International 8 metre "Juana"
“Juana” is a modern International 8 metre designed by Garry Lidgard and built by Keith Dobson Boat Builders. She is a powerful and competitive racer. Craftsmen built, Juana's hull and deck are a timber/fibreglass composite with solid timber celery-top pine frames and decks, stripped planked with Huon Pine and glassed inside and out with West System. A wooden classic with the maintenance benefits of fibreglass. Seeing this superb classic yacht powering to windward will make your heart beat faster. Classic, timber boat lovers will find her hard to resist. Auxiliary power is electric. She is professionally maintained. “Juana” is priced realistically at a fraction of the cost to build and fit-out a vessel of this calibre. Construction scantlings meet Lloyd's Register International 8 Metre Class Rules.
“Juana” lies in Hobart, Tasmania. She is reluctantly offered for sale because of ill health.
