This yacht is the first in a new series of performance orientated cruising sailboats built by Jarkan, and is the latest design from Murray Burns & Dovell, exemplifying a perfect blend of modern design and traditional seakeeping qualities. An all new design, continuing the theme of the ever popular Jarkan 10.5 and retaining some of the key ingredients that made it one of Australia’s most successful production yachts.
The privacy and comfort of the aft cabin, a spacious and workable main saloon and galley area. Reliable and well engineered rig and equipment. A boat you can live on and cruise in comfort and style.
This boat is not an old racer revamped, but was purpose designed in 1999 to be a fast and truly seaworthy cruising yacht, for coastal or global cruising.
