36ft Norton $28k

This professionally built Norton Custom has been completely kitted out and refitted ready to sail.
A solid cold-molded hull with dynal fibreglass sheath, solid oregon mast and comfortable cockpit that has been a proven blue-water cruiser.
Her immaculate timber interior has spared little expense and is a credit to her previous owners, allowing 6ft headspace, room for up to six dining and berths for five adults.

We bought this boat off a liveaboard couple who treated her like their real home, then we set her up for cruising: new solar panel and controller, batteries, bullet-proof steering kit, 12v macerating toilet...

We sailed her over 1500km from Brisbane to Townsville in the trip of a lifetime but now it's back to work for us. She has a 150L water tank and 150L diesel tank. Powered by a 33hp 3-litre Isuzu diesel that runs beautifully. Was slipped and anti-fouled in Feb 2012.
A list of all recent additions and work done, with receipts:
* new 12v macerating toilet
* new 12v/240v Duoetto water heater/shower
* new 140w solar panel and MPPT controller w/ digital display
* new dedicated starter battery with 600cca
* new standing rigging ($4000 - lifespan for 8-10 years)
* full marine charts from Brisbane to Cape York Peninsula (rrp $700)
* July service on Isuzu and cleaning of injectors
* new professionally installed Broadwater Stove/Oven
* August lift out, inspection and pressure wash in Mackay.
* new steering system fitted

'Shiraz' was recently surveyed in April 2012 and survey is available for your perusal. Comes with two house batteries (366AH) and one dedicated starter battery, two large plough anchors, depth sounder, new EPIRB, VHF, two headsails, storm gib and main, fishing gear, all cutlery and cooking utensils, loads of pantry space.
A great boat with all the hard work done, ready to sail. A lot of boat for this price and will not last long. Cheers!
