New Bern, North Carolina

1986 Senator 43 Sundeck Motor Yacht

Well cared for Senator Sundeck located in New Bern, NC and currently used as a live aboard. The sellers were cruising the boat and stopped in New Bern following the pandemic and have decided to stay. Well cared for and ready for your next adventure. The sellers have decided to move ashore and remain in the area. Side deck and bow fiberglass decks-no teak decks!


Guest stateroom forward with centerline queen, generous drawer and locker storage, four opening port lights and opening hatch overhead. En-Suite head with vanity, sink, electric toilet and shower. Galley to port. Up three steps to the saloon with lower helm to starboard, sliding door to starboard side deck, built-in curved settee, hi-lo table, two rattan chairs, rattan foot stool and entertainment center. Down three steps to the master stateroom with diagonal queen berth creating a much larger stateroom, make-up table with mirror and stool, generous drawer and locker storage, two sliding windows and two large opening windows in the transom. En-Suite head to starboard with vanity, sink, tub/shower, electric toilet and opening port light. Interior is very spacious and has one of the best layouts that I have seen in a Sundeck trawler. Nice!

45’ boat slip available for sale as well. New Bern Grand Marina and Yacht Club.

More Details

Walking onto the side decks by way of the port or starboard boarding gates. The side decks are wide and there are stainless steel handrails and high stanchions and rails making fore and aft maneuverability safe and easy. The bow deck is flat allowing a set up of chairs when watching the sun rise or set. Port and starboard wing doors open into the aft deck. The aft deck is enclosed with a hard top and Sunbrella side curtains. On the aft deck is a table and chairs and a wet bar with storage cabinet and ice maker along the starboard side. The sole is teak. Steps up to the bridge are along the port side. The bridge deck offers a full enclosure. There are helm chairs with excellent visibility and easy access to all helm electronics and gauges. Along the port and starboard sides are settees with storage underneath. Access to the roof top of the aft deck is aft and allows access to the dingy davit and dingy. Along the starboard side are steps into the main cabin area. To port is access into the master cabin. Along the starboard side and aft there is a bookcase and large shelf and a futon settee. Along the port side is open with an entertainment center offset to port looking down over the galley below. The lower helm is forward and to starboard with a pilot house door to the starboard side deck. Access into the engine compartment is through hatches in the salon. Down a few steps (which also open to the engine compartment) is the U-Shaped galley to port with excellent food storage and preparation areas. Along the steps and to starboard are storage cabinets converted with pull put shelves for pantry use. Forward and to starboard is access into the head, shared with the forward cabin. The forward cabin is the largest I have seen in a 43 foot trawler. Center-line queen berth with large shelves along port and starboard and hanging lockers. There is direct access into the head.

The master is aft of the salon and has a queen berth offset to port with built-in night stands with black acrylic sliding door cabinets beneath. There is a small settee aft to starboard and the entertainment center is forward and to port. Access into the private head is forward and port. The head has a separate tub and shower enclosure, large vanity and head.

The interior spaces are large with plenty of natural light and ventilation with overhead hatches, opening ports and sliding salon windows with screens. Beautiful wood floorings thought out the interior.

Located down along the port side the galley features excellent food preparation and storage spaces with separate pantries.
