Little sailing since then, so items still in top condition.

The Easytow, tilting, galvanised trailer has never had its bearings / hubs under water and is in very good condition. It has heavy duty axle and springs, override brakes, 3 new light truck tyres and bearing buddies.
Much loved boat, fastidiously maintained and upgraded over the past 24 years by current owner. Boat stored under cover. Polished annually, the gleaming original gel coat is often mistaken for a much younger vessel.
Four times winner Geelong Trailable Yacht Festival: (3x) Best Presented Boat, (1x) Best Safety Fit out.
“Playmate” would suit a purchaser who is looking for a quality trailersailer to go sailing in immediately for many years of enjoyment.
The boat is based in Melbourne.
