Custom-built by Master Shipwright
Price: AU $37,000
With attractive balanced lines, the master shipwright has put all his experience and knowledge into what could easily be described "as the perfect compromise between keel boats and trailersailers".
Wanda was built and has been maintained as a labour of love.
Built as a trailerable yacht, she presents with attention to detail and a practical and well considered layout.
Wanda is a strong lightweight with the encased lead bulb keel that helps create great stability, to counter the excellent rig.
Extensive set of sails, autopilot, well placed winches and all lines controlled from the cockpit.
Wanda has just undergone a recent refit and presents very well.
Wanda is a real head turner, but alas, most will only see her from the rear, unable to catch up.
As New registered dual axle trailer 2014, never been wet and in excellent condition is included in price.
