Hank Kaufman boasts an exceptional reputation for designing cruising yachts with outstanding sailing performance, stunning lines, and well laid out interiors. This vessel is an incredible example of his work, having been professionally built by Huon Yachts out of King Billy Pine strip planking with Blue Gum frames and internal and external fibreglass. This superb vessel is only on its second owner from launch. The original highly experienced owners had the vessel custom built with no expense spared to create an incredibly strong, capable, and comfortable bluewater cruiser. They went on to cruise extensively double handed including a 2 year South Pacific cruise, 4 trips up and back to North Queensland, circumnavigation of Tasmania, and even competed in the inaugural Three Peaks Race in 1989. The current owner has recently completed a circumnavigation of Tasmania, and significantly improved the vessel the vessel for this trip including NEW 2022 ANCHOR WINCH, NEW 2021 STANDING RIGGING, NEW MAN LIFE RAFT, NEW 2021 ASYMMETRIC SPINNAKER, NEW 2020 RAYMARINE ELECTRONICS, NEW 2020 MAINSAIL, NEW 2020 ELECTRIC TOILET WITH HOLDING TANK, NEW 2020 ELECTRIC HALYARD WINCH, AND ALL SEA COCKS REPLACED IN 2020! With all systems in excellent order, and its proven performance and capability, this exceptional vessel is one not to miss. Whether you are looking for a fun family cruiser, or vessel to fulfil your most ambitious cruising aspirations, this vessel does it all in comfort and style!

Inside, the vessel has ample light, a warm feel, and is beautifully appointed with timber trim throughout. The large galley features corian bench tops, fridge and freezer, gas 2 burner stove with oven, and excellent storage space. The spacious saloon has room for 8 with ease, and has a dinette to port, and settee to starboard which is complete with lee cloth for use as a comfortable berth at sea. The accommodation is extensive with a private double cabin forward, large double cabin aft, and third double quarter berth. If additional berths are required, the dinette folds down to create an additional double in the saloon. The fully appointed bathroom is to port and is complete with H/C Shower and NEW electric toilet with holding tank.

On deck, the deep cockpit is well protected by a large spray dodger, and gives an excellent sense of security. The vessel has been well set up for extended double handed cruising and is easily managed by a cruising couple. The teak decks are in excellent condition, and there is easy access forward. On the bow is the new electric anchor winch, with oversized anchor for security.

The vessel is powered by a well maintained 60HP Perkins, providing easy and economical cruising at 7 knots. Located midships, there is excellent access for easy servicing.

This is a yacht that really does have it all. With all the recent upgrades, and its stunning aesthetics, it is sure to impress on inspection.
