Nelson Marek 46 - Auric's Quest - $179,000

Auric's Quest is a 1997 46' Nelson Marek now exclusively for sale with the team at YOTI Queensland.

As a previous Hobart winner in 2002 "Quest" is currently berth on the Gold Coast and looking for a new competitive owner. The current owner has kept her in current racing condition with a new wardrobe of Evolution upwind sails and continued the careful maintenance of the boat since purchasing her from the CYCA 2 years ago.

Her pedigree and current condition makes her a very attractive consideration for any buyer looking at combining racing performance with enjoyable, manageable and social sailing.
