The most recent Tradewinds 47 (the original Tradewinds 47 went out of production in 1988) was a contemporary motor yacht design built in Taiwan and marketed in the U.S. by Marine Trader. Where the original 47 was built on a relatively slow semi-displacement hull, the new Tradewinds 47 rides on a faster modified-V bottom with a sharper entry and slightly more transom deadrise. Her standard two-stateroom layout is common for a boat of this type: a large stateroom forward, a spacious salon with the galley and dinette down, and a roomy master stateroom and head aft. A lower helm was standard, and a sliding door next to the helm provides easy access to the deck. (Note that a three-stateroom layoutidentical to that of the original Tradewinds 47was optional.) Like most Asian imports of her day, the interior of the Tradewinds 47 is completely finished with well-crafted teak joinery. Topside, the full-width aft deck came with a wet bar and wing doors, and the oversize flybridge has the helm forward and lounge seating aft. Twin 135hp Lehman diesels were standard (8 knots cruise/10 knots top). Optional 300hp Cummins diesels cruise at 1415 knots.
