    $320,000

    Aquarian Highlights:  Two owners since new. Never Chartered. Excellent presentation Serious long-range passage-maker with 2000nm range  Last fully surveyed July 2018 by Australian surveyor. Report available Tax pad in Australia, New Caledonia and Fiji for your choice of location without having cruising permit restrictions Australian registered Australian built by professional aluminium ship builders to Lloyds Standards Maintained beautifully by Vuda Marina's excellent detailing team during the owner's absence Many recent upgrades such as new air conditioning (2019), new 4.5 kwa diesel generator (2015), engines regularly serviced, etc.  ----------------- Designed by Andrew McDonald-Smith (Lloyds Ships. Marine Designer-Australia), this 48' power catamaran was built to comply with the most stringent quality control and to sustain the most grueling sea conditions. Her owner had her built by the very best aluminum boat-building specialists in Australia, Coral Coast Marine Construction Pty Ltd, a company specializing in shipbuilding of both commercial power catamarans as well as large luxury pleasure crafts.Operating his own Marine Design business for the past 8 years, Andrew McDonald-Smith's personal portfolio (spanning from 4.3m to 20m vessels with thousands of designs on the water) as been acknowledged with numerous Australian awards as an independent designer. Andrew works closely with the owner and yard to produce the best result for all parties, with clients receiving 100% effort to completion. As a Mechanical Engineer with a trade back ground, Andrew McDonald-Smith began Marine Engineering and Design 20 years ago with Lloyds Ships and has since worked with South East Queensland's foremost luxury yacht building yards. 'Aquarian' is a fast, long-distance cruiser, having cruised several times between Australia, New Caledonia and Fiji in records time. Built to comfortably and effortlessly cover huge distances in all weather conditions, her previous owner, a keen surfer who purchased the boat to chase the best swells the South Pacific has to offer, bringing 'Aquarian' back and forth between his home in QLD and his other home in the beautiful Manamuca Islands in Fiji. Aquarian has also been imported in New Caledonia, where she can also remain indefinitely. This could be very interesting for someone wishing to spend extended amount of time either in Australia, New Caledonia or Fiji, where cruising permits normally last 12-18 months. In 2018, Aquarian was sold to her current owners, a Hawaiian couple of entrepreneurs who thought to use the boat for their own pleasure when in Fiji, but mostly looked at developing her as a surfing and fishing charter. Unfortunately, due to Covid, the venture never eventuated and the boat is now back on the market. Built of 4mm thick alloy above the waterline and 5mm below, over an extremely strong aluminum frame and grid, this veritable ship means business. She was specifically chosen by her owner to be able to safely cruise the sometimes tricky waters of the Pacific Islands, where uncharted reef abounds, as well as sustain some of the roughest ocean conditions. Her hull is insulated above the waterline to keep the cabin cool in the hot weather, and warm when it is cool as well as protect the cabins against condensation.  'Aquarian' is turnkey and a great choice for someone looking for a near-new passage-maker and serious offshore cruising vessel. She is accordingly equipped with all the necessary cruising electronics, water-maker, new Genset 2015, brand new air conditioning, huge inverter, Alloy RIB on davits and extensive safety inventory. The boat is wired in 240V and 12 V. 'Aquarian' was re-sprayed in 2-pack Epoxy in 2014 and her hull is in beautiful condition. There are a few areas in the cockpit which could do with a touch up, although these are really minor and restricted to traffic areas. The interior is fresh and clean, with new upholstery in the salon as well as the aft deck and flybridge (all exterior upholstery done by Marshall Sails in 2018). Intelligently designed to marry muscle and ultimate competence at sea with a luxurious but practical interior, 'Aquarian's list of great features is impressive.   