ETCHELLS CHARTER

Charter for Nationals 2013 –  AUS 249

Don’t let the hull number fool you, in the right hands AUS 249 is a rocket ship, in 2012 AUS 249 had a full rebuild and re-rigging, this included a ring frame and new mast with full brolgas and a full keel and rudder refair.

AUS 249 is a stiff boat and with a keel weight of 987kgs she is 22kgs heavier than the newer boats which is perfect for sailing at Southport.

As a testament to the refit AUS 249 had zero breakages during this year’s Mooloolaba Midwinters.

I’ll drop off and pick up from Southport.

If you are interested or have any questions please let me know and I can send you a link to heaps of high resolution photos so can see what you are getting.

Cheers,

Peter (0459 992 600)
