This lovely 36ft steel yacht was designed and built by naval architect Wilf O'Kell. She has been well maintained by the current owners and is available to view on the hard in Townsville. There is a recent survey on request. She is sold as is where is. There is some maintenance to be done. Call for more information. Read on to hear the current owners experience with her.

After riding around most of northern Queensland in search for the perfect yacht, we decided on this old girl 'Spirit of Kodi'. When I first climbed in I was blown away by the stunning wooden interior, high headspace and the warm homely feeling. She sails slowly at a maximum speed of 7 knots, with sails and engine, but she is very stable and relatively easy to sail by yourself and a breeze with 2 people. We even used her as a vessel for our underwater photography business around the islands and reefs off Cairns for a short while. I then decided it was time to continue my education and sailed her down enjoying diving and snorkelling off all the amazing islands between Cairns and Townsville. She has since remained as an inexpensive accommodation for the last 4 years, as unfortunately I have been completely lacking in time to enjoy sailing her. I hope she goes to another keen adventurer.

Ok so list of things that need attention on boat.
Starboard fuel tank leak at the connection.
pin hole weld starboard side needs primer, paint and antifoul
batteries- they have been left without charge for a while
The rubber on the inside of the autopilot string on the helm is disintegrated, you can feel it when you turn the helm, potentially just needs new string and rubber inside.

If you are looking for things:
my diesel fitter still has my outboard for the tender, I can pick it up anytime.
It is now a full manual (not self furling) jib- sail is on the bed. Mainsail under bed, water tank under bed.
The wind turbine blades are in the compartment bow end of bed.
My dad has my charts for the moment if buyer requires any just let him know i can offer a few for townsville and cairns region.
There are a lot of spare parts, paints, electrical supplies and ropes on the boat- feel free to go through any compartment- I have a few things still on the boat however most of it will go with boat.
The electronic charts (SD card) for raymarine are in top draw next to fridge in a plastic sleeve.
Safety equipment is below that.

What I have had done in the last year:
sand blast, weld weak spots in hull and deck, repaint hull and antifoul.
bowsprit replaced
chainplates replaced both sides
new prop and prop shaft
engine full service and some hoses replaced, new sea strainer
fuel tanks plastic rewelded
repaired cockpit sides (wood and fibreglass). This still requires a bit more work.
new boom tent
new batteries (but they have been left without charge for a while)
outboard serviced
Jib repaired
Spoke to diesel fitter regarding the loose chain on the helm and he suggested leaving it as is, however i would recommend buyer replace chain with a shorter one.
just bought new o-rings for gas hose-purchaser will need to fit
New EPIRB
