Moya is a much loved 1986 Northshore 38, set up for comfortable coastal cruising, passage making, and club racing.
The Northshore 38 needs no introduction, combining performance and comfort in single package that was so well received she went on to be the most popular Australian monohull yacht ever built. This user friendly, comfortable and seaworthy design has been the logical choice hundreds of Aussie sailing families over the years. It was also the logical choice for 72 year old Bill Hatfield's unassisted solo circumnavigation attempt in 2018. Bill made it around, but alas he did have to stop once and so missed out on his record. However, the rest of us are happily able to benefit from Hank Kauffman's brilliant, prescient and very good-looking design for our more modest sailing ambitions for many years into the future.
Moya was substantially refurbished in 2007 and has been professionally maintained and improved ever since under the direction of her experienced owner, who is also the President of the NS38 Class Association. She is a well-known club racer and weekend cruiser in Sydney Harbour and has been set up with the brief of achieving the ultimate dual-purpose sailboat. She has cruised NSW waters extensively under the current stewardship including Lord Howe Island and return.
If you are looking for an affordable, but fully functional, competitive Northshore 38, you will find Moya a great opportunity, with all the essentials - sails, rigging and engine, upgraded and ready to go. Get in now.
