OFFERS WELCOME HUGE PRICE REDUCTION The Jubilee Class was initially designed for the waters of Port Phillip Bay. The class was designed in 1935, the jubilee year of the British Empire's yachtsman monarch, King George V. During the previous yachting season there had been two severe gales and many yachts foundered. Yacht fleets were severely depleted so there was a needed for a new and popular racing class. The jubilee Class was chosen because it was powerful, stable and able to safely withstand big seas and strong winds, It was a good size to slip or launch from the beach and it had strict one design measurement system to ensure quality one design racing. 'Jabiru' was built in Victoria by A Russel in 1939. Built with quality NZ Kauri ribs, Huon Pine below the waterline and Philippine Mahogany above. She is one of the best presented Timber yachts I have seen. 'Jabiru' is a very successful racing yacht competing in the vintage boat series at Goolwa and winning the last 2 Milang Goolwa Yacht races. She is a beautiful boat with ready to sail and as a bonus comes with a galvanised trailer making it a boat that could be easily transported interstate or you could use it to pull the boat out for routine maintenance. This beautiful boat also comes with a full history and original documentation. So if you are in the market for a traditional timber yacht you can be extremely proud of this is a great boat and is well worth a look.
