We are pleased to offer for sale this 70ft X 12’6 widebeam launch, designed and built to a high, bespoke specification in 2006 with the completion of the professional fit-out over two years. Very well maintained and an ideal constant cruiser or floating home
Ocho’s charm and quality is clear to see and appreciate. Lovingly maintained by the present owners since 2014, she has been used as a live-aboard and for high-end day charters. The number of windows create the light-filled 20ft saloon (lined with cherry wood and mahogany), a fully equipped galley, two large bedrooms and a spacious modern full bathroom.
Home comforts and warmth are provided by a Kabola central heating unit with ‘cottage style’ radiators, including a heated towel rail.
This vessel is powered by a Vetus 114hp 4.5 litre diesel engine. Electrical power comes from the built-in 16kVA Vetus Generator, shore line, or via the 4kW Mastervolt inverter/charger to a six “Rolls” 12 volt battery bank. There is also a 2.5kW Victron inverter as spare. There are walk-on solar panels along the length of the cabin roof to provide a trickle charge and all external deck surfaces have ‘tek-dek’ laid on them. An added safety feature is an all-round stainless steel handrail on brass upstands.
Once cruising, boat handling is made easy with Vetus hydraulic helm, Vetus 95kg hydraulic bow thruster and Holland Marine 24volt stern jets.
Cabin side paintwork has been expertly replaced with ten year vinyl which, unlike paint, flexes with temperature changes. Last out of water in October 2019, the hull received a two-part epoxy coating and 12 new anodes.
BUISNESS OPPURTUNITY: This gorgeous vessel could also be used for river cruises, serving tea and scones while people enjoy a peaceful river view!
