May is the time to sail north

We left Gladstone after some major work was done on Nimrod over the summer. She now boasts a brand new rig, including all shrouds, forestay and furler, and a new Tohatsu 9.8 hp outboard. Also solid targa infills, and new eArche 180 watt thin solar panels

We had a lovely sail north past our usual haunts.

Further north, helped by the good weather and South-east trade wind. The north side of Marble Island. Curlew Island. Carlisle Island. Cid Harbour, and finally Abell Point Marina in Airlie Beach.

Along the way we talked of all the cruises we have done in Nimrod since we bought her in August 2009, roughly four months a year for eight years.

And finally decided that this was a time to stop, and have a break from sailing, and put Nimrod on the market.

So, with more of a sense of peace than regret, that is what we have done. We spent about ten days in Abell Point having a working bee to fix a few things, clear out stuff to remove and clean her. She looks great.

Anyone interested in buying Nimrod should contact Multihull Central.

Either Brent Vaughan: ‭0418 670 751

or Chris Henry: ‭0408 814 770‬

I should prefer that the marketing was handled by them, but I have assembled a blog with Nimrod's  details which is available to view here.
I am confident that she is the best-equipped second-hand Seawind 1160 for sale in the country.
