DESCRIPTION: Take advantage of this vessels current position in Queensland's South East before heading north into the tropics before the crowds realise the anchorages are the quietest they have been for many years. This is a beautiful "fully imported into Australia" 52 ft Seahorse Motor yacht that comes with many added extras. She is truly a great opportunity to acquire a very special and capable boat set up as a fully functional ocean going trawler at a fraction of the cost of a new vessel. From a design perspective, the 52's displacement hull features deep rounded bilges, an extremely pronounced keel and a sharp entry ensuring economical and comfortable passages. A bow thruster is a standard feature on the Seahorse 52, so manoeuvring back at the marina is made easy. The vessel features a racked stern and high, well-flared bow, which throws most water and spray away from the hull. Her long fore-deck takes up almost 30 per cent of her overall length and while there's no Portuguese bridge, the forward portion of the pilothouse is protected by tall, moulded deck lockers. The fly bridge of the Seahorse 52 is suitable for social gatherings. The mast that supports the antenna, radar dome and the likes is hinged, and it can be lowered to allow the Seahorse 52 can pass beneath anything higher than the fly bridge deflector screen. Stepping from the aft cockpit into the main saloon you find a very refined atmosphere created by using a beautiful mix of timber and granite bench-tops. Exceptional interior joinery is a trademark of Seahorse boats and solid teak and veneers are used extensively throughout. The entertainment unit is discreetly hidden behind the starboard settee and raised by the remote controller. She is a beautiful Long Range Cruiser that will take you in comfort to exotic ports of call while accommodating friends and family. Great for entertaining, cruising, and living aboard. She has seen fresh International Micron Extra 2 and Propspeed to all running gear in September 2019 as well as rudder bushes replaced in October 2019. Also the Gyro slew ring bushes and bearings were replaced at the same time. The stainless steel work and tooling on the Seahorse 52 is exceptionally good. Masterfully crafted with true passage-making ability, this could be the vessel to lend flight to your dreams! Enquire today!

This Seahorse 52 is a well equipped Pilothouse Trawler and is a well built and engineered vessel that boasts loads of storage, including a large lazarette storage area with a watertight bulkhead aft of the generator/watermaker room. Forward of the generator/watermaker room is the engine room which has almost six feet of stand up head room. The Blaine Seeley designed full keel, semi displacement, round chine hull provides maximum volume and exceptional performance in a wide range of conditions. Her racked stern, high, well flared bow and long foredeck provide a dry ride in choppy conditions. Powered by dependable twin Cummins engines, she is very fuel efficient at 7 to 9 knot speeds while being capable of achieving higher speeds when required.
We have sighted very comprehensive maintenance log and this is available for viewing aboard at time of inspection.
She is a good looking boat that deserves your full consideration, given her attractive pricing and that she is fully imported into Australia.
