White Rabbit at sea 2

Having a major refit in New Mexico, in 1999, and extensive upgrades and work done in New Zealand, in 2008/2009, White Rabbit has been lovingly nurtured and maintained by its current and past owners. She is hull number 8 of this strong, classic blue water sailing boat, designed by the prolific famous designer, Philip Rhodes who was one of the most distinguished yacht designers of the past century. A brilliant designer whose boats were beautiful, fast, seaworthy, and comfortable.
White Rabbit is currently in Penang, and comes complete with a water maker, a central heater, fresh new Bimini and Dodger covers and sail bag, a full inventory of ready to go navigation electronics, inclusive of a radar, and batteries and solar to truly make you independent and free on your ocean adventures. Her Universal Mr-30A engine had a full rebuild in Phuket in 2019. She is freshly antifouled and ready to go.
Highly speced, if you are in the market for a classic designed boat with everything you need to set sail ASAP, in a trusted, well built, well maintained boat, then this boat is definitely worth looking at.
