This great little Matilda 20 called Mopoke has been sailing around the Gippsland Lakes for many years.
A lovely little trailer sailer which would be great for the first time owner or someone looking to secure their own Matilda 20.
A two time starter in the Marlay Point Overnight Yacht Race, and a frequent observer craft around the trailer sailer circuit, Mopoke is a yacht that has brought us a great deal of joy.

Our intention was to continue to sail her for many years to come, however a health challenge has literally taken the wind out of our sails and our capacity to manage a trailer sailer has now deminished. A regretful but necessary sale of a much loved little boat.

Mopoke is in reasonable condition given her age. She is not a young boat, being nearly 50 years of age. But would be appreciated by someone who likes the classic lines and generous beam of the Matilda 20. She is heavy for a yacht of her size, but this is an indication of the way these solid little boats were built.
She feels very stable in the water.
The interior is comfortable and has the traditional Matilda 20 layout. The carpet is practically new and she is ready to sail the 2020 Marlay Point Overnight Yacht Race.
Cosmetically, consistent with her age, her topside will need a coat of paint. However you can still have many enjoyable sailing hours in advance of this being required.
If you are feeling like cruising around the Paynesville canals, she has a bimini to keep you in the shade while your guests enjoy a drink in the shade. She is a good little boat for a dusk cruise.

If camping is more your style, she is equiped with 2 quarter berths and if the kids are joining you there is more space up forward.

She comes with a solid tilt trailer that is in good condition.
She has all original sails, including roller reefing main, genoa, working jib, storm jib and spinaker.
