1984 Adams 12 now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.
A well-founded design, this example is well equipped for family coastal cruising and also very competitive racing with her powerful short-handed rig set up.
A very roomy feel down below with generous headroom throughout, very large and workable U-shaped galley with pantry area, 2 aft cabins are very private, 1 large V berth forward and 4 single bunks within the main saloon area that convert easily to good storage use when not required for sleeping.
The settee features a very large table that could seat 6 easily and with the flip up butterfly additional section, it can have up to 8 or more around the table at one time. Incredible use of space for a 40 footer. Storage areas behind and underneath all seating plus additional storage under twin aft and single forward double beds. Carpeted flooring with small sections of varnished teak and holly to enhance a very warm and cosy feeling down below.
A history of numerous offshore races including several Sydney to Hobart, Coffs and Gladstone events with very impressive results.
