Description: Fastback 43 Custom built by John Gross
Ramjet is a custom Fastback 43 built and owned by John Gross who sailed throughout the pacific during his 14 years of possession. 12 years after selling his pride and joy, John's son purchased Ramjet and has been the custodian for the past 7. The vessel has been completely refurbished including hull stripped back, new mast and rigging plus all new electronics. Recently back from North Queensland Ramjet is now available to purchase and is presented in immaculate condition. A slightly narrower design than the standard 43, John Gross built this cat for speed as well as comfort. A striking and functional design she is set up for long range cruising in absolute comfort & style. The saloon is light and airy with large opening windows that double as quick access to the forward deck and there is fresh airflow all the way through the vessel. Ramjet has comfortable sleeping for 7 + adults and a very well appointed galley that wants for nothing. Completely self sufficient, Ramjet is harnessing energy from 720Watts of solar, 800AH batteries, a generator and inverter; plus there is a 60L/hr a water maker and catchment points for fresh water to run directly into tanks. You may never need to stay in a marina berth again!
