Sydney 38 - Faster Forward - $112,500

Faster Forward is a 2001 Sydney 38 One Design lying in Sydney Harbour and exclusively for sale with YOTI.

As Hull 31 of 68, Faster Forward is a great example of this ever popular yacht and represents an excellent and affordable option for One Design or Saturday or Offshore IRC racing.

Faster Forward has been well maintained by her owner with several recent upgrades including a new carbon pole, backstay ram, several new offshore sails and new floorboards. She's currently rated Cat 4 although is not far off Cat 1 if you're keen to race her offshore. Her interior is dry and inviting with a lot of room and has the optioned pipe cot set up in both aft cabins.

Her 30 hp Yanmar engine and sail drive have been serviced regularly and she has also been recently been antifouled and polished.
