Equipped with all the essentials for overnight and long weekend trips, the Compass 29 is a boat for life. Born Free was one of the last of nearly 400 built and has been a shared family boat for almost 3 decades. Friendships have been cherished while several children were raised sailing on this fabulous little boat. She has been permanently berthed at Sydney's Cruising Yacht Club of Australia for almost 30 years and used constantly by her owners for outings in Sydney Harbour, to Manly, the Zoo and occasionally farther afield to Pittwater.
Wtih a large and enclosed cockpit that is safe for solo sailors and small children, the Compass 29 is a great option for those willing to take their beginner sailing skills to the next level. If you're in the market for a reliable, roomy, easy to sail boat or first time adventure, Born Free is equipped with additional sails, life jackets, a great sized sun awning and a cockpit table. For the sailing or club racing enthusiasts, she has additional headsails, a spinnaker and pole. Her engine has been professionally maintained by Sailor Marine of North Harbour and runs perfectly.
