Gold Coast to Hillary’s WA April 2018

Sold to Steve in WA, Murray and I set sail for the Gold Coast for the long trip. Great weather virtually the whole way made it a very pleasurable trip. Unfortunately the port stabiliser ram broke east of Esperance so a little less stable for the final week. Stop off in Albany to pick up Steve and his brother for the home stretch.  Note the smooth water is Bass Strait and the traffic on the radar. Thank you Murray for your excellent crew work and fastidious organisation of the vessel.

Sydney to Gold Coast July 2016

Another totally pleasurable beautifully finished vessel to deliver. Being on a boat which has all the luxury items ticked off including stabilisers which worked fantastically meant the delivery was such a joy. Weather was great after we waited out the 40kt westerlies that had been hitting Sydney for 24 hours. This boat as well as being luxury was also very well fitted for sea going conditions (cup holders, fiddles on the stove etc)

And by the way, that is a spa tub big enough for 4, in the photo below under the blue cover.
