This Vantare 53 was built by CTF Marine, the same yard that builds the Defevers, and is a remarkably well constructed 3 cabin Pilot House Motor Yacht. This is not a standard Vantare 53. It was custom built by the original owner, with heavier layups and extra fuel and storage capacity for extended cruising to Alaska and Haida Gwaii, getting him and keeping him in prime fishing grounds. She has way too many extras to mention here. Go to Full Specifications to get a full inventory of them all. You will be impressed. The boat is professionally maintained, boathouse kept and in very good condition.
The vendor is the 2nd owner and has enjoyed this vessel for over 10 years. But as he says, " It's time to move on and do other things".
Please note detailed photos to follow within a week.
A spacious boat with a great layout, in good condition and priced to sell. Call us today for a viewing. It will be well worth your while.

The MASTER CABIN is located amidships providing for greatest comfort in a sea way. It features a full queen island walk around bed, complete with reading lamps. The Ensuite attached is roomy and has a roomy separate shower with a safety glass shower door.
Best of all it is accessed from the salon, where the other 2 cabins are accessed from the pilot house. Excellent separation and privacy.
The VIP CABIN is a double Pullman berth, with loads of storage below and throughout the cabin. Also finished in rich teak.
The 3rd CABIN has a spacious over/under bunk also with plenty of storage.
The SALON is spacious, entering through double sliding glass doors. The doors fully retract onto the bulkheads creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor space. Very comfortable couch to starboard, leather tub chairs to port.
Wool carpeting over teak floors. Teak valances with recessed mood lighting. Very warm and comfortable.
Full home entertainment system with very good sound
The Galley is up, making it very comfortable for the cook to mingle with guests while preparing the meal. It's U shaped for safety while under way, with loads of storage both overhead and below.
The galley is also remarkably well equipped with a Wedgewood 4 burner propane stove. This is complimented with a large GE Convection/Microwave oven, big enough to do a turkey, and even has a large dishwasher. No worries about water with not one but two Village Marine Water Makers. And for questionable fresh water sources in suspect marinas, there is a Nature Pure domestic water filtration system that purifies drinking water to delicious perfection. The General Electric Fridge is huge, with side by side doors and freezer drawer below.
