1990 launched America's Cup development yacht designed by Murray, Burns & Dovell for the RSYS America's Cup campaign. "Nocturne" has slender lines and a powerful sail plan which makes her a pleasure to sail and race. The yacht has competed in Hamilton Island Race weeks and is a regular Sydney Harbour racer with a history of good results.
Nocturne has recently undergone major works including new hull paint, sail drive and engine rebuild. The yacht has a large cockpit designed to allow crews to work and trim sails with ease, twin helms allow good visibility for the skipper for close racing. This is a yacht that will reward any owner with exciting harbour racing and fast cruising at a entry price.
