Beautifully maintained and presented pilot house sloop with highly desirable internal and cockpit helm stations hydraulically linked. With her spacious interior, full headroom Meandering is superbly set up for cruising with 4 persons or voyaging to your dream destination. Designed and built by Nick Louis the Challenger range has always impressed with build quality, sea keeping prowess, sailing performance and sleek looks.

Features include a generous galley with large fridge and a freezer, stainless steel stove with oven, supported by an external BBQ, and stainless steel twin sinks. The accommodation includes a private cabin aft, vee berth cabin forward and a quarter berth aft. A separate settee lounge opposite the inside helm and midships dining ensure plenty of space and comfort for dining.

A full set of Raymarine electronics with external repeaters form part of a very extensive inventory.

The 30 HP Volvo Penta diesel sail drive with folding prop has only performed for 700 hours with service records to support.

This Australian designed and built vessel offers excellent sailing performance together with the solid construction required for offshore cruising and this example has been meticulously maintained by successive owners. Full records are available of the surveyed build and subsequent surveys as late as 2015 including all service records since 2011. All equipment data sheets, manuals and books are also well presented.
