|The Hick 31 Toecutter was designed and built in Carbon and foam core composite by leading Melbourne naval architect and boat builder, Robert Hick. Launched in 2003, she saw immediate success with a 2nd overall on IRC in the 2003 Sydney to Hobart Race. Seldom off the podium since, she is probably the most consistently successful yacht in the history of AMS racing on Port Phillip.
Toecutter enjoys an enviable record of achievements including regularly winning the Club Marine Series and ORCV Winter Series, often finishing her races amid the Div 1 fleet that had started 5 minutes ahead. She remains the benchmark in Div 2 AMS racing on Port Phillip and is now offered for sale with the potential to continue her winning ways.
Strongly built to endure the rigours of blue water offshore racing, she is light, fast, stiff and responsive in all conditions. Mast and boom are carbon and her sail wardrobe is complete and competitive. She enjoys a fully optimised AMS rating. She has a practical but comfortable interior that stays dry and offers reasonable headroom. Always 'dry stored' and crane launched since new, Toecutter may be inspected on the hardstand in Williamstown, VIC.
