Joe Adams is renowned for creating capable and comfortable cruising yachts which also boast excellent sailing ability and performance. The Adams 45 is a great example of his work and was designed as a serious Bluewater Cruiser with an impressive turn of speed. The hull was professionally built to a high standard in Melbourne, and the vessel was then completed over a number of years. The basic interior fitout was completed in 1998 when the vessel was launched, and it was then enjoyed by a family living the dream and sailing over 30,000nms through the Pacific and Indian Oceans over 12 years, finishing in Hobart. The vessel then enjoyed an extensive refit prior to the current owners purchasing the vessel in 2021 including SANDBLAST AND REPAINT OF THE HULL BELOW THE WATER LINE, REPAINT OF THE DECKS, NEW ELECTRICAL SWITCH PANEL AND LED LIGHTING THROUGH OUT, NEW AUTOPILOT AND RAM ADDED, NEW VHF RADIO, NEW ANCHOR WINCH, and NEW DECK LIGHTING. The current owners have further improved the vessel including NEW LIFE LINES, NEW STEERING CABLES, and REPAINT OF THE BILGES, and FEB 2023 ENGINE SERVICE AND ANTIFOUL. With all the hard work done, this vessel now presents an excellent opportunity to enjoy a vessel of this size and capability. Whether you want to enjoy its extensive accommodation as a family cruiser, sail around Australia, or even around the world, this is a vessel that can do it all with ease!
Stepping inside, the interior boasts a tasteful mix of traditional timber trims and clean white surfaces. With plenty of natural light, it has a warm and welcoming ambience. To port is the generous dinette with seating for 8 in comfort on the comfortable settees. The galley is well positioned opposite and features a two burner gas stove with oven, double bowl stainless steel sink with pressurised water, and stunning timber bench tops. There is also plenty of storage for extended passages. The accommodation makes the vessel ideal for cruising with friends and family. Forward is a generous double v-berth with lounge to starboard which can also be utilised as a single berth. Aft are two private double cabins. The package is complete with generous private bathroom with electric toilet and shower.
On deck, the cockpit is a great space to relax and take in the views. The vessel is easily managed short handed with the mainsail in a boom back with lazy jacks, furling genoa, and self tacking staysail with wish-bone boom. There is easy access around the wide side decks, and quality cruising features such as the electric anchor winch, self tailing winches through out, and even a wind vane steering system.
This vessel is powered by a well maintained and reliable Perkins 78HP Diesel Engine. This provides easy cruising at 6 knots using only 4LPH. There is excellent access for hassle free servicing with the engine located beneath the central settee in the saloon.
With its impressive sailing history, true Bluewater capability, and recent maintenance, this is a vessel not to miss! For more information please call Jo Breen on 0432031100 or John Radonic on 0459322862.
