Back in the 60's, 70's and 80's Ces Quilkey built Australia's top ocean racing yachts... Mercedes, Ragamuffin 1, Love and War, Centrefold, as well as police launches and others... Strength and lightness was his trademark.
'Boolaroo' was launched in 1980, designed by Douglas Gilling and is renowned for her ease of handling, particularly in boisterous offshore conditions.
She is equipped for short-handed sailing and with a balanced helm will sail herself for periods unattended.
Incredibly strong and dry, built of cold moulded Oregon over Queensland Maple ribs. Hull is sheathed and and deck is laid teak.
The interior exudes the richness of the Honduras Mahogany timber and can sleep up to eight.
