Comprehensive Cruising Inventory

The Yamaha 33 is comfortable, fast and seaworthy cruising yacht that is more than capable of crossing oceans and fulfilling your cruising aspirations. The Yamaha 33 was designed and built to meet the International Offshore Rule (IOR). The design proved to be very competitive and impressive results were achieved racing in the OSTAR Round Britain Double Handed race and a number of Yamaha 33’s competed in the Transpac to Honolulu.

Step down below and the interior is surprisingly spacious for a yacht of this size. Due to the raised coach house roof, there is a ton of headroom, and the large windows flood the interior with natural light. While standing in the saloon, the windows provide excellent panoramic views. The windows have been upgraded with high quality tinted tempered glass that delivers
a level of clarity well and truly above the standard plexiglass found in most boats.

The interior has been thoughtfully designed and makes great use of the available space. There are a number of really clever design features that combine to make the interior very functional and comfortable. The saloon features two long settees that both make great sea berths while underway. The dining table is removable and stows out of the way on the forward bulkhead, freeing up space to move around. There is a full size nav station with a cleverly designed seat that provides great support on either tack and prevents you from sliding from side to side.

The galley is also full of smart design features that maximise bench space for preparing meals. There is a cover for the twin stainless sinks, a fold down cupboard door and a sliding stove top cover, that all combine to produce a wealth of additional bench space. The Origo 6000 stove and oven are fuelled with metho, so you won’t have to worry about the danger of propane onboard. The refrigeration was upgraded in 2020 to an Isotherm with the highly reliable and energy efficient 12v Danfos compressor.

Accommodation is well catered for with a comfortable and spacious double owners cabin forward, a double in the port quarter, and three singles in the saloon. The bathroom is small but functional with a very cleverly designed vanity top that slides out from the wall.

The electronics package is both modern and extensive. The Raymarine chart plotter has a removable mount and can be positioned inside at the nav table, or in the cockpit on the coach house roof. There is an AIS transponder and a Standard Horizon VHF with a built in AIS receiver. The Raymarine autopilot and instruments were all new in 2016 and the whole electronics package is networked through a NMEA 2000 Seatalk backbone.

Power is well provided for with a total of 290W of solar panels. The main panels hinge off the lifelines and can be positioned to face the sun to maximise efficiency.

The cockpit is well designed for shorthanded, or single-handed sailing, with the primary winches in easy reach from the helm. The cockpit was originally designed for both wheel and tiller steering systems and there are removable panels on either side that allow you to increase the seating capacity when desired. The tiller steering has the big advantage of being able to be folded out of the way while at anchor. The transom features a lovely swim/boarding platform with a ladder and a quality pair of davits to hang the dinghy.

‘Miss Piggy’ has been extremely well setup as a live aboard cruising yacht and has an excellent inventory of top-quality cruising gear. She was originally owned in Singapore and was sailed to Australia in 1996. The current owners have cruised the WA coast and just returned from a cruise in the Kimberley’s. She has been very well maintained and the owners have spent $36,000 on upgrades and maintenance over the past 5 years alone. She is ready to provision and set sail again tomorrow.
