Watermota Sea Panther 4-cylindar 34hp diesel based on Ford 1600cc engine is coupled to a Hurth Vee drive gearbox. Current engine is, (according the previous owners), a reconditioned one which they had installed in 2001 and which had about 500 hours on it when purchased in 2006.

Since then engine has been used for a further 2,605 hours during the current ownership.
Professionally serviced at the end of every season, (it has never once not started nor has it ever stopped in current ownership).

Easily manages 6kts through the water at 1,800-1,900 rpm.
Propeller shaft mates to a flexible coupling at the gearbox and drives a 2-blade prop.
Current Volvo shaft seal was installed in July 2016, when the cutlass bearing and Vetus rubber couplings were also replaced.


4 x 12V 100 AH lead acid batteries (all new in 2021).
Electrical system is currently being upgraded (April 2022) to 3 x 12V 100 AH lead acid batteries for domestic use and 1 x 12V 100 AH lead acid battery for the main engine starter, with a new master switch.

Shore power is currently being upgraded with a marine-grade external shore power socket fitted in the cockpit, with power going through a RCD.

Flexible (Photonic Universe semi flex) 150 watt solar panel was fitted to the top of the bimini in 2018. That, together with charging from the main engine when motoring (normally about an hour per day), provides sufficient power for all extended cruising needs, including running the fridge 24/7.

The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.

Owners Comments

1979 Camper & Nicholson 35, Mark V. Hull No. 178 out of a run of 228. She was built to a Lloyds 101A certificate making her one of a select few among these sought after and ruggedly built world cruisers.

My wife and I have owned her for nearly 16 years (since July 2006); we bought her in Lisbon, Portugal for €60,000 and kept her there (Belem Marina) for the next 4 years. The previous owners had owned her for 18 years, home-porting her in Lisbon. In 2010, we moved the boat to Spain (Sant Carles Marina in Sant Carles de la Ràpita) and then in 2012 to Italy (Marina Lepanto in Monfalcone). In 2016, we started more extensive cruising, first along the Croatian coast and then, over 4 years, around the Greek mainland and islands. Each winter in Greece the boat has been stored ashore for 6-7 months.

The boat has been professional maintained every year in a boatyard throughout our ownership at least, with many upgrades as well. She has not been involved in any accidents during our 16-year ownership, and I am not aware of any accidents during the previous 18-year ownership.

Insurance survey 2021.
