" Rock Steady " is an extensively restored, timeless 1985 55' Oceans Yacht Super Sport

Powered by twin 735 HP Detroit 8V92 Diesel Engines

Two 15KW Westerbeke Generators

******Seller is in possession of his new boat ******

A-plan below deck layout includes three staterooms, three heads and deck house galley. She'll cruise comfortably at 25 knots and top out at 30 powered by twin Detroit Diesels. Her cockpit is 130sq ft with ample space to fish.

She was recently refitted as a live aboard but retains all the character, charm and more importantly the functionality of an offshore fishing machine!

The galley has be extensively modified with new cabinets, surfaces and appliances. The main salon has all new furniture, a retractable flat screen TV and all new head linings. All three staterooms are extremely spacious and have been restored to their former glory with ensuite heads and separate showers.

The vessel has recently arrived at Jarrett Bay Boatworks for a scheduled haul out and routine maintenance. She currently sits on the hard.

The list of works that have recently been completed by her owners is extensive and too long to list. Full details and photos are available on request.

Owners are motivated to sell so bring ALL sensible offers and conversations!

Owner's Intro

While Ocean Yachts Super Sportfish models have historically won plenty of fishing tournaments due to their superior performance on the water, the new amenities we have added now make the Rock Steady a great live-aboard option as well. Too many to name, but here are a few interior updates.

New appliances replace original equipment, including under-the-counter freezer and refrigerators. Smooth surface, 4 element electric cooktop, and over-the-range, low-profile vented microwave, together with all new cabinets, sink, and quartz countertops provide an updated and fully functional galley, and create an open-air, easy access for entertaining guests in the salon and dinette areas.
Custom DC, and dimmable AC mood lighting showcase improvements. New upholstery, blinds, furniture, headliner, textured vinyl wall coverings, waterproof carpet and stone polymer flooring restore freshness throughout the vessel. Macerator pumps have been rebuilt, and holding tank and sump well pump have been replaced. Freshwater pump and 30-gallon pressure tank have also replaced previous generation equipment, so that water pressure is quiet and continuous, rather than noisy and pulsating.
We have lived on the Rock Steady for almost two years now, and plans have changed such that we offer her for sale. A documented, comprehensive survey, conducted by a team of professionals (including the engines and gears during sea trial), and before-and-after pictures of her extensive refit are available to interested parties upon request.
