Description: Precision 17
SOLD

The Precision 17 is the quintessential West Australian boat, an icon of sucess and the flagship of the WA built production vessels of her era and to be honest there hasn't been anything like it since. Built with passion by local WA shipwrights for the who's who of Perth and designed with WA style of boating in mind.

At Wright Marine Management, we are pleased to offer such a lovingly cared for and period correct example of this iconic model, especially one that has only had 2 owners from new!

Featuring what is probablly the biggest aft cockpit you'll find on a 17m/56ft boat that isn't a cray boat, hull shape designed to tackle WA's relentless SW'erly breezes with ease, generous acommodation sleeping 8 in 3 cabins thanks to 2x large double cabins plus the uniquely West Australian quad bunks in the fwd cabin ensure these boats are still in high demand today. You would be hard pressed to find another brand of boat that is as large in volume and such great value for money.

"Portofino" was originally built to survey for the America's Cup Defense held off Fremantle in 1987 and during that time played the role of one of the main spectator craft in that iconic era that shaped Fremantle and really put WA on the map globally - she's still sporting the orignial retractable chart table in the saloon!

After a short stint in survey around the time of the Americas Cup Defence, she has carried out private duties for the current owners since the late 80's. The current owners have diligently kept vessel logbooks and maintence records since 1992 which help provide an in depth look into how lovingly cared for this vessel is. The largely original interior is in great condition, for example the suede lounges in the saloon have been covered there entire life and once uncovered present "like new", the nuetral toned deep pile carpets are still in great condition and soft underfoot with minimal signs of wear. Credit must also be given to the original owners who spec'd the boat with high end materials in largely nuetral tones which would allow for relatively easy modernisation should you wish to do so.

Powered by a pair of big V12 MAN diesels that have been downrated to 700hp. We are told this model is capable of in excess of 1000hp meaning they are somewhat understressed at only 700hp. Serviced in April 2017, they start on the button every time and run very quietly compared to the 2 stroke GM/Detroit diesels so often found in vessels of this era. Even with the engines derated, she still has a sprint speed of 24knots and an effortless cruise of 17-18knots.

Over the years she's been tastefully updated with the additon of more modern electronics such as Furuno Navnet GPS/Chart/Radar unit, Raymarine windmeter, autopilot, smart battery chargers, inverters, fully automatic SeaRecovery reverse osmosis water maker, 2x vacuflush toilets and holding tanks, remote spotlight, airconditioning, amazingly comfortable Navigator helm chairs, red/white LED lighting over the Flybridge helm for night voyages, electronics controls to both upper and lower helms however the owners did choose to leave a set of manual cable controls at the lower helm for added redundancy.

It's not every day you come across such a beautiful and such an lovingly cared for example of a Precision 17, especially in such original condition. Inspection really is a must!
