Many West Australian locals would recognise this enormous craft cruising around Rottnest or even at the Abrolhos Islands in years gone by. The Fadara 55 is one of a kind. The aft cabin layout is slowly becoming more and more popular here in WA, yes we are slow to catch on! When you step aboard you will understand why. Boasting 5 large cabins and a rear entertaining deck large enough for a game of French Cricket... Or to host a party with two dozen guests, it's difficult to find a comparable vessel anywhere.

The 'Post Mistress' is a floating apartment. Beyond a weekend, most boats feel small and are often uncomfortable, but not the Fadara. Spend a weekend or a month onboard without a problem. The Tardis may be a better name for her.

The full beam master stateroom is something you would normally find on later model luxury boats. This is complimented by another two double berth cabins and two with large singles. There will be no quieing for the bathroom either as she is fitted with three.

Amidship is a large lounge / dining area but you will find most of your time will be spent out under cover on the rear deck. Stairs as opposed to the standard ladder provide access to the swimboard. Similarly another set of stairs forward enable you to walk up to the flybridge without spilling your drink.

Two steering stations give you a choice to be out in the open or in the warmth of the saloon. The lower helm featuring a side access door in case the skipper needs to shoot forward to grab a line. The door also enables fantastic airflow. The current owner installed a bow thruster as an additional aid to manoeuvring.

The last three owners each have contributed to upgrades and maintenance. I speak with some experience as she was once owned by my brother who spared no expense in her maintenance and enjoyed numerous Abrolhos adventures onboard.

While there will always be money to spend on any boat from the day you pick it up, many of larger cost items on the Post Mistress have already been sorted.

Some of the upgrades and refurbishments include:
* Removal and resealing of all saloon windows
* Installations of a desalination system
* New cockpit clears and breezeway screens
* Engine heat exchangers removed and flushed in 2015
* Genset was removed and a stainless steel tray manufactured so it doesn't rust.... As typically they do!
* Mattresses all replaced
* New carpets
* New leather lounge
* New Fusion stereo system
* New TV
* Tender davit system installed
* New Sidepower Bow Thruster
* Hull stripped and reglassed to eradicate any osmosis
* Marinedeck cork decking to flybridge and cockpit floors
The list goes on and many of the receipts are catalogued and available for viewing.
