Designed by the renowned Alan Wright, and built to a very high standard in NZ, the Lotus 10.6 remains a highly sought after cruiser/racer. Boasting a remarkably spacious interior and cockpit, these vessels are ideal family cruisers, or could even be utilised as a comfortable liveaboard. With their impressive turn of speed and offshore capability, the Lotus 10.6 has also excelled on the race course, and are seldom off the podium. This vessel is an impressive example of th design and was one of 5 Lotus 10.6's imported into Australia with the highly desirable wheel steering configuration. The current owner purchased the vessel in 2008 and has been fastidious with the vessel's maintenance and upgrades. The major upgrades include NEW 2020 STANDING RIGGING, CHAIN PLATES UPGRADED, AND FULL MAST SERVICE, NEW 2020 PROP SHAFT, CUTLASS BEARING, VOLVO SHAFT SEAL, AND SLIPSTREAM 3 BLADE FOLDING PROP, NEW 2019 RAYMARINE AXIOM 9" CHART PLOTTER AND INSTRUMENT POD, 2019 PROFESSIONAL RE-SPRAY OF THE TOPSIDES, NEW 2018 STEERING CABLES, NEW 2014 30HP LOMBARDINI DIESEL ENGINE, 2014 FULL PROFESSIONAL REFIT OF THE GALLEY INCLUDING CORIAN BENCH TOPS AND NEW CABINETRY, the list goes on! Having been a very successful competitor in the Hobart racing scene, the vessel has podium finishes both offshore in the Launceston to Hobart Race, and in almost every inshore race series held on the Derwent. This, combined with all the cruising amenities one could want such as a generous fridge and hot water, makes this a vessel not to miss!

Stepping inside, the spacious interior is a modern mix of clean white finishes and timber trims, giving the saloon a light and airy ambience. To port is the generous timber dinette with seating for 8 in comfort. The well appointed galley is aft, and is sure to impress the fussiest chef with its quality Corian bench tops, top loading fridge, 3 burner gas stove with oven, stainless steel sink with H/C water, and extensive storage. The accommodation is ideal for cruising with family and friends. Forward is a generous double berth. There is also a honeymoon double quarter berth to starboard. The dinette can lower down to create a 3rd double in the saloon, with a single settee berth opposite when additional accommodation is required. The package is complete with private bathroom with manual toilet, vanity, and H/C shower.

On deck, the vessel is very well set up for both leisurely cruising or the full race crew. With all controls lead aft, self tailing primary and cabin top winches, Raymarine autopilot, furling headsail, and mainsail in a boom bag with lazy jacks, the vessel is easily sailed shorthanded. The new Nav Pod with Raymarine Axiom Chart Plotter is a great addition, and the vessel also features the modern Raymarine i70 displays for Depth and speed in easy view. There is good access around the side decks, and an electric anchor winch on the bow, with easy anchor storage when racing. This vessel also features an extensive inventory of both racing and cruising sails.

This vessel is powered by the NEW 2014 Lombardini 30HP Diesel engine with just over 700hrs on the clock. This provides excellent reliability and easy cruising at 6 knots.
