Sparkman & Stephens Defiance 30
Price AU $34,000
Turn key and ready to go. This S&S Defiance has been very well maintained and used primarily as a club racer, and a very successful one, winning the current and previous 2 years' 'Manly Combined Clubs' series. Not only does she have a good turn of speed but she is also comfortable below with seating for 8 adults around her folding timber table and berths for up to 5 people. Boasting recently installed standing rigging, a sweet Nanni diesel with just 136hrs, (last serviced in Jan 2023) a sail wardrobe in very good condition, rigging circa 2021 and new antifoul and Propspeed applied in July 2023. All in all, this well priced Sparkman and Stephens should delight the sailing purists whilst her comfortable interior should also keep the family happy. Please contact Australiawide Boat Sales on 07 3348 3177 to arrange a suitable day and time to inspect. She is located at a nearby marina a stones throw from our Manly Qld office.
