MrFB 0 Posted September 19, 2016 Share Posted September 19, 2016 I've recently bought a Alan Wright Nova 28ft yacht. It is in Waikawa near Picton and I'm looking for an experienced skipper and possibly one more crew member to help me sail it up to Auckland. I've done quite a bit of sailing myself, but I'm not confident enough to make the tricky journey up to Auckland. Also looking for some advice when would be the best time to sail her up (ideally before Christmas) and the best route to take. Any tips much appreciated. A little bit about the yacht; Built in 76 the previous owner cruised and raced Arcturus II since 1982. She has an excellent racing record, has full head room in the saloon and is strongly built and rigged for Wellington/Cook Strait conditions. Her hull is constructed of double diagonal kauri planking glassed over, she has a fin keel and cutter/sloop rigging with a very full sail wardrobe. The 21 HP Kubota 3 cylinder diesel with Nanni marine conversion has been professionally serviced and is in excellent condition. She sleeps six in 2 single berths and one double, has a separate head, two compasses, two anchors with chain, a depth sounder, chart plotter, 4 person life raft and inflatable dingy. Cutter/sloop rig Excellent sea boat – many Cook Strait crossings. Good race record and comfortable cruising.
