32' Classic Double-Ended Sloop "Brolga"
Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
Sail around the bay or around the world! Rarely does a yacht of this quality come on the market and in fact the owner built "Brolga" with the intention she would be passed down as a family heirloom. Constructed with meticulous detail from the highest quality materials and fittings to the design of Swiss marine architect Francoise Graeser, a favorite of Lyn and Larry Pardey. Equipped for bluewater voyaging with wind-vane steering, full electronics, excellent sail wardrobe and a reliable 28hp diesel. "Brolga" combines the romance of a craftsman-built timber vessel and the beautiful lines of a classic small passagemaker with all the refinements of modern sailing. She regularly performs well in Twilight racing. Systems are simple but very well put together and allow for easy short-handed sailing.

Circumstances change and "Brolga" must now to pass into new hands. She is presented in impeccable order and is ready to sail away now. We recommend an inspection of this remarkable yacht in Tasmania, the home of wooden boat building.
