Description: Adams 44 One of a kind original Paul Kelly Adams Carina 44
La Tortuga - Blue Water Racing Yacht

*** CONSIDERING ALL OFFERS ***

This yacht is currently in Cairns waiting for ABF release and ready to view. Call for viewing times.

We are the second owners of this yacht. A little history from the original builders:

The original owner had this yacht made by the famous Paul Kelly. Designed by Joe Adams. It was a love project which Paul took on in his own time to develop a protype with John Adams which became the Carina Yacht. This yacht was the original mould for the fibreglass boats, so this is literally the ONLY one of its kind in aluminium. This yacht was put together using all the lessons learnt on what would make the very best sailing yacht. She sails herself. She is one of a kind and deserves a respectful and loving owner. We recognise and thank the loving family of the original owner who was kind enough to share this story with us.

Sadly, we are not in a situation that warrants proper use and care of this vessel so this the only reason for selling her.


The photos do not do this yacht justice. All it needs is new electrics, paint job above water line and a tidy up and she's good to go.

This yacht has been dry docked for the last 7 years. We are only selling becuse we have children to young to sail. Regretful sail as this is a really good yacht. It has done the Sydney to Hobart Race also.
