Trader 54 Sunliner semi-displacement motor yacht with twin Caterpillar 210hp diesels. Well constructed yacht with easy access side decks and clearly defined living spaces both inside and out. Beautifully constructed using teak and mahogany giving a classic feel and finish. The vessel sleeps 8 persons over 4 cabins with an ensuite master cabin at the rear. Well equipped galley, great storage, generator, tender crane and teak decks. Vessel requires some investment to get her back to former days hence the low asking price. Work required includes internal woodwork where historic leaks have occurred and some remedial attentiuon to the teak decks. It should be noted that the yacht is mechanically and structurally sound. Would make an ideal liveaboard.

Engine & Electrics:
Vessel powered by twin Caterpillar 3208 inboard diesel engines. The engines are original and are rated as 210hp.
The engines have been well maintained by previous and present owners.
The last service was 2017 but the boat has been laid up since. Engine bay can be accessed at either side of saloon for daily checks. Major servicing involves removing the carpet which is no big deal.
Engine start panel at the lower helm with full gauges and instruments. Engine hours are higher on the starboard as the previous owner ran this engine for heating the water and to save fuel on longer passages.
Reduction gearboaxes driving stainless steel shafts and 4-bladed bronze propellers. Rope cutters.
12/220V system onboard providing domestic and engine power. Batteries recharged via engine alternator and onboard battery charger. There is a diesel-fuelled, 15Kw generator which will run most of the systems on board when at anchor.
There are two main fuel tanks port and starboard of engine bay. Each holds 1,225 litres and is prefiltered before reaching the engines. There is a 470-litre reserve tank for emergencies.
The vessel consumes 4.5 Litres per mile at cruising. This gives a reserve range of 620 miles.
