Hunter 45DS - Sol Cazador

Price: AUD $289,000

'SOL CAZADOR', a 2008 Hunter 45DS, is now proudly and exclusively for sale with team YOTI Queensland.

This very well-presented yacht is your ticket to cruise the Australian Coast and Pacific in style or use her AMSA commercial registration for day charters. Continuously owned and operated by her original owners, Sol Cazador was based in Sydney before relocating to Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast to offer high-end day charters.

Starting on deck, the unobstructed access from the dock or tender is fabulous. The boat has a walk-through transom and twin steering wheels, opening to the large, safe cockpit with ample seating. The stainless-steel Targa bar over the cockpit keeps the mainsheet and traveller above the bimini and out of harm's way. It also allows complete cockpit sun protection, with the bimini stretching from the sprayhood to the transom.

Hunter yachts have the innovative B & R rig, with swept-back spreaders and no backstay.
Her in-mast furling mainsail, self-tailing winches, genoa furler, and line stowage help keep the cockpit clear and safe and allow these vessels to be sailed shorthanded. Her hull is a mix of solid laminate and balsa core, with Kevlar reinforcement, a structural grid, and bulkheads to ensure structural strength and integrity.

The Deck Saloon offers an elegant, highly comfortable living space with panoramic views and excellent headroom. It also brings light and ventilation into the boat's interior. The swing-out companionway doors allow easy access to the interior, with her comfortable saloon settees and a large high-gloss table to comfortably accommodate a large crew.

To port is the well-planned and spacious galley with fridge, freezer, and 3-burner gas stove/ oven. To starboard is the extensive chartable, and the main head with enclosed shower and dual access doors to the master cabin and saloon. This vessel has a two-cabin layout, with the main cabin aft occupying the entire width of the vessel. It features a centrally mounted queen berth, seat, hanging lockers, and deep drawers for extended cruising.

The welcoming guest cabin forward features a double Pullman berth to port, a washbasin & vanity, plenty of storage, and a head with shower. Additionally, the saloon table can be lowered to form two additional berths.

This vessel is powered by a 75HP Yanmar engine with modest hours. It has a Sleipner 4HP bow thruster, a big 2.7Kva Inverter, a Bose sound system, and a near-new tender with an outboard motor. Please refer to the online inventory for full details.

'Sol Cazador' has just been antifouled, including Propspeed, and polished in late February 2024, and she is ready for her next adventure.

Please get in touch with Robert for further details on this impressive, well-presented example of a Hunter Deck Saloon 45 and to arrange an inspection at Sanctuary Cove Marina, Gold Coast, Queensland.
