HUGE INVESTMENT POTENTIAL! READY TO MOVE IN NOW OR REFIT FOR LUXURY AFLOAT PRIVATE OR COMMERCIAL RESIDENCE.

The only available houseboat for sale in Fiji, this vessel represents a rare opportunity to secure a solid and very lucrative investment in one of the most sought-after tourist destination in the world. Refitted in 2010, the vessel is ready to use, but could be refitted for private or commercial luxury accommodation, which is in high demand in Fiji.

In fact, the charter demand in Fiji is at an all-time high and keeps growing each year. To add extra incentive to non-resident and residents alike charter vessel owners, the government recently dropped the charter income tax dramatically from 24% to only 9%.

Equipped with two powerful outboard engines, this vessel regularly cruises from her permanent (cyclone proof) storage berth at Viti Levu (the delightful Vuda Marina) to Musket Cove at Malolo Lailai with her pristine blue lagoons, easy access to the world-famous surf spots such as Cloud Break, Namotu and Tavarua, but can also explore further afield and be anchored in a more secluded spot. With over 300 islands to chose from, there are plenty of idyllic lagoons and anchorages to choose from. The vessel can remain for long periods of time away from marinas thanks to her solar power supply and 2000L of water!

With its huge sheltered flybridge for entertaining or relaxing, aft and forward cockpits, easy to board transom, and equipped with a strong lifting arm for its 12' aluminium dinghy, this massive power catamaran (houseboat type) offers unlimited potential. Inside, the boat is designed around a large lounge and dining room, open plan kitchen and three double bedrooms, two of which open directly over the forward cockpit.

'Wai Tui' was photographed at Musket Cove (September 14th 2018) but will be moved to permanent berth at Vuda Marina by the end of September for easy access from international airport..

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
The vessel is a Jabaru design catamaran constructed in kitset form by Jabaru in Australia, one of several dozen vessels produced by them in fibreglass from female moulds. The hulls, decks and structural components were then shipped to Fiji for final assembly first launching being approx 1990.

The hulls are solid fibreglass and were taken back to the bare glass and given 3 coats of epoxy coating before launching after a major refit in July 2010. The entire inside of the boat was refitted to give a 3 double stateroom layout with separate bathroom and combined kitchen-dining-lounge layout on the main deck with a full length fly-bridge above with full canopy cover and clear screen protection of the helm position and controls.

The boat can be lifted out by Travel Lift and placed on to the hard at Vuda Marina for maintenance and anti fouling. The most recent lift out was in May 2017 and 3 coats of anti foul applied, motor servicing and other general maintenance.

Structurally and mechanically sound, anti fouled and engines serviced each year, the boat nevertheless will need some cosmetic work to the following areas:

-Flybridge, interior and aft cockpit floor needs repainting. (The owner is replacing the forward cockpit floor before leaving at the end of September).

-Rubbing strip on starboard side needs repairs or replacing
