"Running Free" is a superb Pilot House (cutter rigged) blue water cruising yacht.. The owner cruised this USA registered vessel singlehanded throughout the Pacific and across the Tasman Sea to Hobart in Tasmania.
Designed by Dudley Dix and built to the highest standard (the round bilge steel hull has the finish of moulded f/glass) in South Africa. Attention to detail is outstanding. Below deck the saloon is light and bright with all round vision. Amidships is a large double private cabin with another private double forward. Aft to starboard is a semi private single cabin which doubles as the work shop. On deck from stem to stern the layout, the systems and the level of equipment is all designed for efficient, short handed, blue water cruising.
Realize your dream. "Running Free" is ready in all respects (tanks are full) to put to sea and transport you safely and comfortably around the Aussie coast or across the oceans of the world. We look forward to showing you on board.
All Australian import taxes have been paid. (HIN1146602)
