This excellent 38ft Yacht is ready to be put back in the water and to set sail. Her current owners simply no longer find the time to take her out but this presents you with the perfect opportunity to purchase this lovely yacht.
The Rapa Nui is an off soundings cruising vessel constructed in and around the early 1980’s in New Zealand. She is approximately 38’ length overall and is claimed to have a displacement of 7.5 tons. Her draft is said to be 5’6” and she is equipped with encapsulated ballast, long traditional keel. The vessel is tiller steered via a separately installed, high aspect ratio G.R.P. rudder. Her design is taken from a traditional timber yacht and carries the elegance of timber vessels into the G.R.P. era. The yacht was professionally constructed in New Zealand of C-Flex G.R.P with a marine ply deck over hard wood deck beams. A general inspection will indicate that this vessel has been extremely well maintained.
Rapa Nui is perfectly situated for exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Currently laid up, in her own cradle, at East Llanion, near Pembroke Dock. However, she also has a mooring at Black Tar, near Llangwm, which is a 15 minute drive from East Llanion. Her mooring at Black Tar is excellently situated for exploring the Cleddau River; leading out from Neyland to Milford Haven, then onto Dale, and St Bride’s Bay.
She is a spacious yacht with 6 berths and 1 toilet which give ample space to entertain friends and family. The 4 Cylinder Nissan Diesel Engine has been recently serviced and is in excellent condition.
She’s been freshly painted and has had a new carpet fitted inside. Throughout she has first class furnishings and the galley is in good condition with an excellent chart table. The water tank hold approximately 40 gallons of fresh water as well as around 20 gallons of diesel.
Other features include an electric anchor, self steering gear, and numerous other electronic devices. There’s been a new spray hood (fitted June 2015) and all sails & rigging are in excellent condition.
