We have listed this magnificent & much loved Africat 420. She is a stunning and very functional vessel with many updates over recent years including new Yanmar 370HP engines in 2018, with approx 500 hours running time now showing. High quality flybridge clears, covers & cockpit enclosure covers were also new in 2021 & both engines have been serviced in April 2022. Her hull has been completely stripped back with 3 coats of high build epoxy primer; plus 4 coats of antifoul applied in mid 2021; PLUS new cutlass bearings and rudder shaft seals completed at the same time. The Africat 420 is a massive 6.7M wide providing for a very spacious vessel, which is also amazingly stable at anchor or underway and performs wonderfully in all conditions. Her flybridge is spacious and made to enjoy the views with comfortable seating aft and forward under a huge hardtop with new crisp, white covers & clears. There is ample storage up on this deck plus a new freezer, sink, shower and moulded table tops for laying out platters or resting your glass whilst entertaining. The helm position is centre forward and allows for excellent vision when underway. The Raymarine electronics package is impressive and there are cameras to the helm to ensure the safety of guests on the below aft deck and cockpit. A wide, moulded staircase with inbuilt blue night lighting takes you below to the main cockpit area which hosts a large table and seating to port & starboard under complete cover away from the elements. Stepping aft from here is a huge outdoor area with perfectly placed stainless rails to fish, lounge or swim from; and provides access to the removable davits to lower the tender effortlessly into water. This outdoor area is covered in quality deck armour that also leads up and around to the wide, railed, walk around decks on each side. Once inside the saloon there is an immediate feeling of luxury, comfort and space. To starboard is a very comprehensive galley with corian counter tops fitted in only 2018. The galley wants for nothing and has excellent storage and lovely subtleties such as the microwave in behind black perspex sheeting. To port is lovely high bench space atop the two Dometic fridges, plus the onboard washing machine which is perfectly recessed away to be secure at travel. Ahead of here is a huge dining area with a choice of two different sized tables, and an electronics nook for monitoring all items when at rest; or pick up the vessel's remote which is stored here and steer Panthera from wherever you please. Amidships of the saloon on each side are moulded steps to take you through to the vessel's accommodation. On starboard is the captain's quarters which runs the length of the hull, where there is a very comfortable double bed aft with hanging cupboards, draws, and further storage leading forward to the luxurious head and ensuite. This is a very private and luxurious area reserved for the skipper and their partner. On port there are two more en-suited cabins, making for 3 heads in total and very comfortable accommodation for six. Please read below for further details. If you are in the market for an amazing cruising, or live aboard vessel then it would be difficult to look past this spacious, well cared for and beautifully designed Africat 420. Please contact us to make a time to inspect 'Panthera'.
