DESCRIPTION: Centre Cockpit Cutter Ketch. 

The original owners have now completed their extended cruising lifestyle and land based adventures now await them. The custom yacht was built in Canada where it cruised extensively in and around the NW Pacific before setting sail to the South Pacific and over the horizon to foreign lands. The owners have now committed to sell their spacious, well equipped yacht complete with all the extras for comfort and self reliance. Priced to sell and easily handled by a couple. Meander the Australian Coast, the Pacific Islands or beyond. The world is your cruising ground with this fine yacht. This yacht has been maintained by the original owners and is now waiting for her new owners to step aboard. If you are looking for strength of build and quality workmanship you need go no further, as she has been built with these standards in mind by a very experienced yacht builder.
With her centre cockpit, this ketch rigged yacht is more than suited for offshore cruising. No expense was spared to make the yacht a strong and safe vessel. An extra layer of mat and roving was laid up as per owner's request in the solid fibreglass hull. Through bolted bulk heads, double glassed, horizontal stringers were just some of the additional strengthening. She was built in split moulds and then the two halves glassed together to form a 3-6" fibreglass join from stem to stern. The deck was glassed to the hull in overlapping layers to form a solid longitudinal beam at deck level. Taxes paid in Australia and fully imported into the domestic market.

HULL: Fibreglass/GRP Epoxy bottom coat (2014)

DECK: Fibreglass with balsa core.

ENGINE/ENGINE ROOM: Yacht is pushed along in all conditions at a good turn of speed by the big F5L912 Deutz, 88 hp air cooled diesel engine. Note no heat ex-changer problems!!!!!!
Hot air from engine room can be ducted out through the transom or it is also possible to reverse this airflow and blow the hot air back into the yacht for heating and drying the yacht in the cooler and damper climate's. This is not exhaust waste but only warm air that comes off the engine when operating.

ACCOMMODATION: On entering the main saloon, down the companionway from the centre cockpit, you notice the real volume of this yacht. Teak and maple cabin sole and white lining above sets the trend for the remainder of the boat. Initially and to port you have the forward facing nav station with all electronics at hand. Opposite here is the galley, more fully described below. Forward of the galley there is a saloon table that can be either stored up and out of the way, or folded down to provide more than enough room for the entertainers amongst us. The owners prefer to sail longer passages withe this in the up position and then return to the lowered position once they set the pick. There are three move-able seats here but plenty of room for more when required. Opposite here you have the saloon lounge seating with storage behind. This doubles as another double berth when the need arises via a nifty addition that is stored here. Forward from the large saloon area you find the guests Stateroom. This section of the yacht can be closed off for privacy and guests can transit from the berth through to the forward head without entering the saloon area. The forward stateroom features a double pullman style berth to starboard with lee cloths and bunting board for sea, and body form foam mattress (2009). There is a good size settee to port and a desk under the roller timber shutter, forward of the settee. Forward through an opening door is the internal access to the large sail locker. Forward again to the anchor locker. Returning back through the saloon you access the rear owners stateroom through the port-side companionway. Plenty of room going through here even in rough conditions. The large aft cabin stateroom has a walk-around double berth. The ensuite is forward and to starboard.
