ANTUKA is an Adams 13 cruising sloop which has been extended with the addition of a transom moulded sugar scoop, She is fractional rigged with an Aluminium mast and boom. She has had an extensive offshore racing and cruising history (including Sydney to Hobarts and numerous other offshore races) and has been proven to be a fast, safe & reliable vessel. She is sleek & well balanced and cruises happily & comfortably with a conservative sail plan reaching 8 knots under headsail and triple reefed main in moderate winds while still having a seakindly motion. Or put up all the cloth and go racing!

The hull is of moulded E glass reinforced with polyester resins with an Airex foam sandwich core. Strong and light. This vessel has been built with a large internal web moulding which acts as longitudinal and transverse stiffening to spread the hull, engine and mast loads throughout the hull. The hull is round bilge with a moulded stub keel. The lead ballast is encapsulated in this keel and a vertical lifting keel is boxed into a centre case and has a 3:1 tackle purchase lead back to the cockpit which means easy access to those secluded, shallow anchorages next to the catamarans.

All bulkheads and internal furniture are glassed and tabbed to the hull forming a very strong and robust construction. She has a moulded trunk cabin and the deck flange is glassed and bolted. She has 6ft3in headroom throughout which means no ducking or boat bruises. The solid fibreglass dodger over companionway and large semi-permanent bimnini over the cockpit provide shelter from any foul weather and the beautiful teak folding cockpit table provides a great entertaining area for sundowners with friends.

She is powered by a YANMAR 3YM30 marine diesel coupled to an SD20 leg drive which has approximately 2400hrs and has been serviced regularly and is very clean.

Her current owners have lived onboard with their young family for the past 3 years and have continuously maintained her and made improvements to increase her liveability. Slipped and anti fouled December 2018, through hulls checked, decks painted with Kiwigrip 2017, new 500x500mm v-berth and saloon hatches fitted 2016 and plenty more work detailed below.

Gorgeous conversion from racer to cruiser inside means the new owner will have the speed of a racer outside with a legitimate live-aboard fitout inside. Updated in 2017 for a winter cruise up the coast to the tropics but for sale due to rapidly expanding work and family commitments. Sailed from Albany to Port Geographe Marina (in Busselton) Feb '17 where she currently awaits her next adventure while we continue to live on board and upgrade/repair systems when needed.
