Adams 55 Ketch rigged Motor sailer. Launched in 1990 after a meticulous build by Orchard Yacht Construction, the Owners  have decided she has to go and have dropped the price to a fraction of what she is worth. This little ship is truly a go anywhere yacht. She is built of steel and you could eat out of the bilge. The systems applied at build time ensured she has remained as good as the day she was built. Powered by a 96 HP Kelvin, she will motor to New Zealand even if the wind refuses to assist. Fuel tankage is 3400l and she will motor at an average of 7.4 knots, RPM 759, using 5 litres an hour. Her maximum is 9 knots. The genset is an 8kva Kubota, she has a 3000W inverter, two 55W solarex panels and a 24v wind gen. The sail wardrobe is Main, genoa, MPS, yankee, staysail and mizzen, all in as new condition. There is a 10hp electric bow thruster, a 130 LPH water maker, 10 cft air compressor, and a large inventory of other good quality equipment. She comes with a Swift 3.1 tender and a 3.3 hp plus a 15hp outboard motor. This boat was in NSW survey until 2003 for 41 pax (1D) and 10 pax(2C) but she has never been chartered. This is an outstanding boat for long distance cruising to remote areas, living aboard coastal, or any number of other uses.  There is no doubt that the new price of $295 will have the phone ringing off the hook so call now. $295,000.00
