Elliott 10.5 - High Anxiety - $49,000

High Anxiety, a modified Elliot 10.5 is proudly and exclusively listed for sale with YOTI.

Built by Stilwell Boats and subsequently modified with a new rig, lift keel and casing, and hull extended to 10.8m with design modifications by Ian Murray & Associates and High Modulus NZ. High Anxiety is a seriously competitive head turner at an entry level price point, a race yacht that has been very intelligently improved throughout her time on the water. Further improvements were crowned with a carbon fibre bow sprit built by Northshore Marine on Pittwater in 2014 offering what we all want: less reliance on crew numbers - bigger kites - more fun.

High Anxiety's recent results speak for themselves with victories in both inshore and offshore racing, including winning her division in all of the following: 2017 Sydney Harbour regatta, 2016 Pittwater to Coffs, 2015 Bird Island Bluewater, 2015 Pittwater to Newcastle Bluewater, 2015/16 RPAYC Summer Inshore Series.

Hull topsides were resprayed in 2015 and it shows. Further recent updates include new Raymarine auto-pilot components (making your delivery home easy), new AIS / Bluetooth stereo with cockpit speakers / electric marine head / LED lighting / keel fairing.

You will look good in this boat and you can win races in this boat at a fraction of the cost of her main competition. Contact us for more and to inspect on Pittwater.


At this time we are still able to conduct limited local in-person inspections, by appointment only. We also offer Facetime or WhatsApp real time video inspections onboard. Please contact us for more details.
