Proven, well built and well maintained, coastal cruiser/racer in excellent condition. Farrier's famous folding system trimaran, foldsd in minutes to a road legal width, or for parking in a marina berth, trailerable with registered road trailer.
Built as the plug boat for Ostac Marine F 31 production series in Brisbane in 1991 under the supervision of Ian Farrier. Well built of western red cedar strips and glass and vinylester. Amas are foam and vinylester and beams more complex with foam, carbon and kevlar. Beams had the Farrier fix in 2010, now bulletproof after the Ostac seams removed and glassed over. Build proven by recent thorough maintenance work which involved removing all bottom paint to gelcoat as well as repainting topsides, no deficits evident.
3 owners since. Current owner for last 10 years, sailed extensively in southern Tasmania. Has been approved as a keelboat sail trainer by Australian Sailing, AMSA and MAST. Has undergone extensive renovations over the last 2 years and is arguably in as good a condition as ever she was. New paint, tramps, mainsail, outboard, Coppercoat antifouling, all stainless structural bolts replaced, new cushions and mattresses inside. New dyneema square top main a couple of years ago and a new Yamaha 9.9 four stroke just before that. Tiller outboard linkage added at that time. Daggerboard cheek block replaced. Aft cabin ventilation hatches replaced.
Sails beautifully, if there is any wind she is pretty well unbeatable, she just loves wind., but slides along with the Etchells in light airs.
Comes with registered trailer with electric/hydraulic brakes and winch.
Achilles 11 foot dinghy included.
