Hull number 1 of 5 built and launched as the PC44 (Pacific Cruiser). This stiff, solid and exceptionally sea worthy and strong craft has been FULLY refitted over the last 8 months and is ready to take you anywhere your heart desires. Mystic Trader was built for the Sydney Boat show she was built over spec (IMHO) by the legendary bullet proof cat builders Beach Marine.
Mystic was hauled and spent 8 months on the hard for a major refit January to July 2022.
She was taken back to Gelcoat below the waterline by soda blasting, no osmosis was found (as she was built with vinylester resin to the hulls) so was given 3 coats of epoxy barrier coat, 2 coats of Jotun vinyguard and 3 coats of Micron International antifoul, new anodes and prop speed to both props in June 2022.(Photos available)

This vessel has had over $180K spent in the last 8 months to get her totally off grid ready and able to tackle most any ocean or condition that is thrown at her. She has strength and quality backing her as she is one of the original hand built over spec vessels that was a breakthrough in her day. No fear of rot as there is no ply anywhere in her hull or decks, she is solid glass with quad and bi axial layups under the water line, stronger than any modern day cat and cannot be compared to boats built of ply and glass that are called "composite"...... Composite is glass and foam core... Don't be misled and do your research. She has been refitted as the control and tyranny of the last 2 years pushed me to the edge, but that's my personal opinion and I wanted a totally off grid capable safe, reliable and strong catamaran. As a retired boatbuilder of over 45 years experience and a retired member of SNAME (Society of Marine Engineers and Naval Architects) I believe I have to knowledge and experience to put most "surveyors" to shame. A stronger and more resilient cat I challenge you to find. She has cruised the East coast of Australia a few times but spent most of her life as a "trophy" vessel and has had minimal use over the years, I am the 3rd owner, the original owner keeping her for 20 years, the previous owner for 12 with only one trip to the Whitsundays and back in those years. Apparently she was used mainly with motors (when used) and the previous owner replaced the dated engines with the upgraded brand new Yanmars she now has. Oil and filter changes ever 100 hours.
List of spares and inventory too numerous to mention here.
6 months walk on Marina fees included with sale in Newport Qld if transferable
Please note the attached pdf write up is from the original test by yachting magazine and Mystic has been seriously upgraded since then, but she still retains her original name.
Inspection and survey welcomed as she is bullet proof.
Im approaching 70 years old, have more than 65000 nm under my keels, thought I was bullet proof but have sadly realised she is possibly going to be more than I can manage short handed if push comes to shove so my loss is your gain. (At least it kept me sane for 7 days a week and almost a year during lockdowns and refitting)