Here are the main outlines: -Boat easily boarded in all weather via the two wide aft steps and boarding platforms-Large aft cockpit with a lovely curved settee and large capacity storage hatches both under the floor and the seats. -Wide access hatches to engine rooms -Good access to the forward deck via the side deck, which are fitted with stainless steel grab-rails-Flush access through the two reinforced-glass doors to the saloon and main cabin. -A sturdy ladder reaches the huge flybridge, which combines a large sitting area, small bar fridge, more storage and the helm area, which is situated to offer great visibility around the whole ship and the forward deck. -Full set of clears and solid GRP Bimini are suitable in all weather and provide great protection at sea while still being modular. (Please note that the upholstery photographed here is showing the old set, but is being replaced with new now in white with a small blue trim. )-A large head with fully separate shower is accessed via the cockpit and a full size reinforced glass door. -Huge main cabin with opening tinted windows for great cross ventilation-Large saloon / dinette with separate lounge. Brand new flat screen TV / Home theatre.-Open plan galley on same level as saloon with ample food preparation area, full size stand up fridge / freezer, (brand new), double SS sink, Mircowave and plenty of storage.-4 X large double cabins, 2 X with ensuite and plenty of storage / hanging lockers / drawers. -Additional full size bathroom accessed from main deck, with separate shower, toilet and wash basin, all very clean and in great condition.-Powerful air conditioning in main cabin effortlessly cools down the whole boat and was recerntly replaced with new so that it can be used both when connected to shore power or when running the generator -2 x YANMAR 4LHA 260HP. Approx consumption. 1600RPM -10-12 knots 20 L per hour total. 2600 RPM - 15.5k to 17 knots 43-50 Lph ( depending on boat weight/fuel load)-2000L fuel capacity for serious offshore cruising.   For more information please contact our cruising yacht specialist Anna at Nautilus Yacht Management Pty Ltd.

    Custom 53' Finot Design

    Nadi, Fiji
    2003
    $199,135

    HIGHLIGHTS Designed by the celebrated Jean-Marie Finot as fast and seaworthy blue water cruiser / racer Custom-built to the highest standards by Class Yacht  Built to Class A Unlimited Offshore Standards Designed for circumnavigation. Extensively refitted by second owner between 2013-2019 Set up for solo handed ocean passages New rigging 2018 Mast removed and fully refurbished 2013 New sails 2019 Motor removed and full rebuild 2013 Vetus Bowthruster Retractable carbon fibre bow thruster Two-speed electric winches 1500w anchor winch (with new motor 2017) Black and grey holding tanks Two autopilots and a Wind Pilot for ample self steering choices 3 cabins plus independent crew cabin in bow with own toilet and wash basin Only two owners Handed over with everything needed to just move in and head out into the sunset now.. Read on for full description and watch our Youtube presentation for more info ------------------- This beautiful sailing yacht was custom built in 2003 by the shipyard Class Yacht on a design of Jean-Marie Finot for a professional racing sailor who wanted a performance cruising yacht able to sail him and his family fast and safely around the world. He kept her for 10 years and sold her to an Italian colleague, another racing and professional skipper who was looking for the exact same quality in a cruising yacht and who after purchase in 2013 and throughout his cruising years whenever he identified something as  needing to be replaced.. The list of upgrades is impressive and ensures that the boat will continue to deliver performance and safety at sea for her new family. Sadly, a change of circumstances has seen her voyage interrupted for now as the owner must return to Italy. Months of cruising were wasted in Covid-19 lockdown and her voyage has been cut short. If borders are now strrating to re-open for cruisers as they have the privilege to be in isolation at sea for long period of time and represent little danger to visited countries, Zahir's owner has run out of time. The yacht has been handed over to our team in Fiji to take care of her and to liaise with you should you be interested to find out more. Since Covid-19 rendered actual visits a little tricky, we are now very used to carry out inspections via Zoom or WhatsApp, which is working very well and are happy to spend as much time with you as you wish showing you the boat via your iPad, phone or Computer. We are cruising yachts specialist and are here to help Zahir is an exceptional boat, which combines a sleek, racing profile with a serious 'can do attitude' designed to be at home in all ocean conditions. Her 8mm GRP construction has been reinforced with additional layers of Kevlar over the whole hull for extra strength and resistance to impact should you be unlucky enough to hit something at sea. To prevent twisting and bending of the hull while under stress (very much a problem on production boats), her hull is further reinforced with a stainless steel frame similar to the designs of the Nautor Swans and X-Yachts designed for serious bluewater cruising.Her keel is not just attached to the GRP hull. It is attached to the steel frame first and thus incredibly well bonded to the boat. Her chainplates are attached to a reinforced stainless steel brace which reached deep towards the centre of the boat and help spread the chainplates efforts. Her decks, which used be GRP / closed cell foam sandwich with teak covering, has been fully renovated and reinforced in 2013. Instead of replacing the teak, which was aged, the owner had the teak removed and the deck throughly prepared for strengthening. 