"Antipodean" is a world class blue-water motor yacht. This unique vessel has been cleverly designed and superbly built to commercial survey standards. With stabilizers, bulbous bow, watertight bulkheads she is an outstanding sea boat (well proven on Tassie's West Coast). With a range of over 5500 nautical miles, "Antipodean" is quite capable of crossing oceans. On board, the crew (and guests) cruise in absolute comfort. The comprehensively equipped bridge, the chef's galley, the five private cabins with ensuites and the magnificent saloon all make for a bon voyage. The standard of the fine teak fit-out is exceptional.

The current owner is a retired master. He and his wife owned a fleet of cruise boats on the West Coast of Tasmania. "Antipodean" is maintained to a professional standard.
