Well, it's been about 26 years when, in a former life I was last behind the helm of this amazing vessel. It was like meeting a great friend after years of separation and feeling you caught up just yesterday.

'Lauriana II' as she has been named since new, is a genuine Bertram 42 fully imported to Australia with numerous other Bertrams by Alf Barbagallo back in 1978. Yes, her age is no secret but I can say she has faired well for her years aided by a couple of refits, engine replacements and rebuilds along the way. In fact, if I didn't mention her age, you would think she were much younger. She is in pretty good condition sporting new leather upholstery and carpets.

A very proven hull - I can personally vouch for that after three north west coastal trips taking in Broome and Exmouth and about 20,000nm, often trolling for gamefish along the way.

About 17 years ago her engines were upgraded to 6V92 GM's replacing the little 671's. In the last 6 months, after an unfortunate burst enginn hose caused a catastrophe, the port engine was rebuilt. The late GM specialist Peter Markopoulis once said to me 'You know if a GM is in good condition by the way it starts". Turn the ignition key and both engines on Lauriana II fire up within nano seconds and barely breath a puff of smoke.

I liken the two stroke GM's to an old eighties Toyota Landcruiser, both were reliable and relativiely easy to fix without the requirement for a laptop and the right software. GM's are still widely used throughout the world. I have many custmers who prefer them for their simplicity. Anyone can work on them.

The accommodation consists of a forward V-berth which converts to a double and an amidship master stateroom. A lower galley is well decked out with electric appliances and eutectic fridge.

A small tender is now located above the rear deck and launched via a stainless steel davit system.

All systems I believe work including the airconditioners and desalination plant. The genset is fairly new.

I think Lauriana II is priced amazingly well considering the gear onboard and the work that has been carried out over recent years. I wouldn't hesitate in taking my family out to sea on her.
