|Launched in 1997, Kakadu is an Ulf Rogeburg designed 45 Steel Cutter Rigged Sloop designed for world cruising and now listed for sale exclusively with the team at YOTI.
Kakadu represents a go anywhere vessel, incredibly well spec'd, very well maintained and what sets her apart from other blue water options is her ease of operation and comfort above and below decks. Her hull was sandblasted in 2012, re-faired and new epoxy coatings applied. The topsides and deck were re-painted in 2014. Standing rigging replaced 2014 while the mast was also re-painted and re-furbished. The steering system is the enviable Whitlock Cobra rack and pinion direct drive - no wires. Mainsail, Genoa, Spinnaker - all updated new in 2011. There is a separate trysail track fitted to the mast. Water maker, generator, ducted diesel heating, solar panels, wind generator, dinghy with two outboards, folding propeller and an extensive safety package - all on board. Tankage is certainly fit for purpose with 1000L water and 1200L diesel.
Accommodation down below is beautifully finished in Tasmanian Ash and was re-varnished in 2011. A navigation station to starboard would shame many larger vessels. A generous galley sits to port. The large saloon features a stunning hi gloss table with folding leaves. The generous space forward offers a dedicated work room with vice, the enclosed head and shower with electric head and holding tank and the large V berth which currently is utilised for storage. Two large double cabins are located aft.
Rarely do we see a vessel of this calibre so well presented and professionally updated where it matters most. Available for inspection on Sydney Harbour, contact YOTI for further details.
