Tasmanian boat builder Allan Barnett created the High Seas range of trawler-style cruisers, which are actually based on real trawlers. After a life of motoring over 200nm south of Tasmania into sometimes shocking conditions that would have most of us reading the life raft instructions, Barnett is suitably qualified to built a boat for the true adventurer. The High Seas 63 has a steel hull with aluminium superstructure, built to USL 2B survey and various international standards. There is no doubt that she is 'Tonka tough' and her hull has twin bilge keels to protect the props and offer roll dampening.
The windows are all fixed, the Pilothouse windows being 12mm armour plate and the remainder 10mm armourplate tinted safety glass. The reverse sheer windscreens are carefully engineered so that the glass sits on the outside with the edges polished and exposed. External paint systems are "Awlgrip system " The hull is framed, welded, sandblasted, zinc coated, filled and faired to 6mm thickness in some sections and then sprayed, inside and out. Custom-made doors, hatches, portholes, bollards and railings are to the highest possible standard with stainless steel gunwale capping which replaces the usual varnished teak. Easy maintenance, tough and highly decorative.

Decks Material
Twin Cummins QSB 300 hp. Type: Six-cylinder 5.9 litre electronic turbo-diesel Displacement: 5.9lt Rated HP: 300 Max. RPM: 2600 Gearbox: Twin Disc MG 5065 A The engine management controls are well spaced to avoid confusion. Controls for the 7kVa or 22kVa Onans, triple synchronised wipers, inverter chargers, tank levels. The Hydraulic Sidepower bow thruster is powered by a PTO on the 22KVa Onan genet. The Cummins/Onan package also means parts and service from one reliable and reputable global network. The engine room is well finished and engineered with twin Cummins QSB 300hp diesels and well supported by the ancillary equipment, such as the impressive bilge pumping systems, fire suppression equipment, fuel filtration and pumping systems. The fuel tanks are mounted in the double-skin bottom and total 10,000lt, giving an effective range of 2000nm at 7kts. Water tanks hold 1000 litres and are augmented by a 280 lt/h watermaker. Blackwater holding tanks are a big volume 600lt. The battery systems are simplistic and an Outback 3000W inverter with 85amp charger is fitted. A 22kVa and a 7kVa Onan are fitted with sound shields and generate the power requirements of the galley fridge, wheelhouse domestic chest freezer, three wine fridges and icemaker. Underway, "MV Iron Prince" is smooth and quiet, the speed rising to 9kts with ease, while using a modest 45lt/h. At 8 kts fuel burn is 34lt/h. At 68 tonnes displacement, plus fuel and water, she is stable and not rocked by the wash from passing cruisers. The hull is equipped with passive stabilisers welded to the chines, which are most effective in roll control at cruising speed, and the twin keels will keep her upright should you decide to beach the vessel.

Entering the Saloon from the cokpit, large doors open to the spacious and comfortable saloon, which features large picture windows and excellent visibility. To port is the dinette and ahead of that is the galley with Caesar-stone bench tops, Smev gas three-burner hobs, Miele oven, Blanco microwave, and Fisher & Paykel fridge and dishwasher. A pullout pantry and various other cupboards offer good general galley storage. The dinette has a large oak and cherrywood table while the rest of the interior fitout is in ash and Tasmanian myrtle, which has a reddish hue. Leather seats lift out to expose more storage opportunities.
Opposite to starboard is the entertainment and bar section, with a large-screen TV which rises out of the cabinet ready to play the latest Blu-ray DVD's through a Yamaha sound system. The bar has two wine-rack fridges and an icemaker.
Forward and to starboard is the main hatch to the engine room. It allows easy and safe access in all weather and is complemented by the secondary access through the lazarette, which also houses a washer/dryer.
Forward and up to the wheelhouse, with doors either side, is a full-width dash simplistically laid out yet comprehensively equipped, the anti-glare reverse sheer windscreens framing the view, and a large sofa and table with two leather helm chairs.
Down a wide companionway to a spacious lower foyer that opens to the guest accommodations. Forward is a queen-sized island bed, his and hers lockers, air-conditioning controls and a TV/DVD/music system. Aft to port is a bathroom, which has shower and basin facilities while opposite is a separate head with Tecma toilet, basin and mirror.
Aft and to port is a guest cabin with upper and lower bunks transversely installed. From the foyer aft, two sliding doors open to the master suite and its centerline queen bed. If one was alone on board or as a couple, these doors could remain open and this effectively doubles the space of the master suite giving a feeling of great comfort. An en suite head and shower is most comfortable and duplicates the finishes from the other bathrooms. A very large storage/linen cupboard is lined in frontrunner material and will keep a vast quantity of towels, sheets and clothing dry and fresh during a long cruise. The master cabin also has another entertainment selection of TV/DVD and music systems, and there are bedside tables and lockers.
The cabinetry throughout the boat is Tasmanian myrtle, satin finished, while the interior of all the cupboards and drawers are white Laminex.
From the wheelhouse, a companionway leads up to the flybridge and boat deck, which houses the tender and an Opacmare 500kg davit. The forward flybridge area is really a fair-weather viewing platform, with the throttle, joystick, thruster and a Raymarine repeater installed. A long bench seat is located forward of another row of cupboards, creating an island bench incorporating another glass-fronted wine fridge.
