Description: Sparkman & Stephens 34
Renowned seaworthy, seakindly yachts with sparkling performance, able to sail close to the wind, an extremely responsive yacht. Solo circumnavigaters in these boats include Jon Sanders, '81-'82, David Hicks, 96-97, Jesse Martin, 99-2000, and our favorite Jessica Watson. An ideal easily handled cruising yacht, they have also had many racing success's, including Sir Edward Heath winning the Sydney Hobart in 69, in the first british built 34, and further wins in the Fastnet race, Parmelia races, the 96 Lord Howe. These are a class, classic yacht still being built today with the proven pedigree of Sparkman and Stephens. This boat was built by the respected Townson in NZ, and has been well maintained and constantly upgraded regardless of expense by the current owners. It is Auistralian registered and ready to go. In Australia we are accustomed to the locally built boats which had the cabin trunk modified to a single plane, but the stepped cabin is as Olin Stephens drew the boat.
