    Owner says "Bring All Offers"

    The Bluewater 55 is a tempting lady if you value space ... lots of it.  The expansive sundeck lets you enjoy the sunshine and a gentle sea breeze.  And, if the weather turns cool, there is plenty of inviting space inside.  You won't even lose the view thanks to all the windows which surround the adjoining salon and galley.

    Few yachts offer such elegant and elaborate interiors.  A comfortable (electric powered) sofa (three controls for each reclining seat) centers the main spacious salon (new as of January 2016) as well as a separate (electric powered) recliner to the starboard.  The stylish dinette has wrap-around seating.  Clean, linear cabinetry (recently re-finished teak) set off the well-appointed galley that boasts a full size refrigerator/freezer, separate (new) Whirlpool ice-maker, princess stove, and microwave.  Ambient lighting creates warmth throughout the entire main cabin.


    Fore and aft staterooms feature Queen-sized berths.  Each stateroom has a connecting head, tub (aft) and shower, a built-in Flatscreen television (new), nightstands and cedar-lined closets.  A VIP-stateroom (just across from the galley) also has a queen size berth. There's plenty of sleeping room for eight to ten guests!


    Powerful twin Crusader 454 engines give her surprising swiftness. Functional controls let you cruise where you want, for as long as you like.  The upper helm station offers a lot of space, security and command ease.


    Quote by Captain Richard Jaeckel:  "The aftermath of Hurricane Hugo presented me with a perfect opportunity for another Bluewater test with 48 mile-per hour winds and 8' to 12' seas.  Every time, the Bluewater's sharp entry sliced easily through the waves and handled just fine.  In a test run, offshore of San Francisco, I had the Bluewater surfing down the side of waves in excess of 12'.  It felt like I could reach out and touch the sea, but the boat stayed upright and undamaged.  This boat just won't get into trouble, no matter what I try to do to it."

    Brokers Comments
    This is a great opportunity to pick up a roomy yacht that would make a great live-aboard or coastal cruiser below market value!  This model has enough flare and freeboard to make ocean or bay crossings unlike most houseboats.  The current owner bought the boat a few years ago and has made many improvements as reflected above as well as:
    •  All hoses and belts changed on engines and generator
    •  Exhaust system checks out well
    •  Fluids and filters changed regularly

    •  Engines finely tuned
