Description: Farr Binks 30 Fixed Keel
Farr Binks 30

Fixed Keel

Ready to race or single handed day sailing


This boat has plenty of space down below for its size and surprises everyone that comes aboard. It has been well maintained and seldom used except for light wind sails in the Cockburn sound or down to Mandurah. The boat has a galley with stove, sink, chest fridge and separate ice box, 400L of fresh water storage (or ballast) and sufficient enough space to store food for multiple weeks of sailing. There is a working head, two double beds, and the lounges are set up to be single beds. Under the chart table is a second extra large ice box over 150L.


The Surly Mermaid is a fast boat for her size, and I have achieved over 8knots under just jib and main. The yacht was used for racing by a previous owner and comes equipped with a full set of sails to do so again, including another main sheet, multiple jibs and two spinnakers, as well as spinnaker pulls and running gear to support.


The boat has a near new Diesel engine which has done less than 200 hours, 2 batteries connected to solar, and brand new 75l tank installed last year. The engine is very economical using approx. 2 litres per hour. Nice and stable for fishing and easy to manoeuvre in harbours.


The boat passed its two most recent surveys in the last 5 years with good rating for its age, the rigging is very sound and boat handles 25knots of wind without a bother.


The only perspex windows could do with replacing and an electric shower would be a nice feature as well as the annual bottom scrub, all of which can be arranged prior to the sell or taken into consideration in the price.


The yacht is currently on a mooring in Mangles bay, where the successful purchaser can store the boat for a number of months until they determine her next home.
