|Superbly built and maintained motorsailer fitted with twin Gardner diesels and a 3rd Gardner for the generator. Built for the Director of Gardner in 1972 and fitted with the best of everything. Well known up and down Australia's east coast, New Zealand and the Pacific, this magnificent vessel is now in AMSA commercial 2B survey for 8 + 2 up to 200nm offshore and 1E survey for sheltered waters for 30+ 2. This provides a fabulous lifestyle for a new owner to earn a living at their destination of choice or simply enjoy the vessel for what it is - a very well maintained cruising boat that gets people talking wherever she goes.
