RECLUSE is a comfortable cruiser or live aboard with gear for Africa. Service the liferaft and she’s good to go offshore in Cat 1. She has 2 cabins forward, including a good size double owner’s cabin with a nice head and shower area. The midships galley provides a nice working area for the cook. The pilothouse saloon with inside helm provides great visibility for the skipper, allowing the crew to stay warm and dry when the weathers turns nasty. When the sun’s out, the aft cockpit area with bimini is the place to be. Wheel steering with both Fleming windvane and autopilot gives the skipper lots of choices. The cutter rig is strong and secure with a new furling genoa and staysail (2014), storm sails and MPS filling the wardrobe.
The current owners have enjoyed the last 10 years cruising the Pacific and Asia and are now ready to move ashore. Come and see this one for yourself. You won’t be disappointed. Located Nelson Marina.
The lounge is a focal point on this vessel – featuring a 50” TV (Satellite TV antenna installed) for watching sky TV & local programs). It is a valuable asset when large events are screened such as the last World Ruby Cup which was a great cruise success. The well equipped bar caters for the guests on board in a relaxing atmosphere
This area has two lounge chairs (which can fold down into a single bed or pushed together to make a double). The servery benches have been re-modelled with the latest composition durable top which blends into the wood panels which give the boat character. This works well as a buffet area for serving large groups. The area also has a TV which can be set up for promotional videos or wedding photos etc. Storage for the cutlery, plates etc are in cupboards in this section. Also a large hot water urn for teas and coffees as well as coffee machine.
