Nelson Marek 43 Quest.
Now for sale in Mooloolaba! Very well known race boat now available to new Owners.
Launched in 1994, Quest won at Hamilton Island, the Telstra Cup, and was second overall in the Sydney Hobart. She also won the Sydney Mooloolaba and was then shipped to Hawaii where along with Ausmaid and Ragamuffin, won the Kenwood Cup. She then returned to Australia and was one of the 44 finishers out of a starting lineup of 115 yachts in the ill fated 98 Hobart in which she finished fourth overall and eighth over the line.
Absolutely complete sail inventory including full Cat 1 plus delivery and regatta sails. New rod rigging 2015 plus many thousands of dollars worth of upgrades for 2016 Sydney Hobart. 8 Lewmar winches, new Yanmar 3JH2 sail drive fitted in 2014, and all the normal race gear. This a rare opportunity to go racing in a very competitive yacht at minimal cost. Grab a few sailing mates and form a syndicate. Four of you will pay $41,250.00 each, or asking $165,000.00 for outright sale. (the sail wardrobe probably cost more?)
