Description: Dubois 31 COMPETITIVE RACER IN EXCELLENT CONDITION
This well known local yacht boasts an impressive history as a strong and fast racer both inshore and offshore. Having completed 4 Sydney to Hobart Races, and 3 Launceston to Hobart Races, it has been successfully campaigned since its launch in 1983. Built strongly out of King Billy Pine and Epoxy, the vessel has benefited from regular maintenance and upgrades from its fastidious owner, including a NEW 2011 mast and standing rigging, the decks being re-fiberglassed in 2017 and a full professional repaint of the hull and deck.
Inside, the vessel has an excellent layout for both racing or cruising, with accommodation for 6. Aft there are two quarter berths with pipecots above, and two settee berths in large saloon. The galley is well equipped with 2 burner meth stove and with sink and tap, and a large eutectic fridge. Forwards is a private head area with toilet and excellent sail storage in the bow.
On deck, the cockpit is ergonomically designed for the race crew, however the vessel can also be sailed short handed, with all lines lead aft. The wide side decks allow easy and safe access around the vessel. The sail inventory is extensive and features a near new Mainsail. The vessel is powered by a well maintained 13HP Yanmar Diesel engine which provides easy cruising at 5 to 6 knots.
This vessel is presented in very good order, and is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to get into racing, or looking for a coastal cruiser with excellent performance. For more information, please call Jo Breen on 0432 031 100 or John Radonic 0459 322 862.
