An opportunity ~ Bastion offered for sale!

  One of the finest vessels we have built. Here's why:

“Bastion” W60 - hull 1, incorporates all the important elements of motor vessel design we have learned during more than 80 years and extending over 150 designs - vessels that have given many millions of miles service. These include:

Hull form and propulsive efficiency maximised for safe and economical voyaging.

Structural hull strength, designed to Lloyds Rules and fabricated at the highest standard have resulted in a perfectly fair vessel.

Like all our Trawler Yachts and Expedition Vessels her notation is “Unrestricted Ocean Service”.

Engineering and systems design have all been detailed and completed at the highest yacht standard using robust commercial equipment. The engine room is a delight, spacious, offering full headroom and set out for easy access to all machinery and systems. In keeping with our philosophy, operation of this vessel is very simple. 

Her accommodation spaces have been maximised for comfortable full time cruising: from her spacious uncluttered wheelhouse, generous saloon and practical well arranged galley. The staterooms are laid out to give good separation for owner, guests and crew with full ensuite amenities.

Only the finest Burmese Teak has been used for her furniture, hand made by craftsmen in our own joinery shop.

Since delivering “Bastion” in 2012 she has clocked up over 900 hours of service, the majority in ocean passages. Her maintenance schedule has been kept up to date by her fastidious owner with all service records and receipts available. Each year has seen the vessel improved and equipment updated, no expense spared - in readiness for departure at short notice.

“Bastion” is ready to leave today for Ports unknown. Her trans-Pacific range, New Zealand to California, means  her owner can have absolute confidence to cruise any destination including the high latitudes.

She has been described by one American naval architect as being “as good as it gets…..”

This is an opportunity to acquire a first class vessel without the 17 month wait for delivery from the yard and following “break in” period.

Her owner is considering a new project and has asked us to promote “Bastion” on an “expressions of interest” basis.

As is our custom, we will stand by this vessel for any new owner.

“Bastion” is cruising New Zealand waters this southern summer and Tropics next winter.
