1972 Ferro 48ft ketch now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.
Ferro 48ft ketch on a very sought after mooring in McCarr's creek Pittwater which is included as part of the sale and would make for the ideal backyard for long stays onboard.
Built in 1972 by the current one and only owner, she sailed the Pacific for over 10 years and made the most wonderful, safe and roomy liveaboard with a total of 7 berths and high headroom throughout the vessel.
The galvanised wire rigging is 12 years old and the wardrobe of 6 sails is about 20 years old.
The original Ford 4-cylinder diesel engine is still mounted inside the large engine room to a shaft and propellor but is not running, and unable to be heard. All batteries need replacing.
There are Raymarine electronics, and an excellent Ayres Wind Vane self-steering system.
A total of 4 anchors with ample chain and warp. Plenty of spare yacht and engine parts come with the boat.
She needs a bit of a clean-up and to get the engine ticking over again so she can become a passage maker again.
