A very well maintained, low hours, single private owner example of this luxurious & hugely capable long range motor yacht. Massive spec including stabilisers, bow and stern thrusters, 2x gensets, air conditioning, Jet tender and so on…


The Trader 64 Sunliner ‘LITTLE MERMAID’ is an extremely well construction and very capable long-range semi-displacement cruising motor yacht from the UK’s Tarquin Yacht Company and the renowned Kha Shing shipyard in Taiwan.

Easily controlled by the smallest of crews thanks to her twin CAT C12 diesels, stern throttle position and hydraulic bow and stern thrusters, she will happily cruise at between 9 and 15 knots in absolute comfort, with her seakeeping managed by fin stabilisers.

Her full air-conditioned large saloon area provides a wonderful space when the weather is less favourable or too hot, whilst the spacious cockpit and flybridge areas provide huge expanses of space and great vantage points.

Having been specifically commissioned for longer-term cruising, she benefits from all the necessary creature comforts including washing machine, dryer, fridge and freezer with an icemaker, 3x further fridges (saloon, cockpit and flybridge), oven, Gaggenau ceramic electric hob, dishwasher and even an ironing board. Her twin 17.5kw generators take ample care of power requirements for all guests and crew accommodated within her four-cabin layout.

LITTLE MERMAID also carries a Williams 385 Jet tender which can be easily launched and retrieved via the flybridge crane.

LITTLE MERMAID has been lovingly cared for by her one owner since new and has only been used as a private boat and never for charter. Her engines and generators have been annually serviced and general maintained since new and yet her engines only have approximately 1,215 engine hours on them.

Her many highlights include:-
• One-owner privately used boat.

Fresh Water:
• Pressure is supplied to the fresh-water system by two pumps, working in parallel.
• Hot water via a 1x 115 litre calorifier.
• Hot water is heated by either heat exchangers from the main engines, or by a 2kW heating element.
• An accumulator tank maintains the pressure and the changeover between the pumps is done automatically.
• A 60 litre per minute AC pump pressurises the system when AC power is available, whilst a 38 litre per minute DC pump acts as a backup.
• Shower outlets are protected by thermostatically controlled mixers.
• Drinking water is distributed directly to a proprietary faucet in the galley, and to icemaker in the saloon.
• Both of these outlets are further protected by in line filters with ultrafine micro-straining, molecular capture and electrostatic removal to ensure the quality of the water.
• Pressure is supplied to the drinking water system by a dedicated DC pump.

Saltwater System:
• Saltwater is bought into the boat via the sea chest in the engine room.
• This reduces the number of intakes to just three, one either side of the keel and underneath the bunk room floor via a manual seacock for deck wash.
• Either intake is large enough to provide sufficient cooling water to both main engines, should the other intake become blocked.
• The sea chest is a GRP chamber, laminated into the hull structure for strength.
• It extends above the high-water line for safety and has an access hatch in the top.
• Inside a strainer filters the water before it is taken to each consumer.
• The consumers are individually plumbed to the sea chest, and each supply line is protected by a valve.
• The consumers are two main engines, two generators and the pressurised saltwater system.
• The pressurised saltwater system supplies the anchor wash, fore and aft deck fire hose connections and the back-up for toilet system.
• It is supplied by an automatic pressure controlled 38-litre per minute pump, situated in forward bilge. Operation of this pump is indicated on Info-Bridge.

Bilge Pumps:
• The bilge is made up of four compartments, separated by watertight bulkheads.
• Each compartment has an automatic bilge pump with a 220ltr. per minute capacity. These function automatically and are powered from the “always on” or “hot” bus part of the DC system.
• They can be manually activated from the pilothouse monitoring computer and the control panel.
• Each bilge is protected by an industrial sensor high level bilge alarm.
• In addition to the dedicated bilge pumps, a 240 litre per minute run-dry emergency bilge pump is run from a main engine. A manifold allows this unit to pump from any bilge compartment. The outlet for this pump is located high in the topsides so it would retain its effectiveness even in case of an extreme list.
• A mimic panel shows the status of the bilge, sump and saltwater pressure pump.

• Fuel tankage: approximately 7,000 litres.

Fresh Water:
• Water tankage: approximately 1,200 litres.

Holding Tanks:
• Holding tank capacity approximately 560 litres, can be emptied via the deck fitting or via an overboard pump out using 2x identical DC pumps.

• 24vDC electric flush marine heads which can use, via a control valve either the high-pressure freshwater or salt water systems. They do not require a macerator meaning there is reduced chance of blockages whilst also being quieter. They discharge direct in the holding tank.
• Showers controlled via thermostatic valves electric pump outs below the shower tray.
• Wash basins with mixer taps.

Heating/Air Conditioning & Ventilation:
• 220vAC Reverse cycle air-conditioning system with two units and outlets in; the saloon, all 4-sleeping cabins and the 3-heads.
• The system operates by circulating water in a closed circuit which can be chilled or heated as required.
• Air handlers with a combined capacity of 72,000 BTU provide individual climate control for each area of the accommodation.
• The chiller unit is located in the engine room and uses two compressor units and a soft start inverter to reduce the start-up surge that can be associated with such systems.
• In reverse cycle mode, the chiller can produce heat (although the efficiency is dependent on the ambient water temperature).
• Bose sound system with speakers to the flybridge, cockpit, saloon and pilot house.
• Sound system to each of the sleeping cabins.
