Superbly built and fitted with real attention to detail and utilisation of the best systems available culminating in one of the best appointed, laid out and finished serious bluewater cruising vessels we have had the pleasure to offer for sale.
Designed by Bruce Roberts-Goodson, professionally built in the US by the original owner as a vessel suitable for polar weather ( NW Passage!!) with emphasis on safety, structural endurance in a comfortable well appointed layout.
Other construction features include the hull built of 1/4" steel below the waterline and 3/16" above, the deck with 1/8" plate, the laid 5/8" teak being laid over 5/8" marine ply with a concealed fix onto the steel deck so simply cannot leak, the pilothouse construction 1/8" plate over 2" X 3/16" framing, immensely strong keel construction, skeg hung protected rudder, renewed standing rigging, several sail upgrades, excellent electrical systems, the list goes on and on.
Features abound, watertight collision compartments, 2 end to end in the bow, 1 in the stern, a TRUE PILOTHOUSE with great helm station,
dinette area with provision for bunk while underway, gas heater plus a wet bar when entertaining.
From the pilothouse its a few steps for'ard down to the very spacious saloon, large galley with all the necessary appointments including large capacity refrigeration, then a twin cabin plus another double cabin for'ard with a vee berth and two singles. A full bathroom with separate shower bay services this area. Storage abounds too.
The master cabin has a queen bed, settee, and literally stacks of storage plus dual access ensuite (from pilothouse and master cabin).
The layout and use of the space is a credit to the designer, and quality of finish a credit to the builder.
On deck the laid teak is in excellent condition to the point you wouldn't think you were on a steel boat, the cockpit while not over-size, is well appointed for relaxing at anchor or running the boat.
Excellent deck space provides good access all round the boat with all gear set-up for ease of handling when short handed.
The engine is 140hp Volvo diesel with great access to the engine room which presents like new.
The electrical systems are designed to ensure the boat is entirely self sufficient when at sea for extended periods and good electronics as expected are also fitted
The inventory is too extensive to cover here, please look over the detail as below.
This wonderful boat provides many opportunities, liveaboard, world cruiser or a very comfortable family vessel.
