Huge Volume Blue Water Cruising Yacht in need of a little bit of work, but equipped with an essential list of cruising items, and priced to sell!

The Bad:

  • Teak Decks are in need of removal or replacement. Decks are not leaking but the Timber has worn out
  • Hull Paint - The Hull has been rolled not sprayed, and although functional she would need a new spray job to bring her back up
  • Rigging...its original, so due for replacement - the forestay was replaced in 2012, and the running rigging is still pretty good
  • Some other Equipment including Genset, Deck Wash and Chart Plotter Screen all need servicing

The Good:

  • Spectra 2000te Water maker
  • Vitus 8KVA Genset
  • Airconditioning in Saloon and Master Cabin
  • Twin Electric 54" Primary Winches
  • 6 Man Life Raft (Out of Date)
  • AIS Receiver and Transponder
  • B&G Ram Auto Pilot 
  • B&G Tridata Wind Instruments
  • 3.1m Hard bottom Inflatable Rib
  • Davit System on Stern for Rib
  • Solar Panels including Charging and Monitor System
  • Maxwell Electric Windlass replaced in 2019
  • Huge 900l water Capacity
  • Full set of Covers
