Tornado 2 has burst onto the brokerage market for the first time and represents and exciting chance to own one of the fastest and best-looking power catamarans around.
This seriously fast 54-foot Teknicraft foiling open-flybridge power catamaran will meet all of your needs and more, offering a very spacious and stable platform for entertaining, fishing or just cruising.
Powered by twin Scania DS1469M 750 HP diesel engines on shaft surface drive, she will impress with a cruise speed of 35 knots and a top speed of 45 knots
The carbon-fibre hull with an aluminium foil, machined from a solid aluminium billet, was originally built in 2000 and used in survey to ferry thrillseekers around New Zealand’s Hauraki Gulf and then the famous Hole in the Rock.
The vessel received a full refit in 2014 turning the 50-seater vessel into a spacious and well-designed open flybridge sports fisher.
Boasting a very large and spacious saloon, galley and cockpit, Tornado 2 is one of the most functional sports fishers to come onto the market.
A removable and/or repositionable cockpit table gives you the option to entertain and fish at the same time.
The rear boarding platform spans the boat’s full 5.5m width, giving you easy access for fishing and diving as well as to the BBQ and cockpit sink. Rod racks under the flybridge make storage of fishing rods a breeze.
The spacious saloon and kitchen work well together with a fold-out galley window to the cockpit, which opens the whole boat up and gives this vessel a massive ‘wow factor’.
There are two comfortable double beds with a spacious single to the rear, as well as another small single in the saloon and a full-sized toilet and shower to starboard.
The flybridge is easily accessed via the well-designed stainless stairs where three racaro-styled bucket seats await the skipper and friends. There is also a bench seat with easy seating for another four guests.
The open flybridge is well designed with a buffer that perfectly deflects the wind when underway perfectly…but if you stand up at 35knots, you’ll lose your hat!
Up front, hidden away under what looks like a sun lounger, is a 2.8m Katatach tender with a 10hp outboard. Just unfold the davit and lift the tender up and into the water!
The C-zone electrical switchboard interacts with the twin Simrad fishfinder, radar chart plotter and autopilot. The genset is available, should you require it, to make water or to boil the jug ,and hot water is readily available from a gas califont.
Holding 1800 litres of diesel the Hauraki Gulf and the Bay of Islands are your playground at the turn of the key.
Don’t miss this one-off opportunity to own a superbly built and well set up power cat!
