NOW REDUCED - Designed by the late Prof Peter Joubert and solidly built by Rod Levy in 1968, the Joubert Wombat 42 class 'Widgeon' is an iconic Melbourne yacht that has delivered good racing results offshore, including two Sydney to Suva races, and three Melbourne-Hobarts along with a successful local club racing history on Port Phillip for many years. She remains in excellent condition, structurally very sound and dry.

Wheel steered, masthead rigged and with a safe, deep cockpit, this is a yacht to take you anywhere. The sail wardrobe comprises 2 mainsails, 4 genoas, 3 spinnakers, a staysail and storm tri-sail. She is powered by a Perkins 4-108 marine diesel in great running order. Her roomy interior sleeps 8 with a dinette, an enclosed toilet, a good galley with a fridge and a full-sized chart table. There's plenty of headroom throughout.

Solidly constructed in fibreglass sheathed marine plywood with properly engineered solid hardwood ribs, stringers and frames, she is fast and seaworthy. Her topsides were fully repainted about 5 years ago. The generous volume of her hull would lend itself to a comfortable cruising conversion or she can continue to cruise and club race as she is. 'Widgeon' is an Australian Registered vessel. Must be sold, all sensible offers considered.
