April, For Sale Farr 40 IOR Racer Cruiser Just Listed, Price NZ $52,000, Length 40' 0" - 12.20m Vessel Location Auckland Launch Year 1983 Hull Material Composite Kevlar nomex foam, A yachting icon in New Zealand and around the world, and a veteran of some of the toughest international yacht races, Pacific Sundance has a heritage and performance record that has played a significant part in shaping New Zealand's place in yacht racing. Designed by Bruce Farr and built by Cookson Boats in 1983 to the highest standards in advanced composite construction, Pacific Sundance has flown the New Zealand flag in premiere race events, including The Kenwood Cup, Sydney Hobart, One Ton Cup, Southern Cross Series and short offshore races from the Three Kings, White Island, Coastal and Bay Race Week while additionally participating in Club racing. A consistent performer, placing at the top end, she also offers a high standard of comfort and practicality for cruising. "Sundance" has many friends and has provided scores of emerging young sailors the opportunity to hone their skills and seamanship on a highly competitive and expertly campaigned race yacht. Now, after 20 years of complete dedication to her cause, and maintained to the highest standards, the time has come to pass the Sundance mantle on and with it the custodial responsibility of maintaining and campaigning one of New Zealand's true modern classics. Sundance would be best utilized by a syndicate who enjoys great racing and cruising, as is well proven by the current owners, crew, family and friends. All important is an on-going commitment to cherish the yacht and add value to her legacy...
