Sydney 38 - Asylum - $115,000

Asylum is a Sydney 38 moored in Adelaide and exclusively For Sale with YOTI.

Best known for its One-Design racing the Sydney 38 has also proven itself in some of the most challenging of offshore races. Designed to excel in the most demanding situations, its combination of power, simplicity and exceptional performance also allows it to crossover as a very practical family twilight yacht.

With its large open cockpit, the Sydney 38OD affords ease of movement when racing and but is equally as comfortable whilst family entertaining. As one of the early Sydney 38's "Asylum" presets as well as a much later example, and has been constantly and continuously upgraded throughout her career. With a brand Doyle regatta main, J2, J3 and masthead spinnaker, Asylum represents excellent value and is one of the best examples of these great yachts.
