Australian dealer delivered new in 2006 Rhapsody II is offered to the market in excellent condition, both mechanically and in presentation.  The yacht was refitted in 2016 and has had many upgrades carried out since and has been managed by a professional crew.

This Yacht has been customised by her current owner at great expense to create an adventurous, capable and luxurious long range cruiser ideally suited to the diving or fishing enthusiast.   The yacht was professionally extended with a well-designed cockpit with built in live bait tanks an abundance of storage and refrigeration.  The well-designed cockpit has really opened up the capability and functionality of the yacht Rhapsody II.

The aft deck has full hardtop protection and the wide side decks can be closed off with integral doors to protect against the elements at anchor.  The area features a drop down TV, a day head and a comfortable aft deck table that could seat up to 10 for an alfresco dining experience.  

Walk through the quality Stainless Saloon doors and the volume of this vessel is immediately apparent, the high quality fittings, warm lighting, quality furnishings and luxurious carpet all come together to create the perfect home away from home.  The saloon is serviced by a wet bar to starboard on entry with black stone bench tops and well-appointed ships galley forward saloon to port. 

Walking forward, the size of this vessel is amplified by the master cabin forward on main deck. A genuine king bed with the most amazing vertical windows facing 180 degrees forward to the bow, this has to be a class leading master’s retreat on any yacht of this size and calibre. The designer really needs to be complimented here, this is as much as a sensory experience as it is a comfortable place to rest. The walk down into the marble luxurious en-suite with Jacuzzi and robe area further add to the prestigious master’s enclave.

Below decks there are the two single cabins with additional Pullman for 3 guests per cabin and a VIP that really is equal billing to the master in design.

The engine room and crew are area accessed via the port side aft deck, a very generous two cabin arrangement for up to 4 crew although the yacht is managed comfortably with two on extended trips, Forward of the crew lounge is the sealed access to the full height engine room that has been upgraded and serviced for reliable and long range cruising this season. 

The enclosed wheel house offers a commanding position to manoeuvre or navigate from, an exceptionally quiet space with another day head and lounge area ideal for charting the next adventure.  The electronics and navigation aids are all of a high standard as one would expect on a long range cruising yacht like this. 

The yacht really has to be inspected and experience for the full appreciation of quality size and functionality, she would be equally as comfortable on Sydney harbour for a black tie function as she is catching mackerel north of Lizard Island.  A versatile yacht presented in pristine condition that will open up cruising grounds to the adventurous at heart.

Our Professional sales team welcome you to inspect physically or virtually Motor Yacht RHAPSODY II.
