This is an exceptional opportunity to step aboard a turn key IRC winning cruiser/racer with all the hard work done! This vessel is undoubtably the BEST SYDNEY 36 IN AUSTRALIA and is fully IRC optimised with an incredible race record. The Sydney 36 design is renowned for excellent sailing performance, low IRC ratings, and cruisability. This vessel is truely a step above the rest and was specially built and tailored for the great 18 ft skiff champion Peter Sorenson, and was one of the last out of the Sydney 36CR moulds with some very clever modifications made to further optimise its performance. These include a bigger fore-triangle and larger headsails to produce incredible up wind performance, a sugar scoop to increase waterline length when healed without incurring a rating penalty, and most recently a Fred Barrett designed and build carbon bow sprit, to further improve performance downwind. Australian IRC Division Champion in 2011,2018 and 2019 and IRC Australian overall champion in 2008, it really is one of the best performing yachts in Australia both inshore and offshore. Finishing 1st in its division in both IRC and ORCi and corinthian, in the 2019 Sydney to Hobart Race, and 15th overall on IRC and 12th over all on ORCi (being the first yacht without a carbon mast!), this vessel is ready to take new owners to victory!

The current owner of the vessel has been fastidious in his preparation of the vessel, and it presents in as new condition, with a very long list of upgrades done in 2019 including: All running rigging replaced, NEW stanchions and bases, custom carbon foot chocks for the helmsman, all NEW Harken winches, blocks and deck fittings, NEW Spinlock Jammers, NEW Carbon Spinnaker Pole and Bow Sprit, NEW bottom Rudder bearing, Deck re gripped, windows removed and resealed, NEW water bladders, electrical upgrades and NEW batteries, NEW 10 man life raft, NEW B&G System, the list really does just go on! All of this plus the meticulous preparation of the race finished hull creates an exceptional package ready to race.

Inside the vessel, it is clear why the Cruiser/Racer concept works so well! The white interior is nicely finished with moulded headlining and side panels, stylish lighting, and comfortable cushions. With NEW removable pipe cots, the versatility of the vessel is evident and it can be cruised in comfort when not out racing. The accomodation is well appointed with two large doubles aft, a 3rd double in the forepeak, 2 settee berths with lee cloths, and the 2 pipe cots when required. The spacious saloon has setting for 8 in comfort around the varnished timber dinette. The package is complete with private bathroom with toilet and vanity.

On deck, the condition of the vessel is exceptional. Every deck fitting was removed and replaced to ensure there would be no equipment failures while racing. The new non slip finish provides excellent grip for the crew. The sail inventory is as new and lacking nothing with many new sails purchased in 2019. The vessel is also well set up to be cruised shorthanded and has done multiple offshore passages double handed, suggesting this vessel could be an excellent option for the emerging double handed offshore racing scene.

Powered by a well maintained 28HP Yanmar Diesel engine it easily cruises at 6 knots in all conditions.

Having dominated the local racing scene, and being fully Cat 1 compliment, this is an opportunity not to miss!
