|Australian registered, proven blue water sailer, meticulously maintained, steel hull. Professionally built steel hull, sandblasted, zinc, 2" insulation to waterline. No chine bars. Built at Ballina Boat Building Industries, 1984.
Has been our home for 32 exciting incredible years. Beautiful rosewood interior, modified interior design to suit permanent live-aboard. "PP" has a huge storage capacity allowing us to stay at sea for months at a time.
We've sailed her from Ballina up the east coast and around to Darwin. She's taken us to Indonesia for three trips, the last one we entered the Bali to Jakarta race then continued on a 3 year trip taking in Thailand, Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka. She's a beautiful comfortable boat and she's handled everything the weather has thrown at us.
We increased the mast height to give us a larger sail area and she sails beautifully. The shallow draft allows you to get into places that usually only a multi hull can manage.
Unfortunately our sea adventuring days are over, old age gets to us all!! and it's time for someone younger and adventurous to take over "PP"
"PP" is currently residing at the Bundaberg Marina. To view her, please email us to arrange an appointment.
Initial preferred contact by prospective buyers via email please.
