Herreshoff 30 Sloop GRP Raised Cabin in Excellent condition.

Price: AU $37,500
Tarka, is an excellent example of the Compass Yachts (NZ) Herreshoff 30 in GRP and raised coach-house.
Compass Yacht received L Francis Herreshoff's approval for John Lidgard to alter the H28 design, by using more ballast, better draft, wider internals, overall longer (29' 7") and provided larger cockpit, compared to the traditional H28.
The fastidious owner of Tarka has maintained the boat in a very high standard, with lots of upgrades, all the maintenance up to date, with the boat being well prepared to go cruising.
Includes unique rear duckboard, that lifts out of the way when not in use.

Herreshoff designed boats have a great reputation for their impressive sailing ability, even in the most difficult conditions.

Available for inspection at Tin Can Bay Marina, with notice.

Marina berth at Tin Can Bay Marina may also be available for potential buyers.
