Alexander Marine Australia is pleased to present this 1999 Offshore 62 Motor Yacht 'Reliance 'to the market as central agents.
One reason for the huge success of the Offshore 62 model, is her sea kindly Crealock hull which features a deep forefoot, a mild deadrise, and substantial displacement - these yachts are well known as being easy in a seaway. And, with long keels and a low center of gravity, they were designed with offshore voyaging in mind and to that extent 'Reliance' has crossed the Tasman and cruised PNG thus far in her life.
Underway, 'Reliance' is everything you might want, and more. She's fast when required (18-plus knots), well mannered, and solid. In 2008 she was re-powered with a pair of Cummins QS11's at 610hp each. She is further equipped with an Onan 11kw Genset, Wesmar fin stabilizers, a bow thruster, and Yacht Controller wireless docking remote.
'Reliance's' impressive cockpit features beautiful teak-laid decks. To starboard against the saloon, bulkhead is a cockpit steering station that will come in handy when docking or blue water fishing - featuring a stainless destroyer wheel and full engine/thruster controls. To port against the saloon, bulkhead is a massive top-loading fridge/freezer box. One standout feature is her supersize centerline varnished teak capped double stern cockpit doors, which opens inwards to connect the cockpit and swim platform, offering usable space rarely seen. The teak-laid swim platform is the perfect spot for diving, fishing, or putting a steak on the rail-mounted stainless steel BBQ. The cockpit has great shade courtesy of the overhead boat beck - perfect for our warmer climates.
Double sliding doors open from the cockpit into the saloon, boasting a large U-shaped settee to port around a dual pedestal dining table. There is a TV mounted on the entertainment cabinet to starboard in between bolstered lounges to complement the adjacent settee - in total, the saloon offers a lot of seating and entertaining space. Teak is the standard choice for the extensive joinery work and built-in cabinets with raised panels throughout the boat, all of which are examples of a master woodworker's touch.
Just forward in the saloon and to port is her U-shaped galley, which is well placed to look after guests in the saloon and cockpit, as well as having an opening to the raised pilothouse - the chef will never feel left out of the action onboard 'Reliance'. With wide counters, the galley has all the expected amenities, including under bench Westinghouse fridges, a Meile oven, and a Broan trash compactor. There is storage galore in drawers, lockers, and above- and below-counter cabinets. Offshore gets a gold star for providing solid teak fiddles rails on all counters so that no spillage of soup or coffee will drip down the gorgeous teak.
One impressive feature of the saloon-galley area is the airiness, due to oversized windows that provide a great view even while seated. Also, with the side decks shaded by the overhanging flybridge and boat deck structure, the saloon is protected from the midday sun in tropical climates.
The raised pilothouse is everything you'd expect from a yacht designed by experienced offshore skippers. The dashboard wraps across from a chart table which is positioned to port, past the array of electronic monitors and the teak-rimmed wheel, to a console at the skipper's right elbow, that's thoughtfully provided to hold everything from binoculars to a chart guide to a mug of tea. Dual Navigator helm seats sit forward of an L-shaped settee that can convert to a pilot berth offshore. Finishing off the pilothouse is a cabinet to starboard with a Vintec wine fridge and Vitrifrigo ice maker. Port and starboard pilothouse doors provide ease of access onto each side deck and great natural ventilation.
Skippers will also appreciate the great visibility in the pilothouse, as the saloon is not closed off, allowing both aft corners of the yacht to be seen from the pilothouse for easier docking. In addition to the ability to have a peek out either teak-faced pilothouse doors as required. Keep in mind also her bow thruster, wireless docking remote, and cockpit control station all assist in making docking 'Reliance' a hassle-free experience.
Adjacent the helm station, to starboard, is a staircase down to the forward staterooms offering a two-cabin, single-head arrangement. Forward, the VIP stateroom offers a centreline island double bed, two realistically sized hanging lockers, and direct/private access to a spacious head with an enclosed shower. Aft and to port is the guest cabin which is fitted with over and under-bunk beds, which allows room for a hanging locker. An internal pocket slider door maximizes cabin space.
Mid-ships adjacent to the galley to starboard, steps lead down to the master stateroom - which therefore has its own private entry. The master cabin takes advantage of the vessel's full beam. The athwartship queen berth is set into a padded headboard between two built-in nightstands, and the rear bulkhead has an array of drawers and louvre door cabinets. The master head, equipped with a large enclosed shower stall, runs along the starboard side with, need I say, more drawers for toiletries and lockers for towels.
Up on the flybridge, the helm and seating areas are protected by a beautifully finished stainless steel top frame with a fabric cover. The fiberglass bridge console has a single Raymarine monitor plus the engine screens, a stainless steel destroyer wheel, and a settee that wraps around two tables for easy egress. Unlike some low-backed settees, this one has a comfortable high back for support on long trips.
Here's another thoughtful touch: a watertight hatch in the console not only provides light and fresh air to the pilothouse but also offers an easy way to pass a tray of 'toasties' to the bridge.
Aft, the boat deck is surrounded by beautifully welded double stainless steel rails, and there is ample room for the Carbie C-10 RIB tender and water toys, launched with a Davco 350kg Crane.
