45' Classic Bridgedeck Bay Cruiser.

Traditional "Norman Wright-style" timber Queensland Bay Cruiser, designed and built by Bert Ellis (apprenticed to Norman Wright), and cherished with thorough preemptive structural and mechanical maintenance regimes and thoughtful upgrades throughout her life to be an elegant, comfortable and mechanically reliable vessel for extended sojourns.

Whilst prior owners have maintained the boat comprehensively, the current owner has gone a step further, investing many hours and dollars in discerning, intelligent upgrades and improvements on comfort, sustainability and presentation, both inside and on deck.

Her carvel-planked hull and beech and teak decks have been meticulously preserved with preemptive timber maintenance and full protective covers including topside curtains for hull paintwork, deck covers for timber weather protection, and transom and dinghy shade cover.

The 210hp Caterpillar 3208 is fresh water cooled through stainless heat exchangers and exhausts, with 380 hours since the first cut (full out-of-boat engine rebuild) by Caterpillar USA, along with full running gear service in 2014. An Onan genset with around 2,500 hours completes the mechanical reliability and peace of mind.

Inside upgrades include 4 burner stove/oven/griller, separate front-opening 12v fridge and freezer units, dimmable interior LED lights with red night-light feature, Fusion stereo, electric BBQ on aft deck, Rheem hot water system and contemporary soft furnishings to complement the sensible, time-tested, layout with modern levels of comfort. Sliding port and starboard helm doors allow access to side-decks fore and aft, with access to flybridge and roof-mounted tinny via removable ladder to maintain her gorgeous aesthetic. Paravane outrigger stabilisation system deploys to improve stability and folds discreetly away when not required.

- Beautifully maintained beech and teak decks
- Sleeps 6 in 4-bunk cabin forward and double cabin aft
- 12v fans throughout
- Spacious entertaining aft deck
