Before he designed "Rani" the very first Sydney to Hobart winner, Victorian born A. C. "Archie Barber" designed "Talitha" later to be renamed "Tahua". She's a pretty little boat with a big sailing history having adventured through the Tasman sea, the South West Pacific Ocean and the Arafura and South China seas, and everywhere in between.
She's in reasonable condition throughout for her age and as usual with traditional timber yachts, needs an owner who's enthusiastic about maintaining her.
She offers a large cockpit and cosy interior capable of sleeping four people, good headroom below and above all, exceptionally sturdy construction. She comes with a 2001 model Yanmar diesel, has considerable sail area (360 sq ft) for a boat her size and is beautifully balanced with 40% ballast ratio.
Located in Manly Harbour Qld and available for inspection, her new owners will not only possess a lovely sailing vessel but nearly 80 years of colourful sailing history, much of it well documented by her current and previous owners.
