Designed by Farr Yacht Design and built by Beneteau, Slipstream is a well set up cruising/racing yacht. She is fast, very seaworthy, in excellent condition, easy to sail and has the capacity to be very competitive in a race. She is very comfortable and can transform into a competitive racing yacht in less than 1 hour. Slipstream is just back from Asia where she cruised for 2 years after sailing in the 2015 Fremantle to Bali race. She was also first in IRC 3 in the 2015 Phuket Kings Cup. She features a beautiful, rich timber interior with luxurious leather look upholstery, has good sails, low engine hours and has been very well maintained. It has been said that the period just prior to the GFC produced some of the best production boats of recent times and Slipstream is a fine example of this. Its up to you how you want to sail her but its much easier to make a fast boat go slow (more comfortable) than to make a slow boat go fast.

Slipstream features an electric halyard winch which doubles as a dinghy winch for effortless sail hoisting and dinghy retrieval. She has solar panels and batteries adequate to run all systems including the refrigeration, assymetrical spinnakers for easy down wind sailing, a quickly removable full sun awning, a stainleel steel gas BBQ and plenty of fuel and water. She has recently been fully re rigged as per insurance guidlines.
