The Bruce Farr designed and Binks built 38' Farr 11.6 is a fast cruiser-racer, equally at home on the club race course or leisurely cruising the coast and bays. Designed for all-round fast sailing without the design constraints of rating rules, these yachts have a comfortable motion at sea, are easily handled and rewarding to sail. Sister Farr 11.6s have successfully completed Sydney-Hobarts, Trans-Tasman and Melbourne - Osaka races while this one has enjoyed club racing successes. This 1992 built model has since been structurally upgraded for offshore sailing in consultation with the Farr Design office with additional longitudinal frames and glass work in the keel floors.

Featuring spacious, comfortable, timber trimmed accommodation, there are three double berths plus a settee berth while the dinette / saloon table lowers to form an additional double berth if needed. There is good headroom throughout, a well-equipped galley with two fridges, a gas stove with griller plus a microwave oven and plenty of well organised storage. The top of the port side fridge forms the chart table with electrics, radios and navigation equipment all nearby. The fully enclosed head compartment has a Lavac vacuum toilet with vanity basin and hand-held shower. A full suite of electronics includes a powerful Raymarine 6000 linear drive autopilot with remote controls while her Kestrel HF and Navman VHF radios will keep you in touch.

The yacht is equipped for easy short-handed sailing or fully crewed racing. She has a fractional rig and all controls are led back to the cockpit via a series of rope clutches. The headsail is conveniently stowed on a Furlex 200-S furler while her spinnakers ensure exciting downwind performance. She was upgraded with a new Volvo Penta MD2030 30HP diesel engine with sail-drive in 2003. The 240v shore power system has an integral battery charger and a 4kv Inverter powers the Microwave oven.

Race around the buoys on the weekends or enjoy more social midweek or twilight events, cruise the coast or just enjoy your sailing in this delightfully versatile, well maintained and equipped yacht.
