This Crowther deguello is a hybrid like no other and will be the envy of anyone who sails along side or comes aboard.
She has spent the majority of her life Bluewater cruising and has proved herself in all conditions, never chartered and only 2 previous owners. She has just been tastefully modernised with nearly all components and systems replaced with new earlier in 2022. We wanted the boat reliable and safe for a young family and a huge amount of jtime and effort has gone into bringing this boat boat back to better than new condition.

This is a very unique custom built performance cat capable of upwards of 20knots, yet has the space and liveability of a production boat and will cruise comfortably on autopilot at 14 knots all day in favourable conditions. Being performance orientated she has been set up with everything you need but nothing you don't. The saloon and Galley up is huge with more storage than most, but the hulls are built for speed, making them very narrow. The two forward queens are build up and across the boat within the bridge deck but are surprisingly spacious. On the port owners side the en-suite is aft, and has an electric jabsco head(22). Starboard the manual jabsco head(22) is midships with access from both cabins. There are 2 starboard hull access points, for and aft of the nav table. The aft double can be set up as a Queen or 2 kids singles as we have done, or alternatively as a tool/toy storage cabin if you don't require the bed space.
Built in a professional boat yard in Fremantle using vacuumed glass over foam technology still used in performance boat construction today. The boat is light and very strong. Even the interior furniture and kitchen is foam sand-which construction. She has the proven Crowther 150 hulls with the modern lines and interior moulding of the 223, but on a wider 7.5 m base allowing for the massive interior space in the saloon.
A large navigation desk houses the boats new electronics package, and you will have all the information you need at your fingertips. New B&G Zeus 12, Radar, Triton displays, icom command mic dual station vhf, icom 5w handheld portable vhf in cradle, Victron battery monitor, fuel and water gauges, GME Bluetooth stereo and speakers, iridium go satellite connection and fast charge dc outlets all new 2022. New Solar regs, B&G AIS, DC charger and a 70 litre dual zone Dometic fridge/freezer fit neatly below the desk.
Lithium batteries, 3kva inverter, DC-DC chargers and plenty of storage is beneath the leather lounge which also provides comfortable seating for 6-8. The chefs kitchen with double stainless steel sink, filtered water tap, economical dishwasher, stand up built in Iceer stand up fridge with chest chiller and the bench space and practicality of a house, but with almost 360 degree ocean views.

Her brand new(under 100 hr 2022) Yanmar 3ym30 engines will push you along at 6-7 knots on one engine in good conditions, or up to 10 if you need to with both engines. Feathering stainless steel Australian made Auto Stream props do the hard work.
The hulls were painted with international awl grip in 2020 and are in great condition, the bottom was professionally stripped right back, primed and anti fouled with international paint 2022. Topsides and decks have been sanded back, primed with interprotect and international perfection top coat. Deck paint also new this year.
New Main, stack pack, code zero and spinnaker compliment the 2016 furling jib, and allow for great performance in all conditions. Most of the running rigging has also been replaced using top quality spectra.
Jib, main, spinnaker, furler and dagger boards all controlled from in the cockpit with a new Power Wincher winch handle so the whole family can join in. External access to engines and walk through to the steps with a flat floor throughout the cockpit. A walk through transom to the sports-decks not only a great safe place to store the dinghy but also a fantastic place to fish or play when at anchor. New custom "positive decks" foam decking makes for a great feeling underfoot and looks fantastic.
Large cockpit with raised double helm seat offering great visibility to all 4 corners and direct contact with the cockpit and the saloon and kitchen, with an outdoor table with seating for a family of 6. A large hardtop is home for most of the solar array and plenty of fishing rod storage on the underside. Shade awnings protect both sides and the rear, with clears to protect the helm. Larger matching shades for the entire front of the boat will keep you cool in the most brutal sun. Lots of storage lockers throughout the cockpit allow space for all your bits and pieces and a huge gear locker under the seat will fit at least 6 kids at once if you need some peace and quiet.
Huge anchor lockers and forward hatches offer all the external storage you will need, as well as being home for the spectra water maker and sail and rope locker.
Most lights have been converted to LED which includes blue and red courtesy lights throughout the cockpit and saloon, and 4 super bright underwater lights.

The 3.4m Searano aluminium flat floor inflatable RIB is the perfect fit and lifts up on Davits from the targa bar. It then sits on the rear sports deck for stability and is safe from big waves and wind. It's powered by a 20hp Mercury 4 stroke outboard which has electric start and trim and tilt, yet is the same weight as the equivalent 2 stroke outboard. This is big enough to pull up a 100kg wakeboarder and the perfect size for towing kids around. It will plane with a family of 6 and we have found it to be the perfect match for Backchat. The battery, anchor, pump and grab bag are housed in the front dinghy locker.

Backchat was the perfect choice for our family sabbatical sailing adventure which is now coming to an end. She is currently in Northwest WA and heading back to Bussleton or Perth and will be ready for her new owner by the end of July. She will be "turn key" and ready to sail anywhere in the world. She is licenced in West Australia and Australian registered.
