Lovingly maintained popular model

Launched in 1986, this 17.7m (LOA) Salthouse Sovereign 54 has been lovingly maintained to a very high standard by her current owners and  she is well equipped throughout.

Her exterior is two pack painted, providing excellent protection for the triple Kauri glassed hull and easier maintenance. The interior is also in fantastic condition with the cabinetry being recently refinished throughout.

A very popular model, the Salthouse 54 includes a fully enclosed fly bridge accessed by internal stairs. The huge wrap around seating area on the flybridge is such a nice space to relax in that the owners regularly dine and entertain here, with side opening windows and a helm console give an excellent viewing range in all weathers to the skipper and guests alike and the conveniently located fridge freezer keeps the refreshments flowing. The electronics include Icom VHF and SSB, Simrad GPS, log fishfinder, depth sounder and radar, Raymarine autopilot, and full engine instrumentation which helps you keep an eye on the twin 600hp MAN shaft drive diesel engines. Triple helm seating gives added comfort for the skipper and his mates with auto-anchoring, a second VHF radio and compass on hand plus wipers ensure visibility is greatly improved.

Great entertainer

In the salon to port you will find a large lounging settee perfect for entertaining and relaxing with guests, the flat screen TV is positioned opposite for viewing comfort. Whilst the starboard side has an entertainment centre and bar complete with another fridge. The entertainers’ galley is well equipped with everything from built in fridge and freezer units, 4 burner gas stove, oven and ample storage. The adjacent dining space flows out through bifold doors into the cockpit area. The layout and level of amenities found throughout make this an ideal entertaining boat.

For overnight stays the accommodation includes three cabins sleeping up to 8 adults. The owner’s forward master cabin has a double bed, plenty of locker space and storage including drawers under the bed base. The head includes a separate shower cubicle, vanity and toilet. The easy-care gloss white surfaces and molded shower give a light and airy feel. The second cabin to port has two single berths with great drawer storage and plenty of room for two. The spacious main bathroom can be accessed from the forward companionway.

Versatile vessel

A single transom door gives great protection from the elements and plenty of storage can be found beneath the cockpit floor. For the keen fisherman she is game rigged and has previously been in survey. Extra rod holders and game poles satisfy the more serious anglers and this versatile vessel offers something for everyone with so much thought going into the systems, storage and design. One of the less mentioned but very convenient features is the outside toilet and shower tucked under the stairwell; great for keeping the fishing mess and wet footprints out of the cockpit.

Special thought went into keeping the overhangs to a minimum so “Enterprise Lady” would fit into the owners 18m marina berth. She really is an ideal family cruiser, corporate charter vessel or would be equally at home chasing marlin. Not often seen on the market, the Salthouse range is luxury cruising and fishing at its best making this a must see boat.
