BINDA is a well known and safe contender of 8 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race's, many Melbourne to Hobart "West Coasters", many Melbourne regional races, several Pacific Island trips and with some planning could do a circumnavigation of the World with little additional input. She has just undergone over $22,000 in hull refurbishment and has a new sounder and electric Head. Interior is original Teak racing bunk set up but would lend itself to conversion to settee/ bed and improved galley which remains original with metho stove. Has low hour new Volvo 30 HP Diesel engine, folding prop and new water pump. Standard 12V electrics. Having a new Hull the Coach house could do with an exterior make over. In the past few years Binda has done an uneventful Bass Strait cossing and recent relocation to St Helens from Devonport. I can arrange delivery of this boat to a new owner if required. The boat is 36' x 10' and draws 6'. A Hull speed of 6.5 Knots makes her more than hold her own with more modern yachts. There are 6 sails including spinnaker which were recently assessed by a local sailmaker. That report is at hand.
Binda is a registered Australian ship on the Shipping Register Registration number H142.
Binda needs a crew capable of getting the best out of her. A furler would make cruising easier of course, but she is a thoroughbred and we have maintained her as original.
Owners are now elderly and decrepit. We need something like a Finn 8/ a trailer sailer/a day sailer to keep us safe on the water. We may factor sometthing like that into the deal if it doesn't give us grief. Consider including new mooring if suitable for purchaser. This boat, not including its above listed points makes for a cheap accommodation holiday destination in a beautiful and climate friendly part of Tasmania.
