Brief description:
A unique opportunity to acquire a hard-to-come-by Nauticat 33 Motorsailer in very good condition. It is fully equipped with all the amenities for long stays at sea. Powered by a very economical Ford Lehman 90HP diesel engine, 2 separate fuel tanks for a total range of 500n/m. Fresh Water capacity of 500Ltrs.
Long list of onboard and Navigational equipment below. Sleeps 6 adults comfortably inside. Two driving positions. New Bow thruster, Re-wiring, Replacement of Hull-through fittings, hoses, 2023. No expense spared.

Built in 1983, this Nauticat has been meticulously looked after and has been shown a lot of love and care. Remarkably spacious and comfortable for a cruiser of her size, she is ketch rigged and in excellent condition.
The interior live aboard layout provides two very comfortable double cabins with larger than normal berths, a light and open galley and a pilothouse with clear all round visibility has a table to seat six which turns into a third, very large bed for two adults, and a comfortable inside steering position.
A generous toilet compartment and large separate shower adds to the comfort on board.
The live aboard layout provides both comfort and storage, whether for extended periods aboard or for cruising.
Full instrumentation both in the cockpit and the inside steering position provides a choice of steering positions.
Furling Genoa and fully battened main with lazy jacks facilitate sail handling.
This sturdy and secure, motorsailer appeals to those who value a big engine that takes the effort out of fighting a headwind and the sheltered wheelhouse that offers safe protection.

No time wasters, serious enquiries only.

Boat under flag of Malta.
