Soverel 48 Ketch
The Soverel 48 is a fantastic live aboard / cruising ketch that can be easily sailed single handed or with company. A solid boat that sails really well. Hasn't been sailed that much in the last 15 years but the boat has been well maintained with plenty of modifications and upgrades during that time. Additional equipment includes; all kitchen wares, tools, power tools (grinder, drill, jig saw, sander), various spare parts and filters, dive tank, BCD, regulator, homemade dive hookah, large Magma gas BBQ, awnings (foredeck, salon, aft cabin), cockpit cushions, fishing rods (2 trolling, 1 spinning), power pulse battery maintenance, too many solar panels you'll have to sell some (3x 135W, 1x 75W and 2x 25W), Kiss wind generator, high water alarm, crash bilge pump, 380c Spectra watermaker, Furuo radar. You may notice some other items in the photos such as burglar alarm, HF radio and air-conditioning units but I'm not listing these as they have not been tested. Has been on the hard since Jan 2016 but has had a complete tidy up and maintenance work May 2017 ready for sale. Needs new house bank batteries but has a new cranking battery. No GPS or chart plotter as the owner used a tablet with Navionics charts. All photos apart from those of the boat in the water where taken May 2017.
