PRICE DROPPED!! NOW ONLY ASKING AU$185,000 (will consider any reasonable offers)

This stunning yacht has a sleek hull designed by the Salthouse Brothers, New Zealand and is a very luxurious live aboard/bluewater cruiser.
It is turn key ready to set sail tomorrow! These boats were built strong and we've found her to be very sturdy in any seas which makes her quite a safe vessel for worldwide cruising.

It must be seen in person to be able to appreciate its absolute beauty... With her sleek lines and craftmanship teak interiors as well as spacious cabins (each with their own private ensuite) this yacht is a catch at such a low asking price! They usually go on the market with a minumum of a US$200,000 asking price but we're ready to accept less for a faster sale.

There were only a handful of these luxury cruising yachts built, 17 in total... Which makes her a rare vessel.
The hull was designed by the Salthouse Brothers New Zealand, built in South Korea and then the rest was fully decked out with imported American equipment by the first owner.

She has a very spacious aft master cabin (2 Double berths 1.40m x 1.90m each) with its own private head and separate shower stall; plus there is also ample space in the forward stateroom, which also has its own head and shower.
She can accommodate 6 people in comfort; plus the saloon table converts to another double berth for any extra guests. Sleeping 8 people in total.

This Venus 46 is offered well equipped with her extended inventory that you can find on venus46forsale. Webs. Com

It features the standard two cabin layout, two bathrooms and walk-through corridor... Starting aft is the Master Stateroom with 2 double berths, a hanging locker to port, drawers and storage lockers... Then to starboard is the head with its separate shower stall. To port is the walk-through corridor with double doors leading to the spacious engine room (situated under the cockpit). Continuing forward we come to the navigation station and the stairs leading to the center cockpit. To starboard there is a well equipped galley and through a key hole opening is two very nicely shaped settees that have loads of storage space behind both sides with ample storage lockers also below. Forward of the saloon to port is the second head and finally, forward is the V-Berth, hanging locker and more storage.
The aft Master Stateroom has 2 double berths with drawers beneath and bookshelf above... Additional storage lockers below, to port a wardrobe and a four-drawer bureau.

The Venus 46 has a good deck layout and a great center cockpit with deep sides which makes it very comfortable in any seas. There's enough space for 6 people to sit and relax in total comfort. The cockpit features full instruments and has four large storage lockers plus an ice cooler. There is good protection with a NEW Bimini (2015) and a solid aluminum hard bimini which keeps the sun and wet weather out. On the fwd deck there's a large vertical windlass with stainless chain guard and there are two deck hatches aft that provide ample storage, including one for the outboard engine, gas and propane.

Important Note: This vessel has been imported into Australia, with all taxes and fees fully paid!

New 200w Solar Panel installed (now total 500w for charging)
Saloon and chart table cushions re-upholstered
