Bluewater 400 Raised Saloon

Now SOLD - We are proud to offer for sale this magnificent 1996 launched, Joe Adams designed and Australian Registered, Bluewater 400 Raised Saloon cruising yacht. Strongly built to exacting standards and superbly craftsman fitted in classic teak, the Bluewater 400 Raised Saloon combines exceptional space, light and comfort with outstanding sailing performance. Unique among the renowned Bluewater 400s, this yacht has circumnavigated the globe twice and is poised to do so again when the world's situation allows!

Her spacious and welcoming six-berth interior has three private cabins, two heads with hot & cold showers, a spacious main cabin with a generous saloon table and entertaining space together with a dedicated navigation centre with electronics and communications close at hand. Many opening ports provide excellent ventilation when required. The well-equipped galley features a Broadwater gas stove with oven and grill, micro-wave oven, 12v eutectic refrigeration, a gas BBQ on the stern rail and extensive storage capacity.

Her inventory is as comprehensive as you would expect of a twice world-girdling yacht. She has been set up to be safely and easily navigated and sailed short-handed in any conditions. The cutter rigged sail plan has a fully battened 3-reef mainsail, a furling genoa on the forestay and a hanked heavy weather staysail on the detachable inner forestay. The storm trysail has a separate luff track on the mast. A spinnaker and an asymmetrical Cruising MPS provide added sparkle when sailing downwind. Andersen winches including the electric mainsail halyard winch take care of the hard work. A boom brake is fitted ensuring safe control of the boom when gybing in heavy weather. The stainless-steel standing rigging was all replaced in 2019 so she is good to go!

The yacht is well powered by a well maintained and always reliable Yanmar 4JH2E 51 HP diesel engine driving an Autostream 3 blade feathering propeller. She has extensive storage and tankage along with large solar panels ensuring she can be self-sufficient for extended passages at sea. She is easily sailed short-handed in all conditions.

Safety at sea is paramount and this yacht is well found in that regard including a life raft and a custom built unsinkable outboard or paddle powered alloy dinghy that can be stowed aft in custom davits or inverted on the foredeck. 

There is so much more to see on this outstanding offshore cruising yacht. Perfect for coastal and offshore cruising or as a comfortable extended live-aboard, this is a yacht that serious cruisers should consider.