3 additional layers of glass matt and epoxy high-build were applied followed with a non-skid paint from an excellent manufacturer in New Zealand. The decks now have an 8mm Epoxy lamination and are extremely strong as well as low maintenance. Her sails were replaced in 2019 and her rigging in 2018. Her reliable Yanmar engine was removed and completely rebuilt. All through-hull fittings were replaced. The lost goes on... Zahir, true to her form as a yacht design to circumnavigate, also come with a spare, emergency rudder that is ready to drop in brackets already fitted to the transom in case of failure. The rudder comes with its own tiller, and there is the additional emergency tiller ready to deploy. Self-Steering, one of the most important factor for solo-sailors, is supplied by a reliable autopilot, with an additional autopilot wired and ready to use at the push of a button should the primary one fail... plus the sturdy Wind Pilot, perfect for ocean crossings. Watching the owner effortlessly raise the sails and power into the wind at Musket Cove the other day, it is easy to see that his claim that the boat is set up for solo sailing is absolutely justified. Steering comfortably between the reefs, he quickly gained momentum and in spite the very light breeze quickly had us chasing him on the speed boat. (Watch our Youtube Video) Power winches take the hard work out of raising and trimming the sails, while dedicated clutched for each rope make cleats and other agricultural deck hardware redundant. Aesthetically hidden in the deep and wide anchor locker the retractable carbon fibre bowsprit is ready to be easily deployed to fit out the Gennaker. Anchoring is done seamlessly, with the dedicated anchor bowsprit and articulated roller tease the friction of the sail on retrieval. There are two anchors, onearelady fittedtoits100m stainless steel chain, which is big enough to hold Zahir through any whims the weather. An additional anchor is stored below. For those used to having to flake anchor chain or risk their limbs spreading the chain bulk in order to de-anchor, Zahir boast the rare and very refreshing asset not having this issue. The chain falls into a deep well with plenty of room to accomodate even that amount of chain all pulled up in one go. The cockpit is wide and open, with very good shade to get away from the tropical sun or rain and to entertain many guests for dinner. Because of arrow Zahir's shape, it is wide and the centre table does not impede on traffic. The two carbon fibre wheels are sturdy and not too large, giving you back space for when you want to move around. The cockpit has several large lazarettes and storage lockers, as well as the access hatch for the engine and another one for the steering quadrant. (The video shows it all. Follow the link to our Youtube presentation) Inside, Jean-Marie Finot does not let us down. The superb saloon is wide open and welcoming. The galley, U-shape is large is suited to cooking while at sea. The saloon, which curves around a mahogany table, is comfortable and large enough to sit 8 people comfortably. The headroom is over 6.4 at it's minimum. Forward is the Master cabin, with it's queen size bed and full-size settee in white leather still in very good condition.The cabin door, large and curved, slides into into the bulkhead to free up space. Forward is the large ensuite head area with shower and electric toilet. Forward again is the crew cabin, which can be accessed via the deck hatch or a door in the forward bathroom. It has single bunk beds, a manual toilet and wash-basin. A large sail locker is accessed via a deck hatch forward of the crew cabin. Going back aft are two guests cabins with queen / king size beds and each their own ensuite electric head and shower. Storage for everything is abundant and well-suited to extended life onboard.   ---------------- Read on for the full description and for more information please contact our friendly team at Nautilus Yacht Management.

