The world-famous Top Hat 25' needs no introduction. They are a safe, capable and economical Blue Water cruiser known for their seaworthiness.

Top Hats were made famous when the book "Two In A Top Hat" came out. It was written by a young family that circumnavigated the world leaving and returning to Sydney. I've recently heard about multiple single-hand sailors who have sailed around Australia on their Top Hats - and they love them.

We have loved sailing around Geographe Bay in this boat so much our young family has decided to buy a liveaboard boat. So if you are considering whether sailing is for you, this is an excellent introduction yacht. For more established sailors, this yacht has the ability to take you around the world if you want.

It's easily sailed single hand and is very forgiving. Sails are able to be reefed easily and the headsail is on a furler. There is a safe and weather protected cockpit with tiller steering with all lines (ropes) coming back to the cockpit.

While the boat is 25 feet in length, it feels bigger as the designers (Illingworth & Primrose) have thought of clever space-conscious ways to maximise every corner. Down below, you will find storage spaces everywhere for food, clothes and tools.

There is standing headroom throughout, and the sleeping bunks are designed for tall people (I'm 6'2).

This boat is set up and ready for daysailing and extended trips this summer.

Was out of the water in May, 2020 for clean/antifouling.

Additionally, I have a mooring up in Mangles Bay (Rockingham). This could be a great low-cost place to store the boat.

Get in touch with me for additional information and a viewing. The boat is located at Port Geographe Marina in Busselton, WA.
