Farr 37 "Nire Lowa II" SOLD
The Farr 37 cruiser/racer boasts a solid heritage having been designed by Bruce Farr and built by Cavalier Yachts, Australia. “Nire Lowa II” has been a part of the Hobart yachting scene from new. These solid sea boats have proven their offshore capability in Sydney to Hobart and other offshore races and are competitive club racers today. Racing aside, these comfortable sea-kindly yachts are just as at home cruising Tasmanian waters and beyond. Cruising is made easier by such features as a furling headsail, lazy-jacks to manage the main, cockpit sail management systems, an electric anchor winch, an electric toilet in a private bathroom with a hot/cold shower etc. “Nire Lowa” has benefited from a solid programme of upgrades and maintenance by her three owners.
