Malua - an Adams Bluewater
This Adams Bluewater 42 has cruised the world, been rejuvenated on its return, and is ready to set sail into the sunrise tomorrow. Constructed and approved into 2C survey (2004) but never chartered, it has a unique layout with an exceptional fit-out and a best-in-class inventory. It was built for strength and seaworthiness with an integrated keel, skeg hung rudder, sugar-scoop and sea-kindly lines. It will suit a single sailor or a couple to cruise the Australian coast or to return to distant international shores.
Malua is an exceptional vessel - designed and fitted out better than a standard Bluewater Cruiser. The equipment matches its 2C Survey requirements and its voyaging history. Hauled in 2022 for out-of-water survey and anti-foul. The 8 new 200ah AGM batteries were imported from Germany in 2022. New upholstery and North sails were fitted just prior to COVID. An installed diesel generator drives a watermaker to complement the two solar panels and D400 silent wind generator.
The vessel and it's inventory represents exceptional value which sets it apart from others listed. A visit is a requirement.
The price is similar to other Bluewater Cruising vessels recently sold but lets discuss how you can own Malua.
Our family have decided to change course and get a smaller vessel or return to France to complete the passage to Paris.
Sail to distant shore or just up and down the coast Malua will look after you in all conditions. She was built to just do that and she has proven her worth. You can sail her single handed, with just one other or with a full crew. North Sails Sydney provided a full set of sails last season to replace the original set. The sail set up for reefing, is single-line furling main, Profurl genoa and staysail operated from the cockpit to an electric winch. A large full spinnaker and reacher both with snuffing sock completes the sail wardrobe. All sail are operated from the cockpit from electric winches. Yes a one-person operation.
Internally Malua is spacious with portlights that open to give cross ventilation in the tropics. All bunks have European style inner spring mattresses and lea cloths. The shower is engine heated while the toilet is like in an aircraft vacuum suction - so one press and into the holding tank.
Malua is sea-kindly, safe, comfortable thoughtfully set-up and equipped for entertaining or voyaging.
