If you want to cruise in comfort in a seaworthy yacht with a good pedigree then this boat is for you.
She completed 11 Sydney to Hobart races in her early days and more recently as a coastal cruiser has seen a lot of Tasmania's east coast - Maria Island, Eagle Hawk Neck, Port Arthur, Cockle Creek and Port Davey. Not to mention frequent trips to and circumnavigations of, Bruny Island. She is comfortable and stable and offers an ideal platform to enjoy the dolfins riding the bow wave or the seals and occasional whale that inhabit this part of the world.
When she is not cruising, she is a competetive club racer that enjoys racing around the bouys in the Huon River or competing in the longer 20+ nautical mile races to Dover or around Huon Island.
