The yacht is a 1991 example of the popular Farr 11.6 cruiser/racer design of which several hundred were built around the world. She has had a great racing record, with wins in the Darwin-Ambon race and almost every other race from Darwin.
She is also a comfortable cruising boat, with accommodation for up to seven, a saloon with table, refrigeration, water pressure system and electric toilet. The keel floors have been strengthened and much upgrading and maintenance completed over the last six years. New Allyacht mast and rigging (2015) She is an Australian registered vessel, allowing international racing and cruising.
The boat has been lightly used over the last three years, with the owner committed to a new boat. She would be a great boat for the Darwin wet season races.
