Sunbird III is a beautifully maintained and character-filled 45ft trimaran. Built in 1979 by Iain Manson and designed by the acclaimed Franz-Buhler, Sunbird III has stood the test of time and is ready to continue her adventures.
A proven cruiser, Sunbird III has travelled extensively. Her light construction and ketch-rigged sail arrangement make her a great passage maker, and the bonus of the shallow draft and ability to beach means you can explore places that other boats can't. A hydraulic lift keel ensures you are also tracking upwind at 'mono' angles.
Improvements include replacement rigging in 2019, main and mizzen replaced over the last two years, galley benchtops and 3-burner gas stove replaced in 2020, engine rebuilt in 2009 (just serviced), new autopilot and VHF, new davits... And the list goes on.
An enclosed cockpit with solid dodger and hydraulic winches for sheets and halyards makes this stand out trimaran a safe and stress-free cruiser.
The opportunity to pick up an honest, well-priced trimaran of this size does not come along often. Let her take you on unforgettable cruising adventures around Australia, then plan to head off into the blue beyond when the world's borders reopen.
