Description

TWIN DIESEL SHAFT DRIVE IN SYDNEY HARBOUR.

•    Dual Helm setup  
•    1Kw transducer

Those looking for a fishing boat with great sea-going performance will be drawn to this Vindex 40.  The deeper V profile of the hull is designed with offshore conditions in mind and the stability is further improved with the ballast of an elongated skeg underwater.  

As the current owners will testify, this is more than just a fishing boat.  She is great for a young family, the aft deck has deep and secure coamings.  When you need to venture forward, wide walk around decks on each side have plenty of handholds and rails.  The open nature of the saloon allows for the kids to be safe and move between the cockpit and cabin easily.  The whole layout is actually very child friendly as they are never out of sight.  

Powered by twin Diesel engines, she is unbelievably fuel efficient.  10 knots, at 2600 rpm is just 8L/hr.  With two full helm stations, you can alter between the Flybridge and saloon depending on conditions or depending where your crowd of friends are.  

It is more than just the price that is attractive about Swordfish, her versatility is a huge draw.  Full details available upon request.
