Jarkan 925 - Sapphire Dancer - $44,000

Sapphire Dancer, a 30ft yacht built in 1986 by the legendary Yacht builder, Kanga Birtles, of Jarkan Yachts, is now for sale exclusively with the team at YOTI on Sydney Harbour.

She was originally built and specified for a fastidious pilot and has now come full circle owned by Kanga himself. For a 30 ft yacht, she boasts a considerable amount of room down below, is clean and tidy and presents very well. Sapphire Dancer has been set up for single handed sailing and incorporates a Raymarine ST4000 Autohelm on the tiller steering system. Kanga himself has sailed her single handed to Hervey Bay return and also single handed to Hobart return.

Sapphire Dancer has proved herself to be a very competitive and easy to sail yacht. She is a powerful, seaworthy and competent 30 footer and is ready to move on to an enthusiastic new owner for the upcoming summer sailing season.

Please call YOTI Sydney Harbour for an inspection on Middle Harbour today.
