HERRESHOFF 60′ KATCH ZAFFIRA fibreglass hull .build by
ORAM shipyard in New Zealand
Hello fellow mariners,
the company I work for is moving me to Melbourne and my beloved boat is on the hard in Darwin where I have started refit.
I won’t have the time to complete
the works and I am reluctantly considering selling her.
The hull is ready to be repainted above and below water line and I will attach a complete list of jobs to be done, from the critical to the secondary if required .
Asking price, where is and how she is, will be 100.000 A$ fixed.
Estimated cost of refit materials is approx 10.000 A$ which will give you a well and truly value of 250.000 A$ unique vessel

The price obviously reflect the fact that she needs to finish her refit
I have started last week and I have estimated that on my own I could complete all works in a couple of months doing everything myself.
She was built for long passages and heavy weather. She is solid and a safe vessel.
A bit of TLC will see her in top condition again
Cost of boat storage in Darwin is 1000 A$ per months
