This yacht has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
The Bougainvillea 62 is a serious blue water cruiser that really sails with 200 nautical mile days being the standard for this yacht. Designed in a way that she can easily be sailed by a couple or family the boats sail plan and deck layout is well thought out with this in mind. The pilothouse is one of the best features of the boat and becomes an extension of the cockpit offering shelter from the elements with great all round visibility a chart table nay station and helm to strb and a sea berth settee to port. The cockpit is well sheltered behind the doghouse that houses the pilothouse and can seat up to 8 people comfortably. The cockpit and side decks are laid with 12mm teak with no screws. Up fwd the boats has a sail locker just aft of the anchor locker and is huge, in fact the amount of storage on this yacht is a credit to the builder and designer. The high freeboard of the yacht offers a dry sail it most conditions as well as creating amazing volume in the accommodation. Below decks the finish and craftsmanship of the silky oak interior is truly outstanding. This is certainly no production yacht, the attention to detail in the joinery and fit out to have access panels to all systems on the boat is something that you do not often see.
Lying Phuket, asking price USD 590.000.
