Tough as Nails. Transition, a 2000 Provincial 42 is setup as a high comfort trawler. With the Provincial pedigree she can do anything and with a comfy interior, she will do anything in comfort.
Transition will get you there and back. No more waiting for the proper weather window. Go when you need to in a Provincial.
Transition is a New England Lobster or Down East style trawler. The hull and running gear are built for heavy industrial North Sea fishing and is “overbuilt” for traditional cruising demands. Provincial has been building commercial vessels since 1974 primarily as workboats and has made a limited number of customized trawlers. Transition has had several interior upgrades to transform her into a truly comfortable, beautiful and capable cruising vessel.
Transition is a highly reliable vessel with lots of spare parts, filters, belts, alternator, Bow thruster motor, port lights etc. We have been cruising remote Bahamian out-islands and Florida Keys fishing and diving in out-of-the-way anchorages. The prop is fully protected with a SS skeg and supported SS rudder.
Transition has several sister ships on the National Geographic television show - Wicked Tuna , Little Shell is a Provincial 42, and it catches lot of big tuna. Pin Wheel is a 2018 Provincial 45.
