This boat has been set up to Cat 1 standards and has already proved her seaworthiness with a cruise from NZ to Australia under her own steam. The amount of space on deck is what really sets her apart from the competition and truly makes this an entertainers dream. Burning a maximum of 2L/hr per motor and with a top speed of 10Kts this is an economical boat to own and run.
Her layout consists of two double berths one either side up forward plus two large single berths aft. The galley is in the port hull and features all new appliances ample storage and marble bench tops. The starboard hull is the heart of the electronics with a clearly laid out control panel and battery storage. The head is to starboard and has a hot shower, macerator toilet with 65L holding tank. Up top the central saloon has an aft facing U-shaped lounge which converts to a double and a flat screen TV for entertainment. The Fusion stereo system runs three amps with speakers on the fore and aft decks, inside and on the flybridge plus a subwoofer internally mounted.
The aft deck is amazing with seating down each side and a lower helm station to starboard. A large open area leads aft to the custom island bar, the natural focal point for guests aboard the boat. With a marble bench top, stainless steel gas BBQ and sink on top plus a pull-out Waeco fridge, Honda genset and rubbish bins below, any chef will be well catered for on this boat.
The custom dinghy davits have been designed to take a jet ski but currently have an inflatable tender and outboard. Boarding from the tender is made easy thanks to the modified transoms which extend further aft and are almost level with the waterline.
The main helm station is located on the flybridge with two adjustable seats and a huge L-shaped lounge with seating for 10. Raymarine chartplotter, autopilot, VHF, stereo and windless controls are all at your fingertips.
The foredeck is set up for relaxing with sun cushions and plenty of open space. The life raft is also located on the foredeck and access is via wide side decks with grab rails on both sides.
This boat is so detailed and in such great condition she has to be seen to be believed. If you are looking for a vessel to take you to far away places, a family boat with enough space and entertainment for everyone or the ultimate entertainers boat this custom Roger Simpson design will suit.
