Broker's Comments

Designed as a racing yacht by David Lyons this 65 foot sailing yacht was built in aluminium in 1996 by Applied Alloy Yachts, Melbourne, Australia and has competed in many Sydney Hobart races, winning PHS Division in 2001 and in her new guise as a performance cruising yacht has recently completed a circumnavigation.
Refitted between 2002 and 2004 in Australia, she was reconfigured as a comfortable performance long-range cruising yacht. Additions for her new role include: a new comfortable interior, a new generator, air conditioning system, water maker, additional fuel and water tanks, furling boom, music and video entertainment center and a modern navigation equipment. Although this refit added around 3600 Kg to her weight, she still has a very good turn of speed. Twin 75 Hp Yanmars on Sail Drives mean she is also no slouch under power, a dinghy garage, bow thruster and hydraulic winches complete the package.