  7. Catana 521

    Catana 521

    Suva, Fiji
    2003
    $699,000

    Catana 521 "O2" is an exquisite owner version, blue water performance catamaran.  Many listings lay claim to be the “best equipped” or "best refit"! Scroll down to the specification sections and view the walk-through video and judge for yourself! In the last two years this Catana 521 has had nearly $300,000 spent in upgrades and new equipment. "O2" is in outstanding condition and has never been chartered. She's ready to go and has everything needed for crossing oceans, from new sails and standing rigging down to ocean passaging pilot books for the Pacific Ocean. "O2" has been lovingly maintained to a very high standard; kept light (mindful of how weight affects performance), she is fast and the passion of the current owners, who pay great attention to every detail and take great pride in her condition, shines through. I have been involved in the marketing and sale of several Catana 52s in the last ten years. "O2" stands out as the most comprehensively equipped and meticulously maintained. "O2" started life in privileged fashion: she was built by Dominique Marsaudon in Lorient in 2003. This is no ordinary Catana therefore as Marsaudon is the Mozart of composites, best known for having built several racing (IDEC, GROUPAMA) and cruising multihulls (the TS42, TS5 series) in what is the capital of French multihull sailing.    We have known the owners of O2 for a number of years and have visited the yacht on several occasions as she travelled the Caribbean and the US East Coast. Seldom have I met such passionate, knowledgeable yachtsmen who know what it takes to sail a blue water cat efficiently and to maintain it at the highest level. The owners have owned several cats, are accomplished sailors and have brought years of multihull experience to bear in the specification of this superb yacht. The higher-than-average specification, beautiful condition, and the attention to detail paid by the current owners ensures "O2" looks much newer than other comparable sister-ships. She's been continuously upgraded almost regardless of cost. Catana… Legendary design, performance, quality, comfort and safety (unsinkable), the Catana 52s are primarily aimed at the bespoke owners market and those that want to cruise seriously. The Catana 52's high bridge-deck clearance gives a very smooth ride compared with many other catamarans. Dagger-boards provide superior windward performance with the advantage of shallow draft. A beam under 30 ft allows many more opportunities for haul-out and seasonal storage in out-of-the-way places. The yacht's design offers excellent natural ventilation through generous sized, well-placed hatches. Lastly, it has huge volume for carrying all you'll need to circumnavigate, with cavernous space under all bunks, saloon seating and hanging lockers in every cabin, plus huge lockers on deck and in the cockpit. Performance & Handling…This 521 easily achieves double digit speeds. As an example, the owners crossed the Atlantic in absolute comfort and safety in less than 12 days recording a top speed of more than 18 knots. The owners chose the 521 as probably the best and largest catamaran that any couple could comfortably handle and maintain with ease, without the need of crew. It motors economically at 7 knots on one engine or can cruise along with both engines at 8+ knots and has a top speed of 10 knots. The Catana 52's provide high performance ocean passaging in safety & comfort, with uncluttered decks and efficient handling systems… it's so easy for a couple to handle such a large volume cat with powerful Volvo engines (on shaft drives, not sail-drives), two headsail furlers and electric winches for sail handling and launch and recovery of inflatables. Safety First…Additional safety via the latest in Satphone communications plus a full suite of Raymarine equipment including 2 chartplotters (one at inside navigation station, the other at the starboard helm), AIS (send and receive), radar and an SSB.  Style...This is probably one of the best looking catamarans around in her classic, navy blue livery. Her tasteful soft furnishings complete the package, being stylish yet tastefully understated….put simply, she's eye catching by any standard. With her discrete lighting throughout, even at night, she outstanding in every respect. The all new LED lighting (inside and out) is an impressive feature including deck and cockpit lights that guide you safely back to the transom after being ashore Layout/Accommodation... This three cabin “owner layout” is lined throughout in rich Canadian Cherry. The owner cabin bathroom features a large walk-in shower stall and the port guest side offers a huge shower stall and seperate head. The aft port cabin can convert from two singles to a large queen berth. Each of the cabins has a 3ft x 1ft opening window for a panoramic view and generous ventilation. All of the bathroom fixtures were replaced in 2019 with stylish Hansgrohe equipment. The liners in the salon were all replaced, as were the opening hatch lenses and seals.  