to begin planning for their retirement, the owners of the Ramaela started their
worldwide search for a true passage making yacht several years ago. Retirement
for them was a live aboard yacht that could travel comfortably anywhere in the
world. Finding that trawler was closer and easier than they imagined.
Hiring Naval Architect Robert (Bob) Johnston and employing the services of Custom
Steel Boats, Inc., their plans turned into reality and the conception of Ramaela
was born. As with any project that requires true craftsmanship, much planning
and precise workmanship went into the development of Ramaela, resulting in a
harmony of all of the elements that it safe, sturdy, comfortable, beautiful,
and capable of crossing any oceans with fuel to spare.
Built in 2002 by Custom Steel Boats, the 65’ “Ramaela” has logged over 24,000 nautical miles including voyages to South America, Canada, through the Panama Canal to Costa Rica, and Alaska, but she still maintains her hailing port as Merritt, North Carolina.
The owners have found with these long voyages that they require additional crew. Subsequently, they have decided to place the 65' on the market and construct a new 85’ “Ramaela” with ample crew quarters on board.

Much thought and attention to detail went into the interior design. The yacht

counter, and a comfortable eating area for eight. The lower level of the ship
contains three staterooms, three complete heads, a fully equipped utility room,
and ample storage. The master stateroom has a king sized bed with seating area,
and master head with a whirlpool tub. The forward queen VIP contains a private
ensuite head. The third stateroom is a complete office with a double berth including
an extra fold out single bed.
The vessel is rugged with 3/8” steel plates on the sides, double bottom,
