Broker's Comments

A great fast passage maker and quick in light airs this Farr 50 was previously extensively raced including the Kodak Asia Pacific Championship and Sydney-Hobart Race in December 1992, when she was first in class and second overall in the Sydney -Hobart and placed second in the IMS fleet for the Asia Pacific Championship.
Previously owned by David Nathan of the Lion Beer Company she is a well known boat in circles.
Extensively refitted over the last few years she has been re painted inside and out, all the deck hardware has been replaced, including new winches, and the interior re worked to suit comfortable living, she has been sailed two handed from New Zealand to Thailand where her open plan interior is ideal for the tropical climate.
