NOW REDUCED. This Woodward 47 is exclusively listed with 38 South Boat Sales at Sandringham, VIC. She is a solidly built, strong and exceptionally roomy cruising yacht with a good turn of speed. Commissioned by her current owner in 1996 this yacht has a spacious deck and cockpit and an enormously roomy interior with twin double berth aft cabins, each with their own private ensuite toilet and shower and a huge forward owners cabin with a large double pullman style berth plus a settee and a private ensuite toilet and shower.There is excellent storage capacity in every cabin and throughout this yacht.

Superbly shipwright appointed below decks with quality teak cabinetry and trim, this Woodward 47 has a lovely ambience and offers a high level of comfort for local sailing, coastal or blue water cruising. Her inviting main saloon is generously proportioned and ten or more can sit around her saloon table in comfort. The lead-light doors of her custom teak cocktail cabinetry are an impressive feature. Her cleverly designed galley is ideal for use at sea in any weather or in port with lots of storage capacity and plenty of bench space. 

She has a generously proportioned chart table for the navigator with HF, VHF, and 27 Meg radios at hand together with GPS and a multi function display for the Raymarine electronics suite. She is powered by an economical 59hp Volvo Penta diesel engine with saildrive and has hydraulic steering via a large diameter stainless steel wheel. Her twin spreader mast was fully re-rigged with new standing rigging in 2017 and there is a complete wardrobe of sails including spinnakers and the convenience of a headsail furler. Powerful winches means she is easily handled for a yacht of this size. Notably, she has twice won the prestigious ORCV Cock of the Bay race on corrected time along with many other club racing successes. 

Ideal for a family or perhaps even shared ownership between a couple of families, this impressively appointed and remarkably spacious Woodward 47 is ideal to take you, your family and friends anywhere you want to go offshore or you may choose to continue to enjoy her roomy comforts and maybe some club racing on inshore waters.
