White Rabbit is now in Langkawi, after recently making the trip here from Penang. She is actively back on the market, and ready for some lucky lover of these classically designed boats, to swoop in and give her the TLC she needs. She is in need of new house batteries, and a general run through of all her equipment, and from her updated photos, you can see she is in good condition. \
She is being sold for the price of $50,000 USD as is where is. This is an ideal opportunity of a lover of these boats to obtain a very well loved and cared for boat. 

She comes complete with a water maker, a central heater, Bimini and Dodger covers and sail bag ( new in 2021 and 2022), a full inventory of navigation electronics, inclusive of a radar, 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.


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 her 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. 
If you are in the market for a classic designed boat with everything you need to set sail ASAP, in a trusted, well built boat, then this boat is definitely worth looking at. 
Please contact me today to arrange a viewing appointment. I now have easy access to her for fresh videos and photos as needed.
