|This attractive blue water cruiser offers space, comfort and exceptional seagoing ability all within a superior build and classic style. Launched in 1958 she's regularly plied the coastal waters of the USA from California to Caribbean to Mexico and eventually came into the hands of her current owners who sailed her from California to Australia in 2011. Her arrival here gave her owners the opportunity to make some major refurbishments including new rigging, main mast, new engine and installation of Australian standard electrics. Her hull also received major attention and she now (after her June 2016 haul-out) presents a pristine fibreglass hull on her sturdy timbers, fresh varnishing and newly painted decks and coach house. We are delighted to be able to offer this boat for sale and as such, inspections are invited and can be made by phoning Australiawide Boast Sales Qld in advance.
For the couple or family with blue horizons in their sights this shoal draft classic yawl makes an excellent choice and is enthusiastically broker recommended.
