History
Built by Mose and Hoye circa 1965 approx.
This beautiful cruiser has an impressive track record, having sailed two Sydney to Hobart races, circumnavigated Australia twice and explored the stunning waters of New Caledonia.
She is a very good seakeeping boat and a small part of Sydney's maritime history
Happy Days has been with her current owner since 2009 and has been regularly maintained and slipped/antifouled every year. Engine (Volvo Penta) new in 2014 - 280 hours only. Heat exchangers serviced in 2022.
Full safety equipment including EPIRB, Lifejackets, Flares (in date), VHF
Whilst entirely seaworthy, some work (sheathing) will be required on the hull in the next couple of years which has been reflected in the price
Currently lying Rushcutters Bay.
Beyond her sailing prowess, Happy Days is a small but noteworthy part of Sydney's maritime history - a testament to her enduring charm.
