Presentation

'Galatea M' is a modified Normandy Class yacht (2ft longer) from the board of the renowned designer Jack Laurent Giles. Professionally built in 1958 as a Sydney to Hobart racer she proved her worth in 1962 by placing 3rd overall and 1st in Div 2. Now used regularly for recreational and twilight sailing, 'Galatea M' will suit those seeking an easily to handle classic yacht in stunning condition.

Loved and maintained by her current owner, 'Galatea M' has undergone a major refit (2000) and a topsides and deck refit (2017) including repaint hull and cabin top, strip and re-varnish all timber surfaces, remove mast, strip and re-varnish (18 coats), replace all halyards and sheets, refurbished rudder and steering, refurbished boom bag and lazyjacks, new hatch cover and new bilge pumps. Additional upgrades include new genoa and mainsail (2014), new diesel engine (2006), re-rigging (2009). 'Galatea M' comes with a documented maintenance history, original Oregon boom with furling system, mast lowering tackle and other spares.

Ready for a new owner, 'Galatea M' will draw admiration from all you pass or anchor near. Please contact our Sydney office on 9969 2144 for further information or to arrange an inspection
