Details
Whistling Kite is a BayCruiser 23, designed by Swallow Yachts UK and built here in Australia by Denman Marine Tasmania.
She is thought to be the only one of her kind in Australia, and also built using wood/epoxy adding to her uniqueness.
A beautiful, classic style cruiser, designed with sailing performance and trailerability very much in mind.

Her lightweight carbon rig makes her a delight to trailer. The mast is easy to raise, and she can be fully rigged from the trailer to launching quickly and easily.

A unique feature on the BC23 is her water ballast system, making the boat extraordinarily straight forward to tow, launch and recover, and very quick in light winds too. In tougher conditions, or when you just want the security of knowing you have a self righting boat, simply fill the tanks, and the whole character of the boat changes.

Sails include a Storm Bay (Kettering, TAS), cream coloured and in very good condition. The Jib is on a roller furler.
Main on lazy jacks and boom sail bag, two reefing points on main. Both reef lines brought back to the cockpit.

Deck fittings include Barton winches and jammers, Ronstan Mainsheet block.
All sheets and halyards are in very good condition and brought back to the cockpit.

Ideal for overnighters and weekenders, the cabin features a large V-berth forward and to 2 quarter berths, accommodating 4 adults. A galley space and sink with 50 litre water bladder for fresh water storage. There is also a Fiamma portable chemical toilet.

Sitting in an outboard well is a Tohatsu 6hp, 4-stroke engine. Purchased new in late 2016, low running hours, fully serviced.

The cockpit is comfortable and roomy with all sheets and halyards easily within reach. For nav purposes there is Hummingbird 788 DND GPS fitted. Additional electrics include Electric (& manual) bilge pump, Deep cycle 12V battery, Navigation lights (LED), Interior lights (LED) and Electrical switchboard

Included is a Dunbier 4 wheeled trailer.

Beautifully built and exceptionally looked after and maintained, Whistling Kite has provided it's current owners with some fantastic boating experiences. Contact us for further information and to book and inspection.
