This extraordinary ship offer the purchaser a myriad of applications. High among those must be as a Guard Ship or Special Operations Vessel. Built by the Australian Navy she has served in a paramilitary role and has a fully equipped and secure armoury, with berthing for 54 operational crew and other accomodation. The holds will accomodate 100 tonnes of stores, plus another 50 in refrigeration. Powered by the imitable economic kelvin T8 s with 2 : 1 reduction gearboxes producing a viable 9 knots in the cruise and 10.25 at Sprint, but do have regard for her aesthetic, I think she would make an amazing cruising yacht or expedition vessel or even a private ship. Her line is very yacht like, remarkably so for a vessel of such operational merits .
Her engines and equipment are run regularly and a video of the engine runs will appear shortly on the video site. I would recommend a viewing, as a walk through her will, enable her adaptability to be assessed at first hand . She is based on the east Coast while she is presently on lay up elsewhere but she is in the UK.
