If you’re looking for a strong, capable and proven blue water motorsailer, look no further. RECLUSE is a comfortable cruiser or live aboard powered by a 50HP Perkins 4/108 diesel wth Hurth gearbox, fully rebuilt 2016. She has 2 cabins forward, including a good size double owners cabin with a nice head area. The mid-ships 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 weather turns nasty. When the sun’s out, the refurbished cockpit area 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 previous owners spent 10 years cruising the Pacific and Asia. The current owner has completed many upgrades and general maintenance work and now moving on to other projects.
Come and see this one for yourself. You won’t be disappointed. Located Nelson Marina.
