Tal Searle Timber Sloop 39' Classic
Price AU $49,990
Traditional styled and constructed sloop built strong using New Zealand Kauri, Celery Top pine and her hull has been sheathed in Dynel. She offers a spacious cockpit with wheel helm, a cosy saloon capable of accommodating at least six around her drop leaf table and whilst considered to be a four berth boat she can sleep up six. Slipped and antifouled mid 2018 she comes with a very tidy Westerbeke diesel with less than 200hrs and a nice new sail wardrobe. For those looking for a minimal draft she has a very easily operated dagger board taking her sailing draft from 1.65m to 1.02m. We're impressed with her polite sailing manner and easy of handling and would suit the short handed sailer looking for that classic style. A pretty boat certain to not only turn your head but capture your heart.
