within couple of weeks,will have it bubble wrapped to protect it from the elements,my full attention is now outfitting my new to me Cape Dory and leave by end of August the latest.
On return this winter will see,I am 77 and not sure about how long I can, might be able to push it,if worse comes to be,may have to go to plan B, sale the Cape Dory, move the Nimble close to my daughter and continue fiddling with and just enjoy what I can.
I will be happy to answer any question
