General Description


Connor and Associates is proud to present Western Isles 159' Western Isles was built, operated and maintained by the Japanese Government until 2001 as an offshore weather research ship.

Since 2001 the vessel has under gone a partial conversion to a pleasure vessel with the addition of considerable alloy super structure, and partial conversion of extensive accommodations.

Maintained in JG (Japanese Government) class until 2002.

She is powered by a 400 RPM, 700 hp Daihatsu engine, with two 400 rpm Yanmar generators and flume tank stabilization, the machinery, engineering is of a quality seldom seen in private vessels. The vessel is currently in “superb" mechanical condition.

She is equipped with extensive high quality communication electronics both HF and Satcom, as well as navigation electronics. Many items installed in 1996.

Built to the highest possible commercial standards at I.H.I Shipyard, Western Isles is ideally suited to conversion and considering the excellent condition of the machinery the vessel only requires the installation of a new interior to be ready for service.

Many interior arrangements are possible and as a luxury yacht, could include an on-deck master suite, guest accommodation for up to 14 plus up to 9 in crew.

With the conversion to wet exhausts the vessel could have helicopter facilities as well as substantial tender storage.

She is located in New Zealand, an ideal location to complete the conversion at reasonable costs, by innovative and talented craftsmen, within a very quick schedule.
