About this Grainger 52


Here is a rare find, a fast dagger-board blue water cat, a good size, equipped for extended cruising and with so much new kit.  The cat had a thorough refit between 2016 and 2017 including a complete re paint, she has all new sails, all new RAYMARINE electronics, a new generator, essentially a new interior with all new upholstery and much more.  For a fast cat there is so much space inside and out, the cockpit is exceptionally spacious and the covered space is a natural extension to the saloon.

'Optoloi 2' is a Grainger design, the Chincogan 52 being one of their better known designs, and for good reason. With several examples making regular forays into the Pacific and Asian waters, and in at least one case a circumnavigation in progress, this design is well established as great sea boat and a comfortable live aboard cruiser capable of clocking up long mileages while being easily sailed single or two handed.

The boat is Thai registered and fully tax paid.


The port hull is dedicated to the owners.  Full forward is a generous shower, then a generous bathroom with an overhead hatch and opening port and a separate head adjacent to the companionway.  The 7 kg LG washing machine is neatly sited in a locker in this bathroom.  The aft cabin, also with overhead hatch and opening port, is perfect in size with wardrobe, locker and shelf spaces.

The saloon is beautiful, a wrap around sofa, all new upholstery, and nav station share the port side and the galley is a great sea going design. For entertainment, there is a TV in the saloon and each aft cabin.  A BLACK MAGIC stereo system with speakers inside and in cockpit. 

The starboard hull has an aft double cabin, then moving forward, a bathroom c/w head, sink and shower.  There are two singles, the one is athwartships after the bathroom and the other is full forward in this hull.

The fit out is stunning, well crafted teak joinery, foam backed deckhead linings, perfect lighting and classy upholstery.


A good sea going galley up design.  There is excellent refrigeration, 1 freezer and 2 fridges. Freezer and fridge are custom made s/s and the stand alone fridge is a WAECO. All are 12VDC.  PANASONIC 1500 watt microwave.  Three burner gas stove. Double stainless steel sink c/w hot, cold and salt water.
