Powered by Caterpillar 3196 660hp engines, bowthruster, davit crane, windlass, Raymarine TV Sat Dome, 11KVA generator, watermaker, four interfaced glass bridge computers with full navigation and engine instrumentation displayed. She has been shrink wrapped every winter. Great value for a meticulalously maintained vessel.

Broker Comments

"Sally Lillian" is a superb example of used Trader 54 Sunliner. She has been maintained and updated consistently to a very high standard. The navigation equipment aboard this Trader 54 is particularly impressive, although extremely comprehensive it is intuitive and user-friendly. Probably the most customised Sunliner 54 to leave the factory! Her owners have previously cruised for extended periods throughout the summer months, this is evident in the level of backup in all regards to avoid inconveniences whilst away from her home port. There is an extensive spares list which will be made available to the purchaser. Although this vessel is laid out predominantly as an owner's boat with an additional guest cabin there is the option to convert the dinette into a further double and the starboard side saloon settee could also very easily be converted to a sofa bed for occasional guests.
