Alexander Marine are pleased to present the graceful 1984 Ditmar & Donaldson 100ft Motor Yacht 'Huntress' to the market as worldwide central agents. Her design was conceived by the famous Australian born and ultimately world-renowned yacht designer Jon Bannenberg.

This exquisite vessel, cherished by only two devoted owners, has been meticulously maintained and upgraded throughout her life. Under the current ownership of 24 years, 'Huntress' has primarily served as a mothership for remote and extended explorations, traversing Australian waters and venturing into the vast Pacific Ocean. Noteworthy expeditions include the untouched landscapes of remote Tasmania, the Kimberley regions, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Tahiti, Tuamotus Archipelago, and the Marquesas Islands. Ready to cross oceans at a moment's notice, she boasts a range of 3500nm at 10 knots.

Crafted by the renowned shipwrights Ditmar & Donaldson in Costa Mesa, California, 'Huntress' exemplifies exceptional craftsmanship and genuine blue water vessel construction. The yacht's Bannenberg design, originating from an era when boats were unique handcrafted masterpieces, bestows a timeless charm often lost in modern models. 'Huntress' is indeed a one-of-a-kind gem.

From the dock, 'Huntress' emanates strength and boldness. Her hand-laid GRP structure, with a lamination thickness that must be seen to be believed, could be mistaken for steel. The elegant lines and flared bow reflect her capability to handle ocean crossings with grace, comfort, and safety. The wide walk-around side decks not only enhance movement but also provide additional shade to the saloon courtesy of the flybridge overhead overhang.

Boarding 'Huntress' is via a gangway onto the side deck or via the swim platform away from the dock. The teak-laid aft deck, with a built-in L-shaped forward-facing lounge and custom timber coffee table, offers a perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. A smaller dining table, extendable for flexibility, sits on the starboard side, complementing the saloon's dining options. Plexiglass wing doors and a removable euro awning add versatility to the aft deck, ensuring comfort in various weather and sun conditions. A Weber BBQ, neatly stored in its compartment, enhances the culinary experience. Teak-laid side decks lead forward to the bow, complete with seating forward of the Portuguese bridge, under which 500 liters of ULP for tenders is concealed.

The saloon, accessed seamlessly from the aft deck through an automatic glass sliding door, showcases the yacht's elegance. Featuring a bar, spacious lounging area, and internal formal dining, the saloon is adorned with meticulously crafted timberwork, offering a grand and luxurious atmosphere. Oversized windows invite natural light, illuminating the interior's gorgeous grain patterns. The ship's bar, located to starboard, is well-equipped for serving guests both indoors and outdoors, while a lounge area to starboard features a luxurious L-shaped lounge around a custom-made hi/lo coffee table. A Samsung 55" TV on the portside ensures entertainment, complemented by a Fusion sound system. Forward on the port side, an interior formal dining table for six is conveniently located near the galley.

A highlight of the saloon is an exquisite model of the HMS Prince 110 Guns, crafted from micro bone fragments by French prisoners during the Napoleonic Wars. Encased in glass and positioned opposite a custom-made backgammon table, this masterpiece exemplifies the yacht's overall elegance.

The galley, portside forward, features granite countertops, ample cabinetry and quality appliances including a Bosch dishwasher, LG Smart Inverter Microwave, Subzero upright fridge/freezer, and a Dacor commercial stovetop and convection oven. A wine fridge is located just forward of the galley. Opposite the galley on the starboard side is the opulent on-deck day head, adorned with marble and Hollywood lighting.

Moving forward from the galley the pilothouse features port and starboard doors for easy access to side decks. The helm chair, elevated settee, and dashboard trimming has been recently refreshed. Navigation electronics include Furuno, Simrad, Icom, and Starlink satellite internet for communications. Docking is assisted by a hydraulic bow thruster, with control stations on both sides of the flybridge for safe handling in close quarters.

Accommodation aboard 'Huntress' is luxurious and comfortable, offering three mid-ships guest staterooms and crew accommodation in the bow. The master stateroom, spanning the entire beam, boasts a king-size island bed, walk-in closet, and two private ensuites with exquisite marble finishes one of which has a spa bath! Two identical midship twin guest staterooms with ensuite bathrooms ensure a comfortable stay for guests. The air-conditioned flybridge provides overflow accommodation for two persons.

Crew quarters, accessed from the starboard side of the pilothouse, comprise three cabins, a shared head, and separate shower. A crew dinette and ship's laundry, equipped with a top-loading Speed Queen washing machine and Whirlpool dryer, are located in the crew area. Additional refrigeration and a dry storage area for chef provisions are also accommodated.

The air-conditioned flybridge, accessed via a staircase from the starboard side of the pilothouse, features a centerline helm station with individual captain and navigator seats. The flybridge offers stunning panoramic views, and the GRP hardtop, supported by a Black Marlin Tower's anodized frame, adds visual perfection. Two tenders, a Gemini 5.4M RIB and a 5.1M Boston Whaler Centre Console, are housed on the boat deck. A commercial Ice Maker and ample storage space make the boat deck versatile for various needs.

'Huntress's' spacious engine room is equipped with 500hp John Deere engines, providing economical cruise speeds of 10 to 11 knots. Naiad Hydraulic Fin Stabilizers ensure comfort underway, and two large generators cater to onboard power requirements. With a fuel capacity of 21,500 liters and a fuel bowser for refueling gamefishing vessels, 'Huntress' is well-prepared for extended cruising. The engine room also houses a workshop, Bauer dive compressor, and a custom overhead dive bottle storage compartment.

Captained and maintained by a full-time crew, 'Huntress' is akin to a small ship, offering elegance, safety, and comfort for all guests. This superyacht, ready to embark on endless adventures, invites you to explore the world. Private inspections are available, and for those unable to travel, a guided video tour can be arranged with one of our yacht consultants.

Located in Gold Coast, Queensland, 'Huntress' awaits her next owner to chart new horizons and create unforgettable memories on the open seas. The world is truly your oyster aboard this extraordinary vessel.
