|Beautiful and elegant, this 1976 Ted Brewer ketch and cutter rigged centre cockpit Cape North 43, is now for sale.
The design is a fast, weatherly and stiff cruiser with a long fin keel.
Her long waterline, low wetted surface area, excellent stability and ample sail area allow a pedigree performance in all weather and on any point of sail. This is so rare in cruising boats today.
Her design also incorporates a fine bow entry with a heavy developed bustle to effectively reduce separation and provide a stable ride and easy steering.
Just Jane has had the same proud owners for 22 years and they have recently completed a world circumnavigation. She is in exceptional condition having been continuously maintained to a high standard.
She has previously cruised extensively Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, The Fjiordlands and the Pacific.
So this is a unique opportunity to purchase a complete blue water boat that is ready to head off on your dream adventure.
If familiar with Kelly Peterson and looking for such a design this boat will definitely appeal.
