Fair Trader is a one owner motor-yacht from 2001 with complete Finning Caterpillar service records, a diligent Owner who has enjoyed her reassuringly sold build, comfortable interior, and relaxed performance. She was ordered with the larger 660hp Caterpillar power-train option, and her motors are nearing 2000 hours of reliable service. Access to her mechanicals is straightforward, with an entry door at each end of the machinery space, and a well-lit and roomy central bay. Her diesels start readily, and her hull responds predictably under power, with the useful bow and stern-thrusters supplying precision adjustment for docking, and an extra pair of hands fore and aft as you are coming alongside or stern-to.
This layout has the full-beam master suite at the same level as the aft galley, with plenty of light, ventilation and vast amounts of storage for crew kit – one of the reasons why these boats are so well –suited to longer periods of time spent on board. She has been constantly upgraded where deemed necessary, and her interior joinery and varnish-work is in excellent condition for her age – with no apparent leaks or damage to comment on. The saloon area is a lovely place to be – with great views from the side windows, beautifully-finished timber woodwork and re-trimmed soft furnishings, and simply loads of elbow room to enjoy. The helm station has a side door to the starboard deck, there is a proper navigation table opposite, and access down to the forward cabins, and a lovely curved stair to the protected aft deck. The forward accommodation is arranged with a cosy twin bunk cabin down to port – with its own head/shower (this is a very rare and very practical option), large day heads/shower to starboard (and ensuite to the forward twin cabin) and a bright, airy twin cabin up in the bows, with drawer storage to both sides and a central hanging locker up front.
The Sunliner brand indicates that she has the heavier, monocoqued aft overhang, which gives a lot more area to the fly-bridge deck, and superb protection and shade to the teak-laid aft deck. The whole area can be enclosed with canvas, or left open if conditions favour, and gives easy access to the bathing platform, where the current owner opts to keep his tender (there is a large powered davit crane on the upper boatdeck for launch and recovery).
As popular in the Med. as on the South Coast, please do call for further information on this beautifully-presented 535 Sunliner from Trader.
