Description: Bass Strait Cray Boat Encumbrance Check?
"Torba Star" was built in the 60's as a Bass Strait cray boat, later converted to a scallop trawler and then in the late 90's stripped and fitted out to serve as a small cargo vessel in the pacific. At varying intervals in the last 15 years it has made four trips to Vanuatu from Brisbane carrying cargo for a small private tourist development on a remote island. It is a serious blue water cruiser with a range of over 2500nm. In Vanuatu it was used initially as accommodation and then to ferry building materials from the nearest business centre out to the island.

With a hull of steel and an aluminium cabin it has a main engine (Detroit) and a standby on the side (Nissan) with I t's own shaft and prop. Main provides 240v power with a stand alone genset with a 3 cylinder Kubota. Fully fitted with electronics - 2 radars, 2 depth sounders, two GPS, radios etc. Etc. A fully comprehensive list can be provided on application. The boat returned to Brisbane in July 2014 and has been moored in the river ever since providing accommodation for a family of four. It is now surplus to requirements and is for sale for AUD 85K or near offer.
