28ft Halvorsen Sloop – A Project With History.
If you’re looking for a project to return a yacht back to her beautiful self then this is the boat for you.
Portia was designed by Trygve Halvorsen and launched in 1968, making her maiden voyage in the exciting Sydney to Hobart Race and proving her seaworthiness to handle such a passage.
She has been lovingly maintained over the years by one owner who sailed her regularly but now finds it has become too much to continue.
The new owner will be someone who can see there is life left in this beautiful yacht that needs a repaint on the deck and cockpit and the timber to be sanded back and revarnished. It won’t be a huge project but one that will reveal the beauty in Portia.
Some of her great features are:
• A new Volvo D1-31F, one cyclinder, diesel engine with only 20 hours
• A well designed and roomy saloon with a cabin in the bow
• Beautiful timber work in the interior
• Good storage space
• 6ft headroom
• Spacious cockpit
This yacht will be a great entry to sailing or upgrade from a smaller boat and providing lots of fun on the water. Portia is conveniently located at our Pittwater office so please call today to inspect.
