Well maintained throughout, this is a clean example of a motor cruiser that has been lightly used. The Skilso 975 Arctic was built in 1996 by Skilso Baatbyggeri AS in Faervik Arendal, Norway. Designed by Rolf Roland the Skilso's 975 is of a heavily reinforced GRP construction further stiffened by bonded interior bulkheads incorporating a forward collision bulkhead. They were marketed as quality build vessels with good accommodation and sea-keeping qualities. The hull and superstructure consist of one-piece mouldings bonded together and finished with blue topsides and white decking. The aft deck, bench seating and bathing platform are finished in teak.

Within the roomy accommodation there is a flexible layout plan with 4/6 sleeping berths available. With non-smoking owners, the accommodation is modern, clean and fresh with excellent stowage thoughout. This is a versatile layout with the wheelhouse and dinette galley on one level. The two helm position is to starboard and a single pilot seat to port, carpeted and finished in polished combination of solid & veneer teak. The dinette table has the option to convert into a double berth. The forward main cabin is large with a horseshoe shaped settee and central table which can quickly be converted into a bouble berth. The spacious heads is to port and is finished in easy-clean internal mouldings. The Jabsco marine toilet evacuates into the holding tank and there is a generous wash-hand basin with mixer tap and separate shower head. Located under the wheelhouse and accessed via the 'crawl-thru' in the forward main cabin is the aft permanent double-berth.

Broker's Comments

Built to a high standard of workmanship (Norwegian) that is designed to last, this is a popular spacious motor cruiser that offers generous levels of comfort and luxury with plenty of stowage for long voyages.

She is an excellent all-round family cruiser for Inshore waters or Inland waterways, with a low air draft for canal bridges etc.

The current owners are offering a cleanly presented boat as an immediate sail-away package, with the reassurance of up-to-date maintenance and servicing.

A very nice example of an attractive Skilso Arctic 975 Luxury Motor Cruiser.
