Rodger Martin 50 - Bushranger - $279,000

'BUSHRANGER' a 1993 Rodger Martin 50 is now exclusively for sale with YOTI in Mooloolaba, Queensland.

This yacht is derived from Mike Plants entry in the 1987 BOC Single handed Round the World Challenger, in which he won Class 2.

The designer made some minor modifications to create the Martin 50, perfectly suited for fast shorthanded coastal and blue water passages, in absolute style and comfort. She has a Warwick Collins Tandem Keel, which keeps her draft to a very respectable 2 mtrs, whilst retaining her sailing performance. The vessel can even take about 800 litres of water ballast per side, by lowering a scoop whilst sailing to enhance her upwind performance!

The yacht is beautifully constructed of cedar strip planking and epoxy glass and her the decks and cockpit are epoxy glassed marine plywood with teak laid over. The interior ceiling is finished with laminated Kauri beams, Australian cedar sprung deck head and mahogany trim throughout. Together with her leather upholstery this what a yacht's interior should look like.

The saloon is impressive, with good natural lighting and comfortable seating around a large dining table. The navigation station is centrally located as you come down the companionway. The galley has centrally mounted sinks (as they should be on monohulls) with further counter tops, stove & oven and large fridges and freezer to starboard.

The owner's stateroom is forward and is well lit and ventilated. We love the rose white bulkheads contrasted by the cedar hull construction and timber ceilings. There is a double berth to port, small seat, vanity and lots of storage cupboards and large ensuite head with shower.

The guest cabin is in the port quarter, with double berth and ensuite head with shower. To starboard, aft of the galley is a machine room, with the vessels systems, generator, as well as access to her steering quadrant. The main engine is located centrally in the vessel, below the nav station.

Back on deck you will appreciate the safe cockpit with large dodger (brand new), sugar scoop transom for easy boarding, davits for tender, "Leisurefurl" in-boom furling mainsail and "Profurl" furlers for both headsails.

Bushranger is a unique yacht with impressive design pedigree and beautifully crafted interior. She was antifouled in May 18 and now ready for inspection in Mooloolaba.
