One would imagine that Kay Cottee had a lot of time to contemplate her perfect cruiser. Crossing the Equator, she would have considered the value of Air Conditioning.   After a thorough soaking in the Southern Ocean, surely a washer/dryer would be on the list.    

3 cabins and 3 heads (2 with standalone showers). A dining table for 8, plus a private breakfast nook for 2. A large cockpit with outside table. In the galley, a dishwasher (of course), Gas cooktop and oven, lots of fridge and freezer space, Corian benchtops.   And in the Saloon, a hideaway television and hideaway sound system, lounge chairs and a full-size chart table.   

Above deck, a Leisure Furling main, self-tacking Staysail and Furling Genoa got the tick. Sailing should never be hard work again. Electric primaries, bow and stern thrusters, electric anchor and keel lift system, all available from either helm.   A deep fin and torpedo bulb for stability off-shore, with a hydraulic lift so that Lord Howe Island lagoon could still be accessible. Twin rudders for control also create a tripod with the raised keel for support should she dry out on the tide.  

Basically, every modern luxury in a solidly built cruising yacht with an attention to detail you won't ever find in a production yacht. "Carpe Diem" is in superb condition and will give a new owner a legendary cruising boat that attracts much attention.
