Details
Spread over three levels this vessel is ideal for liveaboard, entertaining, and long-range cruising enthusiasts.

Fiddler is powered by, the never-say-die, 9.5lt Gardner 150hp diesel engine, which was reconditioned in the Gardner factory in 1999.

The engine room is serviced by a fully equipped workshop including a drill press, grinder, and vice, with plenty of bench space for maintenance and ample room to house the comprehensive range of spares.

With a fuel capacity of 13,700lt, there is no need for refuelling stops between Vanuatu and Indonesia or a Kimbley's return journey.

Two helms are supported by Lorenz and Raymarine GPS charts and TMQ auto-pilots and one parking helm with gear selection and power adjustment, all with rudder indicator gauges - make driving a breeze.

The expansive midship galley has recently been upgraded with Corian benchtops/splashbacks/ceramic sinks and is complimented with a Sharp Convection/Microwave, Kleenmaid, four-burner gas cooktop, and Fisher & Paykel upright day fridge/freezer.

Comprehensive Solar with 3.2 KW Canadian panels feeding the 10 x 200 amp/hour AGM batteries that were replaced in 2023.

A Victron 3000W inverter converts to 240V with enough reserve to power the air conditioning to the two lower cabins overnight (without the need for a genset).

This immaculate vessel has been regularly (at two-year intervals) 'hauled out' from July 2006 and is a testament to the meticulous maintenance protocols adopted by the current northern Queensland owner.

Nothing more to spend, Fiddler is ready to go, ready to go long-range cruising, experience Australia's dramatic coastline, the Pacific and beyond.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a spacious liveaboard and a change of lifestyle, look no further than this beautifully outfitted maritime masterpiece.
