Not even close. They want to spend "6 months plus, a year at sea", that is not the same usage as a typical owner. That type of cruising on a trawler typically means very long hours and lots of overnight voyages. They also stated they want a Captain to teach them how to operate the vessel on their own. I would say $65-75k for someone that is very experienced, but you should be able to find someone capable for $65k.
