SIMPLY SUPERB is the only way to describe this beautifully presented cruising ketch.
Professionally built and fitted out with many recent upgrades, this vessel is a real credit to the current owners of the last 25 years.
There is a real WOW FACTOR, as you step aboard the brass window trims are a stand out, the cockpit features beautifully varnished timber trims, and a great feel as you move around the spacious decks.
When going below one is immediately drawn to the bright, open and spacious interior with the use of QUALITY TASMANIAN TIMBERS THROUGHOUT. A real balance is achieved between a traditional timber fitout and a modern bright interior. Again a wow factor!!
Accommodation includes a large double ( or 2 singles) vee berth in the for'ard cabin, enclosed bathroom just aft, then two settee berths in the saloon plus a large quarter berth, providing 5 comfortable berths.
The dinette will sit up to eight comfortably with the superb timber folding table again a real feature
The galley space is excellent with 4 burner stove with oven and grill, twin stainless steel sinks, good capacity fridge plus plenty of bench space and storage.
The nav station is opposite with good size chart table and storage, again using beautiful Tassie timbers.
A 47hp fresh water cooled diesel engine is fitted and has only done approx 480 hours and provides an easy cruising speed of 5 to 6 knots
The list of gear is impressive, good electrical systems with 240V shorepower fitted, solar panels, and battery management system, a very complete range of electronics, as new diesel heater, a very complete sail wardrobe with all sails in good condition, good winches, covers, excellent safeties, the list just goes on.
On deck the boat is well set-up for being easily handled by one or two people
This is one of the most impressive listings we have seen for some time in terms of offering a superb vessel in excellent condition, beautifully fitted out, many recent upgrades and an extensive inventory list.
The 6 feet plus headroom suggests a great liveaboard option, cruise locally or go offshore, the vessel allows for all of these options.
It is literally a step aboard and enjoy, with the listed price representing very good value.
