About This Boat

1987 Bristol 54.4 centre cockpit - $240,000 - Seller motivated!

"Civilization measures its progress by tracing accomplishments along the way.  One such milestone attests to mankind's advancement at sea.  The Bristol 54.4.

In an age of her own by virtue of smooth, clean lines, an abundance of sail, and the even, deliberate course she keeps.  Designer Dieter Empacher carries on the Bristol tradition of excellence with a sleek, shallow draft hull that lifts and speeds her graceful tonnage - allowing easy, steadfast steering no matter how much wind is blowing.

The Bristol 54.4 slopes from thrusting bow to streamlined cabin, then wraps around a wide, comfortable cockpit where winches are in reach and visibility is complete.  Her shapely transom leaves a fluent wake behind.

Below decks, a home afloat of finest teak or mahogany, hand worked to an owner's special whims.  Double showers, triple staterooms, and quality fixtured galley and heads radiate from centre, creating a spacious main salon.

The Bristol 54.4.  How far civilisation has come."  -  Bristol Yachts 

'Harkaway' features 3 staterooms, 2 heads with separate shower stalls, recent electronics, generator, air conditioning, recent RIB and outboard, electric winches and more.  

Be sure to call Carl for more info.
