Young 88 Cruiser/Racer
Price AU $37,500
Young 88 "Red Jam", one of NZ'er Jim Young's most successful designs. Over 200 built worldwide. A design that can both cruise comfortably and race successfully. Red Jam is built of strip planked cedar, epoxy saturated and dynel sheathed, a method that makes for both a light and stiff yacht. Red Jam differs slightly from the stock design with a lift keel and a transom hung rudder. Red Jam is ORC1 rated and has been successfully campaigned under current owner of eight years, 1st 2016 and 2nd in 2018 in the Surf to City (PHRF & ORC1). She is Cat 3 rated and has competed in four Brisbane to Gladstone races. She has an extensive wardrobe of Racing and Cruising sails and has always been well maintained. She is definitely worthy of inspection and is located here in Manly, Qld only a short walk from our Office. Call today to arrange an inspection.
