Renowned for their seaworthiness, this William Garden designed yacht is a beauty to behold. With all the charm and grace of a classic timber yacht, this CT-41 is built from fibreglass and adorned in teak throughout. Orignally available in four versions, the Pilot house offers a raised coach roof with excellent visibility through large saloon windows. It also offers the option of piloting the vessel from a second helm in the saloon.

Mother Goose was recently repowered with a new 60hp Nanni diesel engine which sits under the saloon floor. She has undergone extensive upgrades to maintain her beautiful hull and rigging. Both mizzen and main mast were removed recently to carry out maintenance. The bowsprit has also been refurbished with the addition of a new bob stay. To top the already significant works completed on the yacht, her chainplates, standing and running rigging were replaced in 2016-17. Receipts in excess of $100k available on request.

'Mother Goose' has been with the same family for over two decades never venturing far from her home port of Pittwater. Her plush yet simple interior is an open canvas for someone willing to liveaboard or with plans to cruise either offshore or just locally. The addition of some electronic navigation equipment would be an advantage, however the choice is yours. What is certain however, is that you will enjoy smooth, fast and comfortable sailing and turn heads at every anchorage. She is beautifully finished and would suit anyone with an affinity for timber looking for a quality safe and seaworthy yacht with proven blue water potential and solid performance.

Check out this impresssive yacht for yourself in the accompanying virtual sailing video linked in the photos.

Mother Goose is currently lying in Pittwater, NSW waiting for new adventures. For more information and to arrange a viewing, contact Sonia Robinson on 0410 35 77 55.
