Clean lines and unmistakable elegance characterise the Bluewater 420 with Raised Saloon. The design is founded on the union of strength and performance with a long water line, fine bow, wide stern, and solid glass hull.
Power and integrity are demonstrated by the sturdy skeg hung rudder and the integral fibreglass keel, which encases four and a half tonnes of lead. The voluminous bilge provides the generous fuel and water tankage that you need in an ocean cruising yacht.
The Bluewater 420 Raised Saloon is designed to be sailed shorthanded, which allows for ultimate safety, agility and speed. All of the control lines return to the safety of the large cockpit and are powered by generously sized winches.
The stability and ease of control of the Bluewater 420 Raised Saloon make it perfect for the couple who wants to sail alone, while the spaciousness of the yacht leaves ample room to share a voyage with guests.
Wide sidedecks with bulwarks and handholds provide maximum safety and ease of movement on deck. The boarding platform in the transom contains a fold-down ladder for swimming and a convenient freshwater shower. Up forward, an electric windlass takes the hassle out of anchoring. Raising and lowering the mainsail is simple enough for even inexperienced sailors.
When the wind doesn't blow, turn on the auxiliary engine, which is an economical 50 horsepower four-cylinder diesel, for a propulsion speed of seven to eight knots.
While efficiency is the key to an excellent interior layout, elegance and beauty are also vital for the optimal sailing experience.
The interior architecture, which is available in cherry or beech joinery, is comfortable and spacious. It features a four-metre beam and headroom of 1.98 metres in the main saloon.
The owner's double cabin includes abundant storage space and an optional ensuite in the bow. The aft cabins are double berth size with locker space and an adjoining head for guests with dual access, depending on your chosen layout. The forward and rear bunks are long enough to stretch out and wide enough for a couple to enjoy.
