2006 Activa 51 Motor Yacht

UNDER CONTRACT: The Activa 5100 offers a cruising boat package of extraordinary depth and substance – value without compromise!

Company founder and current President Charles Chang is a respected naval architect and marine engineer who over 20 years ago began production of a range of cruisers and motor yachts under the banner of Hi-Star Yachts.   The design profile would be typical motor yacht style on the outside, but the layout would be as people of this region would expect, a practical, user-friendly ‘entertainers delight’ with an expansive and well-equipped galley on the same level, and three cabins and two bathrooms on the accommodation level below. The designer insisted on generous use of traditional timber, mandatory in a long-range live-aboard cruising vessel, but above all the most noticeable aspect was his seemingly obsessive attention to matters mechanical that saw the boat engineered to an almost sublime level of quality and specification – it would never break down or fail

With Twin 380hp Cummins ‘electronic’ diesels powering through ZF 80A gearboxes and conventional shaft drive to 28” pitch faster propellers results in a in top speed of 18 knots and a most respectable cruise speed of 9 to10 knots.   “Carpe Diem” has Raymarine touch screen navigation electronics and Auto-pilot along with Smart-Craft Engine Data systems. She is also fitted with bow and stern thrusters to make life easy for her skipper.  The galley to port is larger than you might expect with twin Novacool raised fridges, an inverter microwave oven and 2 burner stove and dual sink along with generous bench space. All located opposite the dining table and seating to starboard.  The saloon is very homely, very spacious in the context of lounge and entertainment area, dining area and galley. It has a larger than normal galley and dining aspect – so important in an extended-stay situation. The lounge is a nice combination of wall panels and polished cherry and burl wood finish complementing the U-shaped settee and opposite, the wall-length entertainment module that included a bar and the obligatory pop-up Sony television also.

This Activa has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The owners’ cabin features a generous ‘wood’ theme and was complemented nicely with plush vinyl panelling. Full length wardrobes (complete with auto lighting), mirrors, down- and mood-lighting and an overhead hatch, compliment the queen-size berth that comes complete with a most comfortable innerspring mattress. An attached and entirely appropriate ensuite, complete with separate shower, completed the ‘picture’.  Located aft of this master stateroom were twin-single and double bedrooms, and of course the obligatory house bathroom – all incidentally of the same specification and level of presentation, as that of the master. Standard equipment for the Activa range is a 10.6kW air-conditioning system that nicely cools the whole boat.  As in any cruising motor yacht, the upstairs flybridge level is where you live during the day and so you expect it to be of reasonable proportions. There is a large single helm station at the front of this level as well as a smaller companion helm-style raised seat. The flybridge has a soft-top bimini structure of very ‘substantial’ proportions, and bench style upholstered seating to port and starboard, as well as drinks fridge and sink to port and a large entertaining table through the centre section.

Activa has obligingly managed to incorporate one hell of a lot of living potential into a 16.15m (51ft) hull with a 4.63m (15ft) beam. The rear lazarette below is extremely spacious and easy to access. Offering considerable storage room and a washer dryer with room for an upright freezer, access to the filters, 2500W inverter, 12kVA generator and huge bank of batteries, and of course the engine room. “Carpe Diem” also has 4 solar panels delivering 800w.  With Twin 380hp Cummins ‘electronic’ diesels powering through ZF 80A gearboxes and conventional shaft drive to 28” pitch Faster propellers results in a in top speed of 18 knots and a most respectable cruise speed of 9 to10 knots.     To top-off this great all round boating package, Carpe Diem has a 3.2m Aurora Rib with fibreglass hull and 20hp mercury, both only 3 years old, and a 500kg hydraulic Riviera swim platform that can lift a full size jetski.

She was slipped and antifouled in June 2021 and Serviced April 21. “New Black Flybridge roof in Aug 21” E1610
