45 ft 11 inch x 13 ft 9 beam a 4 ft 6 inch draft. [ good numbers] Shallow draft yet ocean going due to high ballast ratio
Ocean crossing motor sailer. [ long range]
Big fuel and water plus water maker.
Easy access from the Starboard helm station and on to the dock for single handers to berth the boat on their own. [ that is rare feature in todays designs]
Good motor sailers are becoming harder to find, and this one is a ripper.
There is enough sail area in the rig to motor sail and save on fuel, or there is enough area there to sail the boat as a get home feature.
I have had the pleasure of travelling in company with Cool Change and it is a genuine 8 knot vessel. And it does it a 8 litres per hour.
Reliable/ powerful and popular 6.8 litre John Deere [professionally maintained]
Full walk around and shade
High ballast ratio with encapsulated lead ballast. [ A true offshore self righting vessel]
Boarding gates port and starboard
Good size rear cockpit
Spotlessly clean engine room with good access to all systems
Custom electric stainless davits for easy tender handling.
Epoxy construction, very heavily glassed hull for offshore work [ no blisters]
Stabilised with flopper stoppers for comfort at rest.
Professionally fitted in New Guinea Rose wood
Quality soft furnishing and carpets through out
One just has to step aboard to feel the level of thought and effort in creating this robust yet comfortable and capable vessel.
