Seller's Comment

New Boat has arrived so " Moondarra " needs a new home asap. PRICE REDUCED - 49' Steel Barrier Reef Motor Cruiser - Built as a trawler but never used. Full refit from 2009 - 2021. Must inspect to appreciate the value, quality and layout.

MV Moondarra is an ideal coastal and long range expedition vessel that would be very comfortable cruising to the Kimberleys.

She is a strong, comfortable, stable, low maintenance, long-range, steel cruising vessel. Galvanised from waterline up.

Other than the hull and engine (with only 1,300 hrs), everything used in the refit from 2009 until 2021 is new.

Moondarra is unique as in the past she was a triple screw vessel. She still maintains two auxiliary keels (same depth as main keel) and auxiliary stern tubes.

The previous owner has galvanised the vessel above the waterline which significantly reduces surface rust appearing. She is also protected by Wattyl 2 Pac primers, direct to metal, undercoat and Poly U 400 topcoat with Wattyl Sea Pro antifoul.

316 stainless steel has been used extensively throughout the refit.

Ceilings are fitted with low maintenance LamiPanel, the walls in the forward and master cabin are 17mm construction ply with doubled-sided Lami-Panel.

In 2019 Rogers and Lough fitted port and starboard winged, folding stabilisers which almost negate any sideways roll whilst underway or at anchor.

Other comfort and safety features include:
o a walk-around engine room;
o walk-around decks;
o queen island bed and ensuite in master cabin;
o spacious, well-appointed and practical galley;
o large back deck living area with flexible side cover options;
o expansive storage throughout; and
o Victron, Raymarine and ICOM instruments used extensively.

MV Moondarra is a comfortable, safe, long-range cruiser with low maintenance requirements.
