The Original Oracle is now for sale, 38 years young, first of the 7 built. Hugely upgraded over the last 18 years that we have owned her.

perfect for the family to cruise for a month over Xmas or just as at home racing in the Solo / SSANZ series,

Won the Round North Island Race 2018, 3rd in Coastal classic 2018.

too many xtras and upgrades to list here, see the Trade Me add.

Just dropped the price to 59k, cant beat it for a category 2 race boat that you can also do extended cruising with the family.

brilliant for short handed or solo races as well, all control lines come neatly into the cockpit.

Fancy doing 20 knots through Cook straight with the kite up, while making cups of tea !!, Oracle can do it all. very stable and seaworthy.

fits in a 10m berth, currently at westhaven on a cheaply rented private berth, that can be transferred to new owner.

Back from our Xmas cruise, though we did a 12 day circumnavigation of Great Barrier instead of going North to Bay of Islands. Caught plenty of fish and visited many great 

snorkeling places with the kids, including the Cove at Rakitu island.

Boat is now seriously for sale and price dropped to $54K includes everything ready for racing or cruising.

BBQ/Freezer/Solar panel/boom tent/ intergrated auto helm etc.

  An action shot of Oracle in the 2017 2 handed Round North Island Race, we placed 1st in Division 5

here she is creaming along under spinnaker in Cook Strait at about 18kn,me on the helm while max made tea and sandwiches below for lunch.

We were second overall until the stormy leg round East Cape from Napier to Auckland, All the yachts our size pulled into Gisborne but Oracle got through 

trailing all the larger yachts copping the worst of the storm. a very strong seaworthy yacht for 9.7m, getting through 6-7m waves and 50-60 knoys

head winds and an adverse 2-3kn current at East Cape is not for the faint hearted or a yacht that hasn't been set up properly.

Update, Oracle is being lifted out at Orams this weekend and getting new antifoul, if any prospective buyers would like to come down and inspect the under water hull etc.
