Laurent Giles 29ft Classic Timber Yacht
Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
Galatea-M is a modified (2ft longer) Normandy Class from the board of the famous yacht designer John "Jack" Laurent Giles.

Professionally built in 1958 as a Sydney to Hobart racer. She proved her worth in 1962 by placing 3rd overall and 1st in Div 2 in the great ocean race.

She is strongly constructed of full length splined Oregon carvel planking above the water with Teak below. She has a teak coach house - painted and dynel sheathed - and teak laid decks.

After a major refit around 2000 her surveyor reported that she was "at the time of the survey in excellent condition and in all respects a virtually new vessel".

Her current owner has continued a well documented ongoing maintenance program and is undertaking a cosmetic 'face lift' ready for her new owner. Lying Port Hacking, she is now regularly used for recreation and occasional twilight racing. For more information please contact Yacht Sales Australia on 02 9969 2144 or email sales@yachtsalesaustralia. Com
