The first piece of film was taken in March 2005 during my crossing from NZ to Chile. We encountered several 'storms' and laid abeam on three occasions for a few hours each time. 'Cape Petrel' drifts with her stern quarter to the sea in a most comfortable manner, so much so it is easy to just relax while the worst of the weather we encountered passed.
The second video was taken here in Geraldton WA two months or so ago
Her extensive refit was completed in Cebu (Philippines) and now looks a picture. 'Cape Petrel' must be seen to be appreciated she is steel and was launched 2003 and has just (2016) finished a major refit. My reason for selling her is health. I launched her and refitted her to cruise the world but my dream ended in the Perth hospital. She has all her fittings including all her 22 port holes and seven windows are mounted on stainless steel before being welded to the hull thus eliminating rust arias. Her hull steel is almost as new inside and out. The refit included main engine and all her electronics. Plus genoa Harkin furler staysail etc etc. This vessel is a one off and if you wish to travel this planet in safety and comfort 'Cape Petrel' will take you as she has taken me.
If a world cruiser is your dream do your self a favour and see this one before you buy. You'll regret it if you see her after.
My little boy started kindy yesterday (07/08/2017). Some one is going to get a strong safe practically fully renewed 'Roberts' cheap.
'Cape Petrel' is fitted with a 'Morso; solid fuel (wood) heater midships. I was frozen in three times in the Chilean channels during the winter of 2010 with 100mm of snow on the deck but were never cold.
