Remarks
Gadfly is a very well found, very strong, forgiving cruising boat and is superbly equipped for coastal or distance cruising. Easily managed by a couple and very comfortable with 6 foot, plus headroom below deck. She has completed 50,000 miles with the current owner in Australia and overseas and is in turn-key state for further cruising; Australian registry. The boat has been serviced, maintained and improved on an ongoing basis with redundancy introduced for critical systems including radios, navigation, self steering, fuel systems, navigation lights and charging. A comprehensive kit of spares is also carried on board. The fuel system has been installed to commercial (AMSA/NSCV) standard with 'at sea, in-parrallel', switching capability to accomodate fuel filtration or blockage issues whilst underway The decks are due some paint and this would bring the boat to an outstanding state of presentation. The latter notwithstanding the vessel could leave immediately for further coastal or offshore cruising with no expenses required.
