Bay of Islands


A beautiful offshore sailing boat from the design board of the famous Rob Perry, renown for strong reliable offshore cruising yachts. This boat has been freshly polished with new varnish on the capping rail. She sailed from Fiji to New Zealand and is now on the market!
Her hull has deep rocker to carve through the ocean swell, and the 1.9m draft makes for good upwind performance, without effecting cruising in shallow anchorages. 

Some great offshore features of this boat include the safe centre cockpit, lee cloths, stainless holders for fuel & fenders. There is a fantastic solar arch with davits, outboard winch and boarding ladder incorporated. The Raymarine wind depth and speed instruments have been updated.

New to the boat in 2000, the John Deere engine is strong and powerful, with generous access through double doors. In 2017 the bow thruster was installed, making this boat a breeze to manoeuvre without much prop walk. 

The 2-cabin layout features a lovely aft bed, one of the benefits of centre cockpit layout. The cabins are nice and light thanks to numerous portholes and light prisms. Both cabins have their own ensuite.
There is a great galley for cooking on passage, super comfortable saloon and a lot of storage.

Some more great features include:
Brand new bimny
Brand new clears for the hard top dodger
Rigging replaced 2018
Motor mounts new in 2021

Antifouled September 2022

This boat presents an excellent opportunity to snap up an extremely capable boat for a bargain price. With a few jobs to be done to get her bluewater ready, this boat is priced accordingly. Get in touch today for a full Nov 22 Survey + more.
