Huon pine sloop in excellent condition. Attention (and money) have been lavished on this classic Tasmanian yacht and she participated in the 2017 Australian Wooden Boat Festival. If you love traditional lines and timber heritage but don't want the work of a refit, "Whimbrel" fits the bill. The owner has spent the best part of $100,000 to preserve and upgrade a lovely example of Tasmanian maritime history and among other things, she now boasts a new engine, new rig and new sails. "Whimbrel" is set up for comfortable cruising and is ready to take you sailing now.
