Back in Moreton bay. Life is short and time to move on. Due to health concerns I have reduced the price to $100,000. I am willing to deal so invite offers in that vicinity. 15 metre hitchhiker, just undergone extensive rebuild in vgc. Has been repowered with twin 50 hp yanmar engines 1700 hrs and sd 31 saildrives, all in excellent condition. There are three major berths, all queen size, two in hulls and one on bridgedeck. This boat would suit a family. It has ample stored fresh water, battery power, solar panels, etc, suited for extended cruising. There are two wc with near new macerating toilets and shower areas with full pump out. Forward there are ample nets, very safe and strong with a large storage area. There are two 30 kilo anchors, ample chain and anchor winch. There is also a 15 kilo bruce aft anchor. Two dinghies, one aluminium 10footer with a 2.3 hp honda 4 stroke motor the other is a porta bote in excellent condition. Both alternatos have been refurbished and there are new starter batteries for each motor. The pantry has a near new 85 litre fridge freezer and heaps of storage. Reason for selling is that I am 67 years old and have no need for a three bedroom yacht so will downsize. Reasonable offers will be considered, unreasonable offers may be treated with the contempt they deserve. Some performance figures from recent trip. Added about 100 hours each motor. Top speed under power was 8 knots at 3000 revs. Still heaps to go. Pushed into 20 knot s to sw on way down. Engine revs 2000, speed 5 knots average, fuel consumption was about 2.5 litres per motor.
