Sold – Jutson 80 ‘Brindabella’

Brindabella needed no introduction when her owner decided it was time to sell. As a previous Sydney to Hobart Line Honours winner, this iconic yacht holds a firm place in Australian history and not just in sailing circles.

Brindabella also holds a very special place for the YOTI team as one of very first boats sold after YOTI was founded by Tim Vine and John Cowpe in 2008. We were honoured to have once again had the opportunity to help this grand old dame find a new home.

Her previous owner was very happy she had been bought by someone who not only wanted to preserve the name and great history of this boat but ensure that many more people could experience “The People’s Maxi” into the future and her legacy would continue. In fact, her new owners have just had preliminary acceptance by the Australian Maritime Museum to have her recognised as an historically significant vessel.

Brindabella will now call Adelaide home and from late 2021 Brindabella Sailing will offer people the opportunity to experience this famous yacht for themselves.
