BVI Yacht Sales Overview

Malolo is a 65′ custom built steel cutter/cruiser. Designed and built in New Zealand to commercial specifications, this boat was made to last! Not only is she intended for durability and safety, this boat sails extremely well too. Great option for both cruising adventure or operating charter business. Reason for selling- owner returning to shore after 20 years cruising.

Easy to sail single-handed with a power winch to raise the main and furl the jib. Two separate auto pilot systems make for safe offshore voyage. Feathering prop and fin keel allow a max speed of up to 15 knots under sail! Easy boarding from tender with large swim platform, also great for activities and enough space on deck to stow the toys.

Gorgeous handmade teak interior. Four cabins sleep 9, with total sleeping capacity of 13. Spacious galley and saloon comfortable for family or charter guests alike.

Three large solar panels, wind generator and inverter provide ample power. No need to start gen set and recharge batteries for days! Refrigerator and freezer run on separate systems and can be powered by solar/wind. Ceramic water filter.

Quarter-inch steel under the waterline, watertight bulkheads and tankage in the bilge make this boat an extremely safe option. Only 3 through hulls on entire boat. 350 gallon fuel capacity, three water tanks with over 600 gallon capacity and 200 gallon waste capacity.

Original Ford engine running great. Meter no longer functional, displays 5600 hours. Keel cooler for both engines, no raw seawater.

Gen set and water maker need servicing. Some port lights need replacing. Canvas due for replacement and wood hatches need varnishing. 
Delivery to Caribbean available and willing to discuss delivery to Europe as well!
