ASANTE Bluewater 1280 Aluminium Expedition Vessel

Designed and built as comfortable, go-anywhere yacht by German master-builders specialising in aluminium vessels, this remarkable pilothouse cruising boat is worth a look for those to whom safety and comfort at sea are paramount. Very similar to Alubat or Reinke, this serious boat is built to the highest standards on the demand of her original owner, also German, who wished to explore some of the most remote regions of the world starting with the daunting North Atlantic ocean.

Her current owners, a British couple with two children, purchased the boat in 2016 in Tobago and have been cruising the Pacific ever since. It is unfortunately time for them to now return home as their children must get back to school. They were extremely happy with their choice of yacht for the adventure and felt completely safe with 'Kulfi', which also provided them with a pleasant and comfortable home on the water.

'Kulfi' is well maintained and would make an ideal expedition vessel or serious offshore cruiser suited to extreme conditions.

Her interior is very comfortable, with an elevated saloon (deck saloon), which offers great views of the surroundings, and two double cabins below, one with bunk beds and one with a large V berth.

The beautiful saloon converts to a large double berth (perfect on a passage or as a day bed!) There is a diesel heater to keep the cabin toasty when exploring the high latitudes.

The large galley is well equipped and safe to use at sea, and is equipped with a good size oven / grill, a proper food preparation area and a fridge.

The cockpit is large and offers full control of the sails without having to venture on deck.

Electronics inventory is suited to offshore travel and safe navigation, with AIS AI 50(Simrad), VHF Unidem UM 380, SSB ICOM 710, SCS PACTOR 3Modem, Depth Sounder Clipper, Iridium 9505 A, Simrad auto helm (AP 28), Garmin multi display
Plotter, Panasonic CF -18 Tough book and EPIRB Mcmurdo Smartfind 406 with GPS.

For electricity, there are plenty of solar panels as well as a Honda 1000w generator that can be plugged directly in the shore power. The boat is equipped to accomodate both 240V and 110V, perfect for the world traveller.
