I’m selling my 46’ cruising/live aboard sailboat after a ten year affair. She needs some work due to Irma, though she stayed dry inside, and remains one of the best built boats ever. The main reason I’m selling her is that I’ve bought a 60 foot schooner. Diana is a Hartmann-Palmer 46, also known as a Seamaster 46, Built by Lien Hwa in Taiwan, the builder of the Ted Hood Little Harbors. She is built just like a Little Harbor, except designed by Robert Perry. This is an exceptionally strong, seaworthy and comfortable vessel, loaded with gear. The work needed is cosmetic and in no way affects the integrity of this quality built vessel. She is currently seaworthy and sailing. All the systems are in working order, like the engine, rigging, sails, electronics, autopilot, plumbing, solar, etc.,etc. Her hull and deck are bulletproof. She sails and motors beautifully. She is a large 46 footer with inside and outside steering. She has a brand new bottom job and is on a mooring in St John. This boat will be a great deal for the right person.
Some of the gear includes:
Perkins 4-236 diesel, runs great
Inside and outside steering (hydraulic) with Raymarine autopilot
6 golf cart batteries, 400 watt solar on stainless arch, Blue Sky controller
Custom solar hot water system, it's great, ask me and I'd love to tell you all about it
Adler Barbour 12v refrigeration
Raymarine sailing instruments, Garmin chartplotter
Electric windlass with new motor, 66 lb claw anchor, 150' 3/8 chain, spare anchors, etc.
Roller furling genoa and main, Both sails in very good condition, oversize rigging in good condition
Large comfortable aft cabin, two heads, one new Jabsco electric head
Now the work needed. She survived Irma in the water, and had no water intrusion, but had some on deck damage, like pulpits, rubrail, etc. I have fixed much of it, but there is still some work to do. There are a few non structural scratches and small gouges on the topside (eventually could use topside painting). And, the beautiful ash and teak interior has been somewhat neglected over the last 10 years and could use some refinishing. However, this boat has done a lot of sailing, and is ready to live aboard and cruise right now, do the work at your leisure (maybe the wrong word). Anyway, it's a tough decision to sell, because I love her and know I can't get what she's really worth. And now I’m on my 60' schooner, and one boat is more than enough. Again, this is a great deal for the right person. Thanks for looking, Ken
