To come across a yacht such as Pulsar is rare.
Although, like for almost every Hallberg-Rassy or Najad we have come across on our cruising routes, Malo Yachts owners fit the type of sailors who have a deep knowledge of ocean crafts, seek true adventure no matter the latitude, and take extremely good care of their boat. To own a yacht built with such perfection in every detail, and without regards to a price point, naturally inspires owners to continue showing the same respect over their years of ownership, which for Pulsar (ex Nada), is visible from the bottom of the keel to the very top of the mast, and everything in between. It is a joy and a honour to be representing such a vessel.
The best way to truly discover Pulsar for you, unless you can travel to meet with her owners in Fiji, will be to read the abundant details we have put together below with the invaluable help of the owners, and also to watch the hour-long video which will most surely leave you as much in awe of this yacht as we are.
If you are looking for a serious offshore cruising yacht capable of safely taking you to the furthest reaches of the world, this yacht will be hard to miss. Pulsar is a veritable little ship, yet graceful and fast, and equipped to sustain the most luxurious, modern demands for live-aboard cruisers wishing for all the comfort of home for weeks away from land. Power is in oversupply, the powerful 110HP Yanmar (2012), has low hours and present immaculately. The cabins present as new, with all the exquisite timber work intact, except for the companionway teak stairs which are solid teak and could do with a sand and varnish, although in this exposed area silky varnish doesn't last long. Her layout is ideal for a family, or to receive guests, with a private master cabin forward with ensuite head, which is completely separate from the shower. Two large aft cabin with great storage and a fresh, well ventilated interior share a second, very large head / shower area. The galley is well appointed and designed to be safely used in all weather. The cold storage is abundant for a boat of this size.
The extraordinary list of upgrades alone, which has covered every areas of Pulsar over the past few years would conservatively represent as much as the asking price, which was deliberately kept reasonable to match the current market.

A Word From The Owners:
"Pulsar is a 2005 Malo 46 Classic originally commissioned as Nada for Nigel Calder. She has been sailed and lived aboard for the last five years as a family home cruising the Pacific.
Pulsar has been through an extensive refit to inspect, replace, or refurbish almost everything inside and out on the boat.
In August 2023 in Fiji and November 2021 in Mexico she had independent surveys from different surveyors with zero recommendations for work needed due to her detailed maintenance and high degree of care.
Actively cruised, stocked with current systems, a huge supply of spares, cruising gear, and loads of storage space, Pulsar is ready to go today for your adventure.
We fell in love with Pulsar when we could easily see our family inside all around the large table playing games, space to entertain all our friends, and a safe, fast, capable cruiser that could take us anywhere. We've spent five years improving on Pulsar, making her more comfortable, easier to sail and maintain, and even stronger so that the limit would always be us, not Pulsar. " Graham and Karri, Fiji, September 2023.

Pulsar's electrical system:
The owners write: "Pulsar boasts a giant solar array, the ability to plug in anywhere in the world, a very large lithium bank, and a large inverter powering everything our family has ever wanted to run on board, even the teenagers! Even though Pulsar has a very high output alternator on the main engine and a generator, they are rarely needed because the large solar array keeps the batteries topped off in all but the cloudiest weeks. The custom breaker/switch panels are simply amazing and provide fine grained control over every system and easy access to the backsides for maintenance. "
