Details
A TRUE CLASSIC YACHT IN EVERY MEANING OF THE TERM, designed by Herreshoff, built in the famous Holmes yard in Sydney and presented in excellent condition as a result of committed owners.
The hull shows the classic lines and this is further enhanced when boarding the boat, beautiful laid teak decks, varnished cabin and hatches, and other great touches.
The equipment level is extensive and no expense spared in maintaining everything up to date, with new standing rigging in 2016, good sail wardrobe, Andersen winches plus a new Nanni Diesel engine with Autostream feathering prop fitted in 2013.
Down below the saloon has a spacious feel with settee berths to port and starboard, folding table to port side, and stacks of storage too.
For'ard is double Vee Berth, an enclosed bathroom is just aft with Toilet, Shower (cold water) and hand basin plus a quarter berth to port.
The boat has competed in early Sydney Hobart's and still provides competitive racing for the current owner in local club twilight races.
This is a real opportunity to secure a beautiful yacht with great pedigree, in excellent condition and with literally nothing to do but step aboard and enjoy!!
