Trojan 13 Meter - shipping height

Post by kc-excursion »

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have a shipping height of the 13 Meter express cruiser. Unfortunately when I moved it in 2014 I didn't get an actual height. Does anyone have a picture of the factory shipping cradle?

Here are the specs from the brochure. I've attached a picture on the trailer.

From the spec page:
16'3" beam
43' LOA (with swim platform and bow pulpit close to 48')
13'4" on the cradle (we do not have a cradle)
Dry weight 24,000 lbs. I seem to recall about 28,000 lbs (it has twin 6-71s) from the 2014 move.Image



Thanks

Bob. said the cradle was about 8" off the hard. Remember the height will vary on the trailer used. 13'4" was the height in the cradle.
