With its stunning classic lines, rich heritage, and impressive sailing performance, this Classic 55ft timber cruiser/racer turns heads where ever it pulls into dock! Designed by Slater in New Zealand, and professionally built to the highest standard at Searles Adelaide between 1949-1951, this vessel has been very well maintained through out its life. It has both cruised and raced extensively including completing the 1986 Sydney to Hobart race, a circumnavigation of the world via Panama and Suez canals, cruised extensively through Asia in 1993, and crossed the Tasman to NZ and back in 1998. In 2000 it underwent a no expense spared refit in Hobart to restore the vessel to its original glory, and has cruised the magnificent waters of Southern Tasmania under its current fastidious owner. It now presents an incredible opportunity for any Classic yacht enthusiast or in fact any bluewater cruiser looking for a unique and capable yacht ready for its next adventure!

Stepping inside, the varnished timber work and clean white trims present in excellent condition with a real old world charm. The spaces are cleverly used for maximum flow and functionality. The large U shaped galley is to port, and has plenty of space for preparing meals for all the crew. It features a 4 burner gas stove with oven, range hood and exhaust fan, large fridge/freezer, stainless steel sink with H/C pressurised water, and excellent storage. This area is ideally positioned adjacent to the saloon which features seating around the stunning timber folding leaf dinette for 8 in comfort. Forward is a seperate shower bay and storage area, before arriving in one of the private cabins. This has two large single berths, and access to the forepeak which has another single berth, and excellent storage. Back towards the companionway, there is a pilot berth to starboard opposite the traditional chart table, with a private toilet to port. The interior of the vessel has been kept in the classic style of the original build, with many charming features to be discovered as you go through. The functionality has been modernised with the gas hot water system, 12V Fridge, Webasto Diesel Heater, etc, to make the vessel a pleasure to use for local and extended cruising.

On deck, the cockpit is fully protected with a spray dodger, bimini, and full set of clears, creating an excellent space for both sailing and relaxing in any weather conditions. The cockpit also provides access to the aft master cabin which is well appointed with a small double berth and single berth opposite. There is excellent access around the wide QLD Beech side decks, and a beautifully built custom made timber tender is housed on the foredeck. The sail handling systems have been well set up for easy shorthanded sailing with the main in a boom bag with lazy jacks, headsail on furler, and self tacking staysail. There is also a reliable Course Master Autopilot to drive the vessel when required.

This vessel is powered by a Lister 45HP Diesel Engine. This uses only 1.75L per hour and provides easy cruising at 5 to 6 knots at only 1400RPM.

This is a vessel that is both charming and practical and is a safe and capable Bluewater Cruiser. Whether you want to cruise locally or further afield, this is a vessel that really does it with style. For more information please call Jo Breen on 0432031100 or John Radonic on 0459322862.
