|This near new 2009 Vancouver 34 has just arrived and is now for sale, with her original owner sailing from England single handed.
Meticulously maintained, she has only been used for 2 years since new and is in an excellent condition, equipped and ready to continue sailing anywhere in the world.
She has been fully imported into Australia with all taxes paid.
Good cruising yachts are born of experience and not fashion and that is certainly the case with the Vancouver 34. The Vancouver 34 is a classic offshore cruiser. Designed by Robert Harris she has a pedigree extending back to the middle 1970s.
Production built with only the best of materials, this design is now proven and popular with over 250 British built Vancouvers cruising worldwide.
The interior is designed for long periods at sea, with good sea berths and a comfortably furnished saloon for relaxation when in harbour. The galley is compact and there is a large oilskin locker conveniently adjacent to the companionway.
The huge chart table has loads of space for all instrumentation and there are purpose made stowage areas for pilot books and charts.
She has a combination of generous freeboard as well as a powerful, heavy duty cutter rig.
The Vancouver 34 is a genuine heavy displacement yacht with full keel for a beautiful motion. Perfectly balanced in any wind, making it easy for the helmsman, she is surprisingly fast under sail, making the Vancouver 34 the perfect choice for serious cruising.
The Vancouver 34 received excellent reviews with the yachting press describing her as "..... There is no doubt, that she is an ideal boat for heading off over the horizon..... " and "... Being many people´s idea of the definite small ocean cruiser.... ".
Very rare to our shores this Vancouver 34 is proving to be a head turner. It's hard to miss her elegant lines.
She comes complete with all equipment that allowed her to sail here.
A truly impressive boat.
