ANOTHER HUGE PRICE REDUCTION - NOW $82,000.00 DOWN BY $16,500 !
"Newport Spirit" is a Nelson - Marek designed and Carroll Marine, Neport Rhode Island USA built high performance racer with potential to be a club winner and bring home the silver! The One Design 35 was conceived with fun in mind for owners who want to sail in a fast, competitive fleet both around the cans or longer distance passage races. "Newport Spirit" is hull number 48 of 48 made and has a solid list of successes to her name in both the USA and Australia having been shipped out by an RPAYC sailor in 2006 where she won the Pitt Water Coffs race, Coffs Harbour Offshore series and the annual blue water point score championship series for 4 consecutive years.
She has a deep fin keel with lead bulb and high profile rudder presenting a minimum of drag and giving superb control. The ballast ratio is a high 40% thanks to the deep keel with big lead bulb and the low weight above the waterline achieved through the carbon reinforced hull and carbon rig. The lack of a backstay allows her to carry a large square top main giving an extraordinary amount of power and acceleration whilst still twisting off to depower when necessary.
Her sweet spot range is light to medium conditions around 10 to 20 knots and you don't need a football team to race her as she is very stable - 4 to 5 including the skipper can manage comfortably with another one or two in heavier conditions or longer passage races. The 1D35 can hold her own against much bigger boats in the 40' to 45' category so plenty of fun and competitive racing awaits her new owner without the hassle of finding a scrum of rail meat!
On deck the 1D35 has a large flat cockpit with the traveler located aft of the wheel with end boom sheeting and German mainsheet system. Many of the forward lines run through tunnels keeping the working platform clear and all lines come back to the cockpit including the hydraulic forestay tensioner, halyards and jib cars. Below decks the 1D35 has functional accommodation for the racing crew including pipe cots, bunks with lee cloths, head and galley with metho stove, icebox and sink.
An impressive sail wardrobe is included comprising near new carbon and kevlar racing sails and 3 x Symmetrical Spinnakers and 1 x Asymmetrical Spinnaker plus a set of kevlar delivery sails. The engine is an 18HP Yanmar which has had a full service and she has just been lifted for antifoul and propspeed. A long list of refurbishments has been undertaken by the current owner and she presents in exceptional condition. Sailing Magazine's 2008 review states that "the 1D35 is a model of racing practicality, a distillation of yacht design into simple speed and sensible handling. [The designer and builder} took what sailors love most about dinghies and combined it with the power, speed and seaworthiness of big boats".
Regrettable sale due to medical circumstances. "Newport Spirit" is available for inspection by appointment at Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, Brisbane and will pass any survey and mechanical reports. There is absolutely no work needed on the boat, just bring your mates, a 6 pack of beer, go racing and have a blast doing it!
