This one owner vessel has been a pleasure to review and list for sale here in Western Australia. Shipped across from Guernsey in 2002, Carolina Moon has since sat pretty much idle, engines only just ticking over to 430 hours. Sure, there's a bit to do for a handyman, nothing too major, mostly superficial stuff, but overall she is a remarkable craft.

Built in the Isle of Guernsey, she is a pilot boat hull - designed to deliver her crew safely in any weather. I'd like to see a hull core sample, I'm assuming she is pretty thick!

Setting her apart from her commercial cousins, Carolina Moon has been fitted with satin teak cabinetry, microwaves, airconditioning, two heads and three cabins, making her perfect for a family.... Or a selfish couple.

Obvious features include the blue coloured gelcoat hull with a distinctive teak rub rail running along the topsides - a nice touch. Safety was also a big consideration on the Atlantis, wide bulwarks provide great access to the bow while high stainless rails stop you failing overboard. Ten substantial cleats will ensure she never comes adrift. Nothing Micky Mouse about her, she is heavily built.

Engineering, both electrical and mechanical to me appear to be installed by craftsmen that give a damn.

I included an image of the hull out of the water so you can see the size of the keel, same depth as the props so they have a bit of protection. Three times the size of most recreational boats. The keel will also dramatically reduce the swing while at anchor.

Ventilation is plentiful. While providing access to the deck, the skippers coach door plus sliding saloon windows enable the breeze to flow through when required. Interesting to also note she has front windscreen demisters, something the likes of Princess add as an option for vessels being delivered to colder climates.

The owner boasts how the leather trim was fabricated by the same fella that supplied Sunseeker and Princess in the UK. Having myself reclined in the voluptuous lounge on Carolina Moon, I would not be at all surprised! In fact this Atlantis 47 was once presented at a boat show in Southampton, England.

If you're into fishing, rod holders and game poles were installed in the hope of spending some time trolling for pelagics but, at only 275 hours, I guess the fish have been pretty safe so far.

I have given most systems onboard a run. There are some items which of course will still require some tweaking and servicing but overall, value for money, she is a lot of boat with nothing that I could see stopping you from turning the key and heading out tomorrow.
