Firefox is a classic Australian Centreboard Northshore 46, currently cruising around the many islands of Langkawi, Malaysia, with her live aboard owner.
This well-known design is spacious and practical, accompanied with sturdy and consistent performance in all winds, . An amazing sailing boat, and perfect for the lighter winds of Sth East Asia, but absolutely capable of ocean passages in all weather and situations. A true world cruising boat. Being of centreboard design, she also can slip into anchorages and places that other boats cannot access.
Fire Fox is a well built yacht with a safe spacious cockpit, easy handling, 2 double cabins, a storage cabin that can be converted back into a bunk room, a large U shaped saloon has a drop down table ( that easily seats 6 people), that converts easily into a double bunk.
To port we have a well laid out galley with plenty of storage and counter space. Forward is a passage way with the head to port, and plenty of storage on the starboard side, leading into the double Vberth. Planty of headroom, ventaliation and natural light throughout.
Her rig and sails were recently replaced, but the owner says the in boom furling clutch system needs repair, ( a pin for the reefing ) or requires a system change to traditional sails. Full sail is not a problem.
She can easily and comfortably sleep 6-7 people.
If you are aware of Northshores you know they are renowned for their great sail-ability.
Firefox is priced well and has a motivated seller.
An amazing 46 ft boat that will take you anywhere.
