Constructed in 1987 at Ballina Boat building to a Bruce Roberts design, ‘Trekka’ offers three sleeping berths that will accommodate five guests plus a couple more on the saloon lounges.

The Saloon is roomy and comfortable featuring a warm ambience from the timber panelled bulkheads and cabin lining. The lounges will seat eight and can be converted to a double berth by dropping the table.

There are loads of storage options aboard including under the beds that will provide support for extended passages.

The starboard-side galley incorporates full size sink and double burner Cooktop with separate grill which is opposite to the nav station. Lifting the map table opens the top-loading fridge

Her bathroom incorporates a holding tank for the head that was installed in 2010. The Standing Rigging was last replaced in 2015 as precautionary measure. The mainsail cover and bimini were replaced in 2019.

In 2020 the fuel tank was serviced and resealed.

In 2023 the grey water holding tank was replaced.

Her original Volvo MD17D diesel was replaced in 2010 with a Nanni N4.38 (38hp) that currently has 131 hours logged.

Her current owners are reluctantly selling and looking for Trekka’s next devoted owner to keep her sailing. Given reasonable care and maintenance, she will be cruising for another 36 years.
