|Excellent example of an exceptionally seaworthy design. Very solidly built, in tidy condition and significantly upgraded over the past six years with a new engine and prop, new electric anchor winch, self-tailing winches and much more. "Southern Minx" has crossed the Indian Ocean to South Africa, cruising for 12 months before returning to Western Australia. She is set up for effortless short-handed sailing and would be the perfect choice for someone stepping into their first keelboat.

||Over $12,000 has been spent on Southern Minx in the past six years, including a new engine, exhaust, propellor and batteries. New self-tailing sheet winches have been fitted, along with a new toilet and electronic speed and depth instruments. She has been treated to a custom-fabricated outboard bracket and bow-roller fitting. Most recently a Muir 12V anchor winch was installed. Receipts and documentation for all of the above works are available. A new owner will enjoy trouble-free sailing in a very strongly-constructed, pretty yacht.|
