|"Snow Goose V" represents a great opportunity to purchase a well advanced build in progress at a very attractive price. She is a 52' centre-cockpit ketch. Launched in 2007,"Snow Goose V" is finished to the stage where you could move aboard and live in comfort immediately and you could cruise around the coast under motor. The standard of workmanship and the quality of equipment (including a bow thruster) is outstanding. There is no rig but quality chain plates and mast steps are in place.
This ferro hull is beautifully fair and the bottom is epoxied. Contrary to the many myths a correctly built ferro hull will stand up to the rigors of the sea as well as any medium and yes, you can insure ferro boats. This vessel was built to survey standard. Supporting documentation is available.
Australian registered vessel no. 858408
Recent insurance survey available.
