10 preowned yachts that can be yours for under 1 million ringgit
Living the yachting life is not as expensive as it may seem
Here are 10 preowned yachts that are priced under 1 million ringgit right on our website. Sure, the entire world is in the doldrums, but why not make 2021 your year? A new yacht is sure to do just that. These yachts are ordered according to their sizes, and the prices quoted in ringgit is accurate at the time of writing. Now let’s get into it without more preamble.
The only vessel on our website that does not break into the 6-digit price range, the Sunbird Neptune 202 is a power boat that is best used for training new boaters and moving people or goods. Even so, she’s small enough to be placed on a trailer, so she does not need a berthing space at the local dock, which will save on rental. Her owner has maintained her well, and she’s currently hanging out in Penang Island.
She’s a day express cruiser (What does this mean? Check out our article on it!) with 1 cabin, 1 head, and seating capacity for four. This particular Monterey 302 was made in 2003, but don’t let her age fool you as yachts that are well kept and maintained never show their age. She’s perfect for daytrips and coastal cruising, especially around Penang Island where she’s currently berthed.
Here’s one for sport fishers. Silvercraft is one of the best fishing-boat builders for families in the business. The 33 may not be large enough for extended fishing trips, but is able to host guests overnight in her multi-purposed sleeping quarters. For day cruising, she is able to seat up to 8 people. Sport fishing is best enjoyed with your mates, after all.
Sun Runner is a reputable boat builder from down under. This example is berthed in Penang, and though she was finished in 2003, her rigid maintenance schedule shows in the condition of the outdoor upholstery and teak deck. Her engines were recently serviced as well. Unusually, she features twin Yanmar diesels with shaft drives, not stern drives (you can read this article for a better explanation on the difference) which are easier and cheaper to maintain.
A flybridge for less than 1 million ringgit? That’s right. Bayliner is a part of the Brunswick Boat Group, which is the largest manufacturer of recreational boats in the world. This gives the 38 Flybridge a solid reputation. Her classic design is evergreen, and what’s more her owner has a full time crew caring for her in Thailand. You’ll find 2 cabins below decks for a great weekend out on the water.
To be exact, she was built in 2013 by Latitude 8, Thailand’s very own catamaran builders, under the supervision of renowned Australian catamaran builders, Noah Thompson Design. This shows in the plethora of careful designs that make her especially ergonomic, like the galley hot work area that is separated from the saloon, and seating area midships that can be converted into a double bed. What’s more, you’ll find a garage for a tender tucked away neatly as well.
Jeanneau is a highly reputable boat builder from France, and their Prestige line of yachts are especially exemplary. The strongest feature is her flybridge, but this cruiser has many other talents too. 2 cabins and 2 heads make her especially useful, while she has been tastefully appointed with wooden decking and lighter colours to further elevate each space. We are particularly delighted to show this yacht, as her quality and price are noteworthy.
The Silverton 42 is a great convertible for the family. Speed-loving families will enjoy her twin 420hp inboard engines, which enables her to chase prey effectively as well. She features the optional Fish-Pac to add to a sport fisher’s advantage, and the owner has kindly outfitted her with a soft enclosure to better isolate boaters from the elements. Prospective buyers can find her in Penang Island.
She’s all business. The Explorer EV 488 is a craft that is used specifically to ferry people, so her design is economical. Tour operators will appreciate her 44 person seating capacity, while island resort operators will enjoy her twin 350hp engines for a quick turnaround time.
Malaysia may not have a culture of sailing, but that has never stopped true enthusiasts from exploring our seas with just the wind in their sails. This Chantier Amel Maramu has seen many years, having been built in 1979. However, recent upgrades like a new engine was installed in 2011, and all navigation electronics together with a Raymarine hydraulic autopilot have found their way onboard in 2013. For those who enjoy the feeling of ropes in their hands and the simple joy of wind propulsion, she is yacht that is superbly seaworthy, as all Amels are.
Bonus yacht : Pershing 46 │ USD280,500 │ RM1,131,958
At 10% over our cap price, the Pershing 46 must be mentioned as she represents fantastic value for money. Pershings are built with speed in mind, all the while cocooning boaters from the harshness of the waves in luxury. This example was built in 2006 and has a home in the city state of Hong Kong. She is the only yacht on this list with 3 cabins, and twin 800 hp engines. Moreover, her aft saloon features an electric roof, so you can have the wind in your hair or hide away from the sun.
There are reasons for purchasing used yachts, be it depreciation, budget, or even passion. They are all legitimate reasons and concerns. That’s why an honest and down-to-earth broker is necessary.
