|Completely refurbished Wlilliams & Hodge flybridge cruiser.
Whole new superstructure and fully repainted in Awligrip by master shipwrights in Putney (Halvorsen shed).
The restauration includes ompletely refurbished decks, which were re-built, re-glassed and painted in durable white two-pack polyurethane with light grey non-skid.
Cabin tops were restored and replanked as well as sheathed with fibreglass.
Reinforced glass and stainless steel portholes were installed. New windows were also put in with new timber frames.
'Sofala's' interior was fully refurbished, with new timber cabinetry throughout for an open and more modern feel.
Two large settees on either side of the fully protected cockpit have been upolstered in beautiful white leather and would make very comfortable beds for guests. Two other full size settees are in the main cabin, with one cane chair that can be removed if needed.
The downstairs steering stations is situated to port. Hearoom is 6'4" throughout.
A well equipped galley is situated down a few steps to starboard. The galley was also part of the refit. A double stainless steel sink with pressurized hot and cold water, recessed two-burners stove, front-opening fridge/freezer and a microwave were all added in 2011 and present in perfect condition. There is ample storage for food and cooking equipment.
The head and shower area is extremely large for a boat this size. It includes electric marine toilet with a hidden holding tank, a lovely vanity and stainless steel sink, and a pressurized hot and cold shower with electric sump pump.
'Sofala's' flybridge is completely new, with high gloss polyurethane paint finished to perfection. The visibility from the flybridge is second to none. A Bimini protects from the sun and the skipper will be able to enjoy company with the two large settees for guest and a large aft deck to entertain.
The forward deck is easily accessed via the side decks or from the flybridge (see video on our website www. Nautilusyachtmanagement. Com)
'Sofala' was bought by a passionate owner who spent considerable time and funds restoring this beautiful 1950's timber yacht to a vessel turning heads wherever she goes. Extremely comfortable, easy to maneuver with her twin-screws, equipped for extended stays or live-aboard with a master cabin which would make many others envious, shore power, state of the art stereo and flat screen TV and of course plenty of room to entertain your friends and family, it would be hard to find a more charming, well equipped and well presented boat. Her twin BMC Newage Commodore engines are fuel efficient and reliable. They have been regularly serviced and kept in perfect condition.
A 2013 survey (full out of water survey) is available for your information and will be valid until 20th of November 2014 for insurance purposes, which could save you around $1200 on purchase costs.