The large bright and airy bridge deck saloon has a dedicated navigation centre (facing forward) and efficient galley layout including 2 large fridges and a freezer, a Force 10 stove (3 burners and oven), Microwave, ample cupboards, loads of storage, a generous dining table that seats 8 comfortably. This leads directly through sliding doors to the cockpit area. A nice feature is the way food and drinks can be easily passed from the galley directly to the cockpit dinning table using the sliding window adjacent the companionway door. The galley sink and faucets are new from Hansgrohe adding a very nice touch.   In addition to power reversible air conditioning for use when in marinas or on the new Northern Lights generator (787 hours), "Nature's AC" is still the best, cheapest and most reliable. Ventilation is provided via a total of 16 hatches/windows that keep this cat cool! There are four large forward facing hatches in the saloon and one in each hull forward (inside the hulls and called "Dolphin Hatches"); these provide masses of cooling air that passes throughout the accommodation. In addition, there are four huge top opening hatches (3ft x 1 ft) on the outside of each hull and six smaller hatches. The large sliding door & window to the saloon ensures a cooling breeze through to the cockpit and outside dining area and an additional sliding screen door keeps the bugs out of the boat. To further enhance cooling there are reflective screens on all salon windows and great awnings all around the cockpit so you'll never get too hot.  Cockpit and outside…This is the hub of a superbly designed entertainment and "living area" that has sun awnings on all three sides, sumptuous reclining seats to relax in and take in the panoramic view and there's seating for 12 in comfort or dining for 8 at the foldout table. Larger parties could easily be accommodated in this area, which is generous by any standard. The fabulous new canvas work in Sunbrella exudes style and taste with complimenting cushions and folding deck seats, discrete lighting in the cockpit area enhances further the entertaining experience. Foredeck…The awning that covers the foredeck, (when required), is great for lazing under in the hammock and provides ample space for parties to enjoy sundowners in the cool breezes. In addition there are cushions for relaxing or reading in the cool shade. The decks are clear and uncluttered for easy and safe walk-around, all roller reefing and spinnaker guys control lines are neatly led aft through under deck conduits. Storage…Masses of storages are provided to take all you need for a circumnavigation with 2 cavernous lockers forward that can holds things like sails, bikes, passerelle, fortress anchors, kite boards, surfboards, fenders and mooring lines etc.. In the cockpit, there are 3 huge lockers that have a combined area about 6ft x 12 ft x 2 ft 6 " deep. Equipped to Circumnavigate…This seriously equipped "Sailor's Cat" is set up for long distance ocean/Trade Wind cruising at it's very best. With it's custom bowsprit design it can handle a sail wardrobe of three headsails for all conditions: two furling sails and a spinnaker…it can honestly be described as a offshore sailors dream catamaran. The mainsail and two of the 3 headsails are brand new 2020: Main: 1000 sq ft (100 sq mtrs) Full batten with three reef Carbon DP, new 2020 Genoa: 750 sq ft (70 sq mtrs) on Profurl roller furler Carbon DP, new 2020 Screecher: 1,100 sq ft (100 sq mtrs), on removeable headstay, new 2020 Symmetric Spinnaker: 1,800 sq ft (170 sq mtrs) with snuffer. Great for dead downwind sailing Upgrades & Special Equipment…"O2" is equipped with a Lorima carbon mast and Park Avenue boom -  the very best. The standing rigging is all new Dyform in 2019 for excellent reliability offshore and in remote places. The Northern Lights generator and watermaker are new in 2019. The boat was rewired and has a new electrical panel 2019. There is a new Mastervolt charger/inverter; a new dive compressor and other recreational equipment. The upgrades and new equipment are too numerous to list and all carefully detailed in the specification attached.  If you are in the market for a genuine blue-water cruiser in top condition, you owe it to yourself to consider "02" carefully. Please contact us for more information on location and to arrange a viewing with our local broker.

