|'Sababa' has raced extensively in Australia and New Zealand for the last decade and was formerly named 'Morning Mist' in Australia. Alf Neate raced 'Morning Mist' at the Kodak Asia Pacific Championship and Sydney-Hobart Race in December 1992 and achieved outstanding results. 'Morning Mist' won first in class and second overall in the Sydney-Hobart and placed second in the IMS fleet for the Asia Pacific Championship.
Extensively refurbished within the last five years and particularly the last twelve months, the yacht has been tailored to cruising for her owners who have sailed to Asia from New Zealand two handed. The yacht has been re painted inside and out, all deck hardware replaced, including new winches, and the interior re worked to suit comfortable living.
