This 78ft Don Brooke Pilothouse Ketch “Bluefin” is an excellent cruising vessel and features a large pilothouse and spacious interior. A major re-fit was completed in April 2016 and the vessel is now ready to go. Her full teak decks were replaced in 2007 and are glued not screwed so are leak free. A large bimini covers the cockpit and aft deck where there is lots of seating and a BBQ area.
From the large covered cockpit area steps lead to the pilothouse with inside steering position and long sofas to port and starboard. Stairs lead down aft to the master cabin with island bed and adjacent double, both of which are ensuite. Heading forward from the pilot house is the main saloon and dining area with the galley down to starboard with access to the walk in engine room and an ensuite twin bunk guest cabin to port. Forward of the saloon is a further twin bunk guest cabin with a day head across the corridor and a triple crew cabin in the bows.
This Don Brooke 78 is in great condition and benefiting from a recent refit. With capacity for 8 guests and 3 crew she would make an excellent charter boat or long range cruising boat for a large family.
