Description: Adams 42 Blue Water, self suficient Liveaboard, blue water Encumbrance Check?
Joe Adams designed Adams 42 blue water cruiser, perfectly setup for long distance cruising and/or as a live aboard option. Presenting in immaculate condition and ready to sail. The list of upgrades and equipment is extensive and very relevant. This boat is truly a credit to her owner, very clean and tidy throughout and setup for short handed sailing in the cockpit with the primary winches moved further aft.
With a shallow draft for a vessel this size its the perfect cruiser at only 1.4 m, new main sail and great condition furling head sail.
At the moment, the yacht is located in Brisbane, QLD after finalising a 3 month sailing journey from Adelaide, SA, across the Great Australian Bight, Backstairs Passage, Bass Strait and Tasman Sea, sailing in all weather conditions, at sea for up to 3 weeks entirely self-sufficient. The boat behaved in a very forgiving and safe manner under any circumstances, with constant power generation through solar and wind and only requiring the diesel generator after 3-4 days under anchor on remote locations and cloudy days.
AUD $150,000 ONO
