BENETEAU FIRST 45 BALANCE $335,000
One of the fastest most successfully campaigned First 45s, with carbon rig. A boat that’s sail inventory is insanely comprehensive. When last raced in Hobart by its owner it achieved a 2nd place in Division 3.



1.Pt-Stephens-2

 

 
WELLBOURNE 50 YEAH BABY $395,000
Modified, raced well and truly tested, again a boat that is ready to race south. Last year she achieved a 4th place in the very competitive Division 1 against boats like TP52, Kers and Farr 55.

COOKSON 50 PRETTY FLY III $735,000
When you talk Hobart over the past 2 years you can’t do so without mentioning the Cookson 50. 2013 saw this boats sister ship win both overall and Division 0. In 2014 this boat was 1st in Division 0. Unquestionably proven boats not just in this classic race and but many other offshore events.
