All About Willards

Read about the various Willard models here . . .

This is a site by and for owners of Willard Marine's line of production trawlers from the 60's through 2003.  The line was unique for being the first production fiberglass "trawlers" built (before Grand Banks, Krogen, Nordhaven, etc.), and for featuring full displacement hulls in a small size.

(Note: This site is not owned or endorsed by Willard Marine Inc. It is a privately operated owners site.)

Sadly, due to unexpected circumstances we have to put Foley's Fault up for sale. Over the last 2.5 years we have spent countless hours and over $30,000 US into improving our boat.

Well it has happened, 0n 8/7/2016 the wife and I have purchased the Magic Show.  It is a 40 FBS in pretty good shape.  It is like all boats has several problems which you can expect for a 28 year old boat.  We are still happy to be part of the Willard group.&nbsp
