The S&S 39 'Ada' is a classic blue water racer/cruiser built by the Prestige Yachts of WA and launched in 1982. The S&S is a strong and solidly built vessel with exceptional handling performance. With a deep draft of 2.2m and masthead cutter rig and skeg hung rudder, wide beams amidships and a beautiful bow and counter stern showing off the classic S&S wine glass section.

'Ada' has completed many offshore races including at least one Sydney to Hobart yacht race. She has a simple yet beautifully finished interior in teak complete with pilot berths in the saloon, a fully enclosed head and a great sized galley for catering at sea. Ada is well suited to serious coastal and offshore sailing and set up for short-handed sailing and a very enclosed, deep cockpit. If you're more interested in fast sailing and cruising, she is eqiupped with a bimini, dodger and boom awning tent and both interior and exterior tables.

Ada's fit out includes near new canvas covers throughout the yacht and newly upholstered cushions below for all berths. Her decks were newly painted with non-skid in 2019. She is fitted with HF and VHF radio for offshore communitcations and has a very decent sized chart table for navigation. She would merit a few additions to the galley for liveaboard (fridge/stove re-connections) however would make a great sailing yacht for anyone with a modest budget. Ada has upgraded engine and house batteries and is powered by a reconditioned Bukh engine serviced annually by her owner (mechanic). Last Antifouled - June 2020.

Watch ADA in action sailing in 20+knots of breeze in Pittwater on a fine summer's day - video linked in photos. Ada is well priced so for more information and to arrange a viewing contact Sonia Robinson of EziYacht. Com at the number below.
