So why am I selling this great little yacht? Good question, so get in before I change my mind.
Well the reason is I am finishing work this year and am looking to buy a bigger yact to sail further afield and possibly live aboard. Good as she is, Meteor is a bit small to cross oceans safely and spend more than a couple of weeks on.
Meteor is currently lying at Tin Can Bay, Queensland. She was hauled out, antifouled and FULL SURVEY done late 2013. This survey is available to potential buyer. Call or sms me on ******8879 + click to reveal  with questions please. Bruce
