My wife and I purchased this boat on first sight. We have been looking for awhile and mostly disappointed with what we have found until we found this one. It is pristine outside and in. It is not just trimmed in teak, it is lined in teak inside from bow to stern including teak and holly floors everywhere that are in like new condition. The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed and fabulous built in closets and dresser with so much head room, I can barely touch the ceiling reaching up. My wife says the galley is bigger than some we have seen in new houses. There is a propane stove with oven, electric stove, microwave, toaster oven, double Stainless Steel sink, 1/2 size fridge and lots and lots of cupboards and drawers - all teak and mohogany. It is almost 7' tall - a step stool is needed to open the hatch. The forward berth is also quite tall with built in closet and drawers and each berth is complete with 110 volt and 12volt outlets along with their own reading light. The head is lined in teak with cabinets and drawers that make it one of a kind. The shower is entered from the head through a smoked plexiglass door and amazingly is full size (big enough for two ) including an opening window. The previous owner set a very high standard of care for this vessel. Everywhere we are finding spares and tools etc. to guarrantee no interuptions on extended cruises. There was no expense spared in outfitting this boat either from the imaculate blue Ford Diesel to the huge windlass to the two CQRs, the diesel furnace, the radar and GPS, Auto Pilot,VHF with DSC, depth finder and knot meter everything here is first class. It didn't take long for us to realize we have been privileged to be the stewards of this one of a kind vessel and already feel obliged to keep it in it's pristine condition until it is time to pass it on to the next owner - hopefully many years from now.

Crickey...it sounds like Dr Who's tardis...all that stuff in her and still room to move..and...an island double...unreal...
Welcome to the forum.
Sounds like the sort of boat to buy. From an owner with bottomless pockets and obsessive compulsive personality to have everything perfect. Then you get to be the one to relax and enjoy...

Still trying to learn all we can but admit we have taken the time to have a cup of tea on the deck watching the sun go down on occasion!

A couple of more weekends and conversation will turn to hauling out, winterizing, boat shows in January then getting ready for our first full season next year. That will be something!

Anytime towards the end of October it can start to get frosty here. It's good to know she is all tucked away snug come the winter storms. They relaunch after the ice goes out in April. That gives us lots of time to plan for the next season.

I couldn't hack that...I'd die of boating withdrawal symptoms.

Hello again to Peter B. Our boat is up on shore now all shrinkwrapped and secure. We had a heck of a storm come through last weekend -you likely heard of all the damage etc. in the States, but we luckily only had 100 kilometer winds and blowing snow to deal with. How are things down under?
