48' 2000 Roger Hill Cruising Cutter


Last Updated: 2023-09-08

RAYNAD was designed by Roger Hill Yacht Design Ltd and built in Auckland NZ, the design criteria was to create the ultimate "Go Anywhere" yacht with an emphasis on safety and comfort. There was one other requirement which was that the owners have great visibility from the yacht when underway or at anchor As a result, RAYNAD is a unique yacht with panoramic views of her surroundings.   

Her steel hull features a 7' draft with a bulb keel and a stainless steel skeg hung rudder with a sacrificial lower 30% in the event of impact. The hull has 4 watertight compartments and huge tankage which is incorporated into the keel. She carries 500 gallons of diesel in 4 tanks plus a 50 gallon day tank and 350 gallons of fresh water in two tanks. A 40 GPH Sea Recovery Watermaker along with an 8KW Northern Lights Generator gives you the capability of crossing oceans and cruising off-grid in exotic locations for extended periods. Included in the sale is a high quality Alkin 2.5 hp Dive Air Compressor which is continuously rated for multiple fills to 3500 psi and a compliment of quality dive gear.

This yacht is a tough bullet-proof cruising cutter that is ready for you to explore the far reaches of the globe. She is currently lying in Juneau AK so she is ready to enjoy for northern cruising this summer.
