A beautiful liveaboard cruiser, capable of cruising globally, up and down the Australian coastline or even competitive club racing. Launched in 1990 and constructed in GRP with balsa core, Artful Dodger's accomodation consists of 2 generous double cabins, with aft quarter-berth for additional sleeping accommodation (or extra storage). Designed by renowned designer Joe Adams and built in Victoria by Trewartha Boatbuilders, the Artful Dodger is a round-bilge, sloop-rigged, shoal-draft yacht with an aft-cockpit, skeg-hung rudder (for safety), and a long fin keel with a cutaway forefoot (for better manoeuvrability and access to most anchorages and channels).

Powered by a 70HP Toyota 2.2 L diesel so parts are never a problem. The engine drives a stainless-steel 3-blade Autostream feathering prop.

Cruising sails, Main (with new lazyjack bag), Headsail (on a Profurl Furler), Staysail, Stormjib, MPS (in Sock) are by Evolution Sails

Electrical systems have all been updated.

Muir reversing anchor winch with Auto Anchor chain counter controlled from the cockpit or foot switches at the bow.

Cockpit protection provided by Spray dodger, Bimini and Roll-down clears protecting the entire cockpit. The bimini houses the solar panels and extends to davits. A duckboard provides easy boarding access.
