History and other information.

Invictus was launched in 1999 and is only 18 years old; she is insured for $20,000.00AUD.

I purchased Invictus in 2014, she was located in the Tweed River (On the NSW QLD border), I sailed her back to Sydney (Single handed), Sailing her down the coast I was very impressed with the way she held course on all points of sail, especially down wind. The electronic self-steering was hardly moving. She also has a Hasler windvane. The original owner made sure she was a heavy boat (fully encapsulated led ballast, no keel bolts) for her size which makes her very sea kindly. She heaves to easily and is extremely comfortable and dry when at sea. Invictus constantly averaged 5/6 knots in the summer 20knot North/East winds.

Originally Invictus was purchased as a hull and deck (all fiberglass) and was fitted out as a keeper by the original owner (I am the second owner).

The original owner (1st owner) is a life time boat owner with the skill set of a shipwright, fitted her out over a 3 year period while working in Melbourne. She was launched in 1999 and sailed home to Tasmania, having now crossed Bass Strait 3 times. Invictus has also entered every river/bay/harbour accessible to a small cruising yacht along the east coast of Australia as far north as Tweed Heads. The original owner was on his way to New Guinea and beyond, before health issues force him to stop at Tweed Heads and put Invictus up for sale in 2014.

Invictus is not a conversion to junk, she was designed from the start to be a junk schooner, so placement of the masts are perfect in the saloon and the forward berth they are not in the way. Ballast and balance is excellent.

Invictus was built strong for off shore work and is setup for single or shorthanded sailing. The original owner also realised that a full time live aboard spends 95% of their time at anchor, so plenty of air circulation large windows and excellent living/cooking space, lots of storage, excellent TV and sound system, a wood burner stove, ability to carry a dinghy on the stern, Plus over 6ft head room.

Invictus is moored on Sydney harbour. Last anti-fouled in August 2107 (good for 2 years). The mooring is also available, I can assist with that.
