Description: Sunbird Motor Sailer Ideal low cost weekender
Here's a gorgeous highly regarded Sunbird 25, built in Victoria and substantially upgraded by the current, capable owner. Ideal as a trailer sailor or use as a yacht from a marina or a powerboat with its strong late model 21hp Nanni diesel. This is a surprisingly roomy vessel with excellent headroom throughout and the ability to sleep 4 to 6 but really an excellent weekender for 2 with a spacious cockpit, double bed forward and all the comforts. Steering is from inside a comfortable wheelhouse with a hatch above to view the sails and the upstairs galley opposite with great vision and loads of storage.
Some of the many features are diesel ducted heating, Simrad plotter and autopilot, large 12 volt fridge/freezer, a gas stove with a grill, electric toilet with privacy curtain, stereo, VHF, full camper covers around the cockpit hardtop etc etc.
These vessels feature a shoal draft keel with the lead ballast moulded into the hull giving excellent stability and a draft of only 1' 8" allowing access into many areas other yachts are unable to get to.
This vessel has cruised the Murray, the Gippsland Lakes, Flinders Island, Macquarie Harbour and the Gordon River and is a well proven. Comfortable cruiser.
BOAT ONLY PRICE IS $39,500. The trailer is available for an extra $10,000. It's a purpose built Premier tandem axle fitted with electric override hydraulic brakes with a remote controlled electric trailer winch, boarding ladder and extension draw bar.
A look at the extensive inventory below will show you just how much this boat has to offer and the photos should indicate its excellent condition.
