Alexander Marine are pleased to have SOLD this 2013 Custom 27m Expedition Motor Yacht.
'Segara' was an all-aluminum custom build-out of Western Australia, to a Phil Curran design, and was launched in 2013. She was built with the intention of being chartered across the top of Australia, albeit a change of circumstances during the build meant she had been used strictly as a private vessel. Her proven cruising ability had seen her already complete one circumnavigation of Australia. She was super economical (around 4.6 litres per nautical mile) and she carried ample fuel. Importantly she was built with simplicity and durability in mind so as to cruise remote locations with confidence.
When you approached 'Segara', and especially when you got up into the cockpit, you got a real sense for the enormous 7.4m beam she offered - which made for a high volume vessel throughout. Likewise, she offered generous headroom throughout the boat - including and especially in the engine room - which would be warmly welcomed by anybody working in the supersized machinery space.
Her exterior decks were installed with durable low maintenance cork decking. She featured wide walk-around decks which was great for passengers and crew, and up at the bow, the oversize deck equipment storage locker was a great space (for storing all the cruising essentials such as deck gear, spare lines, rubbish bins, crab pots, bikes).
The cockpit featured a bar, and electric BBQ with an extraction hood for cooking up a storm - guests could enjoy a drink or meal while sitting and the fixed L-shaped seating and table at the rear of the cockpit which was weather protected by the overhead boat deck and also rear cockpit enclosured. There was also ample spare room in the cockpit for large stand-up crowd entertaining. Immediately in front of the bar, a pocket window lowered to connect the aft galley to the cockpit. The S/S framed saloon door was also electric.
The galley was equipped with commercial oversized appliances - another indication of her intended charter application when she was built. The galley joinery/cabinetry, like the rest of the boat, was to a high-quality yacht standard.
As you moved further forward, the beamy saloon makes for a spacious interior and featured ample fixed glazing for guests to enjoy their surroundings outside the vessel. In the forward port corner of the saloon a large L-shaped forward-facing leather couch which was a great place to relax and watch some TV which was mounted on the forward bulkhead. To starboard was the interior/formal dining table. From the forward centreline of the saloon, you entered the on-deck master. From the starboard forward corner of the saloon, you accessed the lower deck accommodation or could get out on the starboard side deck via a pilothouse sliding door. Access up-to the skylounge was via a curved staircase to port in between the galley and the L-shaped couch - likewise and as an alternative also from the cockpit up an external staircase if you were wet.
The on-deck master was a highlight of 'Segara'. For a vessel of her size, this was a rare gem (and was well suited to older owners so as avoid going up or down steps). It was a spacious cabin with a king-sized island bed, lots of natural light, a generous head (on the same level - no steps), and oversized robe.
The lower guest accommodation deck onboard 'Segara' could accommodate nine people in four staterooms. These cabins included two mirrored double cabins aft - both featured hull side picture windows for lots of natural light. The forward VIP featured an island queen-sized double bed. The aft double cabins and VIP all featured an ensuite. And finally, the portside cabin featured a double bed running fore and aft and a single bunk athwartships - this cabin featured a powder room - this was also the logical day head for saloon guests to use. There was a toilet and shower in the skylounge which would come in handy for entertaining on the top level (and it was also an option for guests in the saloon to use the skylounge toilet as well) and likewise for the captain generally.
As for the lazarette and machinery spaces, both of these areas were extremely generous. Serviceability was a breeze thanks to lots of room, and a pile of smart choices during the build process from the highly experienced build crew. 'Segara' was powered by modest hour twin Caterpillar C-12 engines with the intention to cruise long-range at 10 knots. Twin Caterpillar generators took care of the onboard power requirements when away from the dock. Hydraulic bow and stern thrusters, and a wired docking remote, were on hand for ease of docking. She featured a comprehensive and recently upgraded Furuno electronics package which was displayed on four 19" commercial Hatteland screens.
Her sky lounge layout featured an island bench seat in which the captain had a commanding view and could operate the vessel. On the aft of that module was a huge 55" flat-screen TV which could be enjoyed when sitting on the L-shaped couch to starboard. Access out on the boat deck was possible via an access door across the rear bulkhead. A toilet and separate shower stall were featured in the aft port corner of the sky lounge. The L-shaped settee featured a pull-out sofa bed should the captain want to get some sleep while remaining close to the helm.
'Seagra' was AMSA accredited in Class 2B (9 passengers + 2 crew) and 1D (14 passengers + 3 crew) for charter operations.
