Nightshift is ready to go having recently had an excellent survey.
This aluminium long distance sailing yacht was built in 1984 by Dewar Marine in Cape Town to a Jim Dewar design. Purchased by two brothers and used as a live aboard in South Africa, she was eventually sailed back to the Bristol via Madagasgar and Ibiza .
The present owner purchased her in 2003 and brought her ashore where she underwent a complete re build and renovation which took up the next eleven years.
During this period the interior was completely stripped out and had sprayed on insulation applied throughout. All interior joinery was replaced in Marine ply veneered and edged with ash. The finished result is a bright comfortable interior of the highest quality.
The hull has recently been grit blasted and fresh primer and antifouling applied. Nightshift is in good order and ready to go.
The original BMW engine has been replaced with a new Vetus 42hp diesel with less than 90 hrs use to date. The first service was recently carried out on this engine.
There has been a complete re fit of instruments including Raymarine log/depth tri data, Chart plotter, wind speed direction, auto pilot, Furuno radar, icom VHf with DSC.
Other recent improvements include a bow thruster, a powered windlass, wind turbine and hydraulic steering. There is a Wind Pilot steering system fitted on the transom, all parts are available to commission this system. The owner has also added an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB).
She was surveyed in 2012. Proof of VAT paid in the EU is available.
The accommodation comprises a total of seven berths in three cabins. There is a double in the fore cabin, a three quarter berth in the port side aft cabin, a single in the starboard side quarter berth and two saloon berths. The saloon has a table with settee berths around it.
The separate heads compartment is fitted with a Vetus marine toilet, a wash basin and shower. A holding tank is fitted with a macerator pump.
