Beautifully restored classics of the calibre of "Pacific Belle" don't come up for sale very often, so if you appreciate lovingly restored vessels, make an appointment to view the craftsmanship and attention to detail represented here.
Originally commissioned in the early 50's as a working vessel in FNQ and the Torres Straits, "Pacific Belle's" present owners have spared no expense in the loving restoration to a standard probably higher than her working class beginnings. She retains though her remarkable sea keeping abilities, especially in a following sea!
Quality Australian hardwoods were used in the original build and these timbers have stood the test of time, and the restoration interior timbers are of the same standard. Two full size cabins, master walk around queen, and aft double cabin - both with ensuites - convertable lounge in saloon, galley up midships with roll-out pantry, generous walk around decks, and easy stairs to flybridge... All make this a very comfortable family boat or let her off her lease and retrace her earlier travels up and down our coastline.
The boat has been equipped with the latest in electronics, 1800W-3000W inverters, completely rewired state-of-the-art switchboards and charging systems, genset, Navman chart plotter, auto pilot, bow thruster, radar, and the best in plumbing.
If a classic is your yearning, then this "Prettiest boat in the harbour" is for you. Low maintenance epoxied hull, economical Ford diesel, smart electrics and electronics, and a beautiful and tasteful interior fit-out says "Come sail on me!"
