SAGA - an outstanding example of these fine craft - is being offered for sale for only the second time in her 50-year life.
· Restored by her current owners to original condition, and with sympathetic upgrades, SAGA has been scrupulously maintained by professional shipwrights.
· SAGA was displayed at the last two Classic & Wooden Boat Festivals at the Australian National Maritime Museum, the first production boat to be so honoured.
From the Muir electric winch on the bow to the 2" exhaust through the transom - and everything in between - nothing has been overlooked.
The 13 hp Beta Engine has only 190 hours.
With a new furling headsail operated from the cockpit, SAGA has everything for relaxed sailing.
Her interior - with full head room - is both beautiful and comfortable, and perfect for overnight stays.
One of the first Compass 28s built, SAGA is without doubt the best of the class afloat.
SAGA is available for inspection at her mooring on Sydney Harbour. For more information, email: jamesrickards49@hotmail. Com
