NOW UNDER CONTRACT.
Originally designed by Mr Edward R Webber of Norge Boats (USA) in the late 1940s, Wotama was built over a seven-year period and launched in 1974. She was owned for 42 years by the legendary Albert Jeays who sailed out of what is now the QCYC and has for her entire life benefited from the love and care of her dedicated custodians. She's most definitely a head-turner with her sweet lines and lovely profile; and when last surveyed in 2020 was noted by the surveyor as "... Built to a proven design and to a professional standard. Its construction is best described as robust".
Presenting in lovely condition throughout she comes with a very reliable and well maintained Ford Lees diesel. She has a good sail wardrobe and rigging both upgraded in 2018. Wotama is located in at her berth in Manly Harbour Qld and is proudly presented for sale by Australiawide Boat Sales Qld.
