Song of the Wind (formerly Storyteller & You’re Hired) is a beautiful example of this brilliant model from the drawing board of Bruce Farr – a powerful cruiser racer which is equally at home racing or comfortably cruising the oceans.

In the last 18 months she’s had everything checked, tested, re-worked, upgraded or replaced to the point there is nothing left to worry about. This is one of the most spacious and well appointed yachts you’ll ever set foot on, ideally set up as a live-aboard, for luxurious long term cruising or simply weekends away. Ready to race or cruise this is the ultimate multi-purpose boat for the East Coast of Australia and beyond.

With an extensive sail wardrobe and a substantial inventory, she offers much to the ambitious owner. Sleeps 8 in three cabins plus the saloon. In her third ownership, always in Sydney and never chartered. This is a must-see.

- New standing rigging in 2017
- New bimini and dodger
- New Raymarine chartplotter
- New stove
- New TV
- Windlass recently serviced and new anchor chain
- Full over boom boat cover to protect the teak decks.
- In boom Leisure-furl mainsail for easy sailing
- German mainsheet system, running back to a winch by the helm to enable short-handed sailing
- Drop down transom / swim platform with long ladder
- 6’4” headroom (min.) throughout below
- Forward owner's cabin has a full hanging locker and en-suite bathroom
