Peterson 46’s are considered great world-cruising yachts and the 1984 built Skedaddle Again is now for sale. This centre cockpit, blue water cutter has a solid thick fiberglass hull, encapsulated long fin keel with skeg hung rudder and propeller in an aperture.  Together, with a relatively low freeboard and moderate beam it is a very safe, seaworthy yacht in heavy weather that also performs well in light winds.  In this Hillier Peterson 46 version, construction was overseen by Ron Hillier of Australia – these are recognised for their superior quality, redesigned interior and attention to detail.  Below she has the traditional warmth of a classic yacht and is a handcrafted example of a boat builder’s art in rich, solid Burmese teak.  Skedaddle Again was one of the last Peterson 46’s ever built, launched in 1984.

Registered Australian Ship # 851816

We purchased Skedaddle Again in 1997.  After several years of preparing her for a circumnavigation we departed Sydney in 2003.   We have lived onboard ever since and have cruised extensively in SE Asia, the Mediterranean and Caribbean with a forced break in Australia during COVID.  She has received every care and attention during this time – this is reflected in our most recent insurance survey (October 2017) which is available to interested purchasers.  Sadly we have decided to part with Skedaddle and pursue a new adventure in the canals of Europe.  She is conveniently located in Panama to allow you to cruise the Caribbean, venture out into the Pacific or cruise the coasts of the Americas.  We are currently living on board and all systems are working and is ready to step onboard and cruise.
