Geoff Wilson is the man behind the Aquastar yard in Guernsey. With the assistance of his talented team, they have managed to build a worldwide brand and reputation for motor yachts of the well-built kind, ranging from 38 – 85ft. With owners tending to hang on to these versatile semi displacement motor yachts and demand for offshore passage makers on the increase, residual values have remained strong.
The 2017 Aquastar 430 Aft cabin motor yacht TEMERITY presents as a serious opportunity to buy one of the latest Aquastar’s to come out of this legendary yard. She is powered by twin Yanmar 6LY CR -400hp diesel engines, which for a semi displacement hull has an impressive top end speed of 28 knots. However, high teens will be the efficient way to run this nautical mile muncher. The Joystick control makes docking even more effortless, considering the hull draws 1.14m and a central keel runs the full length of the boat. TEMERITY boasts an impressive specification including; bow thruster, stabilisers, heating, satellite TV, digital wifi pack, Kohler generator and a huge electronics package. Aquastar have cleverly located the engines in the midships sitting on above the fuel tanks, which keeps the weight exactly where you need it! The well-documented sea keeping ability of Aquastar is undeniable and this 430 aft cabin very much follows that heritage of being soft riding, with vibration restricted to an absolute minimum.
Moving through to the accommodation you will be greeted with the high gloss mahogany and maple interior with teak / holly galley flooring. The deck saloon upholstery is finished in a complimentary tan leather that works well with the maple finish. Panoramic views are on offer from the saloon, thanks to feature glass that floods the interior with natural light. The saloon has a practical ‘U’ shaped dinette arrangement to starboard that may be used as an occasional single berth. There is a full beam galley with a Keyon two ring electric hob, sharp combination microwave oven / grill, extractor fan, twin s/s sinks, Whirlpool dishwasher, Isotherm fridge, chest freezer, soba babynova 1000 washing machine and Corian work top. From here, you step down into the forward cabin, where you will find a scissor-action twin berth that converts to a double. The full beam aft cabin with en-suite will of course be a huge selling point that will make you feel at home!
TEMERITY is a versatile fast cruiser that is encouragingly predictable and both comfortable on passage as well as safely in Harbour. The spacious and refreshing interior will allow you to spend quality time onboard, while you decide where the next adventure lies.
