Fidra is a 2006 Hanse 370e that is now listed exclusively for sale with the team at YOTI on Sydney Harbour.
Representing one of the most popular models globally by the German manufacturers, the 370e's still prove to be extremely sought after. The 'e' represents the epoxy used in the hulls layup making for a lighter / stiffer / stronger and virtually osmosis proof hull for life. Fidra is the two cabin option consisting of the generous owners cabin forward, good sized saloon opposite dual seating which doubles as the nav area, impressive head and shower, a big extended galley leading to the internal access to the storage garage (also accessible via the cockpit) and finally the second large double cabin. The storage garage comes with a mattress so the space doubles as accommodation when needed. Lee cloths are fitted throughout.
The stand out features on Fidra (further to the usual easy / quick / quality that comes with the brand) is her overall condition and also her solid list of extras; overlapping genoa (in addition to the self tacking jib), spinnaker, storm jib on a removable inner forestay, a proper electric autopilot plus a new Hydravane windvane steering system with independent removable rudder, the full six winches (a major upgrade on original purchase) plus an additional electric multipurpose winch in the cockpit which assists with sail hoisting and reefing etc. Standing rigging was replaced new in 2014. The chart plotter at the helm and many other electronics were installed new in just 2019. There is a second chart plotter at the nav station.
These yachts are simply a joy to sail either racing with a crew or quite literally cruising just one up. The mainsheet is naturally controlled by the helm on an upgraded traveller.
In the owners words; "Fidra has spent most of her life in the Swan River in Perth doing mainly jib and main short river racing. She has sailed a few times to our local island 'Rottnest' and has competed in several Port Geographe regattas (spinnakers included) where we regularly finished in the top 3 or 4 boats in our division; one year we won our division for the week outright. Much celebration followed - "Quick boats those Hanses", cried the crowd! Fidra has recently arrived in Sydney from Perth via the Great Australian Bight. We averaged 6 knots over the 2200 NM voyage. She handled the conditions with ease. "
The beauty of this package is the solid cruising set up coupled with a stunningly simple and exciting yacht to sail.
