Quest is a well-known yacht that has competed and won most yachts races on the East Coast of Australia. The current and previous owners have lovingly restored and upgraded this Nelson Marek 43 to be a competitive race yacht capable of any campaign.

Quest has a very successful history being launched in 1994 by Bob Steel. Quest won 1n 1994 Hamilton Island Race Week, the Telstra Cup, and was 2nd in the Sydney Hobart. She also won the Sydney Mooloolaba race and was then shipped to Hawaii where along with 'Ausmaid' and 'Ragamuffin', won the Kenwood Cup. She then returned to Australia and was one of the 44 finishers out of a starting lineup of 115 yachts in the 1998 Hobart in which she finished 4th overall. Quest finished 11th in division in 2016 Sydney to Hobart Race.


Very large sail inventory including new North sails. Safety equipment is partial Cat 1. Many upgrades including, 2015 new rod rigging, 2014 new Yanmar 3JH2 engine. Boat was fully prepared with no expense spared for 2016 Sydney to Hobart race.

Quest still has many races left in her and is being sold due to owners retirement from racing. This is an excellent opportunity and should be inspected.
