The Austral Clubman 8 was a breakthrough design, combining great sailing performance with a clever interior layout suitable for family cruising. She has great stability, a roomy cockpit and so much room below decks in her 27ft. Superbly built and finished to a high level by Austral Yachts SA, this design has many design features such as concealed aft led halyards and controls under a cabin top moulding and was deservedly awarded Australian Sailboat of the Year in 1993.

Her light, airy and comfortable interior has two double berths and two singles with quality fabric upholstery, a fold away teak table plus a fully equipped galley with stove, sink and twin ice-boxes, a compact navigation area, and a private toilet.

Her sailing performance is excellent on all points of sail and she is easy to handle with the convenience of a furling headsail. Her ballasted lifting keel is easily raised or lowered with an electric winch. Quality features such as new Anderson stainless steel sheet winches and a near new Yamaha 9.9hp outboard mounted in a cockpit locker well are just some of the upgrades by this current owner.
Electronics include log, speedo, depth plus a VHF radio and an autopilot. A compass, clock and barometer complete the package.

Light and easy to tow, launch and retrieve from her dual axle multi-roller trailer, the rig is also light and easily raised and lowered so she can be towed to distant cruising waters or regattas with ease. The trailer has just been serviced with new master cylinder, brakes adjusted and wheel bearings repacked. Explore the Whitsundays, Pittwater, The Gippsland Lakes, The Coorong and many other delightful sailing grounds in this great looking trailerable yacht.

This well maintained and presented Austral Clubman 8 is available for your inspection in Williamstown, VIC. For further information or to arrange your inspection, please call Chris Furey on 0410 551 977 or complete the on-line enquiry form.
