Bruce Roberts designs are renowned for their Bluewater capabilities, sailing performance, and comfortable interiors. This 47ft Centre Cockpit Cutter Rigged Cruiser is truly exceptional. Launched by the legendary John Muir of Muir Winches, and now on its second experienced and fastidious owner, the vessel has benefited from a lifetime of high quality maintenance and upgrades. It competed in the 50th Sydney to Hobart Race, has completed 5 Tasmanian Circumnavigations with the Royal Yacht Club, and under the current owner has recently cruised up to Hong Kong and through Asia before returning in Hobart. The list of recent upgrades is truly impressive including NEW 2018 Mainsail and Headsail, NEW 2020 full suit of Raymarine and B&G Electronics, NEW 2020 Batteries, NEW 2015 Standing Rigging, NEW 2017 Rudder and stern modification to improve performance, the list goes on! This is a vessel that has had no stone left unturned, it has even had Kevlar reinforcing added to the bow to make it suitable to take into high latitude icy waters! Both owners have used their vast wealths of experience to create a vessel that is perfectly prepared to serious offshore cruising.

Stepping inside, the volume of the vessel is immediately apparent, and it is beautifully fitted out with varnished blackwood timber trims. The stunning timber dinette has seating around it for 8 on the comfortable settees. The accommodation is very well appointed with a master cabin aft with a double berth, single berth, and vanity. The private forepeak has two singles, and there is a third private cabin with a single pilot berth. There are an additional 4 berths available in the saloon all complete with lee cloths for offshore passages. The galley is to starboard and features a huge eutectic fridge and separate freezer, 2 burner gas stove with oven and grill, stainless steel sink with hot and cold pressurised water, and excellent storage. The package is complete with private bathroom with electric toilet and shower.

On deck, the cockpit is fully protected with a near new set of clears creating a pilothouse type feel. The varnish work is immaculate and the self tailing winches gleam and highlight the quality of the vessel. The pod style helm station features a NEW 2020 12" Raymarine Axiom Chart Plotter, auto pilot, and engine instrumentation. The NEW 2020 B&G displays are in easy view from here with wind/speed/depth information. The wide decks are easy to walk around and there is exceptional space on the foredeck. Aft is a very well engineered A Frame with dinghy davits, solar panels, and antennas.

It is rare that such a well presented vessel, with extensive upgrades and the ability to cruise anywhere in the world in such comfort comes on the market. With its impressive design and cruising history, it presents as a turn key package ready to go on its next adventure!
