Broker's Comments

Designed by Steve Dashew and build by the highly respected Salthouse team in NZ to a very high standard, this beautiful Dashew 61 fast cruising yacht was intended to be the first of a production run, however the cost of building to such a high spec proved too much for a production boat and with the yard unwilling to compromise on quality the project came to an end. Very well maintained and with many spare parts and tools this ocean greyhound is absolutely ready to go. A real sailors yacht ! Someone is going to get a great deal !
A major refit was performed in 2009 at Auckland, NZ. A new higher output Yanmar 4JH4HTE turbo diesel was installed among many other items. All major systems were overhauled. New running rigging was put in place with new sails. A new Northern Lights 8KVA genset has been installed (now with a low ~350 hours). The mast has been pulled inspected and overhauled the standing rigging (replaced all wire and overhauled fittings) in 2015. Also pulled and inspected her chain plates and replaced all bolts at that time. The Max Prop was pulled and sent back to PYI in the U.S. for overhaul, truing, etc. in 2015. The Spectra water maker was overhauled in 2018 including all “O” rings and membranes. A new Tides Marine shaft gland was installed in 2018. The main engine raw water pump was overhauled in 2018. New through hull fitting and sea cock installed in aft head 2018. The high output alternator was rebuilt in fall 2017. Four new 200 a/h gel house batteries were installed in 2018. A new gel electronics back up battery was installed in 2018. A new smart Victron solar panel regulator was installed in 2018.
