UPDATE: Boat will be hauled out and available for viewing on the hardstand at Marks Point Marina, Lake Macquarie, on Thursday 8 December 2022 (one day only). In water viewing can be arranged at any mutually convenient time before that by contacting owner.

Ocean capable auxiliary sailing vessel. Many Mahes have circumnavigated the world. This boat sails and motors like a dream (11 knots and 9 knots respectively in optimal conditions).
Small enough to be single handed manually without electrical / hydraulic assist devices (owner voyaged single-handed in multiple hops from Whitsunday Islands to Brisbane), yet big enough for commodious extended living aboard, a veritable floating apartment.
Price: Offers above AU$380K

Production yacht made in France and delivered by cargo ship brand new to Brisbane in 2012. Non-production yachts (eg strip planked, glassed over hulls) are heavier and weaker and prone to osmosis compared with yachts professionally built by Fontaine Pajot, the most experienced manufacturer of GRP catamarans in the world.
Only one owner, this boat may be 10 years old but the hulls are solid with dry bilges. Manufacture by vacuum bagged resin injection ensured zero osmosis. It has been rejuvenated in all the important ways and proven in long distance passages. When 7 years old there was a problem with electrolysis between the steel rudder posts and aluminium sheathing tubes causing steering seizure. This was fixed by replacing the aluminium with fibreglass tubes, hence this will never happen again.
The boat can be inspected now but contract will preferably not be finalised till mid/late December 2022 due to ongoing use and improvements (antifouling etc).
