Description: Westcat Explorer 40 Custom built to the highest standards
Ocean going cat with commercial possibilities or perfect family cruiser fitted with the best of everything. Westcat were known for their sea rescue vessels which were designed to operate at sea in adverse conditions. This is the larger version, built to the current owners specifications, to be both luxurious and seaworthy, sensibly powered, fully equipped, economical and with lots of style.
Engines and generator have just been serviced, slipped, antifouled and polished in November 2021 and with only 300 hours usage on the 2014 model D6 Volvos this is a great opportunity to purchase a fully fitted vessel ready to go with a cruising range of up to 400 nautical miles.
Giving you the best of both worlds, Indian Coast is in In current 2C commercial charter survey for 2 plus 12 if required but has been lightly used. With its vast aft deck, game poles, variety of fridge/freezers and the best late model electronics there are serious fishing options without sacrificing any comfort. The generator, watermaker, bowthruster, joystick, enclosed flybridge, cockpit controls all help to make this a vessel easy to operate and one you should consider.
