Farr 38 Performance Cruiser

AU$55,000.00 reduced Sold

This 1980 Farr 38 performance cruiser is ready for her next adventure.

The design of the Farr 38 is popular due to the versatility it delivers her owner, as it performs whether cruising the coast or offshore, or having some fun as a club racer.

She delivers accommodation for six, a fully equipped galley with SMEV gas cooktop and oven and built in 12volt refrigeration, and a large saloon / lounging area. There is an internal toilet and shower with the added convenience of being in different rooms. Up top, a roomy cockpit.

The ever reliable 30hp Yanmar diesel delivers the power, and the vessel is fitted with solar panels, new (2018) batteries and a battery charger. A good NAV package including two Plotters and autopilot is included. The mast, boom, rigging and sails are all in a serviceable condition.

Binks Yachts of South Australia built yachts to the highest standards and to last, and this example has stood the test of time. The vendor is only selling due to age approaching, so here is your opportunity to get into a proven yacht. Call for an inspection and to discuss a great deal.
