Owner says : The interior hull areas of the yacht were inspected during her last refit in 2018. It was found that all interior hull areas were in excellent condition and well insulated. The interior has been coated with a product called aquaseal which is a bitumen like substance similar to that used in metal water tanks. This has then been covered with 50 mm thick expanded fiberglass insulation with an R2 insulation rating.
The areas that are not insulated are: engine well, top of fuel and water tanks, forward bilge area and machinery area at the stern. These areas were cleaned and repainted during refit.

Broker's Comments

Presenting in exceptional condition for her age, this professionally built, round bilge, steel, Adam 45 “Fat Adams” has a 4.5 m beam giving an incredibly spacious, light and airy saloon. Originally completed in 1989 but never used, as the first owner, a German perfectionist, found he was too busy on his farm to use the boat, so he took her home and parked her in his barn. She was rescued in 2004, by the owner of Townsville Shipyard ( Australia ), had a full professional refit and was relaunched in late 2005. Sold again in 2015 to her current owner and sailed to Thailand where she was again re fitted for the owners intention of long term single handed sailing. Unfortunately the owners plans have had to change and following another refit this striking vessel is offered for sale ready to go.
