This Elliott 9.6 Wild Card is an offshore capable "sports boat". Weighing 2.5 tonne she is a downwind weapon and with 2 new kites to boot she is ready to be let loose. The keel lifts via an electric winch from 2.1 metres up to 1.6 metres making transit through shallow water and anchoring easy. There is still plenty of stability with the keel up (it has been anchored in 35 knots with the keel up with no problems).
Wild Card is a "racer / cruiser" with a wide powerful lightweight Kevlar foam sandwich hull, deep spade rudder and tall efficient rig. The current owner has carried out an IRC optimisation including 3 new sails bringing the IRC rating to 1.033 which is extremely competitive.
The yacht has a proper interior with bunks to sleep 6, lee cloths, a gimbled two burner metho stove, ice box, newly installed electric head plus 12V plugs for adding a camping fridge.
There is a Fusion blue tooth sound system, Lowrance GPS VHF (with new masthead antenna included ready to be installed) plus a Garmin chart plotter and plenty of 12V charging points throughout the boat.
The current owners have been setting Wild Card up to be sailed double handed with the headsails changed over to hanks, installing a Raymarine tiller pilot and moving over to all asymmetric kites. In the RQYS Wolf Rock Race in 2021 Wild Card was sailed two handed and finished only 30 minutes behind the larger and fully crewed modified Ross 1050 "Mad Jack" after 35 hours of racing giving a glimpse of the potential of this boat..
The boat has an almost complete Cat 2 safety package with the flares, drogue, Jon Bouy all replaced with new in last 2 years. There is also a HF radio that can have the head unit removed for more space.
