I've got $30,000+ worth of receipts over the last 4 years - a lot of money spent to keep Petra in good shape.

Over the last 12 months Petra sailed from Brisbane to Airlie Beach twice and proved itself as a safe and comfortable coastal cruiser. Over the trips we were averaging 5nm/hr, reaching to 7nm/hr in good conditions. The boat can be easliy sailed by one person.

Inside, she is surprisingly spacious - similar to 34ft boats with plenty of headroom, sleeping and storage space and would suit taller people (I'm 187). It provides comfortable live-aboard conditions for two adults on a long-term basis.

Petra has now moved from Airlie to Tin Can Bay QLD. Contact me via email or phone to arrange an inspection.
