Vessel has recently undergone a major refurbishment at Boatworks on the Gold Coast including new standing and running rigging, new lifelines and clips, new bowsprit and rigging hardware by Everything Marine Australia, antifouling, topside paint. New mattresses and cushions throughout. New cockpit cushions, new Victron solar system with Victron panel and 100/30 Victron solar smart charger controller. With bluetooth connectivity. New 450ah house deep cycle battery bank and new starter battery, new inflatable 3.1m tender and newish 2.5hp Mariner outboard. Additional GRP launch with Yamaha 5Hp 4 stroke also available.

New 70lb Manson plough anchor with swivel head and 100m of 10mm short-link chain. New dual antennae Telstra 4GX WiFi broadband system. 2 New Horseshoe liferings. Man overboard beacon. New 406Mhz EPIRB. Excellent sail wardrobe and new sail covers. New teak handrails x 6, new 1" thick teak dorade boxes and cowl vents x 4.

The hull was stripped back an applied 3 coats of epoxy barrier paint, 3 coats of epoxy primer, 3 coats of top coat and has just had three coats of antifoul.

The vessel was purchased with a vision to sail it around the world in 2020 pre-Covid. The vessel was originally registered with British Registry and is currently an Australian Registered Ship with QLD registration and current Rego and Insurance. This vessel can sail offshore today and is even provisioned with food.

It is an extremely capable offshore cruiser. It has a balanced ketch rig that is brand new and finely tuned. At 20 kts the helm is effortless and will hold course for hours without the autopilot.

It has a V-berth forward with head to port and a workshop to starboard. In the main saloon to port is a table and seating and to starboard over-under bunks that can fold down to one large settee. Galley alley to port with heaps of useful storage. Walk in engine room with standing headroom and port access panel. Engine is a 45hp Lister diesel that is very strong and well maintained with recent replacement of the impeller pump and hoses. Aft of the galley is a queen berth, sink and dedicated chart table and navigation station leading to the aft companionway.

The vessel is equipped with UHF, HF radio and a new portable UHF/HF handheld. 16 Mile Kodan radar, GPS, Handheld compass and binnacle compass, paper charts for the east coast of Australia and Navionics chart plotter for Australia and NZ. New VHF crew radios.

The vessel carries 450L of water in several underfloor tanks and 450L of fuel in two port and starboard tanks.

There are two refrigeration units on board. One is an engine driven compressor that will drop the fridge freezer in 20 mins to -15c. When the engine is off it switches to solar/battery to maintain the temperature with a 5ah draw. New lighting throughout with stylish LED lights and fluorescent lights bringing total ah draw to under 10ah with a 30ah input from solar.

The vessel is very quiet (45mm hull), comfortable in hot or cold weather and a stable sailing platform with easy handling that is very forgiving.

The hull was professionally built to the highest standards. The hull is 40MPA concrete that was cured for 8 weeks under sprinkler. Everything about the boat is over-built / engineered. It is a super-dry hull shape and the bow throws water as it enters a wave with very solid performance (we have two young children aged 2 and 4) The vessels sail configuration allows you to balance the boat while maintaining speed and handling.

The vessel is currently on our buoy mooring at Bongaree on Bribie Island which could potentially go with the sale - tackle is about 1 year old and the 2020/2021 Diver report has just been done. Price of the changeover with MSQ is $3,200 for the tackle plus $56 annual registration fees

We are looking at offering the vessel as an outright sale or we would potentially look at exchanging it for vacant land, a holiday accommodation unit or even potentially a motorhome or vehicle in exchange.

This vessel is ready to go sailing today, nothing to do and very tidy - If you want to leave it all behind and explore the world, you can certainly do that with this vessel and never look back. Covid restrictions are easing in the south pacific bubble and will soon ease everywhere else making this an opportunity of a lifetime.

We are selling only because my wife has recently had to take over her families resort business that is pushing our sailing dream back by a few years. I hope we can find a vessel as good as this one when we are looking again in a few years?
