Steber Outsider 44 hardtop flybridge cruiser, this is a huge boat for the bucks. It would make a brilliant live aboard option or awesome coastal cruiser.
Steber Outsider 44 Grand Sport flybridge hardtop cruiser, 88 model, Twin Perkins 250 HP diesel shaft drives, big volume boat and highly optioned with everything you need to go offshore cruising such as; geneset, aircon, bowthruster, good electronics package with late model Lowrance GPS, autopilot, Navman sounder & log, tender with Yamaha outboard, remote spotlight, trim tabs, 240v shore power and solid bow sprit / anchor winch set up. The hull is a proven blue water performer with a massively flared Carolina style bow, deep V entry and a full length keel offering a dry soft ride and excellent tracking in a following sea. With the enclosed flybridge you don’t have to worry about the weather; vision is excellent and the wide reverse chines provide good stability at rest. Wide walkarounds and well placed handrails allow for easy access to the bow. Fishing features include outriggers, rod holders, transom door, bait board and a big cockpit to work from. Where she really shines is the surprisingly spacious layout and complete fitout for cruising; with 3 cabins (2 with bunks) and a fold down settee offering comfortable accommodation for up to 8pax, plenty of storage, draw and hanging space, 2 x large stand-up heads with vacuflush systems & huge separate shower along with generous tank capacities all making it easy to cruise for weeks not days. The all important refrigeration consists of a eutectic fridge in the cockpit perfect for keeping the refreshments icy cold, a full size galley fridge/freezer and a flybridge unit. The icemaker takes care of the mixed drinks. The galley is an entertainers delight with 4 burner stove, nice long benches, plenty of pantry and cupboard storage, an intercom to the flybridge to make sure the helmsman is not forgotten and a microwave oven. We all like to spend time in the cockpit when out and about ; the big swim platform with boarding ladder, extended bimini, transom shower and wet bar makes this a perfect place to relax. When the sun goes down step into the light filled saloon, tastefully finished with polished beech timber. The settee is big enough for 8 people, lounges are long and wide enough for two people to lie down on to watch the 36 inch TV or listen to the upgraded C.D stereo. The overall feel of the spacious interior with high headroom, open plan, light timber and plentiful windows is one of being at home. Two people can work the galley or pass each other in the passage way; this boat is a perfect family cruiser that can easily double up for a big fishing trip with the boys. It is a solidly built, weighty boat that has a practical layout and proven hull, but surprises with rich finishes and inclusions that most boats in this price range simply don’t offer. The overall condition is excellent, the engine room is tidy boasting a neat workbench complete with vice and grinder, everything is well laid out and clearly marked and there is enough room to get around the engines to the important service points and batteries. The new stainless exhausts and other mechanical upgrades along with the meticulous presentation offer clear evidence that the boat has been lovingly maintained. The most recent antifoul and engine service was done in Nov 2017, so this lovely boat is ready for your family to set off on a new life adventure.
