|Retired from a successful racing career to a cruising life, "Mulberry" has been in the same family for over 30 years. They raced four Sydney-Hobarts as a family and in 2000 father and daughter sailed her across the Tasman to New Zealand. A complete maintenance history is available and this shows that Mulberry has been continuously cared for and upgraded. This is a reluctant sale for owners who love their yacht but who admit that they don't use her now as much as they would like. They will pass a huge range of spares and lots of extra gear on to the next owners.
