“Angelina” is a treasure waiting to be discovered. Not a Project Boat.. Uniquely customized and updated by an owner who understands more about wood boat construction (being the grandson of the original builder) and quality marine equipment than most of us can imagine. Unfortunately, the time has come for her to find a new caretaker who can appreciate this 50′ trawler originally launched in 1944 as a working offshore troller built with White Oak Ribs, knees, keel, stringers, and Port Orford Cedar planks and held together with Monel Boat Ring nails. At one time, a helicopter deck was installed for one of the owners. Quality inquiries please. “Angelina” needs to be passed on to someone who understands what a high quality wood boat needs are and can appreciate the equipment and quality workmanship included with the boat.

Vessel Overview

Lindwall Boat works

Lindwall Boatworks was started in 1929 by Charlie Lindwall and operated on Stearns Wharf in Santa Barbara, Calif. The yard was taken over by Charlie's son, Paul (Sugar) Lindwall. 


On Stearns Wharf Santa Barbara ,  Angelina was launched in 1944 under the leadership of the current owner's father Vic Lindwall .. Vic became the owner/skipper of Angelina and fished her commercially for 12 years.  The younger son Paul (Sugar) took over the business and built nine of the first DeFever trawlers.  Angelina was purchased by the Los Angeles CAT dealer, who was the ringleader of the Pacific Cruising Association that hired DeFever to build the prototype.  Angelina was updated and modified based on the principals of the DeFever designs over the years 1958-64 and cruised over a period of 40 years in Southern California, but also Mexico, Alaska and Hawaii.  At one point, she sported a bubble helipcopter to commute from LA to her moorings in the islands.  The current owner Chuck Lindwall bought Angelina in 2003 and rebuilt her completely from the bare hull in California, brought her to the east coast, and has cruised extensively from Ft Lauderdale to Rockport Maine

Surveyor's Comments 2016

The 1944/2008, 50' wood fishing trawler to yacht conversion, "Angelina", was found in exceptional condition. Structurally she appeared in well above average condition, including her hull to deck joint as visible.
