|This is a roomy swing keel GRP yacht with HD trailer. Often described as a 'pocket cruiser', she has a large airy cabin with 1800mm headroom, dinette table, galley, loads of storage space and sleeps 6 adults.
Sunbirds are very seaworthy: with her long skeg and ballast, she's self-righting, stiff, and easy on the helm running in difficult conditions. We've mostly sailed her in the open Indian Ocean, Freo to Rotto, Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton and Bunker Bay. Go to http://www. Johncrawfordmarine. Com. Au/trailer-sailer/library/cat_view/27- trailer-sailer-library/56-sunbird-25 to see Bass Strait voyage.
Overall, this is a good example for year (only 4 in WA I believe), with a genuine reason for sale. Please email for more info.
Note: towing weight is about 2600kg all up and currently towed with Nissan Patrol.

||Sunbird 25s seldom come up for sale in WA because there appear to be only 4 in the state. I bought her in Adelaide and what with the $3000 cost of bringing her back to WA, the electronics ($2000), new mainsail ($1200), trailer brakes ($2100), etc., she's priced at 30% discount on cost to me, but with no further use for her I am open to offers.|
