WHAT WE LOVE about this boat...
* top of our list when WE were buying was a strong, safe steel boat with an integral keel to keep our family safe; Iron Will ticks all those boxes
* separate cabins for parents and kids/guests
* everything is solid and well made, nothing is flimsy or wobbly (stanchions etc)
* great design and sea-kindly hull, she sails like a witch!
* not a tippy boat (could play Lego under way)
* ketch rig gives versatile sail combo/easy to short hand
* a reliable engine with low hours
* pilot house for shelter and snug centre cockpit - felt safe and "tucked away" for kids (and adults!)
* big freezer and big tanks meant we could "stay out" for ages
* heaps of storage
* slightly oversized anchor = good nights sleep
* kids loved the big solid pulpit for dolphin spotting
* davits aft - we lifted the tender every night (1 person job)

This is not a project boat, this has been our home for the last 9 months and is ready to step on board and sail away, coastal or offshore.

Remarks
The backstory: In 2016 we decided to take a 12month family sailing sabbatical and wanted a strong, safe boat that we gave us the options of coastal or offshore sailing. The vessel had to be:

safe,
easy to sail,
ready to go, AND
affordable

It took some hunting around but we found the perfect boat in Iron Will. She was ready to go and we also added bits as well (eg our insurers asked for new standing rigging). We stepped on board with our belongings and she's been the perfect home and "adventure capsule" for us for the last 9 months, as you can see from our blog - www. TheSeaStewarts. Com

The kids are now ready to be ashore again so Iron Will is For Sale. She is currently in Hervey Bay Marina and available for inspection and/or daysails (we've also got our Sept 2017 out-of-water survey available). The marina is perfectly located for cruising the beautiful and sheltered Great Sandy Straits and Fraser Island.

We're motivated and ready to sell, out next adventures await. Surveyors report (out of water) from September 2017 is also available.
