UK designed 61ft Robert Clark 1950 Ketch "SOUTHWINDS" is exclusively for sale with DBY Boat Sales

The fastidious owners have restored and maintained this yacht to the highest levels possible, she is beautifully built in Huon Pine and spotted Gum hull with Teak decks. A 2019 Yanmar 110hp is installed and shows a low 1030 hours, serviced June 2023.

"SOUTHWINDS" is well known and has been respected from the day she was launched at the shipyard of John Hayes & Sons, Sydney, experts in the art of traditional boat building. She catches the eye of discerning sailors everywhere she goes.

All sails are furling, main, mizzen and genoa from the over sized bronze deck winches and the safety of the cockpit.

Designed to comfortably live aboard for coastal or blue water ocean cruising.

A fascinating feature of "SOUTHWINDS" is that it is one of the few boats with a wooden bath.  Presumed to have been installed to make family passages more comfortable.

Currently in full survey and being run lightly as a charter yacht for corporate and prestigious guests, mainly on Sydney Harbour with advance bookings.
