This superbly maintained, fully equipped Alan Buchanan 38 'Vashti Sloop is now for sale and ready for sailing. Waylemina was built by M.A. Cropp, Commandor of the Mersey Yacht Club in Devonport, Tasmania and launched in 1969. Typical Buchanan elegance with a stunning sheer line turning up to a superb long counter. Waylemina is very manageable and easily sailed alone or by two people. Waylemina has had a successful racing career, including participating 3 times with good results in the Melbourne – Devonport race and twice in the Queenscliff – Devonport race in the early 70s. In 1984 Waylemina was sailed from Australia to Sweden via the Cape of Good Hope. The current owners (the fourth since being launched) have had Waylemina for 30 years. Having contact to the boatbuilder, and previous owners, Waylemina has a very well documented history with original drawings, original racing certificates etc. Waylemina is moored in the wooden ships harbour in Aarhus. She has sailed extensively in the Scandinavian waters and the Baltic Sea. Completely renovated in the yard 2004-06 Solidly built with substantial rig. Length 11.85 m, width 2.85m. Depth 2 m.
