Van De Stadt Pionier Perfect for that solo circumnavigation
Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
The perfect pocket cruiser for solo offshore adventure or simply coastal cruising. 'CA VA' was built using the best materials and has competed in three Fastnets, reportedly five Atlantic crossings and sailed from England to Australia in 1981. All equipment to go again, including Hydrovane self steering, autohelm and sextant.
She underwent a 13 year out-of-water restoration completed in 2006 with new engine, PSS shaft seal, new wiring, new electrc windlass, new autopilot, some new sails, and interior refit to a very high standard.
Since then I have sailed her extensively on the East Coast and in Tasmanian waters and renewed all rigging, boom, sheet winches, anchor & chain, GPS/MFD, solar panels and batteries plus a new yankee jib and storm trysail.
A survey in October 2015 valued the boat and equipment at $63,000 and the Insurers accepted an agreed value of $55,000. Boat slipped and anti-fouled mid December 2016 - when 50m of new anchor chain and new gypsy to fit installed. New boom with slab reefing system fitted March 2017.

Open to sensible offers - my main concern being to find a responsible new owner who will appreciate this boat's qualities. Buyer will have free use of fully mantained mooring in one of Tasmania's most sheltered bays for 12 months if required, and I can keep an eye on boat if new owner is absent.
