Wayward Wind is a proven ocean going vessel built strong for safety and ease of maintenance. Australian registered and duty paid. She sails very well and is powered by a Gardner 5LW main. Capable of being handled by a couple in comfort or take a party of 18 for a day sail, she is a good all rounder. An extensive refit completed in 2012 ensures many years before major works are required. A total rebuild using select solid timbers in a blend of traditional and modern open plan living, quality custom leather lounge suite and daybed (not just foam on plywood). The kitchen and bathroom sport quality tapware and fittings. All suspect steel has been replaced and stainless steel is used extensively to avoid future issues. Also replaced; all rigging, sails, electronics, tender, wiring, 2000w inverter/50A charger and watermaker. New gel cell house batteries 2014, new Caterpillar start batteries 2015. Aft deck is set up for scuba diving with side gates, stern ladder and deck box for your dive compressor. Marina fees are paid up to May 2016 and delivery is available anywhere in the South Pacific or East coast of Australia. It is a reluctant sale as life and other projects are stealing us away. It is time for this much-loved vessel to have a new adventure.
