Designed and built by Jean Vignes in Sydney, NSW (launched 1984) Chimere is styled and equipped for serious voyaging, or living aboard. With her 5-cabin layout, large saloon, enclosed cockpit, shallow draft and extensive flush deck, she is also versatile with a proven track record.

This has been well demonstrated from having completed four medical-transport-aid missions (with Medical Sailing Ministries Inc. ) between 2009 and 2017, to the remote islands of Vanuatu. Each mission was of six months duration and in total involved around 100 sailing and medical volunteers, coming and going at pre-determined times and locations, with between 11 and 13 people living aboard for two weeks at a time.

The last four years have seen Chimere voyage around Tasmania, and also to New Zealand, where her strength and comfortable features proved invaluable; particularly in Fiordland and during the winter return voyage across the Tasman in July 2021.

After a change in my life circumstances, I have decided to finally part with Chimere, having achieved many of my lifelong sailing dreams in her over the past 16 years of ownership.

If you have dreams of crossing oceans, or making distant landfalls, and doing it in safety and comfort, with room for family and friends, then Chimere is well worth your consideration.

And should you be stepping up from a smaller vessel and feel daunted by a boat of this size, don't worry, so was I... And so if necessary, I'd be willing to assist in a period of handover and familiarisation. I would also consider a shared ownership arrangement.
