This will sell, and you will not be able to find another boat of this build and suitability to travel or charter in style.
Just dropped the price again by $15,000, wher can you get a boat like this! It would cost over $400K to build a boat like this today, it is built to travel the world.
INTERIOR PHOTOS just added, very little to finish off.
Katherine Scarlette is built to the world famous George Buehler design, and was built by an English boat builders son in Leithbridge, near Geelong, and launched as a completed hull in 1997-8. She has been built to full offshore survey standards and inspected during all stages of work, she is very close to full survey.
The current owner planned to charter her from Geelong, Queenscliff and Melbourne, there is a total lack of good charter boats of this standard and unique experience she can offer to guests, and she would also be magnificent on Sydney Harbour or some other exotic location. The option of a Pilot House has been proffessionally drafted, and may suit the purpose of a charter operator, but the wide and open deck space also has great merits.
This offers a classic head-turning vessel that will attract customers, and will become a well known addition to any skyline when she operates. Wherever she is people stop and stare admiringly at her imposing presence.

In the process of building the George Buehler designed Gaff Ketch, every effort was made to resource the strongest timbers for the job. The hull framing and keel are massively constructed of Iron Bark, the 2.5" planking below the waterline is Douglas Fir and above the waterline, 2-2.5" of double planking in European Mahogany. The double and triple thickness Marine Ply decking is surrounded by 30cm bulwarks providing great protection from the elements and a safety and seating rail at the same time. The huge decks and raised cabin tops also have the benefit of providing protected sun baking and seating areas for up to 15-20 people.
Recently the tiller steering has been altered to run with a Hydraulic feedback system, featuring a spoke ships wheel and any person can comfortably steer the boat.
Katherine Scarlette will cruise at 7.5 knots all day into sea and up to 8.5/9 knots if required. As far as sailing goes, the Gaff rig is easy to handle in any conditions and while there is the provisions for top rigs above the main and mizzen, she sails and points well, with its 6.7/7' draft and full length keel.
This is the perfect deep sea cruiser and can be handled comfortably by 2 people. She will take you where you dream of going, and you will feel secure in the journey.
