Was Ketch rigged - Origan spars with SS rigging - I Lowered both masts in Sept 2020 for safety (in case of Cyclones & covid lockout) due to poor condition of the Missen & Main mast.
Boat Will need two replacement masts, sails & rigging could all be re-used. (Main mast now scraped)
Barlow jib winches
I have owned the boat since 2007, Purchased for $125,000 selling at less than1/2 that price due to wear & tear & the repairs needed, mainly used between Kograh bay NSW & Wynham/Manly QLD, She's been a fantastic cruising boat & livaboard for the past 11 years.
Boat was out of water for a year in 2014-15 for a paint & refresh, she now needs another refresh & new owner to restore the masts & bring her back to her former glory or leave mast's off for a beautiful motor cruiser.
Great Project boat & at $55k ONO, you wont find a better buy or project boat.
Note: Due to Covid Restriction over the past 2 years I have been unable to visit or obtain all the boats details & finer points as well as some more recent photos including internals etc. For genuine enquries please contact me as I intend to visit the boat late January.
*** Update & more photos ***