Boat to cover the whole boat for storage All new batteries June 2019 Alloy RIB with two outboard engines (one big one small) Too many features to list here.... read the full list in 'Description' ------------------------   The Southerly name needs no word of introduction. The internet abounds with glowing reviews for the Southerly 135s including from big names such as ‘Sail Magazine’ and ‘Cruising World’, commenting on the Southerly’s extraordinary quality of build and the genius of Rob Humphreys’ design. (Please note that the Southerlys are built by Northshore Yachts UK, not Northshore yachts Australia, who manufacture light weights cruiser / racers and are diametrically different yacht manufacturers). When Viking’s owner decided to go sailing around the world, his approach to searching for the perfect boat was methodical. He was looking for the perfect boat: a strong, seaworthy, versatile cruising yacht built to the highest standards and packed with all the features that would truly open the ocean to him, unlimited and able to cope in every situation. After setting his heart on the Southerly 135s, he then became involved throughout the building process and worked with the designer and manufacturer to further improve the specs to create what after 20 years of working in the cruising industry as a shipwright, skipper and specialised yacht broker, I can without hesitation call the most perfect 45’ blue-water cruising yacht I have ever seen. Why did he choose Southerly in the first place? The UK is well known for bringing to the world some of the best quality cruising yachts, and if the are expensive, it is for good reasons. If the French does the mass-produced boat well, the British focus on a smaller output, admittedly with a much higher price range, but use techniques that involve less machine and more hand-build techniques that are no longer profitable to large production lines, but result in yachts that are in every way of far better quality. From the lay of the glass to the finishing touches, everything is subject to the most stringent quality control. Everything from the choice of glass mat, gel coat, resin, timber, fittings hardware, machinery, even down to the tiniest hinge, is carefully chosen for strength and durability.  To further increase this already incredibly seaworthy design, the owner then went further with reinforcing the strength of the boat, particularly against collision and requested that the manufacturer use a solid (no core) Kevlar mat, which is virtually indestructible, for a large part of the bow section and added a watertight bulkhead.  The Westerly 135s is already a very comfortable, easy to sailboat that is built for a beautiful motion at seas while keeping a good turn of speed. To make the going even easier the owner  turned his attention to the sail handling and commissioned a number of extras, including a bow thruster and a furling main sail (both Genoa and Main sail were upgraded to Spectra for better performance and longevity). A primary power winch was added, a cockpit controlled anchor winch with chain counter and all the sheets run aft to the cockpit. The boat is effectively set up for solo-handling or short-handed passages. Next, comfort was further improved by adding air conditioning (14000 BUT) with an additional separate hot air ducted system throughout the boat, a washing machine, and a separate fully set-up work area complete with all the tools needed and of course dedicated storage for everything needed to repaired and maintain everything on board.  Regarding power, the boat is fully equipped to be self-sufficient with solar panels,  a 3.4kva generator (2016) and a full set of brand new batteries (2019). Down below the interior is practical and extremely well though-off. The huge aft cabin with private ensuite rivals much larger boats. It is a veritable owner's stateroom, private from the rest of the boat and comfortable to use in any weather. The raised salon is really what it is, a beautiful area to relax, dine or entertain with a panoramic view of the outside and with direct access to the cockpit. The keel box does not impede on the lower interior, which is divided into a bunk cabin to port with a settee to starboard and a V berth forward. The galley is substantial and well designed for safe use at sea. (Please read the accommodation and galley description on the next page for more details). The important demands for storage capacity for a blue-water cruising yacht are well met. If these are increasingly reduced in modern production boats that favour emphasising open spaces ill-suited to long term travels and live-aboard, the Southerly 135s provides an abundant storage capacity for both everyday items and stores which must be able to be organised and readily accessible, as well as heavier equipment, machinery, etc. There is ample space for everything in intelligently located storage areas. Going back to the general design, the flexibility of the retractable keel is an extraordinary asset for cruisers. Designed for use in the extreme tidal areas of the UK, the boat is perfectly stable on its bottom with the keel retracted and its two strong rudders acting as stabilisers. This feature is perfect for cruising amongst low-lying reefs or when wanting to tuck yourself in away from storm surge in adverse weather. With the keel fully retracted, the profile depth is only 2'9" at its deepest. You can beach the boat to clean her or to access tidal areas. The possibilities are limitless. When at sea, a simple push of a button will extend your draft to a high performance 9’9”. Of course you are also able to chose any other drafts in between depending where you are and wish to go and everything just at the touch of a button positioned next to the helm. To recap, the wonderful Southerly 135s is at home anywhere in the world, in the canals of France as much as in the South Pacific and strong enough to handle as well as equiped to explore the high latitudes and more challenging oceans in the world. She is powerful, sea kindly, reasonably fast and in every way the perfect cruising yacht. ‘Viking’ is a one owner boat that was not only the latest 135s built, she is also the best one thanks to her owner’s improvements both at the time of build and throughout his years of ownership. She has never been chartered, been kept in dry storage several months a year, presents in beautiful condition and is ready to go with you anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice. Please contact Anna at Nautilus Yacht Management for more info. We would be delighted to tell you more about this magnificent boat and to organise an inspection for you. The boat is currently at Vuda Marina, Fiji, which is about 20mn drive from Nadi International Airport.
