Want to do the 75th SYDNEY-HOBART and then the January 2020 IRC Nationals in Hobart?
A very popular MBD (Sydney) 36 design all fitted and virtually ready to go for competitive inshore and offshore racing.
Professionally built and regularly raced out of Hobart this great boat has been continuously upgraded by fastidious owners and is extremely competitive under IRC (Sydney-Hobart) and AMS (Melbourne to Hobart) as recent winning results confirm. (see below)
The boat has been used by its very competitive owners as a race yacht but is fitted in such a way that it is also a very comfortable cruiser, and easily manageable short handed, you simply change the gear on board by adding the full set of cruising cushions and the cruising saloon table making it ideal for families.
FAMILY CRUISING MODE, the large cockpit is ideal for lazy afternoons and evenings at anchor, going below, the saloon has a very light and spacious feel about it with "cruising" folding timber table (easily removed) two good settee's allowing eight people to sit here, two separate aft double berths, a double vee berth in its own cabin then an enclosed bathroom with toilet and hand basin. The galley is well appointed, plenty of storage, stainless sink with fresh water, large ice box (functions very well), and an as new 2 burner gas stove with oven. The nav station is also very functional and perfect for the cruising owner too. Total accommodation is 12 berths utilising the pipe cots which fold discreetly away when not in use. A set of dedicated cruising sails in very good condition are also included
SERIOUS RACING MODE, a very easy transition from cruising, remove the plush cushions, remove the folding leaf table, put in the racing bunk cushions including the pipe cots, tie the cloths up in the aft doubles and settee berths, add the carbon fibre racing table, offshore safeties if necessary, racing sails including kites then with a bit more tweaking WHISTLER has now become a very competitive racing yacht whether inshore, regatta racing or serious offshore.
The electrics have all been upgraded to the B&G H5000 system new in 2017, the sail wardrobe is massive, and the rest of the gear list is extensive.
Presented in EXCELLENT CONDITION due to the maintenance programme set by the very experienced owners and with constant gear upgrades including sails, WHISTLER is ready to go.
