HALF SHARE AVAILABLE
Now Reduced! We have a unique opportunity to purchase a HALF SHARE in this actively campaigned and superbly maintained Beneteau First 38s5 sailed out of Sandringham Yacht Club on Port Phillip. The other partner races the yacht most Saturdays and in the Festival of Sails Regatta in Geelong each January and you would be welcome to sail with him at those times. The yacht is otherwise available for your exclusive use to race on Sundays, Wednesday mid-weeks, Thursday night twilights in summer months or for cruising at any time of the week you choose. The two current partners have owned the yacht on this basis for many years and now one of the partners wishes to move on.

The Beneteau First 38s5 is a true classic with a stylish and roomy interior. She sleeps six, two in the main saloon plus two double berth cabins and two enclosed toilets with showers. It has wheel steering, a functional and practical deck layout, a 30 hp diesel engine, galley with stove, oven and fridge, an electric anchor winch and a full complement of required safety gear to making the sailing safe and fun. Some new sails were purchased in 2018 to keep the yacht up to speed and new upholstery was recently fitted throughout.

An excellent performer, this fractionally rigged, wheel steered yacht has been a regular Divisional Club Champion. As a HALF SHARE owner you could race with the other owner and crew, or make up your own crew of family and friends and just enjoy cruising or racing this beautiful yacht as your own but with only 50% of the outgoings associated with full boat ownership. She is berthed on the yacht club marina for easy access and you would enjoy the majority of usage.

CONDITIONS: Suitable sailing experience and boat handling skills along with an amiable nature are required, together with Senior membership of Sandringham Yacht Club, Australias premier yacht club as recently awarded by Sailing Australia. We can assist with the membership process and would be happy to discuss with you the many benefits of Sandringham Yacht Club membership.
