Wild Wave
1952 Jock Muir designed Cutter rigged yacht built to win the Sydney to Hobart.
Built by Geoff & Lindsay Keates overseen by Jock Muir.
Constructed of Huon pine she is nothing but a pedigree both in sailing history and design.
A well known yacht that has endured and has been well loved by the present custodian/ boat builder/shipwright, as well as previous custodians. She has many many stories to tell.
Having undergone a complete refit in 2007 she is now well presented and a capable 70 year old young lass.
Recently hauled out July/August, full hull and topsides paint, bronze new through hull valves with new spotted gum backing blocks, new Airmar transducer on fairing block and B&G Chartplotter as well as New B&G VHF with AIS installed.
Many many upgrades have been made both aesthetic and practical to better sea faring and handling.
For further reading I have ample documentation available on her history and restoration.
Wild Wave is a big volume boat for the serious sailor.

Remarks
I found Wild Wave in Pittwater in somewhat of a neglected state and as a Shipwright i took it upon myself over a year and a half to bring her back to an Offshore capable vessel. I sailed her from Sydney to Adelaide in March April 2022.
Also having just completed a lovely voyage from Adelaide to her new location in Melbourne in November 2023.
Wild Wave is a proud, strong and elegant vessel that really is for the discerning sailor.
It is time for me to move on and am looking to entrust Wild Wave to the right person so expect an interview! I am in no way pressed to sell and if she does not find the right home we will happily keep her and cruise to New Zealand and Pacific.
Full survey 2020 by the well respected Gavin Clark available on request.
I have collected all the teak decking to replace the entire cockpit. Though the existing teak is ok, it is getting somewhat tired. I am happy to replace the cockpit for the new custodian.
Wild Wave is turn key ready to go.
