They dont make 'em like this anymore! "RM Dreamchaser" is a proven Australian registered world cruising yacht professionaly built in Coreten steel and launched in the Netherlands in 1981.
Maintained and upgraded in caring fashion her Colin Archer double ender design is world renowned for comfort and stability. Set up for short handed sailing Dreamchaser has a traditional multi chine hull and super strong over sized rigging, twin helms in a well appointed pilot house and large covered cockpit. A beautifully crafted mahogonay timber interior includes all mod cons in a well equipped galley, aft master cabin, laundry and head.
A full sail wardrobe new in 2011 of part battened main, mizzen, staysail, furling genoa and spinnaker with sock plus storm sails are all in great nick.
Built in the Netherlands by professional shipbuilders Rajo then sailed to Australia via Atlantic and Pacific oceans with two trips to the Antarctic plus numerous crossings to Noumea under her belt she has spent the past 10 years as a liveaboard cruising the Queensland coast.
Extensively refitted and hull repainted in 2011 she presents in good condition. A lovely vessel, well equipped to cruise offshore in comfort and safety she is easily mastered and very forgiving. A truly great yacht for first timers well maintained and reliable, she never falters.
Antifoul and out of water survey completed Dec 2017. The owner has also recently refurbished the anchor winch, genoa self tailing winches, auto pilot drive and outboard motor plus installed new 120 amp alternator, new mast wiring, new anchor chain, new vhf radio, new chartplotter, new depth sounder and transducer, a new 2000watt inverter plus extra solar panels. There's tons of spare parts and charts as you would imagine all adding up to great value.
