With over 150 built, the Young 88 has proven to be an incredibly successful design both on the race course, and for family cruising. Designed by the legendary Jim Young well ahead of its time, the generous cockpit with open transom, and excellent accommodation makes these capable vessels highly sought after. The impressive sailing performance of the design is well known, and they are both stable enough to be an ideal as a first keel boat for a family, and equally highly rewarding to race for the competitive sailor. This vessel really is an exceptional example of the design, has proven to be an IRC and AMS winning yacht under owners in both Melbourne and Hobart. Always on the podium, it won the 2019 IRC Yachting Championships (Div 2), and is well known as the top performing vessel in its division in Hobart since being sailed down from Melbourne in 2016. Most recently it has excelled in double handed racing including winning the 2022 Autumn Double Handed Series. The current owner has further improved the vessel over the last 12 months including NEW B&G TRITON INSTRUMENTS, NEW THRU-HULL FITTINGS AND SEA COCKS, NEW TOILET AND PLUMBING, CUSTOM CARBON BRACKET WITH UPGRADED MAINSHEET SYSTEM WITH FINE TUNE, HULL FAIRED AND TOPSIDES POLISHED. The vessel also features a NEW HP NANNI DIESEL ENGINE WITH ONLY 227HRS ON THE CLOCK, EXCEPTIONAL SET OF CARBON DOYLE AND NORTH GRAND PRIX SAILS, NEW 2020 RUDDER BEARINGS AND CUTLASS BEARING, the list goes on! With all the boxes ticked, this vessel is ready to take a new owner to the top of the podium!

Stepping inside, the interior is light and airy with clean white surfaces and plenty of timber trim. The freshly varnished floorboards, and NEW 2022 removable dinette make this a stunning space to relax and enjoy time onboard. There is seating for 6 in comfort on the neatly upholstered settees, and accommodation for 5 adults including a honeymoon double starboard quarter-berth with single opposite, and two single settee berths. Forward, the NEW 2021 toilet is tucked privately behind the main bulkhead, with a vanity opposite. The L-shapped galley is to port and features a 2 burner Maxie Metho stove, generous icebox, stainless steel sink, and plenty of storage.

On deck, the vessel is superbly set up for both fully crewed and shorthanded racing. All lines are lead back to the cockpit, and from the helm the driver can easily reach the NEW 2021 mainsheet System with fine tune, and jib sheets on the self tailing primary winches. The sail inventory is simply exceptional, and along with the Doyles and North Regatta Set, there is also a full twilight set of Kevlar sails in good condition, and dacron delivery/cruising sails for weekends away.

This vessel is powered by a NEW Nanni N2.14 14HP Diesel Engine with only 227hrs on the clock! Professionally installed, and regularly serviced, this provides easy cruising around 5 knots.

With its gleaming polished topsides, and trade mark pink paw prints, this vessel is sure to impress. Capable of both inshore and offshore racing, fully crewed or double handed (can do a Launceston to Hobart Race with some additional safety equipment), family cruising, and relaxing weekends away, this is a vessel not to miss!
