Challenger 39 Pilothouse "Irish Mist"
$119,950 NOW REDUCED
The Challenger 39 by Nick Louis is a raised pilothouse (two helms) bluewater cruising yacht. “Irish Mist” (AMSA registered) has, under the current ownership of 16 years extensively cruised the Aus coast and international waters. “Irish Mist” presents in excellent, seamanlike condition and is comprehensively equipped for extended cruising. She is set up to be handled safely and easily by a crew of two. These vessels are noted for their vice-free efficiency under sail. A 42hp Volvo Penta with sail drive cruises the vessel economically at 6 knots. Below deck, the big all-around windows provide great light and visibility. The pilothouse/saloon cleverly incorporates the helm station, full-service galley and dinette/settees. There are fore and aft double cabins (6 berths including saloon berth ) and two bathrooms. Perhaps you do not aspire to cross oceans, it is however good to know that your yacht is well-built, fully-equipped and capable.
NOTE: Pilothouse yachts of this calibre are RARE. CALL PAUL 0418 385 866 to arrange an INSPECTION.
