The combination of classic Salthouse design and a meticulous build by Miller and Tunnage NZ has created a truly unique vessel in Caravel. Style and grace emanate from this strong “go anywhere” boat. Launched in 2004 and currently used just for pleasure, she has previously held a MNZ Survey Certificate. No expense has been spared in maintaining her to a very high standard. Caravel is just shy of 13 meters in length and displaces 19 tons. Her 6 cylinder John Deere diesel engine provides an economical cruising speed of 8 knots and a top speed of up to 12 knots. Her Jib seen in the photos is a steadying sail making a comfortable journey wherever your destination. The 7hp bow thruster makes for easy manoeuvring when in confined spaces. A Kohler 6.5kw genset supplies auxiliary power. Caravel features wide walk around decks with high bulwarks for extra safety. Access to her coach house cabin is through sliding pilothouse doors on either side. The spacious saloon has the galley aft with settee table to port. Cabins are split fore and aft. To the aft is the owner’s cabin with ensuite and forward of the saloon are two double cabins with a second bathroom. The attention to detail and use of nothing but the best materials is evident at every turn of the head. A generous galley can be found adjacent to her spacious light filled saloon which is complimented with leather and native timbers that invite you to sit and relax a while. The current owners have enjoyed endless hours of coastal cruising and exploration on Caravel with family and friends. Her design and build pedigree means that she is a boat that will provide the same type of enjoyment to her new owners for many years to come. If you’re looking for that launch that takes your breath away then Caravel is well worth your inspection without delay especially at this now reduced price.
