Bracken Timber Sloop
“Margaritaville” is a classic design from 1959 crafted with traditional skills of the wooden boat builder. Her condition and detail is eye catching from every angle.
She has a full length keel with a draft of 1.3m and a displacement that says comfort. Decks are clean and uncluttered. The cockpit is big and all winches are modern self-tailors.
Below decks, berths are in each rear quarter with a “V” berth in the bow. Galley and navigation station are mid cabin. The cabin is flooded with natural light and offers 6’3” standing head room.
Lift the tiller, bring out the cockpit cushions and the space with the aft deck push-pit seat become a fantastic space to mix with friends, admire the world and the vessel’s beauty.
The bright work of this classic is protected by a cover that’s light, well ventilated easy to fit.
“Margritaville” was recently slipped, anti-fouled and surveyed.
Contact an Ensign Sydney office to know more or feel the warmth from this classic.
