It is not often that a well equipped and turn-key Cruising Trawler hits the market in some of the worlds best cruising grounds, La Paz Mexico in the Sea of Cortez.

MV Avalon was built by Sunnfjord Boats of Tacoma, WA. in 1984 and was designed by Ed Monk, who had a long history of designing boats for the Pacific Northwest.

Purchasing a boat in Mexico can have some tax advantage, plus the boat is already where you want to start cruising.   When buying a boat in Mexico, all of the title transfer, paperwork and funds transfers are handled in the United States by a Marine Documentation Services Company for your convenience and peace of mind.
