Atkins Double Ender Sloop
A traditional design with classic lines and a double ender hull that will appeal to the timber enthusiast. This beautiful ketch is a work in progress and is looking for a new owner to finish the interior so that she is fully restored to her former glory.
She competed in the 1956 Sydney to Hobart and has lost nothing of her charm and sailing appeal. The hull is Oregon planked as are the decks. She is fitted with a Volvo 38HP engine and has had the rigging recently serviced and comes with a full compliment of sails in great condition. Two new self tailing Barient winches are another example of the intelligent upgrades that have been added to the boat.
She was anti-fouled in July 2011 and has full length covers and spray dodger. A piece of maritime history, this will delight a new owner and is ready for inspection.
