Description: Boatspeed 8M
Built by Boatspeed Performance Sailcraft, the Boatspeed 8m is a modern, agile and fast club racer capable of challenging larger yachts while providing an exciting platform for club and twilight racing. Complete with comfortable racing interior and large sail plan including retractable bow sprit with asymmetric spinnakers the Boatspeed 8 is bound to get the blood racing and can be easily sailed with 3 - 4 crew or a couple of mates.

Van Demon underwent a complete refit in 2014 including faring of hull, keel and rudder, topsides respray, new standing rigging, mast refurbishment, new boom, jammers, cleats, spectra halyards and sheets, new wireless tactic instruments, replacement of inboard engine with new 5HP Yamaha outboard, removal of all through hull fittings, new stainless tiller, stanchions and life lines. Additional upgrades completed in 2017 include new boom bag with lazy jacks, deck gear servicing, new circuit board and wiring clean up, redesign of mainsheet (to cockpit centre), reinforcement of boom, clean up of bow sprit and new gasket. The finished result being a low maintenance, performance yacht with nothing more to spend.

Presenting in exceptional condition and with a considerable inventory Van Demon is a very affordable club racer that shouldn't be missed. Please call our Sydney office on 9969 2144 to arrange an inspection
