Description: Adams 11.9 SUCCESSFUL DOUBLE HANDED YACHT READY TO RACE
Designed by the legendary Joe Adams with his trade mark narrow hull and light displacement, the Adams 11.9 design has proven to be a highly successful offshore race yacht. This vessel has been further optimised with a Murray Burns Dovell designed keel and rudder, taller rig, sugar scoop, and retractable bowsprit, and has proven to be highly competitive both double handed and fully crewed. Having been owned by an experienced yachtsman for the last 19 years, this yacht has been regularly raced and upgraded. Highlights of this include the 2018 Melbourne to Osaka Race, Melbourne to Vanuatu race, and winning not only the double handed division of the 2017 Melbourne to Hobart Race, but also the overall PHS victory against the fully crewed fleet. This vessel is freshly antifouled (June 2020), engine serviced, and is ready for its next adventure!
Inside, the vessel is dry and comfortable and features 6 berths including a large double in the forepeak. There is ample storage for extended passages at sea, and the vessel features a large fridge, gas stove and oven, and full nav station.
On deck, the vessel is well set up for double handed racing or cruising, including a NEW 2017 Coursemaster Autopilot, furling headsail, and all lines lead back into the cockpit. The large cockpit is well protected with the spray dodger, and sail controls are easily in reach of the helm. The sail inventory is extensive and features NEW 2018 Carbon Main.
Powered by a reliable and well maintained 30HP Volvo, the vessel cruises easily at 7-8 knots.
This vessel has benefited from a major refit in 2017 prior to the 2018 Melbourne to Osaka Race including NEW Standing Rigging, and presents as a great opportunity for the inaugural Double Handed division of the Sydney to Hobart Race. Capable of high speeds, this vessel remains easily managed, and would be an excellent opportunity for anyone wanting to start offshore yacht racing at any level.
