Description: Broadwater Craft 56 Passage Maker Custom
Just Listed in a class of her own, 1985 Broadwater 56 Passage Maker is now on the market.

The interior was designed for the perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality, the practical interior invites perfect comfortable living at sea.

Credit to her past and current owner, he has lived on and maintained Seabiscuit IV for five years. He has adoringly kept her modern by upgrading systems, and electrical devices while keeping her authentic charm.

Seabiscuit IV was designed by Robert Beebe a renowned naval architect who designed over 150 vessels one of which was the Passage Maker 56, the original Seabiscuit.

Built in 1985 in Ballina NSW, Seabiscuit IV construction took 36months, 18 months to procure the timber and 18 months to build. At a then cost of $1 million, Seabiscuit IV was built to survey and worked for many years in Sydney harbour as a charter boat and was honoured to be the Sydney to Hobart yacht race start boat. Since her charter boat days, she has been privately owned travelling the ocean throughout Asia Pacific regions.

The design of the Passage Maker vessels was so successful that he wrote a book based on it called, Voyaging Under Power.

Engine
* The heart of this vessel is the original British built Gardner 6LX diesel engine which is, still currently the second most efficient diesel engine ever built. The Gardner 6LX is known for its extreme reliability and longevity. Most components bolted to this motor have been replaced or reconditioned for example water pump, and pulley systems. A modified system has been engineered for the twin alternators 12V and 24V so that regular automotive alternators can be used for ease of replacement.
