Exceptionally well maintained example of this well known Jim Young design, built by Roger Land Yachts, NZ. Young 88's have a cult following in New Zealand and active owners association, e. G. : https://www. Young88. Org. Nz/home/. While designed to race, the interior is designed with comfortable family cruising in mind as well.

After seven years and two growing kids we are selling 'Quickstep', our speedy weekend cruiser and mini apartment for weeknights in town. The vessel has undergone an extensive professional refurbishment over the last 12 years from the prior owners in Queensland which we have continued, including:

o New cabin floor/sole, 2016
o New Interior upholstery and quality marine mattresses, 2017/2018
o Tiller sanded and re-varnished, 2019
o Hull below waterline stripped back to gelcoat and professionally refinished, topside repairs and maintenance and resealing by Derwent Marine, November 2019.
o new toilet installed, 2021
o Professionally maintained (annually) Volvo Penta 18 HP engine with 2-blade folding prop on saildrive leg
o New fully-battened mainsail boom bag (Doyles) with lazy jacks (easy two-handed sailing as you only need one person to drop main), 2020.
o New house, crank batteries and C-Tek charger, October 2020.
o Prop-speed applied at slipping
