Symphonie is a desirable later Nauticat 33 with the shoal draft keel, perfect for exploring the East coasts shallower waters. Her layout is the best combination we have seen, offering an offset double aft cabin with en suite combined with a comfortable wrap-around wheelhouse settee. She is presented in very good condition with recent thorough engine and mechanical overhaul, below decks her varnish work is excellent and is complimented perfectly by new luxury fabrics. Ordered by her original owner as a sloop rig without the mizzen creating a more sociable aft deck however one could easily be fitted if desired.

The accommodation offers up to 7 berths in 4 cabins with good standing headroom throughout and is attractively finished with rich teak linings, furniture and soleboards all in superb condition for their age. This is complimented throughout by premium quality modern soft cushions (all new including foam 2015) with matching curtains and scatter cushions.
FORECABIN: Twin V berth with infill to form a double berth, stowage beneath berths, useful eye level enclosed shelves and hatch to foredeck. Additional storage space is provided by the hanging locker opposite the heads compartment as you enter.
HEADS: Separate compartment to port currently fitted with a wash basin and storage lockers, it would also be possible to adapt this compartment either to have a marine toilet or for use as a shower area if desired.
LOWER SALOON: Dinette seating area to port which converts to form a small double berth, with excellent stowage in various lockers and cupboards.
GALLEY: Linear galley to starboard equipped with a stainless steel 2-burner gas cooker with grill and oven, double basin stainless steel sink, 12v top loading refrigerator and ample storage in various cupboards, drawers and lockers.
WHEELHOUSE: Fitted with a large and very comfortable U-shaped settee to port with dining table and chart storage area forward, this could also be used as an occasional berth and is slightly raised to improve visibility when relaxing in harbour. Helm position (a pedestal seat could be fitted if desired) with instrumentation and storage unit to starboard. Excellent visibility and ventilation provided by the large wheelhouse windows and sliding sunroof. Good stowage provided beneath dinette seating and between the sound proofed engine compartment and the wheelhouse sole.
AFT CABIN: The cosy and welcoming owners cabin is surprisingly spacious for a yacht of this size and is fitted with an offset double berth, small seat and storage areas. This layout also features a well proportioned en suite located to starboard fitted with a marine toilet, shower, wash basin and storage locker.
GENERAL EQUIPMENT: Pressurised hot and cold water is supplied throughout via a gas instant water heater from the 400L freshwater capacity. Eberspacher diesel fired warm air heating system. Stereo radio/cassette system (could be easily upgraded to a modern Bluetooth/Ipod/CD system for minimal cost) in saloon with fitted speakers. Clock, barometer and oil lamps in wheelhouse.
EXTERIOR: Raised aft deck with helm position and twin bench seat, Symphonie was specified without a mizzen from new and this transforms the aft deck in to a great place to relax and entertain alfresco. Wide side decks and all-round teak and stainless steel rails lead fore and aft, with midship gates for easy access. The teak decks appear to be in very good condition for the year with plenty of depth and few signs of serious wear.
Located under the wheelhouse sole, Ford Lehman 90hp 4-cylinder inboard diesel engine. Freshwater cooled via heat exchanger. Single lever controls at each helm with electric start. Shaft drive with Stripper rope cutter (new 2015) to 3-bladed fixed pitch propeller. Full engine instrumentation.

In 2014 the engine was removed and had a complete re-build including all new pipework, reconditioned alternator and an upgraded Tides Marine shaft seal. The engine room was also improved at this time by installing a custom dual electric fan ventilation system both to suck in extra air and clear hot air from the compartment. The engine is in excellent cosmetic condition, is showing 1,268hrs running since new and has been faultlessly reliable for her current owner.
