    A very interesting find indeed.

    At a great initial asking price too if it has no major issues.

    I met this boat in North Queensland in 2013-4, and published photos of it under sail in one of my articles about cruising on Arion.  It was very fast.  However, I know it late suffered serious rot problems below the waterline (plywood construction), due to being neglected by a subsequent owner.  To what extent these have been addressed I do not know.  As with any boat, survey with care.
