The Bluewater 520 Pilot House Cruising Yacht

Past Project

52 ft Cruising Yacht

When you choose to move up to the 52 foot class of yacht, you are entering luxury territory, where comfort, speed and convenience all bear equal measure in your investment decision. 52 foot yachts are characterised by  their ability to travel great distances in the open seas, and by their greater efficiency in the water.

The Bluewater 520 Pilot House Cruising Yacht has a Bruce Farr designed hull, with Peter Lowe superstructure and interior design. It has a raised living area, or Pilot House, making it very comfortable and convenient for long journeys with guests. The aft cockpit and cabin configuration features an owner’s stateroom, for a true luxury experience at sea.

The 520 has a number of special features to make it a highly versatile craft. It is designed for shallow anchorages, can cruise at racing speeds, and has a twin cockpit. Each 520 cruising yacht is custom built, truly a one off especially for you. As with all Bluewater yachts, it’s construction values and build quality are well ahead of anything the elements can muster up, so the 520 will prove to be a long lasting investment.

Bluewater’s foray into the 52-foot class of yacht – with the Bluewater 520 Pilot House – affords you the opportunity to invest in luxury and the ultimate cruising experience. The true pilot house deck configuration offers you a raised living area with the convenience of internal steering and internal helm joystick control, as well as a large chart table/office. You can travel great distances in open seas with efficiency, panoramic views, and live-aboard ease.

Of course, your 520 is yours and yours alone, as Bluewater customises the design to fit your needs and desires. Based on a Bruce Farr-designed, high performance GRP cruising hull, the 520 Pilot House includes the added convenience of an optional hydraulic lifting bulbous keel. This makes the yacht perfect for cruising shallow anchorages, such as Lake Macquarie and Queensland’s Broadwater, as well as any tricky ports throughout the world. And if you like to race, the Bluewater 520 is the perfect yacht for entering local and offshore competitions.

The cockpit can be fully enclosed with drop down side and rear clears, protecting your guests from the elements by a built-in dodger and sun roof. You can also heat or cool the cockpit and screen it from insects. Retract the roof to sail in both fine and foul weather. For maximum comfort, the seats on deck are long enough to lie on, and all controls lead to the twin helm station, which is separate from the guest cockpit. Seven guests can sit in the forward cockpit away from the action while still enjoying the exhilaration of sailing.

The lavish three-cabin layout, with interior design by Peter Lowe Design, gives you and your guests an astounding amount of space to live at sea with the comforts of home. The owner’s stateroom is aft with a king-sized bed, hanging locker space, his and her corner seating, a dressing table, built-in washer/dryer, and an ensuite head with separate shower area. Additional options include an extra seaberth, office, and tool storage area.

The large saloon seats up to ten guests, and a large U-shaped galley contains a full height front-opening refrigerator/freezer. If required, the galley can even be extended to the full width of the hull.

In creating the 520 yacht, Bluewater has remained committed to the highest standards of strength and safety, setting new benchmarks for state-of-the-art luxury, quality, versatility, and performance. This commitment to safety includes built-in bulwarks, Kevlar-reinforced bow sections, and stainless steel fuel tanks. For high performance, the 520 includes a 7/8 fractional rig, and you have the option of a resin-infused hull layup. The elements are no match for the quality of the 520’s construction, making it an investment that you can count on for years to come.

In the Bluewater 520 Pilot House Cruising Yacht, speed meets comfort unlike anything you have experienced and will give you and your guests absolutely unforgettable adventures.
