|The Adams 13E "The Longboat" was built to international survey standards by Seahorse Marine in NSW. She is a classic 13 metre design by the famous Joe Adams and is fast, safe, strong, dry on deck and sea kindly.
Joe Adams had a philosophy of designing boats which were harmonious with the sea and achieved this by making them long, slim and with high stability. This allows them to work with the sea, not against it. This boat is a superb example of the craft and truly lives up to this philosophy without sacrificing comfort or performance.

"The Longboat" has sailed to Bali and return, has successfully competed in numerous inshore and offshore races and is a comfortable Rottnest weekender. Well maintained and having had only 2 careful owners she lies in a Fremantle Sailing Club pen which may be available short term to qualified persons.
