With stunning traditional aesthetics, Huon Pine splined construction, and true Pilothouse design, 'Pattybelle' is a vessel that turns heads where ever she pulls into port. Thompson designed, and built but the renowned Irwin McVille in Northern Tasmania, this impressive vessel has been under the same ownership since 1986! Having cruised extensively around the stunning waters of Tasmania, it has also proven its offshore capability with multiple Bass Strait crossings, and twice ventured to Sydney and back. Featuring a traditional long keel, inside helm station, and simple sailing systems, it is ideal for enjoying comfortable cruising all year round in any climate. This vessel also features AN ONAN 6.5KVA GENSET, 1500L FUEL CAPACITY and 1000L WATER CAPACITY FOR EXTENDED CRUISING, DINGHY DAVITS, A NEW 2023 AUTOPILOT, VHF AND HF RADIOS, HOT WATER, AND NEW 2019 24V BATTERY BANK. This vessel now offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a superbly built and capable vessel of this size. For the first time on the market in 38 years, 'Pattybelle' is a vessel which could turn your dreams into reality!

Stepping inside, the wheelhouse is a great space to relax and enjoy cruising in comfort. Boasting exceptional visibility and superb timber work, this area has a warm and welcoming ambience. To starboard is the helm station. This is fully equipped with NEW 2023 Autopilot, Depth sounders, VHF and HF Radio, and radar. There are sliding doors either side for quick access to the deck when required. Just a couple of easy steps down leads to the saloon. The generous dinette is to starboard and there is seating for up to 8 around the U-shaped settees. The galley is well positioned opposite, and as the feel of a small apartment. It is well appointed with a 220L upright fridge with freezer compartment, 4 burner gas stove with oven, stainless steel sink with H/C pressurised water, and plenty of storage for extended cruising. The accommodation is ideal for cruising with family and friends and features a forward cabin with two single berths, generous aft cabin with 3 single berths, and a single settee berth in the saloon. The interior package is complete with private bathroom with electric toilet, and separate shower bay opposite.

Outside, there is easy access around the wide side decks and plenty of spaces to enjoy the sunshine on a fine day. Forward is an electric anchor winch to control the CQR anchor with 120m. Sailing is simply a breeze with both the headsail and mainsail on furlers for easy use in any conditions. Aft are the dinghy davits, and good access down to the water thanks to the opening guard rails.

This vessel is powered by a 115HP Perkins 6 cylinder diesel engine. This provides easy cruising at 7-8 knots. The engine room really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, and the space makes servicing hassle free. This area also houses the Onan 6.5 kVa genset, proving 240V power on demand.

Whilst this impressive vessel would benefit from some upgrades and work on the interior, it provides an exceptional opportunity for its new custodians to customise it to suit their needs. The generous volume, and excellent layout create plenty of options to really make this vessel your own. With this style of vessel always highly sought after, particularly constructed of Huon Pine, this really is an opportunity not to miss!
