|This Tom Whitfield designed classic gaff rigged cruising cutter was launched new in 1998. She is a robust cruising yacht, ideal for long haul short handed cruising and coastal passage making or just a lazy day with family and friends on the bay. Pretty as a picture, she attracts admiring comments wherever she sails.
Planked in rare Huon Pine and featuring a traditional gaff rig with an 8ft bowsprit, she employs modern cruising systems such as a furling headsail and two-speed winches making her easy to sail. Her 6ft draft and long keel means she tracks true and her 75hp Yanmar diesel engine with long range (400+ Litres) fuel tanks will get you home when the wind dies out.
Below decks she has a roomy and comfortable interior with 6ft 4in headroom throughout. Cabin ports and a traditional butterfly hatch provide plenty of light and good ventilation. A solid Huon Pine saloon table is a special feature. There is a well appointed galley with gas stove and oven, a 12 volt fridge, a fully enclosed marine toilet with hot & cold shower plus a cockpit shower for an after swim rinse. Electronics include Log, Speedo, Depth Sounder and a VHF Radio.
This eye catching classic is a tribute to the shipwrights art and has many appealing features. She has been well maintained and enjoyed by her original owner who now seeks to move on to other ventures so she must be sold and is offered at a fraction of her build cost.
