I have owned, meticulously cared for and maintained her for the past 15 years. Apache was built by Heritage Yachts in Tasmania in 1989 in fibreglass to a high standard as can be expected, she also features a ~2.5 ton lead 'winged' keel.
Key maintenance items recently:
New sole 37hp diesel engine
Stainless folding prop
Replace stern water glans
Replaced rigging and fuller serviced in 2019
Anti-fouling October 2020
She is easy to sail, I have added a genoa furler and a fully battened main with laze jack and have continued to update the sail inventory and ropes. An excellent suite of Raymarine instruments, VHF radio and stereo are installed.
She is a very comfortable boat for overnight stays with accommodation for up to 6 and all the mod cons including hot and cold shower.
Apache has performed well in club racing including:
Wining RANSA Winter Series 2005
Winning RPEYC Winter Series 2016
Also, the Sir David Martin Cup and many twilights and other series with the Balmain Sailing Club.
The reason I am selling her is I have purchased an X Boat and I am looking to spend the next couple of years campaigning more seriously.
The boat is ready for anything you like to do with it.
