Help a lady out!

I bought my seafaring husband this beautiful yacht. We had amazing trips on it and I loved sailing her. But then my husband and I divorced and I was left with the yacht. I love her but she is not my passion and not my area of expertise. It makes my heart sad seeing her potential go under utilised.

So help me out. Buy my lovely old girl and see the world differently.

This boat would make a perfect alternative to buying an Auckland home. Put her Bayswater Marina and have absolute waterfront living for a fraction of the cost of an Auckland house or apartment.

Ruah is an elegant long-distance cruising vessel designed and built for the Australian Navy in 1944 as a survey ship. Over the past 15 years Ruah has undergone an extraordinarily high quality conversion to become a supremely capable and comfortable private yacht.
A new Gardner 6LX, 175HP main engine was installed 2013. At the same time, all electrical systems were upgraded.
She’s a yacht with a livable accommodation plan that has received the plaudits of all who have inspected her. She has 6 private cabins in total. She has graceful lines, unsurpassed structural integrity and exceptional directional stability. This combination, along with her spacious and well-designed interior make her an ideal cruiser and live aboard. The attention to detail and the superb craftsmanship make this vessel a delight to own.

Insured value: $800,000

Ruah is a masterpiece. View in Chaffers Marina, Wellington.
