Degrees Of Freedom was professionally built in WA for her original owner with the specific brief of a very strong, well balanced, comfortable, fast cruiser capable of competing in the challenging waters off WA, Bass straight and beyond including the Sydney To Hobart. She proves to be exactly that and offers the convenience of an hydraulic lifting keel taking her draft from 2.6m to a convenient 1.6m with the press of a button. The keel housing takes up the centre line of the saloon, but clever design has her beautifully laid out for all her original design purposes. A massive aft cabin, a double berth forward and the large u shaped dining area along with the enclosed heads and big teak laid cockpit provide the space and creature comforts of a cruiser, whilst her centre line helm station, well designed cockpit and decks and systems optimum for crewing in race conditions. She has a well maintained Yanmar 3GM30 diesel with folding prop, a nice sail wardrobe in above average condition and rigging just four years old. Her hull and top sides are in superb condition but her Gelcoat on deck and in the cockpit show considerable wear. Down below she's clean neat and tidy with the sort of cosmetic wear and tear you'd expect of a well used yacht just over years old. Suited for those looking for a fast comfortable cruising boat or the enthusiastic racer who also likes to pamper their friends and family. Located at her yacht club berth here in Manly Harbour Qld and ready to inspect by phoning Australiawide Boat Sales.
