NOW WITH BRAND NEW AQUA PRO RIB as well as new engine, new mast, new rigging new sails, recently anti foulded and surveyed plus so much more! If you're looking for a roomy, reliable and high performance proven blue water cruiser that is immaculately finished; comprehensively equipped and beautifully and professionally maintained, this incredible Oceanic 46, blue-water cruiser is your ticket to adventure...

Professionally updated, serviced and with all new gear - you're basically getting a brand new boat!

Australian registered, Quiet Achiever is a contemporary designed, ocean-proven cruiser from world-renown designer Jack Savage and the Oceanic factory in Victoria and bears all the hallmarks of their long, respected and proven reputation for solid, craftsman-built, dependable and extremely sea worthy and owner friendly world cruisers.

With just two owners since her commission in 1994, Quiet Achiever has cruised up and down the Australian coast including a circumnavigation of Tasmania before sailing across the top to Darwin and then up to SIngapore via Sulawesi and Bali and then spending almost 10 years exploring South East Asia, before recently returning home to Australia.

Throughout all of that extended cruising, Quiet Achiever has exceeded every one of her crew's expectations providing a totally independent lifestyle of comfort, style and safety - whether far out at sea, snug in a marina or floating serenely in a far-flung, exotic anchorage.

With her solid, hand laid GRP hull and cored GRP moulded in, non-slip deck plus extensive use of warm, solid teak cabinetry below - Quiet Achiever is arguably one of the most solid and dependable blue water cruising vessels you'll find anywhere in her size and class.

Quiet Achiever's sails are in mint condition with all sheets and lines coming back into her well protected cockpit. Her mast, boom and all rigging was professionally replaced late 2016 and her 75hp Yanmar 4JH4TE Diesel with just 1100 hrs, runs like a dream.

With a deep, spacious and well-protected cockpit and solid custom designed hard dodger for total enclosure in adverse weather, all of Quiet Acheiver's sheets and lines returning to the helm area, giving her ithe perfect set up for short handed sailing.

Below decks, Quiet Achiever boasts full 6'2' headroom - from her substantial queen-size aft cabin and ensuite; her generous galley with substantial bench tops; spacious and well appointed saloon - right through to her large forward V berth and adjacent heads.

Professionally wired with 240v shore power distributed throughout via integrated circuit breakers and double pole switching, Quiet Achiever also features 5 Trojan Gel Deep Cycle Batteries (4 x 100amp/hr, 1 x 80 amp/hr) plus a 100 amp/hr Trojan Gel Deep Cycle engine Battery. Combine this with Quiet Achiever's 300W wind generator, 4 x 100W solar panels and over 130amp engine alternator and you've got power to go.

With Quiet Achiever's large steering wheel, chain/cable quadrant controls and well balanced rudder, her steering provides fingertip control and a level of response that will amaze making this Oceanic 46 a pleasure to sail in any conditions.

Over the last few months Quiet Achiever has sat on the hard in Cairns, benefiting from a new antifouling with her owners intending to provision here and then in a few weeks, sail her south to the Whitsundays and onto Sydney and later Melbourne.

They do accept however, that being in almost perfect condition with new engine, mast, rigging and sails, not to mention so well priced, Quiet Achiever is likely to be snapped up quickly, long before any of that eventuates.

The vessel is currently cruising down the Qld coast on her way to Melbourne but the owners are happy to drop into any port along the way for a viewing - just give them a call to organise a time. This vessel is available for immediate sale and the owners will be constantly updating their website at www. Oceanic46bluewatercruisingyacht4sale. Com as to her present location and will be more than happy to make their fabulous Oceanic 46 available for viewing anywhere along the way.

From mast head to keel foot, this beautiful, well-appointed and dependable blue water cruiser presents in mint condition and with an almost new engine, new mast, new rigging new sails, not to mention a massive list of major spares and equipment, Quiet Achiever is ready to take her next crew out into the blue...

... Could that be you?
