That is a gorgeous vessel. The best of times with her.

What are her specs?

Queensland is blessed with large single engine traditional build timber boats of long distance cruising capacity, more than any other state I think. Probably due to the longer distances and extended cruising attractions of Queensland.
A very interesting boat Simi 60, which should provide you with a wonderful "grey nomad" retirement cruising lifestyle.

New poster and a new (to me) boat.

Lovely boat, enjoy your travels, almost 12 months on board and we have no regrets.

Thank you.
I have lusted for her and her sister for a few years and was surprised to see her pop up on my bargain basement radar.

She's a Millkraft 60 ex prawn trawler.
18 & 1/2 ft beam, close to 7ft draft.
2 inch thick hardwood planking in hull, close enough to 60 tonne when lifted 2 weeks ago with half load of fuel and about 1000 of water.
Carries 7000 litres of diesel in 2 tanks.
around 5000 litres of fresh in 4 tanks.
In 2000 she had a new Cummins NT855 installed - has 3500 hours on it now.
In 2003 to 2006 she was chopped at the deck and turned into a twin decker and was then used as the occasional weekender. Previous owner reckons he threw $800k at her and I'd believe it.
For the last few years she has be neglected, the previous owner moved considerable distance away and she got to much for him so we took her off his hands.

Here is the last add for her
Millkraft Motor Cruiser Ex Trawler Liveaboard: Power Boats | Boats Online for Sale | Timber | Queensland (Qld) | Boats Online

We'll launch on Friday having re positioned and re routed the raw water system, cut some rot from bulwarks, painted topsides up to cap rail, new antifoul, new anodes, new 150lb Manson supreme, 3 x 3000gph bilge pumps and float switches, 8 x 220ah batts, Victron 4500w inverter charger, 9 x 250w solar panels, Midnite classic 150 mppt, new Koden Fishfinder and transducer, 3.5m aluminium dinghy and 15hp Suzuki ob.

Simi-beautiful boat! Good luck with her. But, isn't the steering wheel on the wrong side?

I hope you are good at sanding and varnishing!

What was the netting for - keep birds off?

You approach other vessels port to port, makes sense to have the wheel on the port side.

No varnishing
Once sanded all timber will be painted
