Comments: A very well set up multi-fishery vessel that has operated in Bass Strait since its launching in proven catcher. During the past 12 months the vessel has undergone a major refit – costing in excess of $250,000.
The following is what owner has undertaken / installed since early 2021:
* New main engine
* ZF gearbox
* auxiliary engine package
* refrigeration system for brine tanks
* rewired wheelhouse and all new led lighting though out
* new electronics including radar/ sat compass/ sat phone/ cel fi phone booster/ new dc computer and 3 new screens/ boat cameras/ elog's,
* re fiberglass decks,
* new keel cooling on main and aux engines,
* hyd motor on power pack, bow roller,
* rams for hyd spreaders,
* dc E/R fans, fridge and TV and probably more that I have missed.
Owner will also consider selling vessel without shark spool and nets.
This vessel would make an ideal island trader or liveaboard coastal cruiser with good accommodation. Small boat considered as a trade.
Price: $225,000 + GST
