We are very pleased to bring to market this beauitiful, strong, well maintained and fast cruiser/racer. Launched in 1987 as Queensland Maid, this Farr 40 IOR One Tonner has had an illustrious career. She has raced in all the major races including S2H multiple times with a best placing of 3rd overall in 1991. Commissioned and built by her owner Bob Robertson and built in Caboulture out of epoxy and Kevlar sandwich utilizing a PVC vacuum bagged core. This type of construction provides for a very stiff boat and clean roomy interior. She is strong. Very strong.
11 years ago she was bought by her current owners and modified to go cruising. She has had her interior completely remade and is an open plan and very comfortable cruising yacht. She is now wheel steered too. Comfortably cruising up and down the Queensland coast she looks magnificent and sails fast and stable easily sitting on +7kts in 12kts of breeze. Her Volvo Penta 43HP motor has been well looked after with a regular maintenance schedule as well as new turbo unit (2019), fully reconditioned gearbox (2020). Receipts available.
With the resurgence in restoring IOR race yachts taking place worldwide this yacht could very easily being stripped back to her thoroughbred days.
