1998 Davidson 59

Locally built for the late Bob Oatley as a harbour racer by master shipwright Darren Williams and enjoyed for some years for twilight racing on Pittwater this sleek harbour racer needs some cosmetic work, but the bones are good and it had new rod rigging in 2019 and has a 9/10 Carbon mainsail. Originally with just an outboard the yacht was later fitted with a Yanmar 40hp which has just 400 hours of use and was last serviced in March 2020.

The yacht was donated to the Making Waves Foundation, but is no longer required for the current programme, so its time for a new home.

It would make an excellent corporate billboard racing on Sydney Harbour or elsewhere and all serious offers will be considered.
