Description: Jim Young 47
Sir Henry Merkin has been one of the most well known sailing boats in Western Australia. At her peak in 70's & 80's besides having success on the race course, her historical highlights include:

Being appointed as the flagship for the Hutt River Provence Navy.
Competing in the 1975 Sydney Hobart Race. (see photo)
Hosted ABBA sailing on he Swan River during their famous 1977 tour of Australia. (see photo & video)

Designed by renowned Kiwi Jim Young, Sir Henry Merkin was built in the early 70s by Lambert and Piesse for 2 very discerning WA yachtsmen. Consequently the quality of construction is excellent and warrants the amount of money, time and work that has returned her to a condition almost as good as new.

Prior to her current refurbishment she cruised extensively and has even competed in the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race amongst many others. Now with a new engine, redesigned keel and modern equipment she is well set up for long range cruising. The furling sails, large and electric winches make Sir Henry Merkin easy to sail short handed. She is fast with a soft motion and very comfortable.
