Kettle Two is lightly used and professionally maintained. The Austin Parker 54 Fly is a very big 54' yacht. The curvy, unmistakable lines of the Austin Parker immediately reveal its character: both inside and outside, elegance and sophistication blend with modern, functional design to place this craft beyond fashion and cliché.
Performance is excellent: cruising speed of 30 knots plus with very reasonable fuel consumption thanks to the combination of the two 900 HP MAN engines, the light weight and the optimized lines of the hull. The 740 gallons of fuel delivers a long range with 159 gallon of freshwater aboard.
On the outside, she has a large cockpit served by a roomy bathing platform and the hangar for the tender. The interior is furnished in a warm, comfortable style, with the mood set by use of orange and brown shades alongside wood, with attractive light-dark combinations that give light and interest to the design schemes.
Quality construction and sophisticated solutions are particularly noticeable in the interiors, such as the spacious saloon furnished with leather sofas, given added prestige by the separate galley located just underneath the companion way leading to the cabins; an elegant steel and glass handrail assists access to the galley and the below-deck accommodation.
The cabins are elegant, finished in leather and wood. The owner’s cabin has the bed at the side and has its own en-suite bathroom, while the guest cabin has twin beds and a separate bathroom. The layout comprises 3 cabins, 2 bathrooms, crew cabin with bathroom, large saloon and separate galley.
The electronics package was updated to Garmin this spring (2020) and a stern thruster was added 2019.
The engine room is accessed from the cockpit by means of a large hatch, while the carefully designed layout of the engines and systems allows trouble-free inspection of all parts.
